The Top Female Entrepreneurs in Business Today

The Top Female Entrepreneurs in Business Today

Entrepreneurship was traditionally seen as a man’s game, but today that is changing. As I get ready to launch HADRY in 48 hours and become a startup entrepreneur again, I thought I would bring you another info-graphic this week.

Discover these women who are shattering the glass ceiling by becoming their own bosses, advancing science and technology, and changing the face of business forever. This info-graphic showcases some of the world’s most successful businesswomen, while looking at the case for female entrepreneurship globally.

I always enjoy reading about women who are trailblazing in their own fields, and derive inspiration for my own projects. I hope you enjoy the read below.

The Woman’s Toolbox - The Power of “What If?”

The Woman’s Toolbox – The Power of “What If?”

I am a big believer that every woman needs their own toolbox. I’m not talking about the metal kind that most men have in their garage. I’m talking about a skill tool box that we keep at our side to help us do our jobs and tackle challenges that we face in our careers and lives. Women need different tools than men to be successful, but once we recognize what these tools are and put them in our toolbox, the sky is the limit on what we can accomplish.

As a Human Resources Executive and business leader for over twenty years, I have had the unique experience to watch and help women navigate career decisions and personal challenges both in and out of the office. Through this great experience and my own journey of trial and error, I have learned what tools women need in their toolbox and when to use them.

One of the most important tools we can have in our tool box, but sometimes forget to use, is the Power of “What if?” It’s understandable, as life gets busy, and balancing careers, motherhood and families is a tough job that takes all, or most of our energy every week. But, what if we took a few minutes once in a while to ask ourselves “What if?” when we were navigating through career and personal decisions that have a direct impact on our success and happiness?

5 Self-Care Tips for Fall Abundance

For those of us who live in a northern climate, we need only to look outside our windows to witness the season’s transformational energies. The chill in the night’s air, the reduced amount of daylight, and the colorful falling leaves indicate that the fall season is upon us.

With the start of the school year and all its demands, work-related stressors, football season get-togethers, Thanksgiving celebrations, Halloween treats, and the onset of the cold and flu season, healthy lifestyle choices can become quite a challenge.

Here are 5 self-care tips designed to help keep you well over the autumn months. Please keep in mind that change requires motivation, discipline, commitment and effort. It is important to ask yourself; Does this particular strategy feel natural and fit with my personality? Baby steps will allow you to sustain all the new changes in a few weeks from now. And just maybe on New Year’s Eve 2015 you won’t need to make resolutions and promises because, what better time than fall to create healthy habits for the upcoming holiday and winter season?

Infidelity: The Cold Hard Truth About Cheating

My name is Shawn Evans, and I am the co-owner Can’t We Just Get Along Counselling. We specialize in couples counselling, family therapy, affair recovery and other types of personal and family therapy. I produced this info-graphic outlining the truth about infidelity. The recent news of the Ashley Madison website hack encouraged me to research the real reasons behind infidelity.

The info-graphic outlines how many people cheat, why they cheat, and how couples can recover from infidelity. It was very interesting to discover that 56% of men and 34% of women who cheat rate their marriage as happy or very happy, which makes the reason people cheat a little harder to understand.

It is difficult to recover from infidelity, and there are certain steps that both the betrayed spouse and the unfaithful spouse need to take if they want to repair their relationship.

#ThrowbackThursday: The Timeline Project

#ThrowbackThursday: The Timeline Project

#ThrowbackThursday to #Blogher14. I just stumbled upon my the #TimelineProject photo I took last year. The Timeline Project was all about declaring your dreams and goals to the world (or just yourself), physically writing them down, and then keeping the photo visible to constantly stay motivated.

But sometimes we experience setbacks or slowdowns.

I’m 40 1/2 (not 39 3/4), and still haven’t launched yet. But it hasn’t stopped me from working and going and doing. I almost see the finish line (or shall I stay, the ‘starting from scratch’ line).

The point of today’s post? Don’t let setbacks throw you completely off course. Embrace the setback, honor the setback, and then get back on the horse and keep trucking. No one says you have to abandon your dreams just because your #TimelineProject is a little off.

Should Stay-at-Home Moms Demand A Postnup?

Should Stay-at-Home Moms Demand A Postnup?

Postnuptial agreements – they’re all the rage!

Just kidding, no they’re not.

We’ve all heard of the prenup.

But what about the postnup?

Yes, that is what some lawyers are recommending for spouses who put their careers on hold to have their children.

Prenuptial agreements have become so common among the 1 percent they are considered practically a given. But postnuptial agreements, those negotiated after a marriage has already taken place, are still rarities and an object of curiosity for much of the population. According to experts, however, their popularity is growing. In a 2012 survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 51 percent of divorce attorneys cited a rise in postnuptial agreements during the past three years. Perhaps an even more interesting number is the 36 percent of attorneys who noted an increase in wives initiating the requests.
