The Myth of Job Security

blog entrepreneurship Jul 02, 2020

I've heard countless people say they would never work for themselves because they need job security. They typically go on to explain their rationale, such as having children to support, a non-working spouse or a chronic medical condition necessitating group health insurance, or all of the above. Some will speak wistfully about the lure of self-employment, as though it is the ultimate work experience and they truly hope they will be able to achieve it "someday", while others scoff at the...

Obligation Management

blog boundaries Jun 25, 2020

Listen. If you are a driven woman, you have simply got to get in control of your day. Otherwise, it will control you. I am a bit of a productivity fanatic, so I am always on the lookout for every new app, brain hack, and planner that promises to help me get more done in less time. BUT, none of those tools are going to make a bit of difference unless you make and follow some simple rules about where your time goes, and to whom.

Put Your Mind To It

blog the driven woman Jun 05, 2020

I'm sure you've heard the expression "I can do anything, once I've put my mind to it" or "She's a real go-getter, once she puts her mind to something." Your parents and teachers probably said it about you when you were a kid; and your friends, partners, and co-workers have been saying it ever since. Maybe you've said it about yourself too. I know I have. All my life, once I put my mind to something, it was as good as done. I had the drive, the determination, the persistence and the desire to...
