You’ve got the New Year itch, right? You know what I’m talking about. The need to start over, refresh, purge all of the old stuff from last year that doesn’t work anymore or is weighing you down. Dump the junk, clear out the stuff, take off the pounds and whatever else is on your tick list for 2016. From your closet, to the trunk of your car, to your overloaded office or cluttered cubbie – you are ready to reduce and start new and lighter. “Less is more” becomes the mantra chant so you can handle more of your busy life juggle.

This is the typical psychological cycle of a New Year for many of us. So, here on the Newsladies, we’re going to capitalize on this momentum to help you succeed in achieving your goals and dreams by offering some sage guidance and practical tools to implement right now.

We start by getting down to business. Your business. Your professional life. And ladies you need help, especially when it comes to the work/life balance.

According to a recent survey by Forbes Magazine – 92% of working women feel overwhelmed by their professional and personal responsibilities. That’s quite a statement. And, by the way our men are struggling, too. Pew Research reports 56% of working men say they’re having a difficult time with the work/balance issue as they take on more Daddy duties and have their significant other juggling jobs and home life too.

Starting with a lighter plate is a good beginning. That means assessing what is working in your professional world, what isn’t and what you need to eliminate to start in a more productive direction.

Our fellow Newslady and Business Success Coach Daune Thompson ( has a great program to get you going. Listen to our radio podcast this week as Daune walks us through her Nuts and Bolts of Self Awareness program, teaching us how to start with some basic mental and physical house cleaning using her version of an X Box.

So women, start this new year with us and let’s get down to business!
