We absolutely have to be responsible for managing our own health, period. It’s obvious how no one will push us to slow down, not take on another task or say no. 

Instead, the demands around us will keep impeding on us, chipping away at an energy we may have reserved for ourselves.

We know you hear so much about self-care, probably too much. Our fear is that women will become numb to this reminder and begin to tune it out altogether. ...

There are so many reasons why we answer this way, everything from your mindset and automated response to positioning your status in the group. Maybe there is an undertow of needing significance or maybe you’re just the type of person who takes on a lot and just likes to share all that’s going on.  Whatever drives your need to wear b...

We are born a blank slate, a clean notebook with tremendous opportunity to write our story. Yet, our story isn’t really written by us. We transform based on the experiences that happen to us and around us and we carry those truths into adulthood and hold onto them as if they are our own.

In this episode, we are exploring how being a Gen Xer and how we grew up plays a tremendous role in who we are today. We want to uncover the though...

This is leading more and more women to consider how they take their financial and career future into their own hands, turning towards starting entrepreneurial ventures. Stepping off your steady, salaried career isn’t as easy or as quick as turning off the ‘spicket’ but it is, 100% doable if you create a plan, structure and become disciplined. You too can s...

You never saw yourself as a complainer, heck, you still don’t. Yet, what used to be a rare occurrence based on a situation, complaining about the traffic you hit during rush hour or complaining about your co-worker after they dropped the ball on a project and left you having to work until all hours to clean it up, has now become an everyday habit.

Things that should be rolling off your back are substantial and are getting a part in ...

There’s so much to think about for our own personal branding.

There’s also the other side of soci...

You were part of a recent RIF at work, and you immediately start blaming your boss for not protecting you, your toxic work environment, and the crappy job market. 

Maybe you’re backing out of the parking spot at the supermarket while your son is incessantly talking at you and you don’t see the car coming down the aisle and you have to hit your brake...hard. You turn and get annoyed at your son for distracting you.
