Work-Life Balance

Executive Presence and Work-Life Balance


We've all been hearing and reading about executive presence and how developing it can greatly increase your ability to be noticed for your "it" factor, and, ultimately, promoted on your job or elevated in your business or profession. But, there is more to executive presence than confidence and being well-dressed and well-spoken.  What about just being "WELL"?  It is so important for you to be healthy, happy and whole in your life. This has a powerful and direct impact on your executive presence.

It's Okay to Ask for Help When You Need It

 Ihate spring colds (well, all colds actually), but with the change of seasons, my rigorous travel and work schedule, and a nasty virus going around town, I got sick with a full blown upper respiratory infection.  Yuck!  It hit me from one day to the next and  "Whammo!" I was down for the count with a lot of work still to do.  I needed help.

If you're busy like I am, then you know that we just don't have time to be sick.  Business meetings, clients, work orders, exercise class, and other must-show-up events all clamor for our attention daily.

Even When There Are No Customers, Produce!

You all know that I am a big proponent of work-life balance.  Your health and overall well-being are very important to me, but there is even balance to be brought to the message of "don't overwork yourselves."  That balance is "Let's not let too much time be idle."  Even when customers and clients aren't calling, still find yourself being productive.  That productivity keeps you engaged and excited about your work.

In any business there will be lulls and slow times.

Prepare Now to Succeed in the New Year

If you're like me, you are looking at the calendar and wondering, "Where did they year go?  How are we already preparing for the holidays?" 
But, preparing for the holidays is not all that should be on your mind.  You should be preparing now for positive changes in order to succeed in the new year.  

May I suggest that waiting until January 1 to make New Year resolutions is a bit late.  You need to get a going on those things right now and I want to help you get started.

Multitasking: Blessing or Curse?

We are busier now than ever before- no doubt.  There are multiple things asking for, if not demanding our attention at the same time.  Many people have been forced to become multitaskers, for better of for worse.

We women tend to pride ourselves on being able to juggle a variety of tasks at once: Negotiating a deal on the cell phone, in the supermarket, with a baby in the basket!  It's enough to make anyone say, "That's amazing!  I truly don't know how you do it all!
