the money and pays the bills melissa: even if you say do what ever you want the power is there. >> when it had presented their partners because of that that could cause a divorce but if someone does make all the money and with will you findill something else? melissa: a lot of women each have to ve their own separate account.s that is the society we are in. what you think abouthat? >> my mother what happens to the old saying what his is mine and what mine i mine. i melissa: i don't think so. think we are pass that. >> with independence that should be within therela confines.nd melissa: that mak no sense >> you have a good jointt -- dekalb but maybe 5% of each in, you can spend without
checking with the other person. melissa: now that starts to make sense. that is how networks in my house. so far so good. have come a long way baby. who says we cannot have that all? the former burberry ceo and she says it is impossible. a new study says the negative mind-set may actually give you the advantage. you have to hear why. can you ever have too much ney?
times before taking a new job atapple. >> balances the big board one of the most important parts of my job you cannot have all. naturally be needed our favorites to weigh in on this. brace yourself. >> is this the truth? are they fighting words? [laughter] befo you get in troub and. >> let the ladies go first. >> she has a really intelligent and thoughtful point. she is living this the ceo wi three children andaid husband and she says here isur b our high rank responsibilities wife and mother first and ceo second what she gets right t is you can have it all but notst n all out one time. moment to moment he cannot be a great wife the andnd mother at the same time you you make executive decisions in@
the boardroom. melissa: i love what she h to say that i read her bio who is she kidding? sh has all. fashionable, she gets up at 430 in the morning eve day. what is she talking about? >> she has the 18 hour day but i will compartmentalize my life but you can achieve that level o success is. >> thais where y cannot have all. >> the three women who you do have a albrightere. but she focuses onbalance the most important word. having it all is the myth. ben do not have all we all a have to make a level of sacrifice period it is simplistic or nicaean kids a
fall to say it is the destination. >> the key word is bance.itie which is absolutely critical to us succsful career they in full for all of that sometimes the priorities get out of whack i took the last week of august off i was so tired and burned down i fell asleep.rg [laughter] d no reflection but i said iata vacation to check into ground myself did reconnect with my fiancee and my family. you have to say you are not a machine you cannot be a perfect mother and wife all the time. >> some of us are very critic. i am not there for my children. you feel guilty all the time.
there has to be give-and-take.tere she put herself out thereng that we always examined her life to say are you kidding me? you cannot have become the ceo without missing a activities she says wife and mother first but i don't know that i believe that the then michelle steinbersaysr leading in and leave the office at five but what do you dowh when you get home? are you on the black perry? people put themselves out there then be a tax. >> then they have helped. >> now i will lock gun the eggshells. [laughter] she did say something that is not totally honest but you can tell she doesn't exa follow her own example. you cannot say as the ceo is
more important to be a mother first. that is very hard too reconcile because in theory it is the most important job but if you are female surgeon but are you a mother first? no. you are a surgeon first we have t come to a point to is okay to keas sacrifices as long as the end justifies the mes. melissa: during the day she is the ceo first? >> est.hat >> that was my point moment to moment the priorities shift. also we are focused solely women.n. we don't talk about of mail ceo what is there workife balance?ba how are they dividing their day? >> they don't expect to have balance but without regeneration the man loves balance.
but now with oureneration they want more. >> but its almost more is acptable to say to read tohat my kids' classrooms and on an is it easier for us? you are totally rits because the expectation is of course, the mother's first obligation is to her children issues successfullyfull feels she can go to work she wi then somebody will help if she has accomplished athe workplace undersnds for though woman. melissa: is that true?epe >> it depends. with law firms they expect men have the work life balance.st so alloc ceos what you saveno affect the stock you know,
