Fantastic overall

I loved how engaging it was but disagreed with one thing; the lady who said that having it all was unrealistic. I figure it depends on what an individual defines as 'all'. Regardless of gender, no one succeeds by doing it all by themselves. I feel that it's possible to accept help from loved ones e.g. family or a partner and still achieve one's definition of having it all. Regardless, there were valuable lessons to be learnt from each person. Definitely the well spent!
