What to do When Things Fall Apart?

April 13th, 2009

What Is It Like When Things Fall Apart? Just in the past few months, as our worldwide economy is falling apart, I am witnessing an increase in the number of women who feel their own personal lives are falling apart. They are experiencing not only the usual drain of chronic health issues and conflict-filled relationships but the onslaught on unexpected stressors—being fired or laid off from jobs, the sudden tragic deaths of loved ones, and loss of their homes. None of these events have quick fixes and, indeed, many have no “fix” at all. There is no starting a career over in your sixties when... Read More

Sticking With Your Dreams

March 12th, 2009

…by Prill Boyle If you\’re like many Americans, you\’ve already given up on your New Year\’s resolutions. Research shows that 80 percent of people who pledge in January to change their behavior have lost heart by Valentine\’s Day. According to clinical psychologist Dr. Marion Jacobs, author of Take-Charge Living: How to Recast Your Role in Life…One Scene at a Time, part of the problem is that our brains don\’t believe we\’re serious about changing until they see some proof. So whether you have a resolution you haven\’t kept or a dream you haven\’t... Read More

10 Mindsets Web Entrepreneurs Must Have To Succeed

March 12th, 2009

Entrepreneurship is a dynamic process of creating incremental wealth. Entrepreneurs willingly take part in the process of creating something new that has value by devoting time and effort and assuming the financial, psychic, and social risks. Luckily, we, as entrepreneurs, also receive the resulting rewards of independence, monetary profits from our endeavors, and the personal satisfaction of creating something viable. As the president and founder of the Association of Web Entrepreneurs and the National Association of Women Writers, I have had the pleasure of networking with, collaborating with,... Read More

Accomplishing Your Dreams Requires ACTION

February 13th, 2009

What\’s Your Programming “There is an undeniable link between your programming, the core beliefs that programming creates, the vision you develop for yourself, and the results you create.” – Randy Gage I love the quote above because the last two points really focus on the action you must take to accomplish your dreams and live passionately. We all have the same three elements to work with in order to fulfill our business dreams. We have to work with time, money, and expertise. Since we won\’t often have these at the beginning of our journey, we often have to leverage... Read More

From Setbacks To Stepping Stones

February 13th, 2009

…by Prill Boyle The daughter of a friend of mine was rejected last week from both her first and second-choice law schools. She was wait-listed from the third and hasn\’t heard yet from the fourth. Understandably, she was demoralized. She\’d been dreaming of living in Chicago next year and eventually, law degree in hand, working for the FBI. Her dad asked me to give her a call, so I did. First, I commiserated. Then I tried to buoy her with platitudes. (“When one door closes, another opens,” I said.) But I have to admit that other than assuring her that she\’s loved... Read More

My Favorite Entrepreneurial Tool – Deciding My SWOT

December 12th, 2008

As the owner of four online companies, my job is to sit down every year and decide my SWOT for the next 12 months and then to consistently revisit my SWOT throughout each year and tweak as needed. I base my decisions on my experience and the emerging trends in the industries I serve. I also network, engage in learning with mentors, and a lot of the time I simply go left when everyone else goes right. I am a rebel that way and it works simply because it helps my companies stand out in a crowded marketplace. SWOT is my favorite tool to help me understand at the strategic level how to go left when... Read More

Taking Your Time

December 12th, 2008

…by Prill Boyle “Sixty should be the time to start something new, not put your feet up,” British novelist Mary Wesley (1912-2002) once quipped. Following her own advice, she published her first book in her 70s. Over the next 20 years she wrote nine more, eventually selling upward of 3 million copies. Wesley\’s success, however, was far from sudden. A classic late bloomer, she spent most of her adult life attempting without success to establish herself as a writer. As journalist Rebecca Seal notes in a review of Wesley\’s official biography, “It was almost as... Read More

What are the Top Five Issues that Impact Mental Health for Boomer Women?

December 11th, 2008

Number One Issue – Changing Health One would think menopause would be the priority concern. It\’s not. Even with the change in medical advice in the past 5-6 years to avoid Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), the women I see seem to adjust with little complaint to the hormonal and cognitive (memory) changes that accompany menopause. Their most difficult adjustments are to chronic illnesses that begin to surface as they enter their Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies. Top on the list is Type 2 Diabetes. With the tremendous obesity crisis that faces our nation, more and more women, even without... Read More
