Best quote from this episode (feel free to repost this on your social channels!):

“The multiple roles of the primary breadwinner leads to complete overwhelm and exhaustion, on the slippery slope to burnout.”  (Sally McGrath, Guest on ‘Her Ambitious Career’ Podcast)

Guest Bio:

Sally takes ambitious, capable women who are on the verge of burn out to a thriving state. Sally says, "Being stressed out all the time has become normalised and I am here to help women stop wearing "busy" as a badge of honour.  Toxic work environments are a huge issue and my mission is to support women to put a stop to toxic and burnout cultural behaviour."

What does "ambition" mean to you Sally? "Ambition is in my makeup. It means purpose, drive and a desire to make a difference and leave a legacy."

If you were stuck on  a desert island Sally, what would you want to have with you? "Oooh can I have a few things? My besties, my dog, my partner, my family, coffee and wine! In no particular order; all are important!"
