Meeting Life’s Challenge’s as Growth Opportunities

Life is full of challenges. Some don’t require much effort while others seem like ominous, impossible circumstances that linger quite some time, until we figure them out… if we figure them out.

My biggest challenge in life has been growing up as a transgender woman in a world that doesn’t understand what “transgender” means. It’s been a series of challenges really, all stemming from being transgender (or perceived “different”) in today’s cultural and social climate.

Living Words of Wisdom

Look out for Cove’s special feature monthly “Because You’re Worth It”.  Women are often care-takers in their homes with responsibilities pertaining to their husbands, children, and pets. At the end of the day, women need to take time out for themselves and focus on their well-being. Often, women do not do this. Cove prides herself in being able to share a bit of herself with others and to help guide them on a wellness journey to overall health.

Self-Publishing: Lets Women Break Book Industry’s Glass Ceiling

Virginia Woolf, a groundbreaking author and her own publisher, may have put it best when she declared that “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” In so few words, she summarized the host of challenges facing female writers. 

Many of the issues related to publishing in the days of Virginia Woolf persist. She herself was a self-published author.

We may have made some great strides since then in voting and political rights but, as the wage gap shows, we still have some way to go in publishing.

COVER STORIES, REGULARS, SENIOR LIFE

It Gets Better With Age

Assuming we are lucky enough to possess good health and safety, we will all become “senior citizens” (or as I prefer “senior adults”) in our lifetime.  What that means to each of us varies greatly depending on our own health, financial situation, family, personality, culture and many other factors that affect attitude and ability to create the life we desire as we age.

Empowered by a New Freedom

Most working mothers have asked themselves the same question I did after the birth of my sec-ond daughter in June of 2013: “Do I go back to work?” Luckily, my decision was made for me.  I was laid off from my corporate job at Bausch + Lomb after their acquisition by Valeant Pharma-ceutical International–just one day after my maternity leave ended.

How Social Media Gets Your Business Results

Is social media worth it? It’s an important question for a business owner to ask, because many businesses don’t even measure social media’s return on investment. They don’t measure social media at all.

Every tool and human effort your business is involved with should be held accountable in some way. Social media is a tool – a powerful one for your business. Like all tools – if it’s used correctly it can build empires. Conversely, if it’s used incorrectly it can destroy them or not build a solid foundation for your empire. Social media is also not about cat videos and motivational quotes – there’s a time and place for everything; just not every 3rd post on your profile or company page.

Humanizing The Badge: Meet Ithaca Police Officer Mike Meskil

“Ithaca is gorges” or so goes the familiar slogan spotted on proud t-shirts across New York State.  Situated on the shores of Cayuga Lake, the largest of the Finger Lakes, the gorges, snow covered hills, vineyards, and waterfalls of Ithaca make for a picture perfect postcard.  It has also been named one of the best colleges in the country, home to Cornell University and Ithaca College. It’s behind the walls of the Ivy League University where Officer Mike Meskill started his career in law enforcement in 2012.

As we start 2017, unique looks with velvet, sequins, fur and even chokers are hitting the pages of all the top fashion magazines! Talk about Glam!!

This season I am in love with the Velvet thigh-high boots in various heel lengths for everyone from the Kardashians to my next-door neighbor. With versatility, this boot can be dressed up with a simple mini dress or completely dressed down, over some jeans. Add a t-shirt and your choice of jacket and you have a hot ensemble. These boots can be found online at various price points and in an array of fabulous colors, or sometimes you might be able to score them from a local thrift store.
