Are Kids a Death Sentence to Your Career or How to Succeed at Home and at Work?

It is widely believed (and statistically proved) that women with children are much less likely to make careers and have higher chances to end up in a low-end job. While facts and numbers cannot be denied, one should still remember that there are exceptions to any rule, and if you are contemplating having a kid in the near future, it’s not a MUST to bail on your work.

It is wonderful to stop and take time to see what you have learned about yourself during a job search. Each day there are thousands of people all over the country conducting a job search. These searches take place online, in person and via traditional classified advertisements. Most people look at the job search process as a way of asking for things and hoping for results. While that is one way of…

It is thrilling to know that it is possible to accept compliments with dignity and grace. Recently, over the course of two days I gave four different entrepreneurs compliments about how they were operating their businesses and great ideas they had for business ventures. Each of these women failed to…

Trying to stay off the "mommy track" at work

As mentioned in the past, I work for a great company with a great group of people. There are a lot of women on my team, and there are a lot of mothers. We understand what it means to be a working parent: We watch one another's backs and fill in when family emergencies arise.…

MAKING BEING ‘MOTHER’ A PROFESSION

Everyday, I meet women who once were professionals – they were doctors, software engineers, HR consultants, journalists and so much more. People knew them for their diligence, work ethics and never say no attitude. They had an identity and a career and it was all going upwards.

Then they became MOTHERS and it all changed forever.

They became poop cleaners, food feeders and just obsessed with ‘cleaning up.’ They started getting judged not by their work but by how much weight is…

Paycheck? For Now, Hugs Will do.

Moms, we know the value of our role within our families.  Although some days I find myself drifting to sleep feeling guilty about my growing disdain for housework, about losing my patience with the kids, about not being very proficient in the kitchen. Children, especially little ones don’t really have any idea about what moms do all day. And, for the most part they probably don’t really care.  Which is okay.  They are little.  Moms are sort of like magic elves that work out of…

Mash-Up: Fictional Career Women on TV

Some of my favorite television shows are those set in the workplace.  I love getting a sneak peek into worlds I haven’t experienced. And, since I haven’t worked regularly in an office for many years, I’m fascinated by the dynamics between the characters.  Now, I know this is fiction. A lawyer or editor on a TV show is going to be exaggerated, dramatized, too snarky or silly or just plain scary (like Glenn Close’s character on Damage). We are looking for entertainment…

Putting Myself Out There

I cannot be the only one...who sometimes gets lost in her daily routines, so lost that when the frenzy finally calms down for the day, and she thinks about the world outside of her harmonious home life, she isn't really sure where she fits in anymore. I dream big about the ways I am going to put myself out there for the world, let my talents shine, but then something happens. I pull back at the last minute telling myself I am still trying to put my thoughts in order and I should wait to…

Choices Moms Make

When I was a little girl, the majority of my friends did not come home to an empty house like I did.  They knew that their moms were waiting for them with a hug, a smile and some cookies and milk.  Their moms were there to make sure they changed out of their “school clothes” so that they could go outside and play.  And once their dads came home from work, they knew it was time to “wash up for supper” and join the family at the dining room table.  I’ll admit it; as a little girl, I…

Becoming Full Time Housewife/Mother: The Transition

A couple months ago, I have finally started living the role that I thought would not be playing so soon – a full time staying-at-home-wife (and soon-to-be Mom, for the time being). I knew that this phase will eventually happen to me but I thought it would come much later.

Another life transition for me.  
A little story about my dream
 
When I was younger, I have never envisaged the likelihood of assuming housewife title in my adult…

Dressing for Doctor

Recently, I finally surrendered to pains which have been nagging me for way to long. Much like the plumber with the leaky faucet, we, Doc families seem to be walking case studies of a plethora of ailments, aches, and pains - especially the adults. If something's hurting, I just wait until Doc H comes home, mention it in passing and wait for a response. Usually, I get no response other than a nod (translation: I have no idea. You’ll probably feel better in a day…

Dear 23-Year-Old Me: In All Things, Give Thanks

Congratulations, you’re married.

You’re about to enjoy a honeymoon but it won’t be long before the warm, fuzzy fairy-dust of lovey-dovey grossness will settle and you’ll clearly see the relationship you’ve entered.

You’ll bicker over someone’s driving, limited closet space, and hangers.
