A Working Mom's Business Banter

I have learned that in business, and in life, that "All is fair in love and war." What does this mean exactly? Well, if you must know, it traces back to John Lyly's "Euphues" (1598). The quote was "The rules of fair play do not apply in love and war." John was a Renaissance English poet and playwright and certainly a man ahead of his time in recognizing that there are many a people who do not play fair. I imagine that some of you who are reading this now may be cursing those who have wronged… Continue

She's Only Four, What Does She Know?

My ex-husband, God bless him, was a douche bag. He put his career first, his mistress second, fantasy football third and coming in a distant fourth was his family.



That said, I must confess that there are days that I come home and miss the selfish bastard. Three and a half years after our "Black October" my brain knows that it is not him I miss anymore. Though my heart misses having someone to come home and share the victories of the day with I’ve become accustom to the adult… Continue

Does Your Company Help Protect Your Children?

MINE DOES!!!!!!! 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

Life Lesson 10 - The Cheerio Moments

My day goes something like this:

Wake up, not to an alarm but to an 18 month old who is up anytime between 5:30am and 6:30am. (when its my turn, great tip, my husband and i take turns so there is no cranky argument in the morning) but regardless of turns, i am up by at least 7am.

Then the baby gets milk and breakfast, i get ready for work and then leave to a now crying baby who can say no mommy bye bye! kills me every time......

But there is this moment in the morning between the… Continue

Mommy Guilt, the working mom’s nemesis! – Life Lesson 4 (from my blog drivenchick.blogspot.com)

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

"Spin With It" or "The Stupid Wasp"

I’ve been feeling anxious lately. Unsettled. Discombobulated, even. And if you’ve ever been combobulated, you know how unsettling the opposite of THAT can be. I’m only saying.



Perhaps it is the heat. Here I am hard at work inside, while the sun is shining away outside, all, “Come out and PLAY, cave dweller!” And I’m like, “Don’t interrupt! RUDE.”



Perhaps it is the sounds of imminent summer pressing against my bedroom window. The first wave of summer bugs and their… Continue

No Excuses!

No Excuses!

Joel and I have always been an active couple. We met on the college track team. Both pole vaulters (he was amazing, by the way). Have always loved the same things. Avid runners, wakeboarders, snowboarders, surfers, anything active and outdoors really. When we decided to have a baby we had a lot of negative forecasting. Many people were telling us our lifestyle would change. That frustrated us. Always thought it doesn't have to be like that! I hated the classic... "you will see… Continue

Working moms

Does the term "working mom" sound at all redundant? At all redundant? Exactly. Do we say someone has a sick illness, or a hungry hunger? No, because that would sound silly. So, why do we say someone is a working mom? Doesn't the definition of "mom" imply that work is involved? A lot of work? More work than pretty much any other job out there? A job from which you can't retire, or take a vacation, or even a sick day? Now, I know that the term really refers to a mother who works outside of the… Continue

I USED TO BE...ASPEN VERSION

I moved to Aspen and got a job working at Photographer’s Aspen, a small photographer’s cooperative for leading editorial assignment shooters. I helped to market their images for stock. Snuggled in the midst of an Aspen Grove, our old ranch style building also housed the Tenth Mountain Hut Division offices. I had radically changed my life from living in the chaos of New York City to living in one of the healthiest towns in America. I rode my bike to work and religiously hiked up the Ute Trail,… Continue

Emotions of a Traveling Mom on Day 5

I'm sitting in a hotel room in Vegas and will soon be headed to the airport for my return flight. This morning is day 5 away from home. Five days! I was OK until day 3, but at this point I've lost whatever work-related focus I had. My sole focus is getting home and seeing my husband and kids.



At this point I'm cursing the impulse that had me suggest this conference to my boss. I've narrowed down my feelings to three emotions ... anxiety, frustration and guilt.



1)… Continue

I don't know

I am so confused today.. I dont have the inniative to do anything.

We were supposed to bring the granddaughter to Universal Studios but that may be on hold. I want to make sure bills are all paid first. Hoping we can survive on one major income for a while.

Why did this have to happen?
