I frequently interview candidates for open positions in my organization and am often asked what advice I have for women returning to the workforce. The most important piece of advice I can give you is to not apologize for leaving your career to raise your children. Be confident in presenting your skills and be assertive about what you have to offer a prospective employer. Finding a…Continue

So it is day 1 of my very first craft show and my booth is all set up....only 15 minutes past start time. A few people start walking by and looking at my items. It takes awhile before my mom and I realize these are all fellow vendors. Hmmm....will people who came here to MAKE money SPEND money too? Well, if they're anything like us, it's a definite YES. My mom is already scoping it out, Continue…Continue

Before I go any further I need to admit something - I used to make fun of people who blog. I apologize if this explanation offends any of my fellow bloggers ;).
I just didn't get the point of blogging. My thought was, why do people think anyone cares about what they have to say? Talk about being full of it! I mean, it's one thing if you're sharing new data, known facts, you know, useful information.....it's another if you're just spouting out randomness.
I was really…

I make no claims about being a fabulous mommy. I am new to the job, and I am loving it, but it is damn hard to fill the mommy shoes! Working from home, although much more flexible than an office job, has proven to be quite the challenge. Sure, I am getting the hang of it, and loving the fact that I can spend most of my day with my husband and son. The challenge I refer to is in terms of maintaining some "flair" in the day-to-day; after all, we work-at-home moms are superwomen, right? So we…Continue

name) the sheep, because she was a clone. People were up in arms thinking that the human counter part to cloning sheep could not be too far away.
I can't help thinking, why is this a BAD idea?

It’s so easy to turn inward when we think about motherhood and what it means and how we do it every day. But even celebrities are not immune to trying to do it all – of course, their circumstances and list of daily to-do’s are different, but in essence, maybe not so much, as evidenced by…Continue

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.) She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."
But, then, I thought, what the heck, self? SAHM is a career.
She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.
We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.
Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…Continue

However, it's difficult knowing when to stop working when you're just starting
out. In an office environment, your time was planned. You had a time you
resumed at work, your lunch hour, etc.…

After being out of work, and living on one income plus a small amount of unemployment, we decided that I needed to go back to work. Violet was older, she was more adjusted and a little less clingy. We decided to
give it a try - again.

When I was younger, I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. I had thought that I would finish school, work for a while, get married and then have kids. I guess I never really gave much thought to
what would happen after I had my children, but I also don’t think that it
would’ve mattered because from what I have learned, nothing is like it seems on
Leading up to having my daughter,…Continue

I'm not sure if the lines have blurred because my work has taken over my life or because I haven't slept!
My work requires me to travel a lot. I live on the east coast, but have clients on the west coast, so I work late a lot. I have a very unusual job in that I work with celebrities and people in the film and publishing field.
I love to travel. I love creating videos. I love reading and writing. So, my work and my hobbies are nearly one and the…Continue
