Each woman has her own set of challenges, which she overcomes in her own unique way. Some strive to constantly better themselves and remain one step ahead of the challenges that life throws at them, others work around conflicts and differences to move forward. Achieving a work-life balance is of course a common challenge which they always strive for.
