How to Through A Larger Than Life Small Wedding on a Budget

This one is as simple as crowdfunding your honeymoon. It might sound strange at first, but do you really need another blender or set of dinner plates? Instead of having your guests purchase a bunch of things you’ll end up trying to return anyway, why not let them chip in for…

How Due Date Calculators Can Change Your Pregnancy for the Better

Learning that you are pregnant can be one of the most joyous occasions in a woman’s life. As many of us know pregnancy can happen spontaneously or after much trying.  Regardless of how a woman becomes pregnant, it is vitally important for her to know when she…

Stop "Getting Ready" To Work In A "Man's World"

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?”

Well, let's see---under most circumstances we women are the homemaker, the teacher, the nurse, the mother (and often times - the father), the coach, the friend, and often the significant breadwinner. We fix, we do, we nurture, we organize, we (you fill in the blank) so many things…on so little energy.

Then on top of it all we must be alerted to and be conscious of our roles as women in the workplace. As a working woman, you need to keep in mind your physical femininity, your vocal appropriateness, and many times you may need to defer your voice to be supportive of a man/the men in your life.

Yes----many of these things are true and if you have lived long enough you will likely have a much harsher commentary about these things. GET OVER IT. Yes, that's what I said! If you have said to yourself at times in your life "it's not fair", the truth is you’re right…life isn't always fair.

If we understand this, we can move on and create a good life doing the things we really want! Let the man in your life feel that your thoughts and ideas were his! Really does it matter?

In the workplace, a boss does know the difference ....trust me, I am a boss! And if you feel you cannot continue to "push the mountain up the hill" it is a serious sign to question your specific life choices. If you have the patience and the time you will find that men are probably more emotional than women.

So just picture in your mind - the next time you feel ignored or dismissed by a man in your life - they are really babies with boxing gloves on! Just find a way to dodge that "punch" --after all you've got what it takes to be a working woman in a man's world!!

Remember, if you shoot for the moon and miss, you are still among the stars!
