Good Morning! I hope you had a wonderful week, and are ready to take some time for yourself this morning, to reset. I recently shot you a quick video to watch, sharing my thoughts on the value of taking time to pause, pull back, and recenter. As the holiday season rapidly approaches, we could all use this simple reminder.

Blended families & balancing it all.
Parenting in itself, is quite the undertaking. Raising little humans is nothing to take lightly, and offers its own levels and layers of complexity.
Now mix in children of different ages… from different parents… and parenting can become an entirely different ball game.
Taking your time back.
More than ever, we are challenged with juggling responsibilities and overlapping priorities both at home and with our workplace. Feeling overwhelmed with managing your time? Check out this video.
to Win Your Week
Ever heard of single-tasking? In short, it's the opposite of multitasking. In our busy lives and jobs, sometimes it feels like a hundred tasks are coming at you at once. For deep, focused work, try single-tasking.
Focus on one thing at a time. Turn your phone over with the screen down, close your web browser, turn off all those notifications. When you feel a pull to switch to a different task or check that inbox, stop. Pause, breathe, and refocus on the task at hand.
Featuring impactful females who have an inspiring story to tell about the other side of life.
Did you hear about what Founder & CEO of Spanx, Sarah Blakely, did last week?
When announcing that she had sold a majority stake in Spanx to Blackstone (valuing Spanx at $1.2billion) she also did something super special for her employees. She decided to surprise them all with the generous gift of two first-class airline tickets to anywhere in the world, and $10,000 in cash for the trip. In the spirit of slowing down, and valuing time spent with family and loved ones - we commend Sarah for not only being an inspirational female leader, but for taking the time to truly step back and thank her team in an above and beyond fashion!
