Reign in the Holiday Madness

Early this weekend I had quite the calendar surprise: Thanksgiving is next Thursday. Right.

It's that magical and oh-so-stressful Double Diamond Downhill slide from Halloween straight to New Year's Eve and it seems that all personal and professional responsibilities are colliding. You're on the phone with the Benefits department to choose your new health plan for open enrollment and shopping online for forgotten teachers' gifts all the while figuring out who's going to attend the Holiday Program at school that's happening right when your big new client pitch is scheduled. You want to just enjoy the magic but when the kids are handing you Santa Lists while you tell the accountant you can't possibly have year-end projections ready this week, it's hard not to feel a little Grinchy.

To try and keep everything under control I turned to some of the smartest, most organized and thoughtful women I know: the Momentum Resources Team. I asked for one tip from each and they each poured out some amazing advice on schedule sanity, gift-giving and most importantly, how to make the holidays a meaningful time for you and your family.

Stay tuned, great tips coming your way!
