    5 Reasons You Need Your Girlfriends

    5 Reasons You Need Your Girlfriends
    I know this is a loaded statement, but here goes: I have always said that I don’t trust women who don’t have female friends. You know the type — the girl who spends her time exclusively with men. She thinks women are catty (women other than her, of course). For some inexplicable reason, other women just don’t like her. And she ...

    How to Overcome Discouragement

    How to Overcome Discouragement
    Who hasn’t seen one of the old classic movies wherein the main character or someone with him ends up stepping down into quicksand? What’s the one thing they tend to do first? They panic.

    My Disability: To Disclose or Not To Disclose

    My Disability: To Disclose or Not To Disclose
    I was born deaf in one ear and nearly deaf in the other. By the grace of incredible parents and teachers I was “mainstreamed” at a very young age, meaning I talk and “hear” like most people. Despite many suggestions, I have never learned sign language. My hearing loss often goes by undetected, despite an ugly hearing aid and slight accent. ...

    Eight Conversation Killers to Avoid

    Eight Conversation Killers to Avoid
    Recently, I was taking in a rare sunny day on my lunch break, when I ran into an acquaintance. The first thing she said to me wasn’t “Hi” or “How are you?” but “Wow, you look so tired!” I don’t even remember my immediate response because I was too focused on my depleting self-esteem levels. I wanted to say, “Gee, thanks. ...

    Working Women, Where Did We Go So Wrong?

    Working Women, Where Did We Go So Wrong?
    I have a big confession: I think we women ruined the workplace. Ouch. I don't want to feel that way, but take a look. Once upon a time, when a woman took a professional job, she worked a 60-hour week on average. Her boss was a man and she thought she had to prove herself. She didn't make any more money ...

    Women, Do You Recognize Your Strengths?

    Women, Do You Recognize Your Strengths?
    What are your strengths? Can you articulate them? Do you focus on them? I’m going to guess that you don’t as much as you should—for two reasons.
