A Conscious Decision about Valuing Your Time

June 12, 2012

One of the lessons I learned when I finished my MBA is that people value things differently. I always knew this in some context, but I think it became more apparent when a new group of graduates go back out into the world. We all seemed to be starting new lives with a variety of […]

When Women Sacrifice for Balance

November 2, 2011

As a woman in her late 20s, I’m firmly seated on the Career Track: I got my undergraduate degree from a great school, I worked my way through three promotions in four years, I’m working at getting my MBA from another great school, and I have been keeping up my personal brand all the while. […]

Thinking Outside of Yourself

June 7, 2011

Since I’m interning for the summer in St. Louis, I’m staying with my parents. I’ve been living on my own for a while, so it’s been a little weird to have two more people sharing the same space as me. In fact, it feels like there’s a lot more going on. Here’s an example: I […]

September 20, 2010

Several fun things happened this week, even though I think I was even more busy than I have been since arriving at Tech. I wanted to share some of these because we always need a reminder of the little things in life that make us happy. I hope you take a moment to think back […]

If the Fates Allow

October 26, 2009

It’s that time of year again. My family has to negotiate the holiday schedule between four different locations. And this is just the five of us (parents, me, two brothers). None of the children are married yet, and extended family can’t always fit into the equation. We are officially a “see you at Christmas” kind […]

A Story of Change: Chapter 2 – Two Brothers

May 20, 2009

My brothers are twins and had been so in every sense of the word up until they were in high school. At that point, they really became two individuals on different paths to the future. Flash forward to the past couple of weeks, and you will see that the paths taken could not have been […]
