What are your dreams?

I dream of being a very, VERY successful business woman, but one that also has a tight knit family. One that doesn't work too much, but is a hard worker. Here are some interesting statistics....

Only 15 Fortune 500 companies (3.0%)and 28 Fortune 1000 companies (2.8%)are run by women. Only 20% of topmanagement positions in the U.S. are held by women.– CNNmoney.com, May 2009
Yet...“Companies with the most women in senior management positions had a 35% higher return on equity and a 34% higher return to shareholders.”
– Catalyst Study

I am 25 years old, have already held management positions, currently hold a senior position at a HUGE fortune company. I bought my first house when I was 22 years old (brave, but at the point of the highest PMI ever, so not the greatest move, but was "smart" at the time). I have my MBA. I am moving very quickly up the corporate ladder. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind I will be to 6 figures by 30, very close already and could have been there if I would have stayed at my last job, but made the move for my long term goals. This success doesn't define me though. Are there people my age more successful than me- hell yeah!, but...I have my own measure of success as do all of us and I have my career goals and personal goals. Balance is my key and my ultimate measure of my success.
