Perhaps you envision-
- A woman who is bored, sadly waiting in the shadow of her husband's busy life.
- A woman who numbs herself by shopping all day, buying whatever she wants.
- A woman who has to entertain constantly, listening to and conversing with people.
- A woman who is twenty to thirty years her husband's junior whose primary task is to maintain a pretty face and nice figure.
Rarely has she been perceived as "kick-ass."
And, for the record, "kick-ass is not a term I frequently use, or even feel totally comfortable with broadcasting to the world as the title of this book. But the term is relevant, applicable, and after getting my mother's approval-she assured me, "Your grandmother would have gotten a kick out of you using it"-I determined it was a much better title than Kick-Donkey Corporate Wife.
At the time of this writing, I am celebrating nine years of marriage to a busy, traveling, corporate executive. Although my story doesn't hold a candle to the Corporate Wife who has been happily married for decades, I have been indoctrinated quickly into this role, so I know what it takes. As a wife and as a woman who excels in this exciting and challenging role, I was inspired when my husband came home from work one day and said, "Sweetie, you are kicking-ass!"
Those simple words of encouragement inspired the book, Kick-Ass Corporate Wife. I certainly have limitations in my role as a Corporate Wife that remind me I'll never ben perfect, and there's always going to be room for improvement. For you, the amazing Corporate Wife who is reading these words, if you feel overwhelmed, lonely, bored, or uncertain regarding what to do with your day (or your life), I've been there and I get it!
But here's the deal. If you're going to be a Corporate Wife, you might as well be kick-ass about it. So, welcome! I'm really happy you're here. Let's continue on this journey together, and we can start right now!
