I Spoke This Dream Into Being

Alexia Career Advice, Happiness, Women in Business

Monday, March 17, 2014. It was just two weeks after I had begun my healing journey back from postpartum depression. While going on hormone replacement therapy a week earlier had enabled me to feel like I was close to being 100 percent back to me, the horrors of what I had felt, thought, and projected into the future were still …

Protect Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself

Alexia Career Advice, Financial

For business leaders, no matter how well-intentioned we are, there is a never ending stream of problems that have the potential to sink us.

My dad recently came for a visit, and during his stay we went out for many meals with my almost 6-month old daughter. While she is pretty chatty just like her mother, overall she fairs just fine. Actually, a little too fine. She loves flapping her big baby blues at whomever she sees. As a result, she is a magnet …

Alexia Communication, Culture, Uncategorized

Last minute appointment cancellations used to drive me bonkers. As a new mom, they now are my excuse for impromptu self-care. During one such incident last week when I was already on the road, I decided to use Yelp to identify the closest nail salon. Within 15 minutes my feet were soaking in a foot spa. The man performing my …
