New Release for Working Moms

-A +A

Emotions are flaring out there in the world of working moms, dealing with the
explosion of the financial market, negative political ads, job layoffs,
the economic downturn, changes in lifestyles and family pressures.

On a relentless mission to cope and prevail, “Mompreneur” and "Business Midwife," Lucinda Cross of Yonkers,
New York was motivated to start her own business while working
frantically in the 9-5 corporate rat race, and shuffling her children back and
forth to daycare each day, rain or shine; sleet or snow.
Stressed out,
overworked and underpaid, Cross wanted more and subsequently decided to make a change for the sake of her family and for her own
well being.

Fast forward to 2009. Lucinda Cross is now a successful speaker,
author, small business start-up expert and more importantly, mom of two very happy and fulfilled elementary schoolers. Lucinda Cross
has achieved the work/life balance that every woman dreams of, and it all started with a simple concept
called a Vision Board.

Today, Lucinda has started monthly Empire State of Mind
Vision Board parties that has  the
world of business for moms and women hiking from all over the Tri-state area to
create a visualization of a lifestyle worth living.

Diana Bromfield, Author of "From Legos to Calculus..... A Parents guide to Private
School Admissions," stated that she gained valuable insight from Cross' Vision Board workshop.

Lucinda Cross will be sharing more insights about Vision Board at a Spring Fling Cocktail Party in celebration of  her new book, “Corporate Mom Dropouts
(Women Who Have Traded In the Life Sentence for a Profitable Lifestyle),” being
hosted by Brenda Jeanne Wyche, CEO of Winning Strategies & Associates, LLC,
The Phenomenal Women Group, Inc., The Black Star News, Privilege Studios, and
National Allotmemt Insurance Agency, Ltd.


The festivities will commence Wednesday, March 31st
, 6:30 pm at Privilege Studios located at 20 Jay Street, Studio 306, Brooklyn,
NY  11201.

"This is an historic moment for women and their families and we are proud to come together to celebrate the success of our sister Phenom, Lucinda Cross, as she helps other working mothers to rise,” stated Michelle Mitchell, Founder of The Phenomenal Women Group, Inc.
