    Stop. And Breathe!

    Stop. And Breathe!
    Last week was just a bear of a week for me. Professionally it turned out to be a great week, but as far as the ability to manage my time well enough to get things done, well lets just say that I would have to give my overall performance a thumbs down.

    How to Manifest Luck in Your Life and Career
    Most of the things we call luck are really results of statistical probability. When someone has a fender bender, it wasn’t bad luck that they happened to be on the road at that particular time.

    Don't Just Survive--Thrive! 5 Ways to a "Thrival" Mindset

    Don't Just Survive--Thrive! 5 Ways to a "Thrival" Mindset
    I do not believe in survival — I believe in “thrival.” But, I have always been told to survive.

    Work-Life Balance Reality Check: You're Not Superwoman
    Admit it. Who among us wasn’t psyched when we first heard Michelle Obama commit to make work/life balance issues a national priority?
