Work/Life Balance Essentials
Concrete steps to contentment
  
A colleague once told me a very telling statement concerning his boss, his wife, his co-workers, his children, his friends all the major players in his life, "If they are all mad at me a little bit, then I am doing all right." The message: there's not enough of him to keep everyone satisfied in his life. Is work/life balance a myth? No! It is possible to survive and thrive in the world of work, and to balance work performance with personal development and quality of life. We will explore the history of work and its role in our culture, how to improve our balance at work, and how to take steps to bring balance to our lives. Participants will Review their current work/life balance ratio Explore the history and purpose of work in our culture Examine why we reversed a 150-year trend of working less and less hours per week Explore why we choose materialism over relationships Identify practical steps to restore balance at work and in life

Gossip to Gospel
Chronicling Social History
  
As a veteran Wash DC gossip columnist and a regular dishing with Joan Rivers on camera, I like to think of my role as chronicling history. The word "gossip" is not always negative. What often starts as speculation soon becomes gospel and history headlines. Think Watergate, Donald Trump's presidential campaign, Hillary's private emails, It's often the real story before the spin docs are called in. I chronicle in current time the tangled webs between DC, NY and Hollywood. My presentation is candid and interactive. Always fresh and current. I reveal the back story on current topics from politics to entertainment with lots of first hand amusing but never vicious anecdotes. I talk about why people gossip with colorful current examples. I adapt the talk to each audience.
