  Featured Question
Lyn writes, "I'm in senior management at a fortune 500 company and have just been offered a promotion. However, I have two young children and the new position would require considerably more travel and I'm not sure I want to spend that much time away from my family. How can I turn down the promotion without ruining my changes for promotions within the company later?" Natalie's answer
