Economic Clarity? Get those glasses on.

2013 certainly has been no picnic for most of us. Some markets and industries are feeling pretty good about now; can you say  hashtag #Twitter IPO. But for most of us, it continues to be a "work hard, play hard and little chance to put money in bank for a rainy day" economy. The heavy storms have lifted in some markets but for the most part we've continued to keep our heads down trying to keep focus around keeping motherhood, work, daycare, social lives, school activities and downtime in…

The Ultimate Mother Day Gift- a Career!

The official Hallmark Holiday named Mother’s Day is approaching quickly.  I tend to believe that we should be celebrated every day rather than one lone Sunday during the month of May.  That’s just me.  Last year I blogged on Butterfly about giving ourselves the gift of time- time off and time out as…

Entrepreneurship. The answer to a $hitty job deficit?! - Weekly Wings

I ripped an article out of the New York Postlast week so that I could reiterate the growing job sectors anticipated for 2012-2020: Retail sales +70%, Home Health Care +69% and Registered Nurses +58%.  The financial services field and the information technology arena- not so rosy of a future.  In turn, does this mean that the unemployed population will be fighting for…

Spam in NOT on the Menu - Weekly Wings

Spam. Never liked the stuff- be it in the can or out. Lately, I’ve been seeing more spam out of the can and in the pages of MyWorkButterfly.com.  If you are confused as to what “spam” is as it relates to our community- let me clarify:

 

  1. If you are selling or directly promoting your business- that is spam.
  2. If you…

Child Sexual Abuse - Weekly Wings



I am quite fond, to put it mildly, of Butterfly member Jill Starishevsky and her hard- hitting posts on the topic of child abuse and sex crimes.  As an Assistant District Attorney in New York City, Jill has prosecuted hundreds of sex offenders.  She is also the protective mother of three!

I'll Tell You my New Year's Resolution if You Tell me Yours - Weekly Wings

Happy 2012 to you and your families!  Let’s start off by getting a few clichés out of the way. I resolve to: eat healthier, or less, and to exercise seven days a week. I resolve to stay organized, spend more quality time with my children and to become a better cook.  But, what I really want to say is that, “I RESOLVE TO STOP BEING SO DAMN HARD ON MYSELF!!”…

Why are You Still Single? - Weekly Wings



Business took me to California earlier this week where I found myself mixing with remarkably talented, accomplished women in their 40’s and 50’s.  All financially independent, in high-powered jobs and most, if not all, SINGLE.  The divorced single mom and the recent, never been married NYC transplant, both pondered the same question, “Why am I Still Single?”

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…

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

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

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
