The Social Media Time Vacuum

I am totally guilty of getting sucked into Twitter.  And Facebook.  And now Pinterest.  It doesn't help that as a small business owner with a limited advertising budget, social media is a great way to meet new clients and advertise.  I may say I go on for my business, but I know I stay for the pleasure of social…

Leadership Lessons of Potty Training

Boss Mom, Potty Training, Portia Mount

We started potty training D2 over the holidays. I agonized about what method to use. Three-day bootcamp method? Gradual method? No method?  Ultimately, our pediatrician gave us the best advice, wait until he is ready and you’ll know. You can’t force a child to potty train before he is ready. He’s now at the point where he can wear undies during the day and diapers at…

GUIDE TO GETTING OUT THE DOOR

We are lucky enough to have arranged our work schedules so our little guy is at home with one of us while the other parent works.  At least most of the time.  This week is the first time we had to take to him to a sitter outside of the home.  I gotta tell you, I have mad props for the moms that do this every morning. 

I sorely underestimated the amount of planning and effort it would take to arrive at both the sitter and my appointment on time.  I went to bed thinking "all I need to…

How to Return to the Workforce After an Extended Absence

I frequently interview candidates for open positions in my organization and am often asked what advice I have for women returning to the workforce. The most important piece of advice I can give you is to not apologize for leaving your career to raise your children. Be confident in presenting your skills and be assertive about what you have to offer a prospective employer. Finding a…

Embrace the "F" Word

Learning to Deal with Failure

When was the last time you failed? I don't mean a little mistake. When was the last time you experienced a bona-fide, gut-wrenching, FUBAR failure? I used to be afraid to fail. I think I spent much of my twenties and my early thirties trying hard not to fail. Back then, I had serious perfectionist tendencies and worked hard not to make a mistake.  I look back at how naive I was then.…

A Global Mindset Starts at Home



Preparing for the Global Work Place

"What color are you?" Huh? "What. Color. Are. You.?" Me? I'm shopping at Pier 1 Imports in the home fragrance aisle and see a young, blonde girl about six years old looking up at me. "What color are you? Are you brown?" I'm wondering how to answer this question. Should I pretend I didn't hear her? Do I answer? She's so cute and it's an innocent question. I go for it. "Well,…

Dump Your Watch and Get More Out of Your Day

I'm thisclose to declaring email bankruptcy. I recently returned from a week long business trip to Asia and, no kidding, I had 700 emails in my in-box--and that's with an out-of-office notification turned on. To cap it off, I had a pile of mail, dozens of meeting requests to sort through and a laundry list of items I needed to do at home.  If you feel whipsawed by a never ending stream of voice…

I'll Do it Tomorrow



Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week ~ Spanish Proverb



As I young child I had the Sweet Pickles books series by Jacqueline Reinach. My favorite book in this series was Goose Goofs Off. This was a delightful tale of a Goose and how she was determined to take a day off. Throughout the book, Goose was confronted with different things that required her attention. However, her motto was I'll do it tomorrow.… Continue

Vacation Madness

So the kids are out of school and it's time to hit the road. The summer marks the official start of the vacation season and it's time for fun. One of my favorite vacation destinations is Disney World. I absolutely love everything about the House of Mouse.

My daughter and I visit this magical world about every two years. Now when it's time to get ready for Disney, I plan extensively. I do an extremely amount of research on what are the best days… Continue
