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. Taking care of children, the house and the yard is an endless job and you don't get a paycheck for it at the end of the week. For this reason, many mothers start flexible businesses at home and become work-at-home mothers. From babysitting to designing websites, creative moms are finding way to earn some extra cash. Discover four reasons to get…

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…

Connection Advice for Parents Who Travel

This week is a busy week for me. My kids finish school tomorrow. The next day – Wednesday – is the first official day of summer break for them and then I leave for a work conference on Thursday. My younger two kids do not particularly love when I travel for work, so last year around this time when I left for…

So, You "Respect" My Work? But...

6 Habits to Work $marter, Not Harder

Time never seems to be on our side. In the few moments that you are able to sneak away to write while the kids are asleep or at school, the piles of laundry continue to grow, the dishes aren’t washing themselves and no celebrity chef is showing up with a week’s worth of groceries and pre-planned…

Unplugging on your vacation

A woman in my office took off one Friday, and at about 9:30 am, I received an email from her. She wasn't showing as online, but she was definitely answering emails. I wrote her back, told her she was busted and reminded her that she was supposed to be off.

I get it: Sometimes it is hard to unplug from the…

Want to Get Paid to Blog & Tweet !

This is sooo very cool.  I've been doing it since January for Purina, Dollar General, Oil of Olay, NutriSystem, Samsung, Crest and Braun.  Why not get paid for something you like to do, right?  The joy is you get to do it from the comfort of your own home too.  

I've been working with IZEA since the beginning of January advertising and have been paid already for the brand names I mentioned above to post and tweet.  All I have to do is bid on their job and I just paid $5.00 up front to…

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. …

The Empty Crib Syndrome

I have really been in a funk lately. My mind has been a whirlwind of emotions & thoughts. Ever since my youngest, my baby, turned 4years old I have been giving myself a hard time. I feel this pressure, entirely from myself, but pressure no less, to work.  Not that I don’t work now, in fact I feel like this is the hardest I have ever worked in my life!  My husband and I are a bit old school. He works outside the home.  I do all the household chores, all things clothes and food…

Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho! It's Back To Work I Go!

I have never been a model employee. From the age of 14 until I was 25, I've held around 12 jobs (I may be forgetting a couple). In each and every one of these positions, I would show up to work and do my job with one foot out the door. When I worked at Wal-Mart, I was forever filling up receipt tape with random notes to myself. Story ideas, song lyrics, scraps of poetry, random observations. I'd watch the customers for inspiration for character's that I would one day write about. I'd…

Super Hero - You Can Do the Work Life Balance

you are a super hero

It is fantastic to realize that when it comes to work life balance you can succeed by being your own super hero. When my oldest daughter was a little girl she watched a movie from the Cheetah Girls with words to a song something similar to this:

I don't want to be like Cinderella
