Everyone feels stressed from time to time, especially as the responsibilities stack up on our plate.  The thing about stress is, a little bit of it isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but too much of it can be detrimental to our emotional and physical health.  Learning to find that healthy balance is the best way to live a productive, happy life.

Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month started as a Women’s History Week celebration in Santa Rosa, California in 1978 to correspond with International Women’s Day on March 8th. Then, because of the rapid popularity, a syndicate of women’s groups and historians—led by the National Women’s History Project – successfully lobbied for national recognition in 1980.  President Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8th, 1980 as National Women’s History Week.  In 1987, Congress passed Public Law 100-9, forever designating March as “Women’s History Month.”

This month we honor Christine Ross who was the first woman to attain a CPA license in America.  She passed her CPA exam in June of 1898.  But, the New York Board of Regents didn’t allow women to be granted a license until December 21, 1899.  […]
