Whenever a woman is revealed to be the heir apparent to become CEO at a major company, we get excited here at Working Mother. But when that woman is also a mother, let alone a single mom of three under 8, including a set of twins, we pretty much lose our minds. That woman is Marianne Lake, and she just moved out of her CFO position to become CEO of consumer lending at JP Morgan Chase & Co., one of our 100 Best Companies. The rumor is this operational experience will prep her to take over for Jamie Dimon, the company's current (and male) CEO.
Rather than wait to be “voluntold,” take ownership of a project or initiative and run with it. Naturally, it’s ideal if it’s work you’re genuinely passionate about, but even if you aren’t, consider offering your leadership anyway. You might end up loving the assignment, and your boss will appreciate your ingenuity. Star employees possess a “roll-up-the-sleeves” mentality and a fearless enthusiasm to try new things and take risks.
Well, not just marriage, but picking the right person to marry. As the billionaire told his shareholders at a 2009 Berkshire annual meeting:
Marry the right person. I'm serious about that. It will make more difference in your life. It will change your aspirations, all kinds of things.
Even research agrees that having the right life partner matters--to the point of increasing a partner's own salary, regardless of gender, by approximately $4,000 more per year.
While Buffett's own marriage arrangement has been called "unconventional," one thing every marriage must become for partners to reap the benefits is sustainable.
Spot-reducing belly fat just isn't possible, no matter how many ab workouts you do. It's inconvenient, but don't panic — that doesn't mean that belly fat is there for good. Through a combination of exercise and diet, you can definitely work to reduce your overall body fat, and that includes around the belly area. According to Jackie Vick, NCSF, Gold's Gym certified personal trainer and GOLD'S AMP coach, walking is a great way to reduce body fat and build lean muscle. It burns calories and, she added, "is one of the easiest forms of exercise to incorporate into your fitness regimen."
Another benefit: you engage your core while walking, according to Natalie Hough, NASM, a personal trainer for Bach in Los Angeles. That, combined with core-strengthening exercises, can help to flatten your belly. As with any weight-loss regimen, though, you'll need to burn more calories than you consume to see that ab definition.
If you've ever shunned a session of HIIT in exchange for a good old-fashioned soak, rest assured, you probably didn't do yourself any harm.
In fact, research suggests that taking a hot bath actually simulates many of the same health benefits triggered by exercise, perhaps suggesting that you should spend more time relaxing and less time hitting the pavement.
How do we know this? Researchers at the National Centre for Sport and Exercise Medicine at the University of Loughborough in the UK recruited 14 men and assigned them to either an hour of cycling or an hour-long bath (we know which one we'd choose) and concluded that those who spent their time soaking achieved similar health benefits to those who exercised.
As any trainer worth their free weights will tell you, a strong core is key to pretty much a strong everything else. But there’s one problem: Holding a plank for a minute-and-a-half for the sake of getting stronger is A) hard and B) boring as hell.
Thanks to Le Sweat founder Charlee Atkins, you can light that core afire without having to pop into plank pose for any longer than 30 seconds. In honor of our Trainer of the Month Club’s week two ab challenge, she shares a no-equipment workout that will help you get a more powerful core in seven minutes flat.
After week one’s no-equipment abs workout left our center’s burning (seriously—we did them in the office every day for a week, and it was hard), week two’s workout is meant to take that strength and apply it to your whole body. And, it’s worth noting, Atkins’ tips from last week still hold true. “In all of these core exercises, the focus is to stabilize the core around the spine,” she told us. “So in any supine (or lying) exercises the emphasis is pressing the lower back into the ground. And for any prone exercises the focus is on keeping a flat back, head in line with hips or heels, depending on exercise.”
