    KAREN, it was wonderful on many levels. This dialog is EXACTLY what is needed. You have given many women license and instruction to maintain their individuality while still being part of a family unit. Thank you!

    Wonderful interview, let’s just hope we can also get Miss Jill Scott back on HBO in The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. Working so hard to bring her back. Looking forward to the new songs.

    Love this clip. Very inspiring. I like that fact that you say “blend” not balance it all. Can we really balance it ALL. Something gotta blend. Look forward to more from KTB! Blog on! Will be checking out the blog on a regular!

    HOME RUN!!!!!!!! You have set the bar high with your first interview but that is why you are who you are. The interview felt comfortable and warm. Both ladies opened up to really reveal how they deal with the balance and blending. Thank you for letting everyone know, they are not alone in trying to make it all work.

    Love the interviews and how no two women deal with the work and family the same.  It’s important that each individual woman finds the balance that works best for their particular situation.  We are all juggling so many balls in the air at the same time that it’s easy to loose sight of ourselves.

    Hey KT(B), Nice to see your still doing your thing! I think its important for mothers, especially new mothers to have a place to get advice (from those who have already had the experiences). Its nice to have some type of support system in place. By baby, is no longer a baby and has just completed her first semester in college. But I still appreciate all that you do. Peace…BumbleBee (Philly)

    Excellent interview and more importantly…great tips. It’s refreshing to know that we moms share some of the same challenges. Thanks for showing us all that we can still live our best lives ever, take care of our children and keep smiling! Great job, Ms. Karen.
