From the authors of the bestselling The Game Changers, The Juggle features candid, real and raw stories for mums by mums, designed to inspire, uplift and acknowledge that the juggle struggle is real – and that we’re all in this together.
When authors Steph Adams and Samantha Brett published their first book, The Game Changers, Samantha was dealing with life as a new mum while Steph was heavily pregnant with a three-year-old toddler at home. Eager to learn the secrets of how other mothers try to balance everything in their lives, they began canvassing women around Australia and the world.
They quickly discovered that the modern expectation of mothers is demanding and unrelenting. Many are juggling children, partners, careers, families and their own businesses, all at the same time. Whether a woman is staying at home or working full time, raising one child or five, the juggle struggle is real. So many mums – no matter their age or background – are navigating the same dilemmas, posing the same question to themselves: ‘Am I doing enough?’
So just how can you do it all – and is that even possible? That’s where The Juggle comes in! The Juggle features a fabulous range of powerhouse mums, sharing their intimate thoughts, struggles, elations, successes and challenges in these raw, candid and often very funny interviews and essays. With intimate stories of what goes on behind the scenes of their seemingly picture-perfect lives, they’re here to let the mums of the world know they are not alone. And that, sometimes, something has to give.
Featuring Megan Gale, Pip Edwards, Lisa Wilkinson, Teresa Palmer, Megan Hess, Natalie Barr, Bianca Rinehart, Melissa Odabash, Sally Obermeder, Kathryn Eisman, Noëlla Coursaris Musunka, Zoe Marshall, Tammin Sursok, Nikki Phillips, Elle Halliwell, Laura Csortan, Louise Roe, Chriselle Lim and more, with stories of motherhood they’ve never shared before.
