    This week, I am delighted to have Justin Darling as my guest blogger. Stress: The Double-Edged Sword Is stress a good thing or a bad thing? How do you manage your stress?

  • Are you a receiver?

    It’s very hard at times to always be a giver.  You must allow yourself to receive and allow that element of balance into your life, in business and your personal life. During the course of a work week, I speak with many professionals across various sectors in business. The latest conversation that seems to be repetitively spoken to […]

  • Balance What You See

    Being at the start of a new year allows me to feel excitement, potential and endless possibilities. My passion is work life balance. My speaking engagements allow me to reach larger audiences as well as present consulting opportunities with companies to assist them (specifically their HR departments) with strategies to help people get off short-term […]

  • Balancing the What-If-Itis

    Welcome to 2016! Ready for the next journey in your new beautiful book full of 365 pages?  We are now into day 5. So far, I am impressed with the launch of this new year. All that it will bring has been up to me.  My goals, dreams and aspirations. Sitting in silence and finding […]

  • Goodbye, 2015 – Hello 2016 with Balance!

    My last blog of the year.  Wow…where has this year gone?  More importantly, how fun is it to reflect back on twelve months of pure awesomeness! Yes, I love this word! Learning, growing, achieving and self-reflection all come to my mind. It’s been a year of new relationships (personally and professionally). Travel to new places, […]

  • Today is going to be a great day!

    Anyone who knows me can elude to you that my passion for living an authentic life is truly filled with work life balance. Certainly, I am not any different from you.  I have experienced loss, sadness, trauma during different parts of my life, now that I am (almost) middle aged…. Work Life Balance comes from […]

  • There’s more to life…

    “One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one’s work is terribly important”. -Bertrand Russell What a powerful quote. Mental health in the workplace is not decreasing or slowing down.  On the contrary, it’s increasing each day. Work is ONE element of your Work Life Balance equation. This week, I have had […]

  • Finding Balance – Even When Life is Tough!

    This week I am publishing my blog a day early.  Unfortunately, my husband’s uncle passed away and I am attending a funeral out of town. I’m passionate and committed to blogging on Work Life Balance weekly.  Even when life happens, work life balance can happen – it’s a simple shift with a bit of time […]

  • It’s a Simple Decision

    As I write this week’s blog, I am continually dumbfounded that people are pushing themselves beyond their limits — physically, psychologically, emotionally — the message here on ALL levels. We are not built to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  There is nothing in the world that is so important you risk your health […]

  • Discovering Imbalance – Fear or Intelligent?

    The moment you are mentoring a private client and it happens. The ‘aha’ moment. They discover imbalance and I usually see tears of joy and self-awareness! The meeting when an employer and an employee have direct communication and we arrive at the root of the problem and a plan is developed to get that employee […]
