Work-Life Balance, From Jill Abramson (VIDEO)

Executive Editor of The New York Times, Jill Abramson, shared some valuable advice when it comes to maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

Comparing her view to one described by Sheryl Sandberg in her bestselling book, Lean In, Abramson believes that one of the most important steps in creating a healthy work-life balance is choosing a supportive partner who has similar goals in raising a family.

“If you marry someone who is an equal partner in raising the family,” Abramson said, “then I think you have a good shot at having some semblance of a healthy work-life balance.”

“It takes negotiation, and it doesn’t always come naturally,” Abramson added, “but in my marriage, my husband has had to put up with a lot more than I have.”
