“Work-life balance? What balance? Life is always a little out of whack,” she says. “The stars do not align themselves to make things nice and easy for you. Sometimes it’s as if the universe is deliberately throwing too much at you. As if it is forcing you to choose. It’s not about balance. It’s about choices.”

Fawn speaks at the nation’s largest companies and organizations and hears immense anxiety over this one issue. People feel such guilt they feel over having to travel or work late or miss events is depleting, consuming and powerful. They feel like they are missing so much. Like their children will resent them. Like others will judge them. Like they are doing things all wrong. Or, they have no time to just breathe and enjoy life. Fawn, who is ranked in the top 25 speakers in the famed worldwide “Leadership Gurus” list. says there is no issue of balance. It’s all about imbalance. It’s about making the imbalance work so you succeed professionally, raising children who are not juvenile delinquents — and not losing your mind in the process.
