Imagine postponing an interview with Fidel Castro to take your daughter to her first day of kindergarten? That's exactly what Maria Shriver did. As a woman who has mastered the balancing act between career and parenting, she shares the lessons she has learned along the way in this audio program. With the tone of a trusting and trusted friend, Shriver boldly touches on such subjects as: the price we pay for giving in to our fears, as well as the relief we feel when we finally face them; the humiliation of swallowing our ego so that we can learn from an abusive experience; the rewards of taking risks and the pain of failure; the joy of finding someone we can love and the limitations of every relationship; how it's never too late to tap the wisdom of others, even our own parents; and the importance of taking what we do seriously without taking ourselves too seriously. Ten Things I Wish I'd Known - Before I Went Out into the Real World was expanded from Shriver's acclaimed College of the Holy Cross commencement address.
