"Don’t tell me what to do, and I won’t tell you what to do. That’s my motto. I have a lot of feelings about the decisions of my family members, but I don’t ever offer my opinion unless I’m asked. And that’s why I’m still invited to parties."

"If marriage and children interfered with men’s ability to make a living, they would have found a better way to monetize their value a long, long time ago." Capitalism doesn’t value the number of hours it takes to earn investment money. Capitalism values what money can do in the hands of an investor. Labor should be similarly valued, i.e., for what it produces and how much money it makes in the hands of the owner.
Here’s the link to the article on value pricing as the “great equalizer” for women lawyers, professionals and other career and working women.

Yes, we can. Everyone, however, dresses for their market if they want to be successful. This woman’s market may well love this outfit. My market at my age wouldn’t. Let’s not fool ourselves. Image and first impressions are all important. It doesn’t mean we can’t be authentic, it just means we do have to pay attention to the culture we live in and if we want to subvert it we may lose business as a result. It’s a choice in a life full of infinite choices.
