Releasing the Illusion of Control

July 19, 2018

Let's face it; life can tire a person out! When you add up the jobs, romance (or lack of romance), friendship, parenting, being someone’s adult child yourself, self-care, sleeping, eating, exercising, being “tired out” can just grow and grow.

Generational Differences in the Workplace

July 17, 2018

Differences of all types are a touchy and fiercely relevant topic right now. Amidst the hubbub and debates, the discussions of sexism, racism and ageism—people still have to work. And it’s in the workplace that most people encounter people different than themselves.

Age in the workplace is one decisive topic. Whether you have a traditional 9-to-5 job or own your own tech firm, you will almost inevitably end up working for, managing, collaborating or communicating with someone of a vastly different age than yourself.

Self-Sabotage: It Happens to the Best of Us

July 11, 2018

All of us, at some point or another, allow ourselves to get in our own ways and self-sabotage ourselves.

July 05, 2018

This is going to be quick and sweet. When we parent, in the toughest moments of discomfort, challenge, and testing, we need to remember that we are parenting not only the 3-year-old child in front of us but also the 13-year-old teen in front of us, the 23-year-old young adult in front of us, and the 33-year-old adult in front of us … you get the point.

A Fixed Mindset Versus a Growth Mindset

July 03, 2018

It’s a story that many of us have heard multiple times: the two fighting wolves.

“A fight is going on inside me,” a man said to a boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.

Is It Possible to Plan a Microwedding and Keep Everyone Happy?

June 19, 2018

We just wanted all of our loved ones, a place to dance, and an open bar.

The Business Technique That Can Boost a Mompreneur’s Success and Sales

June 12, 2018

“You’re a tour guide on the process, not trying to pull a cat on a leash.” I laughed out loud when sales coach and author Kim Orlesky said that to me.

Orlesky was talking about closing a sale in the business world, but she just as easily could have been talking about being a mom. Being a mother and an entrepreneur are not dissimilar, it turns out.
