To wrap up our first annual WoMo Summer Camp, in typical late night camp form, we're going to talk about boys. However, we're going to talk about some of the things that boys (that grow up to be men) do to get ahead and how we can apply that to our own lives and careers.

Men tend to be early adopters of technology, ask for what they want, "wing it" when in doubt, and make friends in high places.

Tune in to see how you can adopt some of these traits in your career.

So I couldn't let this summer go by without hosting a "summer camp" for my WoMos. We often talk about caring for our families, being great employees and business owners and supporting others. Well this week, we are going to support ourselves by taking time for US. Who's with me??

In today's camp we're going to have a campside story about the secret of being awesome. There are rows and rows of books about self-help, networking, and success in bookstores and online, but at the end of the day it all comes down to one thing.

Tune in to find out The Secret of Being Awesome.

This episode is all about planning the second half of 2015. July 1 is like a second chance at New Year's Day. It is a great time to restart, realign, or refocus on your goals. Within the Working Motherhood, we focus on 7 main areas when it comes to life and goal setting (in no particular order):

1. Physical - I break this area into 2 sections. Internally, we should be focused on our health through our nutrition, exercise, sleep patterns, stress levels, water intake and mobility exercises. Externally, we want to focus on fashion and taking care of the outward manifestation of that internal health through proper hair, skin, and nail treatment. 

2. Career - This area is pretty self-explanatory but this is where you want to set your goals for your career. This area also includes mentors, mentees, and business coaches and development courses. 

3. Family - How do you want your family to look on December 31, 2015? What values do you want to pass to your children? What memories do you want to create? What habits do you either want to create or destroy?

4. Financial - This can span the range of becoming debt-free and setting up a 6 month emergency fund all the way to creating an estate plan and setting up proper insurance structures. 

5. Intellectual - What do you want to learn? A new language? Read X books a month? 

6. Social - As busy working moms, we tend to just focus on our family and our career so this is the area that reminds you to actually have a life outside of our day -to-day responsibilities. Arrange a girls night. Go shopping or skeet shooting or whatever you like to do with a friend. 

7. Spiritual - This is going to look different for everyone based on your individual beliefs, but take some time to figure out what you'd like to accomplish in this area by the end of the year. Start meditating daily? Memorize some Bible verses? Write in a gratitude journal?
