The world is expanding its view on women; how we think, how we work, who we are, and the great value we contribute to this earth.
However, there are still so many of us that aren't clear about our role, how we make a difference, what we can do, and who is listening. Women receive conflicting messages and ideas about our contribution.
Are you a woman who has it all? Are you doing what you love and getting recognized for it?
Do you have a super career, outstanding personal relationships, and feel healthy and confident?
If you do, congratulations! If you don't, no need to worry because there is a way to influence what you deserve. The good news is you have the potential to make it happen.
Getting what you deserve requires more than simply wishing for it. You have to get serious about wanting it, planning what to do and seeing it through.

What do Valentine's Day, Christmas, dating, dinner and a movie, marriage and couples have in common? Rituals
A ritual is defined as 'any method of doing something in which the details are always faithfully repeated.' To relate this to your life, rituals include: the time you wake up, how your brush your teeth, the route you take to work - you get the idea. Rituals give life meaning and help us celebrate milestones in our lives. They offer security, stability and routine and a sense of calmness to an otherwise chaotic existence.
Rituals date back thousands of years with the ancient Egyptians. Theirs was a culture seeped in traditions. Eating, drinking, bathing, hunting and burying the dead were a succession of rituals.
Find out how 10 key secrets can save you time, money and your sanity during this busy time of year
You're in business, you're busy - maybe a little overwhelmed. Throw in a big measuring of Christmas, a dash of nasty business habits, time wasters, bad budgets and you have a recipe for disaster. Find out how 10 key secrets can save you time, money and your sanity during this busy time of year. Heck, you might even enjoy Christmas this year. Try this:
1. Nix Bad Personal Habits
Unwanted habits detract from life enjoyment. This includes: abusing our bodies, ignoring family and friends, working too hard. We need to have enough awareness to overcome these habits that cut into both personal and work time. This means less sugary treats, getting more sleep, watching the work hours and so forth.
2. Nix Bad Business Habits
These include not networking properly - not following up properly with people. Bad business habits also include: reinventing the wheel, not being resistant to change, not being open to lifelong learning, not planning properly, berating the competition and more. This can extend to Christmas where you do more networking, find yourself up against the competition, and need to prepare for the upcoming year.
