Working Mum? Have Children When Your Husband Retires!
Xerox's CEO, Ursula Burns, has recently been asked what the secrets are to her success.
She attributes part of her success, as a working mum, to marrying a man 20 years older than her.
How she sees it, having an older partner meant childcare was never an issue: at a time when she was pushing her way to the top, her husband was retired and was able to look after the children.
What do you think about that? It's an interesting angle... one I hadn't really thought about before... I'm sure that is an approach that works for many women.
I'd love to hear your thoughts...
