I’m a one-at-a-time divulger, usually. But I walked into my doctor’s office and I had a list of three things I wanted to talk about. My arthritic finger that my husband has diagnosed as Lyme’s. My thyroid medicine that was switched last month but isn’t “right”. My undiagnosed ADHD that is morphing into early Alzheimer’s. (See Friday’s pie chart.)
I wrote all three things down on a clipboard that I brought from home, with the carefully worded back story on each. I labeled and… Continue

I don't know about you, but I have come to believe there is no such thing as "extra" cash. Somehow, just when it looks like I'll actually have something left at the end of the month, a pipe will break, the roof will leak, the basement will flood, or I'll need a root canal. Extra cash? I think not.
I do, however, believe in additional cash. This is money that can be available without having to take on a second job. If you, like me,… Continue

Here where I live in Montreal Canada it is cold now in Septemeber. My daughter loves to wear dresses. So I decided to look for those fashionable long blouses that look a little bit like… Continue

The pregnancy test reads positive and we all, or at least most, jump for joy with excitement and anticipation of the journey we are about to embark upon until we are reminded of… Maternity Leave.
The appropriate time to share your pregnancy with your employer varies depending on your situation and your personal preference. I had been working at a small office for about for years and considered my coworkers to be friends so I shared the news right away. However, when the time came to… Continue

This is not a fairytale. This is how I finally figured out how to get my extra baby weight off, get toned up, get organized, and clean my house, in the most “fantabulously” insane way.
My friends have been dying for me to share my plan… so here it is…and for those of you who don’t know me YET… here is a little about me.
I am a stay-at-home/go-to-work mommy to Sophie (6) and Jack (2). Just like you, I carpool. I homework. I run a hundred errands a day. I cook. I clean. And,… Continue

I am so proud to work from home for a company that provides us with a benefit that is endorsed by the FBI and that is designed to protect our children. Did you know a child is reported missing every 40 seconds in the United States? Did you know that only 10% of families have samples of their kid's fingerprints & DNA?
Our company has a new program available to its Independent Business Owners that will help… Continue

I should have my own parking space at JFK and LaGuardia. Many industries are like mine, you need to get on a plane to see a customer, work a trade show, evaluate a factory, research a new opportunity, train a sales force or just be present at an industry networking event. There is little you can do about the distance from your family but there is something you can do about making your trip comfortable and productive! I will break it down from booking the trip to arriving home…..
First and… Continue

So many decisions have led me here, where i am. Director of Marketing at a Major medical manufacturer, new mom, wife and new home owner. I majored in Political Science, started in sales and am now in marketing. How does that happen? Like it happens to alot of young people who major in something ridiculous like political science! You get out of college, no idea what to do with the obscure degree you obtained (could be that you majored in a language or just general business!) and you get a first… Continue

Many like to call it work, life balance…I think it is more like juggling! It is not just the job and family pins that are up in the air…there are MANY more. In my world I have the baby, the husband, the house, the career, industry boards I am on, my friends, social networking, blogs and me time. If you sit back and look at it is will make you dizzy. I have decided that the only way I can functionally get through a day and be a rock star at all of these is to juggle them and be completely… Continue

Sometimes I think the most difficult part of having a baby is not the sleepless nights, not the crying, not the birth….it is being away from her. I won’t lie, sometimes it is a needed break when I go to work or I travel and get to sleep past 5 am but not being with her outweighs any brief moment of pleasure I have. I do feel that I am a better mommy to her because I work though. That may not be the case for everyone but for a driven chick like me, someone who thrives on competition and her… Continue
