Two-thirds of all women are caregivers. And if you're caregiving and working there is no balance. Your life is a circus. But you can be the RINGMASTER of your circus. You decide what goes into each ring: work, life, and you. You decide where and when the spotlight shines. Jennifer provides a framework for evaluating work-life decisions, as well as tactical solutions for getting it all done. With a lively facilitated discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to share their own strategies for being the RINGMASTER of their own circuses.

"Jennifer Folsom’s presentation during the Grace E Harris Leadership Institute’s Higher Ground Women's Leadership Conference was nothing short of inspiring. I have discovered through Jenn’s presentation that being a successful woman does not require me to become a successful juggler of all of the spheres of my life. Instead, I must build my village, craft my narrative, and focus on what is best for me and my family. Jenn Folsom has made a lasting impact on my views of successful women and of myself like no speaker, author or educator has in the past." - Dr. Robyn McDougle, Ph.D., Director, Center for Public Policy, L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs, Virginia Commonwealth University
