Hear all about it.
Let’s face it. When you get to be a certain age, the question on everyone’s lips is: “Are you having kids?”
It’s not as easy to answer as it was for our mothers and grandmothers. It’s also not easy to weed out other peoples’ opinions from what you want. Not to mention that ticking time bomb called your biological clock.
No matter what you decide, the real trick is staying true to yourself.
Introducing the Mommy Drama teleseries, a six-part conversation over the phone.
Through structured conversation and powerful homework assignments, we’ll unearth everything we know about motherhood. We’ll look at what it means to you and at the long-term vision you have for your life. The whole time, you are supported by other women who are right where you are.
Want some help?
If you know what you want, but aren’t quite ready for a longer-term commitment like the Doing it Anyway Package, The Start Today Session is a solid choice.
What you’ll receive:
- One one-hour session dedicated to you
- Questions before to get you focused
- Written notes after to keep you on track
- Follow-up email to check on your progress
This is the perfect option for getting you clear on a goal, or past a bump along the way.
Amma, known as India’s Hugging Saint, visited Washington, DC this week to give nearly 10,000 people hugs. I’m quoted at the end of the article by Michelle Boorstein in The Washington Post called, “‘Hugging saint’ Mata Amritanandamayi embraces the masses in Alexandria,” because of my own journey with hugs.
‘I wouldn’t compare myself to her; I have a smaller mission. But the medium is the same,’ said Ostrofsky, who said the power isn’t in the physical hug, but in the seconds just before, when you’re expressing to someone the intention to show them love.
For her, she said, ‘this is like seeing the Mother Teresa of hugging.’
I was featured in an article by Esther Pearsen on Marketing for Introverts in the May/June 2012 issue of Massage & Bodywork Magazin. My advice included the following:
Introverts have their own unique strengths that set them apart in the world of marketing. Lauree Ostrofsky, a life coach and founder of the coaching firm Simply Leap, sums up three of these strengths 1) quality over quantity, 2) listening, and 3) written communication.
For more on each of these strengths, check out the article.
I was featured in an article by Amy Levin-Epstein on Freelancer splurges: 7 worth investing in on CBSNews.com.
“The best splurge I made was for a virtual assistant: jesslarsen.com. Even though my background is marketing, I was not getting on Twitter and Facebook as much I wanted. I had Jess go through my blog and website, pulling out key phrases that could be become tweets and status updates a couple times per day, [and] I could fill in whenever I had time,” says life coach Lauree Ostrofsky.
Lauree Ostrofsky will speak at the Rotary Club of Potomac this week.
Topic: Live, Work and Hug Like You Mean It.
When: Wednesday, September 21 from noon-1:30pm.
Lauree launched her Hug Tour in April to show loved ones that she cares.
Since then she spoke on the subject at Ignite Baltimore, and appeared on WUSA-TV in Washington, DC and The Huffington Post encouraging others to hug like-you-mean-it. Now, there are Hug Tour Ambassadors in 11 states and growing.
Let’s take that simple concept a step further.
What if you could live and work the way you hug the people you love?
Lauree will explore how to apply the like-you-mean-it conviction to the choices you make in your personal and professional lives. From the smallest decisions, such as having that second cup of coffee in the morning, to the most empowering – what you tell yourself and how you want others to see you.
Anything can be accomplished like-you-mean-it. Let it begin with a hug.

On June 16, 2010, Lauree Ostrofsky will be one of 16 featured speakers at Ignite DC #4.
The premise is simple: Five minutes, 20 slides. What would you say? At every Ignite, 16 artists, technologists, thinkers, and personalities take the stage to answer this challenge. The goal is to spark new conversations and collaborations across cultures and disciplines.
Come hear Lauree speak about How My Brain Tumor Will Change Your Life based on her successful blog series. She’ll share the lessons learned from her experience as a reminder and inspiration for your life.
This is your chance, as it was Lauree’s, to decide what you want to do and do it already. No kidding.
