To School or Not To School

And then like so many parents out there I was so overwhelmed that I just had to take a break. A break from thinking about it (ok I tried to but that didn’t really work), a break from teaching my children and working from home, a break from ...

We are in the home stretch, the last week to complete the 2020 U.S. Census. You might have received the mailing earlier this year, for me it was March 23. It was a simple letter, with a link to the website and a phone number in multiple languages, which took only 5 minutes to complete.

Combat Procrastination: 4 Tips to Help You Get the Job Done

I am the queen of procrastination, always have been. Throughout school and into my adult life, I always waited until the last minute to get something done, telling myself that I work best under pressure. The reality was, I didn’t feel like doing the work, and so I waited until it was absolutely necessary. This behavior resulted in so much unnecessary stress.

When I started my companies, ...

Grounded

At the risk of sounding political, I believe in science.

I spent way too many hours subjecting my brain to a Math-O-Matic blender of science classes in school to discount it. Let’s face it, nobody would have made it that hard if there wasn’t some validity to it.

Oh I believe in other important stuff too, like astrology and miracles for instance, but a well-accepted scientific ...
