  • A podcast with CoActive Dreams

    I’m in a busy season right now, but not too busy to sit down for a few minutes with Cherrie McKenzie from CoActive Dreams. Cherrie blogs to help individuals or corporate professionals succeed at the intersection of career, self and family. She contacted me after she read a comment I posted on the NY Times website, and wanted to learn more about women […]

  • Betwixt and Between

    How do you get from where you are to where you want to be? I’ve written a lot on this blog about the need for women to build new businesses – different kinds of businesses – if we hope to achieve a better balance in our workplaces and in our lives. But how does that happen? How do you live […]

  • When “Equilibrium” Means “No”

    One of the greatest forces we have for equilibrium is the power of our own choices. I was reminded of this last month as I sat wringing my hands in Galway, Ireland, making a choice of my own. It was New Year’s Day, I was midway through a wonderful vacation with my family – and I was supposed to be […]

  • Bye-bye to the Long-Hours Culture

    The title above was the subtitle of a recent article by Lucy Kellaway, a columnist for the Financial Times. This full-page piece ran in the Business section of “The World in 2015,” by The Economist. I was so excited to see a global periodical dedicate a full page of commentary to changing attitudes on work hours. Why? Because women have […]

  • Life Comes First

      “My kids have no memories of me at dinner – I never made it home before dinner.” My sister was sharing this quip from a male colleague of hers, and it really struck me – though perhaps not for the reason you’d think. I know plenty of men who are choosing to let presence, not absence, define their family […]

  • Is your workplace built on love – or fear? Here are 2 ways to tell.

    We are embedded in fear – more deeply than we realize, much of the time. It’s ingrained, so we don’t even realize it much of the time. It’s become part of our autopilot at work – and in life. If you want to see whether you’re operating mostly out of fear or out of love, there are two places to […]

  • Closing the Gap

    “We’re minding the gap, but how do we close it?” That’s the question the Women Donors Network asked recently. A lot has been written lately about all the gaps that exist for women – in business leadership, in political leadership, in the imbalance of how many hours of taking care of our families women still shoulder even if they are […]

  • Step one: This conversation.

    Step one: This conversation. A few weeks ago I had the honor of speaking at Penn State University’s wonderful “Powerful Women Paving the Way” conference. I love the conference name. I love that it was organized by a student organization, Women in Business. And I love that there was a diverse mixture of women and men both in the students […]

  • Announcing Conversations!

    Since the forming of GirlAuthentic, there have been many requests to tell people what the “model” looks like for a new business that is based on a balance of the feminine and masculine. I have resisted answering the requests with only my specific ideas. I do have some ideas, but I guarantee you they are only some of the ideas, […]
