Rebooting ... The Why, The When, The Can I and The How!

Ann Fry | Posted 09.29.2016 | Business
Ann Fry

You wake up one day. You look at your business, you look at your life and you wonder, "is that all there is?" You secretly wonder, "is it finally time for me to declare what I really want?" I would venture to say that a majority of people feel this way at one time or another. They secretly yearn for something more or better or different.

Michelle Dempsey | Posted 07.06.2016 | Women
Michelle Dempsey

I look back on the last four years and I am amazed at all I have accomplished. Not because they were impossible feats, but because they were life events I never felt worth enough of achieving. Marriage. Motherhood. Business Success. A healthy relationship with my family. A badass relationship with myself.

The Success Key To Pressing Reset On Your Career

Many employees find themselves stuck in a rut 5-7 years after joining the workforce. They stay put, often thinking that they must stick it out with the job where they started, like their parents did.

Trust The Timing Of Your Life

Lisa Schmidt

Women often identify who they are by the labels and titles (roles) they have taken on. I consider myself a pretty strong woman and even I wandered in the "what the hell do I do now" desert for a while, when the identity I intended to have for a long while was gone.

Trusting After Major Heartbreak

Bonnie Koehn | Posted 04.18.2016 | Divorce
Bonnie Koehn

I went through two of these major disasters in a row; jumping into the second one to numb the pain of the first. When the dust settled on the second crash, I barely recognized myself. Before I could even consider trusting another person, I had to rebuild my belief in my own judgement. It's still a daily practice, trusting that I can and will choose wisely.

The Man That Got Away

Brett Longhi

We meet someone we are completely infatuated with, we spend each waking moment with them, we see them naked, we see them drunk, you fight and then you make up. Then out of nowhere like a car that runs out of gasoline on the side of the road, it stops. It almost seems inevitable.

Everything Is Finished. Everything Is Beginning.

Cynthia Huggins | Posted 04.12.2016 | Education
Cynthia Huggins

Who am I now? That's still an open question for me, and I'm not someone who's especially comfortable with ambiguity. If this is a beginning, rather than an end, what is it that's beginning? And if other people no longer look at me and see the president, who do they see?

My friends back in New York often make remarks about how different I am now. I am different now, I needed to change. They mention how much happier I seem since I made my move, built a family, and began finding success in my dream career. I am happier, I deserve to be.

Julie Spira

It started out as a real-life fairy tale. Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. They stare at each other from across a crowded room and knew with all certainty they were "the one." With their hearts beating heavily, they fall in love at first sight, and ride off into the sunset together. Well, almost.

5 Life Lessons That Only Took Me 42 Years to Learn

It's been a rocky 42 years, but I am pleased to report life seems to be turning itself around. It wasn't for a lack of trying, because I have always been a scrapper. Rather, it was for a lack of understanding.

My Love Letter To Failure

Janet Bertolus | Posted 09.28.2016 | Women
Janet Bertolus

Just uttering your name, Failure, can set a person's teeth on edge, but please don't take it personally. I'll give it to you straight. The reason you're not welcome in our lives is because we're all terrified that when you show up you'll get comfortable, and never leave.

Here I am, at yet another open door in my life, lingering at the threshold again. But this time around, I know better. I know that when life moves, it does so for me. Like an invisible hand, a guiding force greater than myself, and a loving one, at that. One that wants every single one of us to live in joy.

I feel quite lucky to have slipped down the stairs, in my last act. I may not have had the story redevelop as it has, with out that break. The fall encouraged my awareness that the show must go on, with a proper script. We get to write, produce, direct and perform on this stage, this life, we have been cast for.

Alone, But Not Lonely

Tamsen_Fadal | Posted 07.20.2016 | Women
Tamsen_Fadal

Who wants to be alone? My dad's words made no sense to me at the time. The idea of walking into a restaurant and saying to the hostess "Just one, please" is daunting, terrifying, and depressing. Movies alone. Shopping alone. Entire weekends alone. It all just sounds and feels terrible. Bleak. Until it doesn't.
