Case-in-point, Sara Blakely- she founded Spanx, which…Continue

It is no surprise that women face a huge amount of stressors once they enter the workforce, but it increases even more once they take on the challenge of having a family. Balancing work and family life isn’t so simple.
It becomes an even bigger problem for women who are not working high-income positions and taking on these extra roles.
In past research, women who have worked managerial positions have stated that they felt “isolated at work, exhibited Type A behavior and…Continue

Hot flashes. Night sweats. Sleeplessness. Mood swings. Anxiety. Memory loss. Low Libido. It’s enough to make a woman crazy!
Historically, menopausal women were considered that and worse. In the Middle Ages they were burned at the stake as witches; in the 1700′s they were institutionalized as lunatics. Even today, many women view the phase so…Continue
