I remember clearly being asked when my eldest started pre-school, "what are you going to do with all your free time?" At that point I still had a toddler under foot so really, what free time? Same question arose when the eldest went to kindergarten. The 2 yo went to pre-school from 9-12 and the newly minted Kindergartener from 11:15 to 3. The drive to one school from the other, twenty-two minutes in the Batmobile. Finally the youngest started kindergarten, he too went at 11:15 which meant… Continue

When we last left our friend, Nancy, she was living the dream… drinking acidic beverages & eating acidic foods; like they weren’t going to make them again. She’s paying for all of this debauchery, friends; Nancy just had her yearly physical, and the numbers didn’t look promising! Her blood pressure rising… check. High cholesterol… check. Endocrine values askew… check. Nancy talking to her doctor about her low-energy, achy-joint, bad moods, migraine-suffering state of life… check, check,… Continue

"Mommy guilt", I don't want my baby in day care, I don't want anyone else to raise my baby, and finally going back to work just isn't worth it. Each year more and more new Mothers are leaving the Corporate Life in search of the ever elusive, "Work Life Balance." Mompreneurs, with our new companies and our new inventions are driven and motivated to change the business World and create the ideal family work structure. I'm not going to use the word balance, because truly are you never really… Continue

Welcome to part 2 of a very important discussion about magnesium. The last entry talked about the abundance and importance of magnesium in our bodies. The primary focus in the last blog was the benefits magnesium holds for women. Ladies, if you missed the last blog, please read part 1 “Magnesium...Miracle Mineral!” Don’t miss out on a mineral that could change your life. That being said, let’s continue skipping down the path of magnesium enlightenment.

Have you ever heard the question, “what’s the matter with you, do you have rocks in your head?” I must admit that as a kid, I heard that more than once. I was a little “day dreamy”, and often lacked complete focus on what I was doing at the time. Happily, most of that focus problem has subsided (please don’t ask my wife!). The good thing is, however, I still have rocks in my head…and so do you. Without them, our brains couldn’t form a thought. They’re called minerals and without them, we… Continue

eople take information in via different modes, so although the bulk of my posts are in written form, here is a video mini-coaching session on life balance. This was the result of a client (a wife and mom and business owner) who was worrying out loud about the amount of hours she has been spending at the office.
Enjoy, and I'd love to hear your feedback. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvMYCPZK4pk

Balancing work and home life is what we all strive for: we multi-task, we organize, we cut to the chase, we learn the tricks. But you know what? Having that perfect balance is an urban myth.
Let’s think about this for a minute. Balancing by its nature is risky business. Tightrope walkers balance, gymnasts balance, window washers balance. This isn’t for everyone. Sure most… Continue

I have a number of working mothers in my marketing department and several have arranged flexible work schedules to accommodate their changing work/life demands. Flexible work schedules are becoming much more common as employers recognize it as valuable tool for retaining their top talent and promoting work/life balance. In my department we have a number of different kinds of…

Children are walking petrie dishes. But you knew that already, right?

The mind of Temple Grandin is fascinating because it works very differently from most of ours. She is a visual thinker, thinking in pictures. Recently there was an HBO movie about her life, starring Claire Danes, that won many awards. The movie beautifully illustrates how her mind works.
Why does this matter? What can we learn from Temple… Continue

One week ago, I challenged you, along with myself, to see if we could collectively stop the habit of using Reality TV Parenting as a way of spending time with our kids. Borne of my own guilt of using the latest episode of Survivor or anything on The Food…

When I started this blog recently, my first post was about the quest that many women go on in order to "have it all."
What exactly does that mean?
Well, for the most part, it means that http://bit.ly/gsU2EN

If you’ve followed me for any length of time, you know I’ve been struggling to find balance in my life. Last October, I made a solo trip to an Arizona spa for four days in order to reclaim myself. I spent the majority of my trip learning how to meditate and how the practice could enhance my life. Like any A-type personality, I took notes and attempted to schedule my day around meditation. If you have seen Julia Roberts in Eat Pray… Continue
