  • Stars - Stepping out of my car at night, standing in my driveway in the Chicago suburbs as remnants of the summer sun’s heat still trapped in the asphalt flows up and around my legs I absentmindedly look up, and remember […]

  • Stop the Violence - The following statistics may shock you. I know that on first hearing about the 2012 study conducted by RTI International and Blue Shield of California Foundation on 1,430 7th grade students, I was shocked. Being a survivor of dating and domestic violence myself, I knew just how serious the problem was for women. I knew […]

  • Misbehaving Women - The quote “Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History” has always fascinated me. The author of this unique interpretation of what is necessary for a woman’s success is Laurel Thatcher Ulrich. Her life’s work of recovering the history of women, who had not been properly included in the history books despite their astounding contributions, was unknown […]

  • Union - Glancing up at my house as I turned from the mailbox and began to walk across the road on an incredible summer day, the “Proud Union Home” sign in the window caught my eye.

  • Hero - While sitting across the white tablecloth from Grandma and singing “Happy Birthday” it occurred to me how truly beautiful she was on her ninety-sixth birthday. I didn’t think it was possible to be beautiful at ninety-six but she had proved me wrong. She had dressed up in a hot pink blouse and wore a stunning […]

  • Love Thy Neighbor” - “… After all, the purpose of running a business is to make money!” The fragmented sentence spewed out of the radio at me as I was hurrying through the kitchen on my way to do something that was so important that I can’t remember it right now. Hearing this bellicose smug statement had the same […]

  • Silent Spring” - … "I’ve never seen anything so beautiful!” My youngest son, Joseph, had called his mom and dad to share the moment with him. This was the first time that he had seen one and I envied him. I’ve never seen one but now I know I will. It’s like a dream come true. They are finally coming back! […]

  • Roots” - This year as Father’s Day came and went thoughts of my dad came to mind. I have childhood memories of him that still make me smile. He was the one who felt my head for fever and tucked the blanket around me when I was sick and laying on the front room couch. He was the one who took me to the movies introducing me to […]

  • Networking for Women” - So you want to get into the Networking scene… Or do you? Networking is a skill that is an essential component of success in today’s business environment. Networking feels unnatural almost alien, to many women who have been introduced to it while attending […]

  • The Greatest Fear: Step #4 – Project Your Image - It’s imperative that you give serious thought to the personal image that you project when you stand in front of an audience (even an audience of one). Before you speak a word, your spectators are unconsciously keying in and forming opinions on who they think you are. Don’t detract from all the great work you […]

  • The Greatest Fear: Step #1 – Organize Your Data - Welcome to the first step of my five step plan for cultivating effective presentation/communication skills. Admittedly this is the least “sexy” of the five steps and some of you may think what follows is intuitive to everyone, but in my experience it’s not. Creating an outline for a presentation can seem like a formidable task […]

  • The Greatest Fear - “What is your greatest fear?” Since the 70’s several prominent surveys have asked thousands of Americans just that, and over 40% of them have consistently answered “the fear of public speaking”. And surprisingly, the prospect of standing in front of an audience had been considered by most of those polled to be more frightening than […]
