  1. Jim Carey 2016 Golden Globes

    The Power of Film and Film Stars: Thank You Jim Carrey and Leonardo di Caprio

    I sat through the Golden Globe Awards hoping to see and hear something that would stay with me emotionally. With all the sixth grade humor about butt holes, alcohol and sexual innuendos I was able to multitask and get some work done on my new book, “Every Word Counts.” I kept thinking “When did we lose the elegance of wanting to elevate and help people grow?” Toward the end of th…Read More

  2. Women Leaders: We Do NOT have More Time to be Silent

    Rachel Carson who wrote a book of major importance “The Silent Spring” was a GUTSY woman who spoke out about the level of toxins in our world 50 years ago. Those numbers are higher and the risk more deadly. Someone recently commented that with all the toxins in the world we are living longer so why worry. Interesting point of view. Do yourself a favor and get a copy of Carson’s book. It is …Read More

  3. What do you do when you are ignored?

    Did you ever sit in a restaurant and wonder if you had a snake on your head, or maybe a bird’s nest, or a mouse, or if your face had turned bright blue? You sit there and question why the server is taking so long to get to your table. It looks like everyone else is getting attention. Your meal drags on and on.  When you finally get your food, it is put in front of you with a grunt. You accept …Read More

  4. First day of summer and stress

    Today officially marks the first day of summer. I don’t care that the ads have made it the end of May. This is official: longest day/shortest night…solstice. And man, is it hot on the east coast. Now that school is out and the new schedules are in place and the heat is up and the desire to just have fun is the summer requirement, what does that do to stress? Is summer a less stressful time?…Read More

  5. Pattern Interrupted

    It truly is all in the eyes of the beholder. I was at a business meeting and the leader of the team went on and on about a personal issue with a belligerent intern. She couldn't believe someone so far down on the pecking order would act as if he was the CEO of the company. Whenever the meeting was redirected back to real issues something triggered her upset and again she was off and running. The …Read More

  6. GUTSY Women and Attachment Parenting

    Time magazine May issue started a major brouhaha that is hopefully the beginning of a great dialogue about what it means to be a parent and what children really want and need. For me, the photo of the mother and three year old son at his mother’s breast brought up the controversy from decades ago about nursing moms. I was a “thoroughly modern Millie” who, along with most of my peers, saw nu…Read More

  7. Rush Limbaugh Being Told to “SHUT UP”

    Maybe, just maybe the era of anything goes is ending. Maybe, just maybe the guy with the loud mouth and no couth will be put out to pasture. It’s about time.   I have listened to Mr. Limbaugh, on occasion, to understand his appeal. I have always turned him off with a sense of deep sadness. Oh sure, he has made millions. However, inside that large frame is a tortured little child who is …Read More

  8. GUTSY Leadership: Butterflies in Your Belly

    When I met Livia Genova-Pagano at an eWomen’s networking event in suburban Philadelphia I was struck by her strong and assured presence. I saw the word GUTSY written in the middle of her forehead. When we talked I saw how perfectly positioned she was for life to take her on a fast and fun ride to high level leadership. Her delight with her company was effervescent, she bubbled and sparkled. We…Read More

  10. Workplace Conflict, Madonna, and the “Digitus Impudictus”

    Most workplace conflict is contained in a room, or maybe behind closed doors. Not so on Super Sunday when Madonna starred in her half time show ending with a vision of “world peace”. A gazillion people watched. So, what was with someone hired to come over from the UK to dance and sing who simply had to show that middle finger. For what purpose? This was a perfect example of workplace confl…Read More
