No One Tells You This: Happiness for the Modern Woman
We all grew up with conventions in place, expectations of what a successful woman looks like. Perfect marriage, perfect baby, perfect home and perfect job seem to limit one’s viewpoint of happiness.

Here’s a secret: You can be happy without checking off each of these cultural conventions. In fact, many women feel fulfilled living modern lives.

As the cultural norm shifts, women are embracing new options for happiness. You aren’t missing out by loving your life as it is.

Listen as Glynnis MacNicol joins Dr. Pamela Peeke to discuss happiness for the modern woman.
