As a baby boomer, I am aware of this fact and make daily choices to navigate around it. However, I don’t believe my 21 year-old daughter knows this concept-----yet. Maybe she never will! What a concept!



What does it mean to be a "working woman in a man's world?”

Working Women: Dress for Success? Always!

Whether you quickly stop off at the market to get some onions to "dress up" your dinner, or wish you had grabbed a flower to dress up your desk or home, you need to be aware of how good "dressing up" the things in your life, makes you feel.
