This episode of Glambition Radio got very personal for me, and you’ll hear why on the show.
Over 40% of women in the U.S. are the breadwinners for their family, and that number is growing fast! The economic shift calls for some major attitude adjustments, especially in relation to our partners and lives at home. On this week’s episode of Glambition Radio, you’ll hear what motivates former Wall Street lawyer Elizabeth McLaughlin to lead the discussion in this cultural revolution, and how her organization, 40 Percent and Rising, is helping women from all walks of life transition to their new role as the family’s principal source of income.
When Elizabeth first met her husband, her career as a Wall Street lawyer and Executive Coach was earning her ten times what he was earning. The traditional concepts of “woman’s work” and “the man’s job” just didn’t apply anymore, and she faced a whole new set of unique challenges. Her friends were struggling with the same issues, and Elizabeth realized that no one really knew how to act under these circumstances because there weren’t any role models for the newfound women breadwinner.
By clicking the play button at the top of this page, you can hear how Elizabeth is changing the public perception of who earns the money in her Glambition Radio interview here.
Elizabeth and 40 Percent and Rising have been featured on Forbes.com, The Huffington Post and in the New York Times. They’ve found the biggest hurdle women must overcome when they start earning more money than their partner is their low opinion of themselves. Our history – and DNA – practically dictates the man be the provider. The mission of 40 Percent and Rising is to make women proud of their accomplishments, encourage them to own their breadwinner role, and show them that being a woman today is about having choices.
Elizabeth and I talk about how we made our decisions, and the effect they’ve had on our families and work. I know you’ll get a lot out of this episode.
