This is an insightful personal essay that delves into the experience of women in the tech start up field as well as the larger topic of women struggling to 'have it all' even with supportive partners and all the modcons of modern life. You take us on a journey through business success, showing first the ideal life, the one we are 'supposed' to strive for, only to vulnerably open up to the cracks that brought to other aspects of your life. In revealing the truth behind the curated perfection visible on the outside you offer permission and empowerment to say actually no I can't keep this up which I think is something female readers need to hear. Thank you for sharing it with HP readers, I'm happy I could nominate it.
