Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

I Struggle Between What Pays the Bills & What Makes me Happy

My Summer Slipped Away

The gig is up. The last day of Summer has slipped right through my fingers, not because I didn't hold on to it tightly enough, but because all good things must come to an end. I can't truly say that I relaxed enough during my Summer break, nor that I grinded hard enough. What I did was somewhere in the…

3 Tips for Caring For Your Children While Caring For Your Career

Being a parent who cares for their career as much as their family is one of the most difficult tasks you can imagine. It’s often a game of balancing working hours and being home in time for dinner so that children don’t feel neglected or lonely.

At the same time, your boss is handing you more and more responsibility regardless of your private obligations. While it’s never as easy as it seems, there are ways to alleviate your stress and give your children more attention even though you…

Finding love on the job

My son often tells me that when he grows up he wants to come and work at my job. He has plans to sit in the cube next to mine and be on my team. He also wants to help distribute candy when the team needs a little pick-me-up on rough days and have lunch with me every day.…

Leaving the PTA off your resume

In my job, I get to interview a fair number of applicants. I like that part of my role - meeting new people, hearing about their career journeys and goals, and asking why they want to join my team. I have HR-approved questions to ensure that I never ask an "illegal" question, but I am always surprised at how many people just offer up additional details around their life - especially when it comes to parenthood.…

Advice from your parents

When I left the family nest to get settled into my first job, my Mom gave me some advice. She told me some things about my paycheck and finances, she gave me a few words of wisdom when dealing with my coworkers and when I got frustrated with that job, she told me to stick with it until I found something new.…

Mom brings home the bacon. (And the milk.)

My son was six weeks old when I returned to work. And I had the same thought every day when I dropped him off at day care:

This is crazy. Why am I working? I should be staying home with him. I mean, my salary covers our healthcare and the cost of his school and some other bills, but I think we could live without it.…

Take the Break That Might Save Your Life

Stress is real.



In 2011, I was diagnosed with central serous retinopathy and the doctors made it very clear to me that it was directly related to how my body processes stress.  



I remember it like it was yesterday.  I sat at my desk…

The Mommy Wars: Stay at home or Go to work

When my brother and I were little, my Mom was a stay at home mom (thanks, Mom!). When we got older, she got a job to provide for us (thanks, Mom!). And even though she wasn't home after school or couldn't be around to make dinner every night, we turned out fine. We knew we were loved.…

Maternity Leave Benefits the Whole Organization

We fight for a fair maternity leave, and a supportive work environment tooth and nail. We do so because we deserve to have a balance between family life and work. If the organizations themselves were aware of the benefits of maternity leave to the organization itself, I think the battle would get much easier. Not only does maternity leave benefit the organization, it also "greatly" benefits the economy. …

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.

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…
