Behind The Scenes...Letter from our Co-Founder and Business Operations Manager, Lindsey Day -- November 25, 2013Women rarely give ourselves credit for the innate power that's within us.

But when we focus this same energy on…

Water Cooler Convos // November 18, 2013This article originally appeared on Water Cooler Convos. When a teenager goes to school and doesn’t come home at the end of the day, it, no doubt, raises questions for any parent. But 17-year-old Kendrick Johnson’s parents learned of a terrible fate for their son this past January. Johnson was found dead in a wrestling mat at his Georgia high school. But, what has remained unclear…
Big Plans ... Letter from our Editor-in-Chief, Serena Watson -- November 18, 2013 Some people take a "go with the flow" approach to life. I am not one of these people. I like to plan out everything, then come up with back up and alternative plans based on the possible outcomes ... it's just who I am.Recently, God took my little note book of plans and set it on fire…
Adapt.Letter from our Co-Founder and Business Operations Manager, Lindsey Day -- November 5, 2013In this brave new world, adaptation is more important than ever. Outdated thinking and technology will not thrive. Top heavy companies will be forced to cut back. Business people have to know their markets better than anyone else -- or they will lose customers to more savvy brands.This week's issue is all about adapting to new circumstances.…
Current // November 4, 2013As the nation bounces back from the recent government shutdown, there's now an availability for the next hot topic to take the floor. By now, you’ve heard about the drama surrounding the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare). If you typically write off White House dealings as big government bologna, this is the one policy you need to pay attention to. A lot of complicated information goes…
Current // October 21, 2013 Being a lifestyle writer in Los Angeles, it's fairly regular that grand opening emails, new nightclub invitations or tweets about a creative new restaurant concept find their way into my inbox. Most recently, an invitation to LA Style Fashion Week found its way into my email... HELLO?! This is LA Fashion Week! I was excited to channel my inner Anna Wintour, put on a pair…
Motivation... Letter from our Editor-in-Chief, Serena Watson -- October 21, 2013Ah, yes. Motivation. Why does it seem like the harder you work and the further you get -- the more elusive it becomes? You may have reached some of your (many) goals, but you catch yourself running out of steam along the way. Maybe your project hits a snag, or your business is taking a little bit longer than expected…
Water Cooler Convos // October 7, 2013 Last week, the United States government came to a shrieking halt. National parks closed, Head Start programs were suspended, and federal administrative services went into hibernation. All this occurred because of Congress’ inability to pass a budget through both the Senate and the House of Representatives. It’s like every movie ever made about high school girls fighting over a cheerleading championship. President Obama,…
Making Moves.Letter from our Co-Founder and Business Operations Manager, Lindsey Day -- October 7, 2013Change is scary. Whether it's a new job, a new city, new policy...change scares us to death. It can cause us to do things that aren't in our best interest. Hell, it can cause entire governments to shut down. Being a Made Woman, though, is all about stepping outside of our comfort zones. It's about going…
Picture Perfect Letter from our Editor-in-Chief, Serena Watson -- September 23, 2013It’s sad, but true: women are held to a higher standard of perfection. Not only must you do the job, but you have to look good as you do it. Lord knows, sometimes it feels like just getting ready in the morning requires its own to-do list. As the tasks pile up and the responsibilities grow, sometimes that perfect…
What is a Made Woman?Letter from our Co-Founder, Lindsey Day -- September 9, 2013"What is a Made Woman to you?"

Years later, the Made Woman network has been built, but the answer to this question continues to be redefined.This week's issue truly…

Back to School Letter from our Editor-in-Chief, Serena Watson -- August 26, 2013Even though the weather here in Southern California doesn’t seem to acknowledge it, we are easing right into fall. The subtle shifts between seasons seem to be nature’s reminder to reflect on everything that happened this summer. To take stock, refocus goals and power through the last four months of the year. Here at Made Woman Mag, we…
