Like so many of the working mothers they’ve interviewed, Becky Beaupre Gillespie and Hollee Schwartz Temple lead lives that resemble musical productions—with changing sets, a colorful cast of characters and lots of costume changes.
Neither likes to be categorized, but suffice it to say that Becky is (mostly) a journalist/speaker/blogger and mom of two girls; Hollee is (mostly) a law professor/blogger/speaker and mom of two boys. They are the co-authors of the forthcoming Good Enough is the New Perfect: Finding Happiness and Success in Modern Motherhood, which will be released globally by Harlequin Nonfiction in April 2011.
Based on data from more than 100 in-depth interviews, an exclusive nationwide survey, and the latest research, Good Enough is the New Perfect reveals a paradigm shift in motherhood today: More and more mothers are losing their “never enough” attitude and embracing a Good Enough mindset to be happier, more confident and more successful. Filled with inspiring firsthand accounts from modern working moms who have refused to settle for lives that don’t meet their personal definitions of success, Good Enough Is the New Perfect is a true roadmap for the incredible balancing act we call motherhood.
Becky and Hollee also write the work/life balance column for the ABA Journal, the nation’s premiere magazine for lawyers.
