I wrote A Chick in the Cockpit in honor of all the quiet sacrifices that women make on a daily basis. In this new era of formidable females, we are now faced with the constant pressures of being a leader at work while at the same time, being a leader in our homes, our relationships and friendships. Then, we are made to believe we must do it all to be worthy.

If we're leaning in anywhere, we're not living a balanced life. This story will prove that if we lean back and put all our trust in someone else, they have the power to make us fall.  It's a reminder to just stand up straight and be proud of whatever it is you're doing.  As long as you own your life, the soul of who you are will thrive.   Find out more...
