What I Learned About Work-Life Balance From Writing a Book About It

Online • May 26, 2015

Writer and author Susie Orman Schnall discusses her novel, The Balance Project, and how to break away from the damaging work-life balance paradigm.

Tuesday, May 26, 2015 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Work-life balance has been covered ad nauseam from all angles, and the media continue to perpetuate the myth that women can and should be able to do "it all," all of the time. Writer and author Susie Orman Schnall has set out to blow the top off that insane and damaging paradigm.

Through her popular interview series The Balance Project and her newly released second novel THE BALANCE PROJECT, Susie explores the concept of work-life balance and exposes the reality that every woman makes sacrifices and no one does “it all" perfectly all of the time

Susie will discuss:
1. The Balance Project interview series which has featured almost 100 women including celebs Tracy Pollan and Molly Sims and which was the subject of a feature in Fortune.
2. THE BALANCE PROJECT novel which explores the topic of work-life balance through fiction. (Spoiler: Ellevate and Sallie Krawcheck are featured in a pivotal scene!) THE BALANCE PROJECT, called The Devil Wears Prada meets Lean In is a "smart, refreshing, fast-paced read" about loyalty, choices, and balance that will resonate deeply with all women who struggle with this hot-button issue.
3. The top three things she’s learned about balance from conducting her interviews and writing her novel.
4. Balance hacks that work and what the most balanced women all do.

She’ll also answer questions about the publishing process, developing a platform as an author, etc.
