A Slice of Happy Book

“You can’t have it all. There. I said it.”


“Financial freedom, fulfilling relationships, career advancement, Zen-like patience, angelic children, a charitable constitution, toned abs, and uncluttered closets – from the big issues to the small, millions of North American women between the ages of 35 and 45 are careening into life’s unhappiest zone; most of them feeling the crushing pressure of balancing work, family, financial and health slices that make the whole pie of happiness unattainable.
A Slice of Happy was written not to answer the question, “Can you have it all?” but to answer the question, “If you can’t have it all, what can you have?”
Heather Korol, a wife and working mom-of-three believes that our happiness is masked by the struggle to balance the competing forces in our lives. The more she examined who had the whole pie, the more she recognized that no one had all the slices at once. Here journey from “motivational know-it-all” to “holy crap, I can’t do-it-all” is told in an honest, humorous style that will make you feel like you’re hanging out in the kitchen with your best friend while you lament unloading the dishwasher for the millionth time. Heather’s story will help women in their quest to find perspective, pick a slice, and enjoy a bit more happiness along the way.
