For many women with an ambition to forge their own path to the top of the career ladder, it’s a known fact that getting there is difficult, and full of challenges.
In an inspirational message shared on social media, Melissa David, Head of Growth and Engagement at the US-based firm Clyne Partners Chartered Accountants, illustrates how her mother dreamt for her to achieve success by marrying a CEO, only to be on the road to becoming one herself.
“My mother always wanted me to marry a CEO. She put me on the tennis team when I was young so I could join my husband if a client wanted to play doubles… she put me in ballroom dance classes so I would present well at gala events,” she wrote.
“She made sure I could say hello and goodbye in many languages so when he travelled I could join.”
“After a long week of meetings helping lead four different organisations I just realised something – I’m becoming the CEO my mother wanted me to marry. And now I’m crying on the tram because I wish she was here to see…It’s me.”
