We simply can't afford that so many women in Germany leave the work force once they have children, not returning at all or more importantly not to their full potential. This is not just an issue regarding female rights or female empowerment. It's an economical need.

For us digital entrepreneurs, a unicorn is what we call a start-up with a valuation of more than a billion dollars. (Yes, I said billion -- with a B.) It's what every self-employed techie dreams of: coming up with that one needle-in-a-haystack idea that's going to pay off every penny of debt and let you live a carefree life for the rest of your life.

I occasionally suffer from "bright shiny object" syndrome, or like a dog who suddenly veers off when he spots a squirrel. When I'm working on one thing, something else will grab my attention; I drop the thing I'm working on and jump to the other. I know that isn't efficient, yet I sometimes don't realize how distracted I have become.

Tom Brady just won his fifth Super Bowl ring. He is the most successful quarterback in NFL history, he has what appears to be a perfect life, has more success than anyone can imagine, yet he is not loved by all. He is not seen by all as the best, and he is not the most popular player in NFL either. Why not?

It's absurd that so many people still work eight hours a day, five days a week -- or more -- with only a few weeks' vacation a year, often needing two incomes to support a household. Our economic system was developed when resources seemed plentiful if not inexhaustible, and physical infrastructure was lacking. We need an overhaul to meet today's conditions rather than those that existed decades ago when we were unaware of many of the potential negative consequences of our actions.

Your parents might have taught you not to curse, but did the lesson really stick? New research seems to suggest that it hasn't: two-thirds of all millennial employees swear at work, while 58 per cent of Gen Xers and Baby Boomers are said to swear while on the clock.

Millennials are proving that they don't need intense supervision as previously assumed. In reality, you may find that millennials are teaching older generations a thing or two about enhancing a business.
I recently read a heart-wrenching essay in The Globe and Mail's Facts and Arguments section. It's about a woman named Sally who is going through a difficult emotional time and questioning the universe while having a spa day. Her turmoil was palpable, her angst was raw, and her self-doubt was heart-wrenching.

Canada's seven per cent national unemployment rate masks the very real fear older workers have about job loss in the years leading up to their retirement. It is true that many employers are developing progressive policies that cover how to accommodate an aging workforce.

September is here, and with the arrival of the cooler crisp air and changing colours we are adjusting to getting back into the comfort of our familiar routines. Getting back into the swing of things can be quite hectic after a summer of relaxation -- holidays are over, kids are back at school, school year activities begin and your personal time is minimal.

That unsettled feeling you or your co-workers have? That feeling of being overwhelmed? It's stress. Stress because you don't have the authority, resources and/or skills and knowledge necessary to meet your responsibilities. Stress that you won't be able to do the things expected of you, that you will have to settle for poor quality work, or that you will let someone down. And this stress can be managed.

Imagine choosing your path according to your strengths and passion whether you are a man or a woman, whether it's profitable or not. Imagine if you could explore your talents in an early age and respond to your calling as soon as you start working. If you have a job you don't like and want to find your passion, it's never too late.

Mary Poppins taught us about good posture when we were young and so the same principles should apply later in life. Proper posture and form can help reduce the strain on the ligaments and spinal discs in the back.

More labour advocates must realize that solidarity should extend to other species and that the expansion of a humane economy is a compelling opportunity to grow and evolve in progressive ways. Failure to do so would be a grave lost opportunity.

I've had the privilege of working with motivational women for years and being included in this category is truly humbling. Being a career woman myself I often am asked the secrets to success.

I keep my house clean, my car clean and my desk clean. I know that whether they mean to or not, guests and coworkers will judge me and my abilities on what they see. I don't want my guests to be afraid to eat my food, or my coworkers to think that I can't do my job properly because of the way I have presented myself. I take pride in all aspects of my job.

I shake my head whenever I am exposed to these stereotypes, because they are contrary to my experiences as a tech employer. After careful consideration, I've determined that not only are the specific traits of millennial employees completely opposite to these characterizations, but that a company can really capitalize on them to achieve their business objectives.

I'm in great shape, emotionally and physically... I've learned some new tips for balancing all the things that I like to do, and as a result, I'm enjoying my practice in a way that I hadn't been, previously. Taking time away from work has renewed my love for the job and has made me a better therapist, as a result.

During the same four year period of chronic illness and injury, I made a radical and terrifying career change, went through a devastating divorce, sold the only home I ever owned, tried to force myself to finish a PhD I hated, lost almost all of my money, and had a personal identity crisis.
The word "selfish" has a bad rap. I get it. Being "concerned chiefly or only with yourself" seems like kind of an asshole move, but is that always the case? I don't think so. The "Screw you, suckers!" variety of selfishness deserves its critics, but what about the kind of selfishness that simply means you're putting yourself first?
