The most important decision that I made was becoming the primary breadwinner in my family. My husband and I were passing each other in airports with two small children at home. I had a consultancy that was growing, and I needed someone to help manage the business. My husband left what he was doing to become the managing partner of my firm and to take the primary role at home. I am so much happier in this role. It has allowed me to grow my business and do what I do best and what I enjoy. It might not be for everyone, but it is for me and I think the change is also what is best for my family.
