The Having It All Project

Long time readers here know that I'm fairly obsessed with the concept of "having it all" - what it means to each individual, and the decisions we make along the way in its pursuit. The Having It All Project will shine a spotlight on what's missing from all of the articles and debate about it. I want a space where we can talk about how we actually make life happen: the tips and strategies, the things we hope to accomplish, the failures that sometimes happen along the way to finding whatever "all" means for each of us. I want to know how you're having it all in the right here and now.

The Having It All Project began in January 2013 and features a new post each week, with each guest writer revealing what makes their lives unique and how they make life work. A list of the interviews appears below, as does other blog posts of my own that relate to my journey towards having it all. Interviews closed at the end of 2013. Questions? Contact me at havingitallproject@gmail.com.
