B”H Recently, I told a life coach what I aim to achieve professionally in 2019. I figured she would ask me to write down all my goals and break them into details. To my surprise, she said, “No, first I want you to write down all the things you will say ‘No’ to over the course of the year.” Quickly and proudly, I shared with her all the different
B”H I’m sure many of you are familiar with the recent research in the financial services industry which shows women to be better investors than men. On aggregate, women still invest less than men, but apparently when we do invest, we fare better.

B”H Many of you have asked about my reading list. So let’s see if I can do a monthly share. Here’s what I read in January. Off the Clock: Fell Less Busy While Getting More Done Off the Clock makes a great point of why it’s important to carve out moments where we feel like we’re “off the clock” and how to realistically do that, while still getting things done!
B”H This blog post is long overdue. My second daughter had her 9th birthday back in November and it was such a nice event. Birthdays around here are a big production in many ways.

Then it dawned on me that I’ve never showed you the brisket recipe that

B”H Chodesh Tov! It’s Rosh Chodesh Elul – the last month of our spiritual fiscal year! Following the advice of a friend, I recently did a time audit, and I loved the process. I logged what I did every 15 minutes of my 168 hour week! I did this for 2 weeks. It’s super revealing! After you’ve logged your time, you look at the blocks of time by category and
B”H You may know that once upon a time I worked on Wall Street. Recently, when I was asked to write a #jewishparenting article for a magazine, this is what came from my heart. I hope you find these Jewish Parenting Principles helpful… Fully equipped with an MBA, zero babysitting experience and my mother’s 1976 copy of Dr. Spock, which she had diligently applied on her only child (me), I
