Just read this post at BNET (CBS's Interactive Business Network) and I'm wondering how other women might feel about it, so I thought I'd share. I've started three businesses in the past 10 years. The first one, Windsor Media Enterprises, Inc. received an SBA loan - one that turned out... Read more →

"Will I be pretty, Mom?" Has your daughter ever asked you that? Or, do you see the question in her eyes - and know that she will not ask it, for fear of the answer? What, really, is pretty? By whose standards? And, why do we continue to placate ourselves... Read more →
Today I received an email from the M2W (marketing 2 women) conference suggesting I might want to use a "Girlfriend discount" to register - before the end of this month. I like the idea of a girlfriend discount but the way this offer was packaged has me seeing red. First... Read more →

They're accessories, they work, and they look nice. So, apparently, the fashion police want us to start buying new... Read more →
Please stop referring to me as Mr. DiVita. Obviously, you know nothing of me or my blog, which makes me wonder why you're pitching me. (Mr. DiVita is my ex-husband and he doesn't blog.) Please stop sending me off-topic pitches. I don't know what list I'm on but it's dead... Read more →
Ok, so how many of the Super Bowl's $3mill per 30 second ads actually appealed to women, you might ask. I wondered, even though I didn't ask. After all, who would I ask? Other women, presumably, but that's a limited group (if I'm asking during the Super Bowl). Interestingly enough,... Read more →
We discuss women's issues here, in addition to social media advice, and marketing to women online. The issues I tackle are ones I consider too important to ignore, and this is one. I hope all of my readers are acutely aware of the gang rape incident which happened to Jamie... Read more →
Two weeks ago I started writing about how this blog and WME, my publishing company, came into being. I promised Part II last week and...as with many good intentions, the week got away from me. So, here is Part II - with some insight into the pitfalls of being an... Read more →
