So while most folks (read: underearners) were hunkered down, nose to the grindstone, six-figure women were busy promoting themselves. They got on the phone, networked like crazy, whatever it took to make themselves visible.

They used slow periods for strategic planning so that when the recovery arrived they were well positioned.

Did six-figure women have to work absurdly long hours, forfeit their femininity, forgo their happiness, give up all semblance of a personal life? Did their marriages hold up? Did their children suffer? Did they bear lasting scars from breaking glass ceilings or battling gender bias? Was it possible for anyone to become a high earner? Could I? All these thoughts raced through my mind at lightning speed while I was still on the phone with my agent.
