888Ladies Treats You Like Bingo Royalty

Categories // AWR Guest Blogs

Bingo 888 ladiesAnyone for Bingo? You bet!

My ex mother-in-law played bingo all the time, and loved it. When she couldn’t go out to play anymore, she played via the TV. Still loved it.

I play it too – with my Mom at the care facility in which she lives.

It’s a great pastime and something virtually anyone from eight to 88+ can master.

10 Rules For Amazing & Brilliant Women

Categories // Lists & Lessons, AWR Guest Blogs

tara-mohr.jpgGuest blog post by Tara Mohr.

I coach brilliant women, lots of them. Dedicated, talented, brilliant women.
 
Most of the time, they don’t know their brilliance. They are certain they “aren’t ready” to take on that next bigger role. They are more attuned to the ways they aren’t qualified than to the ways that they are. They are waiting for someone to validate, promote or discover them. Sound familiar?

Poetry: The Mammogram by Julia Napier

Categories // AWR Guest Blogs

pink_bra_top.jpgBy Julia Napier ©

For years and years they told me,
Be careful of your breasts.
Don't ever squeeze or bruise them.
And give them monthly tests.

So I heeded all their warnings,
And protected them by law.
Guarded them very carefully,
And I always wore my bra.
