Inherent Conflict between Career Clock & Biological Clock

Don’t miss this brilliantly honest interview of PepsiCo’s chair and CEO, Indra Nooyi, age 58, where she adds her experienced voice about the inherent conflict between the career and biological clocks, and, therefore, reminds us that “having it all” does not exist. “I don’t think women can have it all.  I just don’t think so.

Unapologetic Prioritizing

Unapologetic Prioritizing

People who have their priorities straight and who live according to their priorities inspire me.  It’s not an easy congruency to achieve (as I previously shared in Prioritizing Amidst Flexibility).  Even more inspiring to me—those who are able to unapologetically live according to their priorities.  The New York Times parenting blog published an article last […]

Wonder Woman Myth Debunked

Wonder Woman Myth Debunked

I have this theory about so-called super humans or wonder women.  I suspect that some may indeed have extraordinary energy, drive and brilliance.  However, the often less shared part of these extraordinarily accomplished and accomplishing women is that they usually have great resources and teams of people, at their disposal, to execute everything from the […]

Prioritizing Amidst Flexibility

Prioritizing Amidst Flexibility

“Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe This week’s Wixii™-ism was a great reminder for me.  I am wearing several hats these days, and while a flexible schedule has been one of the keys to making it all work, it has become […]

Free Agent: Mom Seeking Control and Flexibility

Free Agent: Mom Seeking Control & Flexibility

What does it mean to be a “free agent”?  We love this Wixii™ term because to us, it describes someone who is independent and thus has individual control and flexibility to create the work-life mix that s/he wants.  Being a free agent is a route that many choose to find their survival+ mode.  And, as […]

We Will Work Around Your Mommy Duties

I have come to learn that when you encounter people who truly care about and support you—hold on to them.  This people are few and far between, but when you find them, do what it takes to keep them on your team. Recently, I have taken on a new role with Campbell Law Group, as […]

Giving Ourselves Permission to Wing It

Before kids, I had pictures in my mind of what life would look like when I was a mom.  Today, 11 years into life with our three sons, the reality barely resembles those now warm, fuzzy mental images.  Our life is enriching and loving on the whole, yet at times it is so full of […]

Survival+: A baseline for “THRIVING”

I am in the thick of it—in survival mode.  This is what I am told by seasoned parents who are beyond the infant and toddler stages of parenting.  It helps to have their perspective.  But, it does not necessarily make the daily realities any less stressful. When I embarked on the venture of Women in […]

A Husband & Father’s Perspective on Lean In

Guest Post by Nicole’s brother -in-law David Seawell: “Sheryl Sandberg is a giant in our house. My wife and I first became aware of her from her TED talk when it was posted in late 2010. I’m a TED junkie and I made her sit and watch it with me. I haven’t read Lean In, but the TED […]

Leaning Away: In Anticipation of Motherhood

I have been wondering, how many other women have “leaned away” from full-fledged career ambition and toward a perceived “safer” path in anticipation of someday motherhood—before children were even on the radar? It is unlikely anyone would have ever pegged me for one of those women.  From high school on, I threw myself into an […]
