    Approach your business relationship with male clients the way you might with romantic partners, suggests Liz Barrett for the DAYSPA blog.

  • Doing less housework may be better for a woman's career
    While the total number of hours worked (to include paid work, housework and child care) is close to even between men and women, men get paid for an average of 11 hours more of total work, writes Laura Vanderkam for AOL Jobs. Vanderkam suggests that the solution is not what you might think -- distributing paid and unpaid work more evenly between men and women -- but instead, for women to choose to do less housework, thereby freeing up more time for paid work.
