Women are expected to meet demands and fulfill responsibilities in the professional world and at home. With professional and family obligations, talented, competent women often lock themselves into a "trap" of responsibilities and obligations with little to no time to pursue their talents or passions. As women strive to please their superiors, significant others and co-workers, they find themselves falling behind on the things that matter most. Thus, they fall into "The Strong Woman Trap." 
 
Author and Coach Sasha Mobley suggests that women practice certain methods to have the lives they want and the respect they deserve. In this podcast, she explains the "The Strong Woman Trap," the ways to escape from it, the secret to empowerment, and discovering the support that was there all along.
