An excerpt from the book...

The ability to advance your professional goals while maintaining your authenticity is an invaluable skill... Most people can walk into another's office, find out that they both play golf, and form a connection. Your goal is to walk into another's office, find out that you both hate how you look in golf shorts, and form a bond.

Don't waste another minute of your life focusing on your big butt! Embrace your vulnerabilities and conquer your dreams. This book will not tell you how to get rid of your big butt. It is not a weight loss book. It won't push you to act like your male counterparts so you can be successful. This book will teach you how to achieve success just by being yourself — big butt and all!

It’s not the new 40.  It’s not middle age.  We can “look great for 60” but not great for youth.

We assiduously seek distractions to thwart the reality of our aging mind and body from penetrating our awareness.  But it’s there.  Senses have slowly diminished, wrinkles have rapidly appeared.  We try to camouflage the signs to no avail, as our hands, eyes, and memories defiantly persist in revealing the truth. 

And the truth is that we are no longer, and will never be, edgy, trendy, or new. 

And so we look for purpose, confirmation, validation– anything to help dilute our biggest fear— marginalization.

Yes, we acknowledge the gifts of maturity, wisdom, understanding, and insight. We are grateful that we are here to experience the sixties, the seventies, and pray for the eighties, nineties, and more. 

Nevertheless, we have earned the right to grieve for what is gone, what is lost.  The past is known, quantifiable.  But, what is to come?  We can only imagine, speculate, hope, and fear.  #60@realwomenwin

I can’t wait for it to start!!! 

I find it so depressing to hear young girls express disdain for their bodies.  There is something wrong with the messages we are communicating to these impressionable children.  #bereal 



Lately I’ve heard too much of what people think I am. People from work, people from my past. I’ve heard enough. Their perception can be their opinion however I’m done with hearing it and I may just tell them so…the next time it starts

Words to live by!!

Empowering women, through words and actions

I’m honored to speak at the Jewish Federation of Southern New Jersey’s Young Women’s Division brunch Wednesday morning, not only for the chance to tell my story, but to help others write their own.

Your ticket will buy a fabulous brunch, a chance to network with some amazing young minds. In addition, we welcome you to bring gently used items such as handbags and jewelry, which will be donated to Career Wardrobe, which helps women obtain clothing, career skills and the confidence necessary to transition to work.
