How she balanced being a successful professional and parent.

The importance of enjoying life’s journey.

Overcoming obstacles or career burnout and helping others do the same.

Her definition of success.  Beth made a conscious decision to take step back in her professional career and have less responsibility.  She explains why she made that decision and how not to let others or society define success for you.
