Encore: Can Women 'Be, Do and Have it All'?
December 15, 2015
Hosted by April Joy Ford
Maybe it’s time to redefine and shift the paradigm to a 'redefined 2.0 version of an Alpha-Mom' that’s being, doing, and having on our terms based on the truth of our own true identity! Many women suffer from the ‘Alpha Mom Syndrome’; constantly giving of themselves (which is good until it gets competitive), being the perfect mom, corporate ladder climber/business builder, soccer mom, PTA volunteer, wife, and dealing with the pressures from society of being a woman that’s fit, feminine and beautiful. 'All' at the cost of being stressed, overwhelmed, and burned out! With the roles and responsibilities of women—often comes the risk of ignoring or diluting their own health, spirituality, parenting, love-relationships, happiness, and success until these elements are disrupted or eventually destroyed. The side effects of this destruction are causing an alarming rise in medicinal dependencies, suicides, domestic violence, abuse, divorces, disgruntled employees, anxiety, stress, depression, etc. Join April and her guest Beth Rosen from Goodness Gracious Living and writer for the Huffington Post to find a better way of being, doing & having it all.
