I was at a dinner the other day when the speaker, a small dapper millionaire, who had built an empire spoke at length about his humble leggings. “I owe my success,” he said, “to my mother, who was just a municipal teacher. But she, though widowed in her early years, taught me courage, and instilled in me values that made me reach for the stars!”

I wish that mother had been there to hear those words.

So often, I have heard women tell me how frustrated they are, because they could not continue in their careers. “I would have been a brilliant cardiac surgeon,” said one, “but with my small children, I had no time for my career!”
