Work/Life Balance: Success Against the Odds: Is This You?

Are you a woman with an inspiring story of combining your business and personal life?

A casting company seeks intelligent, accomplished, beautiful women who have discovered, defined and achieved their OWN brand of success. Women who are realizing their dreams in life, against the odds.

The advertiser wants to highlight stories related to success in business and entrepreneurship. Maybe the woman has worked in a male-dominated field. Maybe they juggle education and family to pursue ambitions and goals beyond everyone’s expectations.

The stories will be featured in a print campaign in major fashion magazines and other outlets, including the web and in-store promotions. In these portrait profiles, the advertiser will showcase how a woman’s work, family, perseverance and dreams have come together to create “a transformational and multi-faceted life.” These are not “triumph over adversity” stories, but stories of lives well lived.

Take a Bow and Maybe Promote Your Business – Submit Yourself as a Candidate?

You might want to be a part of the effort to celebrate women and their accomplishments for this national advertising campaign. And who knows, maybe your business will get mentioned too.
