Rep. Jackie Speier Inspires at the Professional Business Women’s Conference

Rep. Jackie Speier Inspires at the Professional Business Women’s Conference

On Tuesday 3,100 women gathered at the Moscone Center in San Francisco for the Professional Business Women’s Conference. I was excited about the morning keynote speakers so I sucked it up, woke up early (for me), took what felt like the slowest-train-ever downtown. I skipped the long line at Starbucks (despite being a little bleary eyed) and rushed into Moscone. […]

How Professional Business Women of California are Setting A New Standard For Working Women

How Professional Business Women of California are Setting A New Standard For Working Women

This week, I attended The Professional Business Women of California yearly conference. With nearly 3300 attendees and several high profile speakers, I arrived with an empty mind, waiting to be filled with inspiration, direction and power. I hoped the women who have branded themselves to be our leaders would give me just what I needed in understanding how to tackle […]

Don’t Hit a Girl

Don’t Hit a Girl

A good friend of mine and I had a New York moment the other night, when we walked past a screaming fight between a young man and woman. Well, they weren’t just screaming — one guy was holding back the man so he wouldn’t hit the woman. And he did eventually push the woman, at which point she fell on […]

De-funding Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Make Economic or Moral Sense

De-funding Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Make Economic or Moral Sense

I’m fed-up with the inflammatory language surrounding abortion and women’s health issues.   I have no more patience with the “War on Women” crowd than I do with the people who stand outside women’s clinics shouting “baby killers.”   NONE OF YOU ARE ADVANCING THE DEBATE! Nor are you winning anyone over to your way of thinking. Instead, these folks are driving […]

Mother’s Day-

On this Mother’s Day! Here are a few reasons we can all be thankful to our mother’s on mother’s day. 1. She gave you birth. For those mothers out there that have felt the pains of childbirth and pregnancy. You are to be saluted. Possibly the biggest gift our mothers gave to us is LIFE 2. Your mother raised you. […]

Mothers Day

Mothers Day

I used to be the type of person who never told others what I wanted as gifts for my birthday or Mother’s Day. My husband would ask me what I wanted and I would politely reply, “Oh, nothing. Don’t worry about it; I don’t need anything.” It’s true that many of us don’t really NEED anything. We live in a […]

Osama bin Laden is Gone, Unfortunately not Forgotten

Osama bin Laden is Gone, Unfortunately not Forgotten

I can’t, and probably never will be able to, sing “America the Beautiful” without choking up. Nine and a half years ago I stood, hand in hand, with hundreds of strangers in a Catholic church in New York City as we wept while singing that song. I had long since “fallen away” from the church, but on September 14th, 2001 […]

Kate Middleton took the dream of every little girl and turned it into reality. She married a prince- and not just any prince, the prince of the most powerful royal family in the world, the man who would one day become king. Yes, she married him- Prince William. The wedding was watched by billions and the internet is all a […]

Earthquake Relief Fundraiser – Ganbatte Japan (Keep Going Japan)

Earthquake Relief Fundraiser – Ganbatte Japan (Keep Going Japan)

For the past few weeks, I have been working hard on a fundraiser for Tsunami devastated Japan- I have been saddened by the loss and destruction the Japanese people have had to face. I was even more bothered to hear about the children who have lost their entire families, have no care, no clothes, no food or milk.   I couldn’t […]

The “Race” to the Altar

The “Race” to the Altar

Now that royal wedding has finally happened, a prince married a mere commoner- to propel her into a path toward becoming queen, the question of differences within marriages came to my mind. In particular, I’m referring to the controversies that can arise when two people from completely different backgrounds choose to fight the norm and unite. One such union that […]

Calling all Canadian Women. Your Vote, Your Voice!

Calling all Canadian Women. Your Vote, Your Voice!

When you take the time to vote in this coming election (May 2, 2011), be mindful of your choice. It’s one thing to do your research and make an informed decision aligned with your values but it’s quite another to vote a certain way based on the opinions of your spouse, family and friends. Many of the women I know […]

Bigger is Better, or Less is More?

Bigger is Better, or Less is More?

American comedian Jerry Seinfeld was in England last week promoting an upcoming performance in the country. While appearing on a local morning television show, he was asked about the impending royal nuptials. Expecting the usual pleasantries, viewers were surprised to hear Seinfeld reply that he found the whole thing “absurd” and “a circus act”, lamenting all of the “fake outfits, […]

The Meaning of Wedding Traditions….and What to Watch for Friday

The Meaning of Wedding Traditions….and What to Watch for Friday

As Kate Middleton walks down the aisle on her father’s arm this Friday there are several wedding traditions which will seem familiar to all westerners (especially those from a Christian tradition) and some traditions that, well, aren’t really for us “commoners.” There are too many wedding traditions in western culture alone to mention all of them, but we shouldn’t adhere […]
