Read more

We at Maxwell’s Playbook are so thrilled about the first season of our Brunch Series!  Together with a fierce community of women, we have covered topics and experiences that made us all stronger.  We kicked things off last September with our first speaker and uber GF, Tonya Sharpe of Live Nation, who talked about the […]

Teens Urged to Save for Retirement 

This isn’t fake news. You read that right. Saving anything at any age is better than not saving at all. However retirement professionals say that even babysitting money can be used to start a retirement account. We already know that the traditional three-legged stool – pension, Social Security and savings – will not continue to […]

A Year of Saying “Yes” – How it turned out

Read more

I am very much a creature of habit, primarily because as a working woman, wife, mom and other-things-in-chief, structure is needed to get everything done.  Sometimes this is good because you stay on track and accomplish those things on your to-do list. However, at other times it can be terribly limiting. Things that conflict with […]

Turning a Winter Weather Blast into a Stay-cation

Read more

It’s that time when every local broadcast begins with a “winter weather alert”. Last year our area got 30 inches of snow in a huge blizzard that pummeled the east coast.  Note that we typically get this kind of snow only once every five or so years (if we’re lucky). Of course, everyone was wringing their […]

Speaking of Mistakes, Let’s Talk…

I don’t like making mistakes, much less talking about them. You know that feeling you get when you put the wrong salary in an offer letter to a new employee, they accept, and now you have to figure out how to correct that? Like most people, I’d rather be able to sweep that away and […]

What to Wear When You’re Working from Home

Read more

When I’m home – even without plans – I like to dress so I can welcome whatever the day may bring. For me it creates an optimistic mindset that helps me get things accomplished. I feel good, and I like being prepared to welcome anyone who might drop by.  This doesn’t mean that I’m wearing heels and super-tailored clothing.  But I skip the ragged t-shirt […]

The holidays are coming (yup, already saw an ad for Christmas pillows from Joss & Main) so put this on your list: a custom handbag by 1 Atelier designed by you.  First, choose a style ranging from clutches, hobos, satchel, wristlets and more. Then select the material – from exquisite leather to exotic snakes or crocodile  — the color, accents, […]

Popsugar for Fitness

I love Popsugar.  With such a sweet name, how can you not? But here’s why it’s one of the best newsletters that I receive. Every morning I get an email with fitness and/or nutrition tips that are easy to manage and make me feel good about doing something that’s healthy for me. There’s tons of information out there that sounds good but can […]
