Having worked remotely for the last 10 years or so, when the coronavirus pandemic forced us to quarantine to the confines of our home, I wasn't really phased by it. In fact, being an ambivert (an extraverted introvert) I was secretly looking forward to a little social distancing. 

However, I noticed that many of my clients who are also working remotely have been experiencing a heightened level of fatigue and overwhelm. While they're happy to skip the long commutes and eating out,...

Menopause and Your Career

career mindset Mar 02, 2020

We don’t talk enough about menopause, and I believe it’s because it only impacts half of the population. While we’ll talk about it amongst ourselves, the impact of menopause on our mental and physical well-being not only effects how we live our lives, but also how we manage our careers.

Menopause usually occurs between 45 and 55, which is a critical stage of our careers. In fact, it's when we’re most likely to be in leadership roles. I was 46 when my body kicked...

The Art of Getting Things Done (Part 1)

business career mindset Sep 09, 2019

I'm often asked how I'm able to get so much done. The assumption is I don't sleep or have a staff of people supporting my every move. While I do have support in my business, and get plenty of sleep, the truth is I've just figured out how to be as efficiently productive as I can possible be.

Career Reset: Take the Career Confidence Challenge

career mindset Jul 27, 2019

The average divorce rate in the US is between 40-50%. Why do I bring that up? Because the "divorce rate" among new hires and their employers is about the same!

It can be easier to get into a "morning routine" when you have to physically leave your home, but when all you have to do is walk to another part of your home from the comfort of your bed it can be a bit more challenging.

It’s tempting to wear your PJ’s or...

mindset travel/wardrobe Mar 27, 2019

Remember when Samantha Jones in Sex and the City 2, announced she was going through menopause while in the midst of a devastating hot flash?

The Sex and the City movie had fun with this storyline, even though Kim Cattrall, the lady herself, hadn't start going through menopause until two years later.
