Work and Love: Can We Have it All? Ask the Bachelor!


The struggle to achieve work/life balance is familiar to most working professionals, but what about work-love balance? In the age of the Blackberries, iPhones and the 24/7 workday, finding balance between your love life and your job is a challenge that is as common as it is difficult.

Just ask bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky.

On the current season of The Bachelor, Ali had to choose between her work and the show. She had exhausted her time off and had to return to the office if she wanted to keep her job. Sensibly, the Facebooksales professional chose her job. Then she changed her mind. But it was too late; Jake Pavelka, the Bachelor, would not take her back, despite having made his feeling for her very public.
