In my house, I'm the glue that holds the family together. I do not mean this in a prideful way because I would love to give someone else this title, at times, just so I can breathe. I have to remember, I am used to this role. I'm built for this role with almost all of my working career being in a management role, but some days I want to scream. After my 12-year stint in management in radio, I went back to work the newsroom briefly, taking on the role of an assignments manager. This manager is the brain of a newsroom and gets pulled in many directions, daily. Assignment editors work in a newspaper office, or radio and TV...
Summer Is Almost Over, Are You Ready? Heading back to school means new chaos, new schedules, earlier bedtimes, new homework, new friends, new beginnings. Back to school shopping and uniform purchases, completing summer reading, and keeping your fingers crossed that your kiddos didn’t spend so much time having fun and unexpectedly mushed their academic brains. While this next chapter can be exciting, it is certainly a time of transitions, and you’re probably hyper focused on prepping your little ones with encouragement, expectations, and enthusiasm. But inside of your head, if you’re anything like me, you’re also in need of your own affirmations, strength, and serenity. It's easy to fall into this next school year and, like other years before, unintentionally lose...
My Job Was Killing Me Some days I would rather walk on hot lava than go to work. Have you been there? Have you ever worked in a job that seems like you will never get anything right? How many times have you literally felt like your job was killing you? I loved my career, but my job was literally robbing me of my life and taking me from my family. That’s right, a place that will fill my position before the coroner ever reports my death to the state was killing me. Even before I set my alarm every night, my heart would race just thinking about the next workday. Then, I would snooze more times than I could count, and...

Mommy Deserves to Recharge

Most moms feel super guilty about needing “me time.” And when we do make the choice to take that break someone else will come along and add to that guilt.  I’m always amazed at the plethora of comments on my husband’s social media posts telling him how much he deserves a break and saluting him for being a dad. However, if I dare to say, “I am tired,” I’m usually met with “that’s what a mom does.” We have been conditioned to teach moms that they MUST burn both ends of the candle and be ok with it.  Especially if you’re a working mom … jobs expect 110% of you, kids need 200%, and a spouse wants 300%. At the...
I have been blessed throughout my career with bosses who value their team’s work, and then I’ve had bosses who weren’t so great. COVID-19 changed the world in many ways and showed businesses that quality work can be done remotely. Also, it has shown that working from home can cause employees to become content, unfortunately. My family owns a business so, I know the grind of improving your bottom line while maintaining your employees. It is difficult. Loyalty goes both ways, though. If you have an employee who goes above and beyond their job duties, you need to value that employee. Even if that employee does exactly what is expected of them and none extra, still value that employee. If...
