I want my body back – and I want to keep it. I want to be able to enjoy financial freedom without worrying about providing for another daycare, school, college education, etc. I want to travel again and for it to actually be fun.
In my early days practicing law, I’d be drowning in work. “How could they expect this of me?!,” I’d fume…
I am terrible at creative names for things. Despite business mentors telling me I needed a catchy name, the first 5-ish times I ran my group program, I called it “my group program.”
And even once I started using The Bright Method™, I still referred to the program as the group program.
BUT I’ve made the decision to go all in on The Bright Method™.

That line in a book by the wonderful @sophie_cousens stopped me in my tracks.
Stop telling women to rest because they “can’t pour from an empty cup” or because “they need to put their oxygen mask on first before helping others.”
Ah, performance review season. Let’s go over practical strategies to make your self-eval easier to write and BETTER.
How do you deal with the colleague who’s always quick to respond to your boss and seems to show you up?
We’ve all had them – the teammate who seems to always be on email/Teams/Slack and when a superior asks a question, they’re lightning fast at responding?
Here’s a great, simple trick a friend shared with me for sharing the joys of admin stuff at work.
As you likely know all too well, women often get saddled with more than their fair share of the admin work at work. Things like taking notes, scheduling meetings, planning events, etc.

Realistic time management designed for professional working women
I'm a former big law attorney who got overwhelmed as a first year and slowly pieced together a time/task management system that actually reduced my stressed, helped me stay on top of it all (and know it), feel confident drawing boundaries, and soak in time with my family and friends. I'd love to get you there, too.
