Procrastination

  There is a reason it has been so long since I’ve posted. I’m just not sure what it is. “Write Blog Post” keeps getting bumped from my carefully tended list of action items. Why? Is it really because I’ve been busy? (Thought truly, I have been) Or is it a simple case of procrastination? […]

Lifestyle is a Matter of Age and Stage

When you meet a woman you know to be a mom, do you ask her how old her kids are? I know I have. I’ve just recently understood why. It is more than being polite. More than being curious. It is to understand her lifestyle. Our schedule, our energy, and how we spend our weekends […]

Heading Back to the Boardroom

Three years ago, while at the top of my game, I walked into my boss’ office and resigned. Just like that. People thought I was crazy. I’m sure they thought I was having some sort of crisis. I wasn’t. I have spent the last three years being there for my family, my community and, in […]

The more things change the more they stay the same, OR Help! I am becoming my Mother!!

Lots has changed since I was a little girl: eating in a restaurant only happened on the most special of occasions, my peers and I all went home from school for lunch, ‘the web’ referred to the creation the giant spider made on the rusty wrought iron railings of the front steps, and as far […]

A Circus Act at its best – The joys of work life balance!

Work life balance has such a lovely ring. As a full-time Mom, with a slice of small business on the side, it certainly is what I strive for, but let’s face it, if you’re striving you can bet it doesn’t necessarily come easy. Things were different when I was paid by the hour. The position […]
