What happens when that isn't how your career unfolds? What happens when your partner's career takes off and yours takes a hit as the supporting half of the duo? How do you maintain your ambition when biology and the unyielding schedules of young children require that you slow down? Hana Schank and Elizabeth Wallace explore these dilemmas in their series for The Atlantic, The Ambition Interviews. It's a great read, so, I asked Hana and Liz to discuss their work with me. I was touched not only by their friendship, but their candor.
