What Works for Me is informative and engaging -- pop culture and great advice all rolled into one. Here’s what readers think about it: I read Maria’s advice every week. I’m grateful because afterwards I feel smarter and like a better person. There are always tips and suggestions to employ in my daily life. — Tracey I may not have the same problem of your contributors, however, I can always pull something out of your advice that can help me with something else going on in my life. Thank you! — Carol Indeed, your column needs to be read diligently by anyone struggling with a personal problem. — Polly Let me know what’s on your mind. My best topics are creativity, navigating change, women’s stuff, work, and family. Just let me know whatever’s on your mind or heart. Or maybe you have a question “for a friend”—that’ll work, too!

If you have specific concerns or a situation in which you require professional, psychological or medical help, you should consult with an appropriately trained and qualified specialist.
