I absolutely agree that you need to attempt your career goals and then determine how a family will fit in later on when it becomes an issues. Once you have already acheived your career goals it may not be as unmanageable as you might think to add in a family to your career life.

I agree that the ideal way to climb the corporate ladder is to focus on career goals and then focus on family, however what happens when a woman such as my self has a family first, Does this put me at a disadvantage for a leadership role? or does this give me an advantage since I have been raising children and running a household successfully managing a budget, handling multiple things at once etc. I think leadership should not be defined depending on when a woman has a family but whether she can be an effective leader regardless of her situation. Men have families and nobody questions their ability to be a leader.
