The popular proverb acknowledges that ‘behind every successful man is a woman’, and we have all grown up with the idea that virtually all successful men have hardworking wives, mothers or girlfriends working in the background to help them maintain this success. However, when it comes to successful women, we are somewhat spooked!
So, the question is, if behind every successful man is a woman, what is behind every successful woman? In her latest book, ‘Behind Every Successful Woman is…’, Audrey explores the Good, the Bad and the Mundane circumstances that ordinary women like her have navigated through to succeed. She illustrates that every woman can ‘have it all’.
This starts by being honest with yourself about what success means to you, regardless of whether others approve, putting in the hard work, being determined and ignoring the many temptations to give up. She gives tried and tested approaches (“the Good”), to help those who want to create, keep and build their lives and careers, as well as manage the lows (“the Bad”) and the distractions (“the Mundane”), of being a successful woman in the world today.
