Do you know why you do what you do?

Do you know why you do what you do?

By Chris Hammer, Ph.D., Leadership and Life Coach

I’m going to stick with the theme of motivation for another article; simply because it’s been on my mind lately as I continue to spend the time developing new products and services. This isn’t easy for me to do; I struggle with motivation at times just like the rest of us. Continue Reading

Make some selfish goals

Make some selfish goals

By Christie Mawer

Say it with me S-E-L-F-I-S-H: SELFISH.  When you say that word, what happens to you?  Does it give you a little knot in the stomach?  Do you hear your mom telling you , “Don’t be mean.  That’s selfish.  You have to share!” Do you hear platitudes like, “It’s better to give than to receive”?  Do you cringe at the thought of being called selfish/self-centered/egotistical/greedy and so on?

The mother load: What’s wrong with a simple childhood?

The mother load: What’s wrong with a simple childhood?

By Lori-Anne Charlton

I made the decision, even before my oldest son was born, that my kids were going to have a simple childhood.

They weren’t going to have more toys than they’d know what to do with (that one went down the pipes at the first of five baby showers), they weren’t going to be in front of the TV and computer all the time (still working on that one) and they weren’t going to be over-scheduled with lessons and sports and organized activities.

I wavered, just a little bit and only momentarily, on that last one last week. Continue Reading

The mother load: The boss

The mother load: The boss

By Lori-Anne Poirier

A lot of stay-at-home moms I have encountered feel uncomfortable calling themselves stay-at-home moms. They feel that there’s a stigma in the moniker that downplays the importance of their role and the magnitude of their responsibilities. For some, it makes them feel inferior – especially in a crowd of “career” women. So they give themselves a title like Domestic Engineer, or Home Manager. A SAHM myself, I’ve been thinking a lot about the work force lately, and how it compares to motherhood. And I’m not sure that I like that comparison. Continue Reading

The mother load: The zen of housework

The mother load: The zen of housework

By Lori-Anne Poirier

Back in the days when I was a pensive university student I had a part time job, cleaning house for a couple of homes off campus. It was hardly lucrative, but it supplied me with an entertainment fund (a necessity when London – the English one – is only an hour away) and an opportunity to peek inside some quaint, English homes. But there was something else I got out of the experience – something quite unexpected. Continue Reading

The Bad Kitty Mews: Men hate women, women hate men – stop the hate!

By Christie Mawer

When my last article on International Women’s Day was posted on Facebook our editor-in-chief made the comment that women are already confident enough which started a storm of comments yaying and naying that comment.  This inspired me to make further comments. Continue Reading
