I went under the knife again last week. It is amazing that once you’ve made the decision to do something how unprepared you tend to be.

As an improv instructor, I stress the importance of putting yourself in (safe!) stressful situations as it has been scientifically proven to be healthy for you.

A friend of mine posted a video message from entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk called, “So you turned 50.” That number is looming in front of me and like many people I’m dreading it, fighting it, and looking at every birthday as yet another moment closer to lamenting all the “should haves” and “could haves” in my […]

Have you ever had someone ask you for advice? This has happened to me a lot: dating advice, job advice, financial advice, child rearing advice, acting advice, beauty tips, diet tips, and the list goes on.

I am contemplating moving to Vancouver, British Columbia. It was originally Los Angeles, California, but the thought of giving up Canadian residency and moving four young children to the United States scares the hell out of me.

Pascal’s “Fire” and Kids with Fevers

by: in Humour in Life and Business

I kept three of my four children home from school with fevers and coughing, thinking “Wow, I’m such a great mom, the kids get rest and I’m a hero because I didn’t send them off to infect other children.” Big mistake! By the end of the day, I had started coughing and I crawled into […]
