I ALWAYS get asked about balance. How do I balance being a career woman, mom, wife, human, etc. My answer is always the same: There is never a perfect balance. One thing is always heavier one day than it is another. I had the best conversation about balance with Naketa Ren Thigpen, LCSW. She is a psychotherapist, trauma specialist, sexology and relationship expert who has become the go-to for fast-scaling married women entrepreneurs and power couples seeking to balance love and success without dimming or apologizing for their spirited ambition. During our chat she explains how to not feel guilty about being selfish and making time for yourself, maintaining emotional intimacy with your partner and creating barriers for the purpose of overall relationship growth.
