What a fabulous year 2015 was! Thanks so much to all of my fabulous readers for picking these posts as their favorites!

Wondering if you enjoyed the best of the best?  Here they are…the most popular (according to views) of 2015:


MBA SAHM’s Best Posts of 2014

2014 was a major year for me and my family.  I transitioned to being a stay-at-home parent, managed to keep my little one healthy and happy, re-adjusted to a traveling spouse – and of course, launched this blog.

I wouldn’t trade being home with my son for anything, but I also can not deny that I would probably go absolutely crazy if I did not have this blog to keep me mentally challenged and fulfilled.  I still love business and the working world, so this has been my way to stay engaged and feeling adult-ish.

So here goes! A letter to my 20-Something Self:


Why We Need a 4-Day Workweek

A 4-day workweek. Forever. Sound good?

Of course it does. It sounds amaaazing. But is it so amazing that it’s too good to be true? Let’s hope not….because it turns out it would probably be good for our health.

And the economy.

And our relationships.

And even the environment.

Ok, I’ll stop. But you get the point – it would be good for us!

But seriously, here are the actual, supported, peer-reviewed, expert-recommended reasons for switching to a 4-day workweek. (more…)
