Moms’ Success Stories: Too Good to be True?


As a working mother with a business of her own, I pay attention to stores about successful working mothers.  Recently, I read a profile of designer Tory Burch in The New York Times.  While there is no question about her business accomplishments, I noticed that the story she tells about her family life is similar to those of other successful women entrepreneurs.  Almost too much so; at least when it comes to regular family dinner.

These stories are painting the same picture; accomplished women with a perfectly balanced family life, including time to sit down with the family for a meal.  But are their stories true?

I wrote about why really successful working mothers may be skewing their own personal narratives in this week’s Huffington Post. Please let me know what your story is here or there.
