New York Women’s Leadership Speaker & Author Publishes Inspirational Book for Women

Happiness is Your Responsibility: Peggy’s Playbook of Motivational Moments, a new book by Peggy Sullivan, has been released by Dorrance Publishing Co., Inc.

Full of humor, warmth, and straight-up truths, “Happiness is Your Responsibility” takes you through a whirlwind of emotions through storytelling and visual design. Everyone wants to be happy, but for some reason, our happiness has become tied to worldly achievements and successes rather than the other way round. “Happiness is Your Responsibility” is here to tell you that happiness is an inside job. When you take responsibility for your own happiness, it will improve the quality of your life in a monumental way.

“My goal was not to write a book on happiness, but to teach myself about the art and science of happiness. The more I learned, the more I realized what a powerful tool it is! Not only does it actively encourage growth – but it also adds pleasure to everyday, mundane happenings in your life.”

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll find yourself grabbing some post-it’s and a highlighter to jot down all the practical and straightforward ways that you can stretch, strengthen and flex your happiness muscle.

All of the author’s proceeds from the book sales will benefit the women’s nonprofit organization, SheCAN!, in which Sullivan is the founder. The organization will use this round of funding to build programming around the book’s theme, “How to Flex and Maintain Your Happiness Muscle,” through what Sullivan calls The Happiness Tripod, a combination of professional development, personal development, and health and wellness.

Women’s Business Coach Creates Unique Offering to Help Women Rise

When we measure success by the lives we are changing and the growth we experience as individuals, then we will be closer to success by nature’s standard.

Key Ingredients, LLC was established by Women’s Business Coach Cheryl Schuberth to encourage women to rethink the male-focused business cultures they live within and redefine what success looks like.

“We’ve made progress in supporting the needs of women in the workplace with nursing rooms and an appreciation for flexible hours,” said Key Ingredients Founder, Cheryl Schuberth, “but we still structure our individual success in terms of following a plan versus impact and human development. When we measure success by the lives we are changing and the growth we experience as individuals, then we will be closer to success by nature’s standard.”

Cheryl Schuberth is a sought after Women’s Business Coach and mentor, spending over twenty-five years coaching clients, program teams and employees, and has served alongside senior executives in the technology space. She resigned two years ago to build a better relationship with her teenage sons and to empower other working women to become more curious about their options and to re-evaluate their priorities.

“Women typically take care of everyone else’s needs, including their employers, before themselves, and are rewarded for that by our business and societal cultures,” Cheryl continues. “But that’s like asking a painter to create without a canvas or any paint. When we try to serve from an empty cup, we lack creativity, confidence and focus. In order to be our best, we need to serve ourselves first.”

Key Ingredients focuses on balance, which involves subtracting from life as much as adding to it. We give women the tools to rethink their role and enable them to create a life driven by intention and purpose.

Pace Women’s Justice Center Presents the Spring S.I.P. (Still in Place) Series

Pace Women’s Justice Center (pwjc), Westchester’s largest non-profit provider of free legal services to victims of domestic violence, assault, and elder abuse, has organized virtual events in support of their community of victims and survivors that have experienced interpersonal violence. During the Covid-19 pandemic, but the pwjc clients are often quarantined at home with their abusers which further reduces their opportunities to access help. All of the S.I.P. events will be virtual and open to the public. The events range from free to a single fee per household but registrations are required for each event. The first event took place on March 11th, with over 100 attendees gathered on Zoom to learn about the impact of Covid-19 on Domestic Violence victims and how they can access help in Westchester County.

The second event in the series takes place April 8th, A Monologue and a Chat, bringing to light the lifelong trauma experienced by victims of abuse. Trauma manifests itself differently for everyone, making it difficult for people who haven’t experienced it to respond, help or understand, leading to the question “why didn’t you leave?” The event starts with an exclusive reading of Cynthia L. Cooper’s monologue, providing some insight on abuse through the eyes of a victim. A live discussion will follow focusing on the impact of abuse patterns commonly referred to as coercive control and the coping methods survivors employ to handle the psychological trauma.

The S.I.P. series culminates on Wednesday, April 28 – 8:00 P.M.
