Just about everyone I meet wishes they had more balance in their lives. 


When I started speaking about improving work-life balance a few years ago, I realized that better balance won't happen until you're clear on why you want it. That's because focusing on the why will keep you motivated when you're struggling to develop new habits and break old ones.

So, when I mentor professional women and present Work-Life Balance Wisdom programs for companies and at conferences, one of the first things I ask is for them  to complete this sentence: "If I had more than enough time, energy and other resources, I would _____________."



Over the next few issues, I will offer simple work-life balance strategies you can apply right away. But, before I do, I would like you to write down some of your whys. If you cleaned out the clutter of unnecessary obligations and mastered a skill to be more efficient, what would you do with that extra time and energy? 

When I posed that question recently, the answers included:

  • Once a month "date nights" with my husband.
  • Sleep more!
  • Learn to play guitar.
  • Be more present with my kids.
  • Get in shape.
  • Reconnect with dear friends.
  • Travel for fun.

Share your whys on my 
Facebook Page or reply back to me. I love hearing from you!

LinkedIn Wisdom
Molloy Communications  
Way before I was a professional speaker, I was a marketing consultant. In fact, I started Molloy Communications when I was just a child back in 1988. 

While I focus mostly on speaking these days, there is one area of marketing I continue to do because it's so rewarding for me and in demand by professionals who want to get noticed. I audit LinkedIn profiles. That means I recommend ways to make your profile more effective and write compelling copy and client testimonials to set you apart.

Since you're probably on LinkedIn, I decided I would share a strategy each week to help ensure your profile is the best reflection of you.

LinkedIn Wisdom #1 
If you're a job seeker and currently unemployed, make your present position the title you are pursuing and, under company name, put Seeking New Opportunity. This will make it easier for prospective employers to find you.


Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"Simple but brilliant! That's Tricia Molloy's 'Work-Life Balance Wisdom' program. 


"Tricia spoke to more than 600 AT&T employees at our headquarters in Dallas and via webcast to AT&T offices throughout the country. She got us to think about our lives in a different way. Her empowering message struck a chord with so many of us, regardless of our level or lifestyle. We followed up the event with a book giveaway to encourage participants to improve their balance by making conscious choices-like cleaning out technical clutter and using positive affirmations. 


"Even a respected senior executive who is known for her commitment to balance said she learned some new strategies that she'll apply right away."
Tiffany Jenkins, Director of Audit Services
