Surprising Way to Bring Closure

Old, unresolved conflicts can be maddening, heartbreaking, and distracting.  And, because it takes two to tango you may feel that it takes to two to bring closure.  Most times you’re probably right but I discovered the other day that that’s not always the case.

For the past few years I’ve gotten the cold shoulder from someone who has the skills to address disagreements but chooses not to with me.  Every once in a while I would run into him and be reminded that he’s very angry about…

How social are you? - Weekly Wings

For those of us in the social media industry - and/or simply those who share their "social time" with the likes of Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and perhaps a few blogs to boot - make room for Google + (or GooglePlus). Yes, Google launched a few bombs with Buzz, Orkut and Wave, but our guess is that Google knew it could not afford to get it wrong this time- especially with Facebook breathing down its…

What My Kids Taught Me When My Dad Died

My father died in December. He had spent the last several years very unwell, and my mother spent a lot of her time taking care of him. That is a difficult situation for any family, but it is even more difficult when the person you are caring for continuously makes choices that contribute to their bad health. And so, although he was a loved man, the result was a team of…

Are you living the dream? - Weekly Wings

Did you ever thumb through a magazine and become engrossed in an editorial feature about so and so following their dreams? About how this one or that one uprooted their family to sell hats in the majestic Virgin Islands, make and sell jewelry along the sunny gold coast of Australia?  We immerse ourselves in these features and think, “I wish I could” or “Some day that will be me.” These men, women,… Continue

Job Search: We’re NOT Just Looking For a Job

I recently posted a question in various Linked In groups and posed the question “What are your Career goals for 2011?”  Among the many things I heard about, a common theme among the job seekers was, of course, to get a job.  It didn’t stop there.  We’re not just looking for a job; we’re looking for more.

I’d like to discuss some of the comments people made because I think these people are on the right track.  Here are some of the things we’re looking for.

-        We want to be…

Career Management: Are YOU Career Lazy?

Warning!  I’m about to speak in code.  We like to think of ourselves as: “not interested in making big money” or “not overly ambitious” or “focused more on life than work” or what?  Being lazy is something we don’t like to admit to ourselves much less our own mother (who will love us no matter what except being lazy).  We will substitute other words and rationalization for our behavior.  You think we can’t tell but we can.  You’re lazy and second to bad body odor, no one really wants to…

State of economy and what we are doing to affect change! - Weekly Wings

When we launched Butterfly in January 2009, we had no idea that the largest monthly job loss, 796,000, would follow some sixty days later in March of 2009. 


This extreme loss further validated the goal of Butterfly - to support and encourage one another in entrepreneurship, to… Continue

An Ode to my Daughter at Sleep Away Camp



Once upon a time there lived a sweet young girl with dimples deep enough to drink water out of.  The girl often wondered what it would be like to visit a magical place where all of her friends shared one room to sleep each night, where they could laugh and smile as they dress together each morning, share delicious meals at the same table, visit water parks, dance, twirl in gymnastics, play soccer, softball and swim on the sunniest of days.  A place like this sounded like…

Are You A Nosey Parker?

Rather than "shush" my kid, I just throw another plug in his gob

I’m a little bit nosey and don’t pretend otherwise. On my recent travels to a conference, I injected myself into a couple of situations that were none of my business. I just couldn’t help it.

The first was on my way to the conference. Across the aisle from me sat a mother and her…
