    I'm About to Become a Working Mom

    I'm About to Become a Working Mom
    There wasn’t a lot to do growing up in a small town in the middle of nowhere Missouri. I became a musician at the age of 3 and took on the odd job of being a full-time organist at my church at the age of 11. I took my first paying organist position at 13. Music seemed to be my career ...

    Would You Hire a Pregnant Woman?

    Would You Hire a Pregnant Woman?
    Would you hire a pregnant woman? If you're British and said yes, then you're decidedly in the minority among your peers. A recent survey by the UK-based Employment Law Advisory Services (ELAS) found that only 5% of managers would offer a job to a pregnant candidate. Fifty-two percent said that when making a hire, they assessed the likelihood of a candidate's ...

    Nice Girls Don’t Ask

    Nice Girls Don’t Ask
    It should come as no surprise that men and women are still treated unequally in the workplace, with women being both paid less and underrepresented in top jobs in corporate America. But there is another, subtler source of inequality that can affect entrepreneurs, too. Women often don’t get what they want and deserve because they don’t ask for it. A recent ...

    10 Roadblocks on the Road to Happiness
    Let's be honest, we all want more in life. We want more money, more freedom, more peace, and more time. In a perfect world, we would have all these things and more, but that's just not how it happens. Life has a way of becoming filled with "stuff".

    How to Recession-Proof Your Wardrobe

    How to Recession-Proof Your Wardrobe
    It's official: America's in a recession. The worst since the Great Depression, to be exact.

    10 Kitchen Cabinet Cures

    10 Kitchen Cabinet Cures
    When I’m feeling ill, the last thing I want to do is drag myself out of bed to get to the nearest pharmacy. Besides the fact that medicine can get pricey, sometimes it makes me feel even sicker.

    Clock Out!

    Clock Out!
    I am trying to teach myself a valuable lesson... learning to “clock out.” As an entrepreneur, I am so conditioned to working twenty-four-seven, I have trouble shutting off—hence, having my computer with me at the hospital when I was giving birth to my son Jackson last May. I have to sometimes remind myself that I changed professions (from relocation consultant to ...
