Turkey: What I learned from overconsuming! - Weekly Wings

I have finally risen from my turkey-induced coma and was curious to know if anyone else ate oneself into oblivion? Nonetheless, it was a nice respite from work…that I am sure you will all agree.  I spent Thanksgiving Day, before our family feast, with my husband and kids at the Salvation Army.  The obvious notion was to show my…

Bad Boss Series: What To Do When The Boss – Takes Credit For Your Work?

Among the many things that bad bosses have been known to do is to take credit for your hard work or ideas.  You don’t like it when a peer does it, but with that group, you feel you might have some recourse to stifle what they’re doing.  What do you do when a boss does it?

The line between a legitimate ethics violation and simply representing innovation in the department can at times be hard to tell.  There are some perspectives to have first before taking any action.

You need…

Occupy what street? - Weekly Wings

On September 17, 2011 men and women (and some kids alike) took to occupy Wall Street in a protest against financial greed and corruption.

What started in Zuccotti Park, NYC, has now spread as an international movement.  I’ve personally witnessed the filth covered, colored tarps… Continue

Talking to Kids About Sexual Abuse - ABC News Interview

As many of you know, I prosecute child abuse and sex crimes in New York City and wrote a book to help parents talk to their children about child sex abuse prevention called My Body Belongs to Me. In the wake of the Penn State scandal, as a prevention specialist, it is difficult to watch Sandusky get so much air time and sit idly by as the media remains silent on the subject of prevention.  As such, I am sharing with my contacts, and asking them to share…

Did I let my 11-yr. old son buy an iPhone? - Weekly Wings

I am sure you are all waiting with baited breath to read the outcome of my parenting quandary- Do I allow my 11-year old son to purchase an iPhone with HIS HARD-EARNED money?  Before I get there, I wanted to say thank you, thank you and thank you, for your insightful and quite rational advice.  My son read through ALL of your posts (tallying them along the way) and is particularly keen on member Jennifer… Continue

Conflict on Aisle Three!

Shopping during the holidays can be a real nightmare.   Facing parking lots jammed with cars, performing complicated search and rescue efforts to find an available cart, and approaching aisles with your best obstacle course strategies can cause even the most happy-go-lucky holiday shopper to start up a conflict with any stranger who dares cross his path.  Delivering an…

Parenting Quandary... I Need Your Help! - Weekly Wings

So much has transpired since last week’s “Weekly Wings”… the snow has melted, trees have fallen, power has been lost and restored, (in most areas in the Northeast) and I am STILL trying desperately to mentor my own son.

If you did not read last week’s edition, I will bring you up to speed. In short, son wants iPhone, mom says, “I’M NOT BUYING”, son shovels snow for money and in the end mom… Continue

Everybody's Shoveling...

I’ve spoken much about mentoring since Butterfly’s inception in 2009 and how important it is to have someone who strongly influences you (for the better) in work and in life.  We are all mentors, in a sense, as we continue to be role models for our children, displaying hard work, drive and dedication.


As a mother, I hope to teach my children the value of a dollar and the value…

Top Presentation Sites

The bright lights are beaming into your eyes, preventing you from seeing the massive crowd that is before you.. your heart beats, your palms become sweaty and you desperately try to swallow and find that your mouth is dry and parched.. the podium feels like it's the only thing you have left to stand on; yet, you don't find it to be trustworthy... 
Ah, presentations. I have had heard many people discuss how… Continue
