Recently, I was interviewed for an article in the Ladders about career goals you should meet by ages 30, 40, and 50. Here are some of my tips:
30s: Build your online network and grow your professional stature. Pay off debt and open a 401K.
40s: Get advanced certifications and enroll in executive management programs to enhance your value-add to companies. Continue contributing to your retirement plan.
50s: Achieve more work-life balance, and maintain a happy place of balance of accomplishment and planning your retirement timeline.

Life is all about the power of #positive thinking.
When someone tells me they lost their job, I tell them they just gained a new opportunity. It is the opportunity to go out there and rediscover yourself. You also have the opportunity to find something that you are even more passionate about doing.
When one door closes, better ones will open. Believe it.

Today is my 2-year wedding anniversary.
One of the most pressing questions I had just before I got married was whether or not I was going to change my last name. I was confounded.
Growing up, I hated my last name (pronounced wee-ner), and couldn’t wait to get married to change it. Of course, that was assuming I got married in my twenties. In actuality, I got married at 38, and by that point, I had an established legal career for more than a decade. I was also published in more than 30 major media outlets (today that number is over 60), and had made a name for myself as a well-known writer.
I decided ultimately not to change my last name, and wrote my personal story about it in the HuffPost.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the moms out there. A big wish to my #mom who has made her life’s work to be there for me in every possible way — from making sure I always did my homework, to being there for constant support and advice, to discovering my talent for writing, and even nicknaming me The Writing Guru®. I share my mom’s ambition, work ethic, passion for success, and love for family. I am truly blessed to have such a strong inspiration in my life. 💐💕#MothersDay
Today marks 15 years since I graduated law school from Stetson University College of Law.
My law degree has opened so many doors for me in the business world. Time moves pretty fast, and there is no time like the present to go after what you want in your life and career.
As I wrap up two articles for Inc. Magazine today for an exciting new project, I thought about this important fact: it took me 12 years to accept that I was meant to do something else other than practice law. Don’t be afraid if you are still searching for what you want to be when you grow up. ✨ #wednesdaywisdom
"As someone who spent nearly 12 years unhappy in my role as an attorney, I know first-hand how it can take a grave toll on other aspects of your life - -losing motivation to workout and becoming distant from family and friends." - quoted in Ladders
I spill the beans in this article on the ways to approach your boss when you're unhappy at work.

Happy Monday! ☕️✨
