Survival Strategies in a “Lean In” World: Real People, Real Stories, Real Solutions

In a world that has become increasingly fast-paced, overconnected and plagued by lack of boundaries, the notion of balance is insane and impossible to achieve. Rather than attempt the impossible, this session will offer a blend of practical advice and inspiration to attain a new equilibrium, redefine your goals and priorities, and try to attain some sanity. Whether you are grappling with motherhood, caring for elderly parents, managing the abyss of a home or all of the above, this session led by Lisa Belkin will offer you some levity, humor, real stories and great tips from real women for managing the day-to-day chaos of life!
