Emma knows first hand about the plight of the single, self-employed entrepreneurial mom—and she has strong opinions about it. Her no-nonsense attitude, frankness, and wit keep readers flocking. Emma challenges commonly accepted ideas about setting finite work-life boundaries and striving towards the always-out-of-reach balance. Instead, she inspires women to abolish unreal expectations, guilt, and antiquated ideas about what makes a “good mom” and a “strong woman.” Whether they’re married, divorced or single, Emma helps women define, and in many case redefine, what it means to be a professional woman in the 21st century.
Originally from Sycamore, Ill., Emma lives in New York City with her two preschoolers.
