Do You Need A Willpower Manager?

Did you know women overestimate their willpower? They do! I know it from first-hand experience. How many times have you been in a conversation with a friend? Or with yourself? It starts something like “That’s it! Once and for all, I’m going to ___________.” All is good and fine for a few hours, a few […]

I Am Spinning My Wheels Today!

Does this happen to you? It is 1:48 in the afternoon, and I feel like I have accomplished NOTHING today. I have so much to do, but it seems like I haven’t pulled out a to-do list today. Wait! The real problem with the to-do list is that it’s not updated. I’m like the cobbler […]

Be A Proactive Welcomer

Two years ago, I attended a women’s event as a guest of a lovely friend. Given she is the president of the organization, she was beyond busy when I arrived, so I milled around, visiting some of the information tables and not knowing one single person in the room. Until one of my ever-so-friendly customers […]

Have A Friend, Be A Friend

Women. Need. Friends. You know it, right? And, yet, women are lonelier than ever in our history? According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), two in five Americans report that they sometimes or always feel their social relationships are not meaningful, and one in five say they feel lonely or socially isolated. In […]
