If you didn’t already know this, I write for a living. Well, back that up. I consult for a living. And a big part of that is freelance blogging.
But this isn’t want I’ve always done. I have a strong background in marketing and finance, writing, public speaking and just generally running businesses.
Deciding to do what I do for a living wasn’t an easy jump. It took years of back and forth, being afraid of fully making that leap, dipping my toe in the water, walking…Continue
Do me a quick favor: Scroll through your phone and find a picture of an everyday moment. Something unscripted. One where nobody is looking at the camera. It's hard to find, isn't it?
But those are the moments that matter. A Harvard Study posits that it's these…

Your child spends the equivalent of a full working day at school everyday, surrounded by their peers in a highly controlled environment. With overcrowding in schools becoming a serious problem, and test scores slipping, it’s time for a revolution in education. Of course, we’re not talking about turning the system on it’s head, but little things to make the essential kid’s learning material easier for your child to understand. Below are some…Continue

I'm going to be honest. When I opened the package and took a good look at the Bee Sili Silicone Grill and Oven Gloves, I DID NOT think they would actually protect my hands when handling hot food. They're a pretty pair of gloves and includes a really nice...FREE basting brush, but I mean really?…Continue

The moment you start feeding your baby you begin setting up eating habits that will hopefully last them a lifetime. While habits are developed over time, starting your child on healthier foods right from the start is a great opportunity to help children understand the benefits of eating that is good for them.
It is surprising how quickly babies learn the…Continue

It’s that time of year again. Stores are advertising incredible sales on school supplies, the temperatures outside are starting to cool down, and school bus stops are affecting your morning commute. As the summer winds down, school once again becomes the priority for scheduling your children’s time throughout the week. Soccer practice, karate and playing on the XBOX has to be carefully fit into the same hectic evenings where homework and after-school programs compete for you and…Continue

Last week, I learned of a boy who tried to take his life. He was found in time to be rushed to the hospital and at this point, it is unclear if he will survive. This has caused a ripple of emotions – fear, sadness, grief, disbelief. How could this happen? Why did it happen? While I do not know the family…Continue
And that got me to thinking about how we’re teaching our own little guy real values and beliefs to fall back on. While it’s not a conversation we have all the time, Rick and I had some pretty serious talks about the values we wanted to emulate for our own children back when we first got pregnant with Ricky. They still come up from time to time – but I think the fact that we try to live through our values is more substantial than just talking about them.
So last night it kind of struck…Continue

Every year, dogs bite approximately 4.5 million Americans. In an effort to hold dog owners responsible, federal, state, and local legislative bodies regulate dog ownership issues, such as civil liability, leashing, and licensing.
Breed-specific legislation is one of the most controversial legislative regulatory attempts.

In November of 2011, a Georgia Appellate Court upheld the decision of a lower court on a case in which a man was nearly held liable for a crash that involved his car but while he was not in it. A thief sped off in his vehicle from his driveway, but not before the man noticed and started out after him in another car. His wife called the police while he chased his stolen car down the road. He…Continue

There are several people in my office who stand while they work. I admire them. Because although I know I need to stand up more in my day, I'm not yet at the point where I am ready to raise my desk. (I'd have to stop wearing heels to the office, for one thing.)…

Gillian Flynn is living my dream. Not only is she an A-list New York Times best-selling author, but she's also headed for the Oscars with the film adaptation of "Gone Girl." Red carpet, designer gown, borrowed Harry Winston jewels...yes, she is a freaking rock star in my opinion.…Continue
