I take gift giving seriously, so I do a lot of research to make sure that what I give will be cherished.  The only problem with this approach is in the process I find things I want. I would love to tell you that all I want is world peace, but the reality is I’m […]

My mom decided to part with some family photos and other keepsakes.  She carefully divided them between the three of us, but my eldest sister’s pile seemed slightly bigger than mine.  Much to my mother’s dismay, I am a true middle child and as such have the uncanny ability to recognize even the slightest hint of unfairness. When […]

No matter how hard I try, there is a pile of paperwork I just can’t seem to eliminate. What’s in the pile? Oh, well, that changes. I wish I could tell you that today’s pile includes exciting party invitations and travel plans, but sadly, it does not. Today, my paperwork (and life) are not very glamorous, there is a contract to […]

When I started See Jane Work, in 2004, it was out of necessity.  I could not find office supplies that were functional and stylish.  A lot has changed since then (you can thank me later), computers are tiny, desk accessories are stylish, even my desk lamp has a good looking cord. Unfortunately, there are still a few […]

In high school and college, group projects were the bane of my existence. Even worse than being assigned a group project was being assigned to a specific group. I often ended up with teammates who would rather master a keg stand than statistical analysis. As it turns out, group projects, along with messy siblings and […]

“I hold this as a rule of life: too much of anything is bad.” Terrence McKenna was definitely NOT referring to meetings when he made this statement.  Regardless, it sums up exactly how I feel about meetings. I have earned a reputation for being a meeting dodger, it’s because I tend to over correct.  After […]

Throughout this highly engaging two-day gathering, participants came together with numerous other accomplished women in an incredibly inspiring atmosphere. They gain a new understanding and appreciation of tools they can use to become even more successful as they transition throughout the course of their personal and professional lives.

You would be shocked to know that although I’m considered an Organizing Expert, my office is not always neat and tidy.  We all know being organized is important, but it isn’t always easy! In a recent survey, commissioned by Post-it® Brand (my finance background is coming out…here come the numbers), 66% of office workers reported […]

Spring Cleaning used to be so easy…..now hold on a minute, before you come after me with your brooms and pitchforks, hear me out. The spring cleaning of the 1950’s may have been physically demanding, but today’s spring cleaning is mentally exhausting. The benefit gained from washing machines, vacuum cleaners and steam mops, has been quickly […]

Theresa is one of those women that other women love to hate.  (On a side note, I don’t recommend hating, it’s not a good look.) She is incredibly fun, hard-working, talented and stylish. This mother of four boys, 2 dogs and 2 cats also runs a successful business from an envy-inducing home office. I pride […]
