Should You Tell Your Boss You Are Pregnant?
by Alexandra Levit - Jun, 2011
I recently had my second child, and so lately I’ve been a bit more active on birth boards, or online discussion forums related to pregnancy, childbirth, and child rearing. One question that pops up all the time on these boards is: “should I tell my boss I am pregnant, and if so, when?” I’m not going to beat around the bush on this one.

Women don’t know their value in the marketplace
by John Crant - Jun, 2011
As a woman, it is extremely important to know your self-worth, especially in your career. Here is a great article in I recently read in Time Magazine about how women are still earning less than men, The 100% Solution.
