RISE Up Book Club - "Off Balance" by Matthew Kelly

RISE Up Book Club - "Off Balance" by Matthew Kelly

One of the major issues in our lives today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; no one has it. But Matthew Kelly believes that work- life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don't really want balance. We want satisfaction.

Kelly lays out the system he uses with his clients, his team, and himself to find deep, long-term satisfaction both personally and professionally. He introduces us to the three philosophies of our age that are dragging us down. He shows us how to cultivate the energy that will give us enough battery power for everything we need and want to do. And finally, in five clear steps, he shows us how to use his Personal & Professional Satisfaction System to establish and honor our biggest priorities, even if we spend a lot more time on some of the lesser ones.

Women + Wealth

Women + Wealth

A growing economic force, women account for almost half of U.S. wealth creators. Women have a longer time horizon, they participate more in their companies’ retirement plans and they invest slightly more of their income, than men. But women know that there is more to life than money — and that true wealth springs from a good quality of life, and from the values and people we cherish most deeply. Complementing this understanding, more and more women are taking control of their own destinies and starting their own businesses. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a physician, a lawyer, or a corporate employee, join us for engaging and rich conversation about women and wealth.

This month, we're reading "Lean In" by Sheryl Sandberg. Thirty years after women became 50 percent of the college graduates in the United States, men still hold the vast majority of leadership positions in government and industry. This means that women’s voices are still not heard equally in the decisions that most affect our lives. In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg examines why women’s progress in achieving leadership roles has stalled, explains the root causes, and offers compelling, commonsense solutions that can empower women to achieve their full potential.
