A Woman’s Nation? Yes & for a Long, Long Time
Watching Meet the Press this morning and Maria Shriver was on to discuss the just-released Center for American Progress “The Shriver Report” about the changes in the workforce and the amazing changes that have occurred as it has shifted toward a critical mass of women and the earning they’re responsible for today.
NBC is devoting an entire week to “A Woman’s Nation” and this report is certainly going to be on the tips of the tongues of many going forward.
I married a professional woman who has worked at a high level all of her life so the sorts of things discussed today on Meet the Press — women out-earning men and primary breadwinners; male egos; and the flexibility companies and organizations need to address as these shifts occur — are ones my bride and I have dealt with, and negotiated on, our entire lives and with pretty good success.
Whether you agree with some of the conclusions in the report or not, the facts are irrefutable and are ones shaping our future regardless of any personal opinions. I predict the next report to hit the national consciousness will be ones outlining the changes in the ethnicity of our nation and the changes here now and coming next.

Connecting the Dots Podcast
Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows.
