Career Development: Creating a Two Part Exit Strategy

If you are contemplating a career change may I suggest you consider an exit strategy? In the world of our careers, any time you are considering a change in careers, you would do well if you put together a strategy to pull the plug where you are in a professional way. In addition to that you should have yourself financially prepared for what will most likely be a change in your income. Both things are what I think are essential to a great exit strategy. Let’s look at what you should consider for… Continue

Cyber Monday! Cause for Celebration! - Weekly Wings

Let the festivities begin! Our middles are a bit swollen from the Thanksgiving food-fest that went on this past Thursday. And if you, like us, had family that lingered well into the weekend then you too continued to stuff more than the turkey! As Thanksgiving gave way to “Black Friday”, the traditional brick and mortar retail sales…

Forget Turkey and Stuffing, I'll Have Pennies and Dimes

Does anyone else out there find it disturbing that The Internet can either tell you that everything is going to be alright, or in the next page load, that death is imminent and the emergency room is calling your name?

So many people caution against using The Internet for medical advice, but it is hard to resist when you have a burning question about, for example, your child eating a penny.

I am happy to say this did not happen on my watch. My son “might have” eaten a penny… Continue

I found a great site for local activities, classes and camps in your city!

Do you ever feel like finding new activities to keep the kiddies involved and entertained is becoming a full-time job? I know I used to. That was until I heard about a great new

site, provides the nation’s largest online parent resource for finding kid’s lessons, classes and camps…and it’s free. Sign-up is highly recommended (although not required) to optimize your search results. The directory is searchable by zip code and nearly 80 activity… Continue

A Few Reasons My Kids Believe In Santa

It's shocking anyone believes in Santa with beards like that around!

When I was about six years old, my parents went to Ireland for three weeks. My aunt and uncle stepped up to the plate – they were a lot younger than my parents and a heck of a lot more fun. One night they let us stay up

way past bedtime and watch “Invasion of the Body…

Who Needs Daylight Savings?

One of my favorite sayings is, “Never underestimate the power of stupidity in a large group of people.” It’s like, when a big, huge group gets together, sometimes individual brains are forgotten and one giant stupid brain takes over.

Take, for example, Daylight “Savings” time.

There are so many things wrong with this unnecessary event that we willingly allow to royally mess up our systems. Many people seem to agree with me. Many people want to jump off the crazy train… Continue

Career Change: You won’t Change for Love or Money?

As I was growing up, the term “for Love or Money” was often used after a statement about doing something. It was a way of saying the two most important things in the world are still not big enough, powerful enough or important enough to move or sway a person to do something. When it comes to improving your job or career, clearly we’re not changing for love or money, because 60% of us hate our job and are simply not doing anything about it. Yet, love and money can be significantly improved, if… Continue

Starting The Day On The Right Side Of The Bed

When your alarm goes off each morning what is the first thing you do? Do you hit snooze? Do you then hit snooze again, roll over and wish you didn’t have to get out of bed?

*Small giggle* I can definitely relate. Everyone has those

days. I sometimes miss being able to roll over and go back to sleep,

or sleep until noon. But surely you have realized that as we get

older and gain more and more responsibility, even our days off…

My Personal Development Discovery

I came across personal development about six month ago and on the weekend I was doing my Beyond Freedom Evolution (my personal development

program) as I do everyday and I quickly stopped reading the section I

was on and headed back to a section on fear.

I actually thought I had covered everything to do with my fears as in being…
