Is it difficult for you to take time for yourself and disconnect from the internet, phone etc?
Here's how I'm tackling that challenge! 1. Active use of email vacation settings to set expectations on response times and relieve my guilt on not responding immediately. 2. Use of a social media email account. This is my email account which exists for no other purpose than to connect to social email, ecommerce and other sites. Fewer distractions and less time-wasting checking useless emails when all that stuff goes into a separate, no need to check constantly email account. 3. Scheduling chunks of time to get offline (or alternatively, scheduling the time I will be online). I'll confess, I LOVE It when I'm on a flight that does NOT have wifi! The fact that I have taken these measures is evidence of the difficulty.....and the reality is I want to be present, productive and focused on the stuff that matters (including my sanity).

Graduation is around the corner. What advice would you give to new college grads starting their first jobs?
Great question! I'm a little biased, but I recommend a company that's in startup or high-growth mode as there's a ton of opportunity to take ownership and shine.

You said you were an avid reader, what books do you recommend for help in skyrocketing your career?
Hey Maggie - that is an interesting question. I don't necessarily read to advance my career, but I do believe that being informed, aware and inspired are all good traits of leadership, and intellectual curiosity is always something that I look for in my teams. So along those lines -- read what inspires you, what makes new ideas build like cities in your imagination, what keeps you up at night and what makes you a better, fuller more experienced person. Any inventor will tell you that the best ideas sometimes come from really disparate, unexpected places. The more mental exposure you have, the better. Some cool books I've read (or re-read) in the last year: - Moonwalking with Einstein by Jonathan Foer - The Great Gatsby, by F Scott Fitzgerald - Freedom, by Jonathan Franzen - Atatürk: An Intellectual Biography, by M. Sükrü Hanioglu - The Alexandria Quartet,Lawrence Durrell - Too Big to Fail, Andrew Ross Sorkin

I actually have my sights on a lateral move into a new industry now. For me, it's not about making it to the top, it's about the skills I master, the experiences that build my knowledge and confidence, and the services I provide to the overall picture. I figure, if I master those - I can go anywhere and money will not be an issue.

Any advice for mid-career switch? I'm interested in business development, but I have 10 years and an MA in an entirely different field.
You don't say what your experience and MA is in but a career switch necessitates spending a fair amount of time really understanding yourself, from a functional perspective: have you spent 10 years in communications and now want to do biz dev in the same industry? or are you wanting to move from philanthropy to a for profit tech job. Either way - or something different - spend time understanding your own personal narrative and the skills that you've developed that translate into other roles. It's not readily apparent to many people how my being an attorney made me a great political fundraiser and then part of a Congressman's leadership team, but when I talk about my passion for and experience at advocating, evangelizing, research and community building, it makes more sense, at least to some. And most roles in any not for profit, corporation or public service involves some bit of selling and business development, so figure out what that is for you and your path to date, and then sell yourself! Good luck.

I chose the second option, but I will admit that if I've been in my current role of any length of time (say a year or more) then I am unlikely to take a completely lateral move - I will want the new position to offer something upward as well, whether that is pay, title, responsibility, or a promised (in writing) promotion within a reasonable time - or all four.

What helps balance having a career and being a mom, and is there anything we can do now to prepare for that?
Here's my very personal answer. My advice on this will not work for everyone, especially because of different cultural backgrounds. Tip 1: Align your career with your passion and purpose. When I leave my children each morning, I'm not going to work. I'm going to execute what I'm on the planet to do - advancing women and girls. I believe that doing so will make the world a better place for all of us, including them. Tip 2: Decide now that you will define your role as mother in a way that works for YOU. You will get enough messages from others about what you're supposed to be doing as a mom to make your head spin. That doesn't mean you have to be all of it! Focus on your highest and best use as a mom given your gifts...given what you can best contribute to guiding your kids. For example, my highest priority as a mom is engaging my kids in meaningful conversations. If they eat pizza 3 nights in row for dinner I can live with that. Tip 3: Ask for help! Trying to do it all is sooo yesterday. Achieving integration as a working mommy really does take a village. So start cultivating your village now. A circle of women who are committed to supporting one another can change the world. And if you've got friends who are already planning on not being working mommies - don't judge them. Because when you're stuck in a meeting, who do you think you'll be texting under the table to pick up your 1st grader? #mommywarsover
