Hanging out with the other butterflies

Recently, my coworkers and I watched a TED Talk by Susan Cain around the power of introverts. After the talk, we all took a quiz to determine where we fell on the introvert - extrovert spectrum. It was fun to see who was a full-blown introvert and who was more of an extrovert.…

It’s a platform to invest and mentor women entrepreneurs and consists of men and women who have achieved great heights, who are willing to give their time and money to support Indian women entrepreneurs to scale their businesses.

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.…

Opting Out? Working Moms Want the Same Thing: Flexibility

Originally posted on Workflexibility.org. Written by Stefanie Boucher.

Several months ago when I started Opt-Out Revolutionary, a blog about the much-discussed (and often misunderstood) opt-out revolution, I set out to interview stay-at-home-mothers and working moms alike with one key question in mind: How can today’s women build satisfying, joy-filled careers and raise healthy, happy kids without constantly feeling…

My Mother never slept

When I was a teenager, I was convinced that my Mother didn't sleep. She was a single Mom with a restaurant job that required long hours. And on the nights that she worked a close shift followed by an open shift, I am pretty sure that she only got about four hours of sleep (at best).…

First comes love, then comes moving in, then maybe marriage

Like many couples, my husband and I moved in together before getting married. And we actually lived together for more than a decade before saying our vows. We wanted to be sure about our choice to remain together. (Absolutely sure.) And to this day, I am glad that we put in all that time before we tied the knot. We know each other on every level and I believe that it made the "hard" years of marriage (the first year after saying "I do,"…

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.…

Working parents are suffering in silence

At 5 pm, I have been working for eight and a half hours. I probably don't even know what time it is. In fact, I am probably in a meeting, since I work for a bicoastal company and it is only 2 pm on the other coast. (That tends to be a popular meeting time.)



By 5:14, I am trying very hard to focus on whatever…

Could you work with your spouse?

I am spoiled. For several years I worked with my husband at the same company, and now we work only a few blocks apart. This means that I am used to being able to have lunch with my wonderful husband on a frequent basis and that neither of us has to go out of our way to spend time together in the middle of the day.…

Doing nothing on a day off

I have a day off soon. I am not going on any trips or spending time with friends or traveling somewhere fun. I am not doing anything but sitting still, ignoring all chores, and enjoying the idea that no one needs me. And I am crazy excited about it.…

Nice is not a four-letter word

In a former job, I used to have a mean boss. The kind of boss who would tear you down in public, make you feel worthless and mock you if you went to your car during lunch to have a little cry. My coworkers and I became adept at figuring out her triggers and avoiding them wherever possible. Some days we spent more time at work analyzing how she would react to something than doing our jobs. That was the least productive I've ever…

অন্যকে দিয়ে যখন কাজ করাবেন (When you make others to work)

[English version has given below]
আপনি যখন কাউকে দিয়ে কোনো কাজ করাবেন, তখন এটা ভাবার কোনো কারন নেই, আপনার নির্দেশ অনুসরন করে, ঠিক আপনার মতো করেই কাজ করবে। আসলে প্রতিটি মানুষই আলাদা।  তাই তার কাজ এবং ফলাফলও আলাদা। সে আপনার চেয়ে ভাল করে (সম্ভাবনা কম) অথবা খারাপ করে করবে, এটা মেনে নিয়েই আরেকজনকে দিয়ে কাজ করাতে হবে। অযথা চেচামেচি না করে, বুঝিয়ে যতটা ঠিক করে নিতে পারেন, ততই আপনার লাভ।
When someone else will work for you, you can’t expect they will follow your instruction…

Four Reasons to Get Business Insurance for a Home Based Business

Being a stay-at-home mom can be more time-consuming than the job you held before the children arrived.

সময়ের মধ্যে কাজ শেষ করার ফল (Result of finishing work in time)



[English version has given below]



কোন কাজ নির্দিস্ট সময়ে শেষ করার মতোন শান্তির কিছু আর নেই। মনের উপর কোন বোঝা থাকেনা। পরের কাজ নিয়ে শান্তি মতোন চিন্তা করা যায়। বা অবসর সময় কাটানো যায় নিজের মতোন।



তবে একটা সমস্যা আছে। আপনি যখন কাজ ঠিক মতোন শেষ করে রেস্ট নিবেন, তখন আপনাকে বলা হবে, কি ব্যাপার…
