International Women’s Day

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might has well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.
J.K Rowling

A day late but here are two women that inspire me because of the way they combine motherhood with their careers.

Victoria Beckham – I grew up listening to the Spice Girls so watched as Victoria made the transformation from pop star to critically acclaimed fashion designer. Not only do I love her collections, I think she has a great business mind.

Helena Morrissey – was appointed CEO of Newton Investment Management at the age of 35, at a time when she already had 5 children. Now having 9, she is managing 400 employees and a 46bn turnover. She founded the 30% Club, wanting to see more women on boards.
