We discussed why so many female breadwinners struggle to own and delight in the role and Jenny offers her insights into how to shift these resentments into joy!

Show Notes:

“I sent some messages out on social media and just said, have you been the main earner and if so, how did you feel about it? One of the messages stays with me. It was an American woman, and she said, I was the main earner for three years, and those were dark days in my life.”

Jenny is an executive coach, and author, who has found joy in her role of breadwinner for her family. In our chat today, Jenny sheds light on what it truly means both for a family, and from society’s standpoint, to be the female breadwinner. We also discuss how hard it is for many to enjoy their role, in the midst of what society’s pressures.
