Nick Bond’s "Quinn Time" starts every morning at 7:00. He walks into his son’s bedroom and lifts him out of his crib, and after a quick diaper change, they lie in bed and watch an episode of The Lion Guard, Quinn’s favorite TV show. Then it’s playtime while Nick feeds him breakfast. Their hour and a half of uninterrupted one-on-one time is baked into Quinn’s daily routi…

Your garage band has been dreaming of a national road tour for awhile, but you’re flat broke. You think your new invention will make you the next Mark Zuckerberg, but you have no way of financing it. Just a few short years ago, projects like these may have seemed impossible. Today, the Internet, social networking and limitations of traditional financing have given way t…

Every year, 10 finalists are named for the region’s most high-profile award honoring local women: the ATHENA. And every year, their collective accomplishments — in the business and non-profit world, and in their personal lives — are awe-inspiring.

When a new year dawns, words like “change” and “resolutions” are frequently batted about, usually regarding our physical health. But what about our state of mind? According to the National Institute of Mental Health, there were an estimated 43.6 million adults aged 18 or older in the United States with a mental or emotional disorder in 2014 – that’s 18.1 percent of all …

Chances are you played a sport while growing up. Not just one sport — all of them. As the seasons changed, so did the games. You didn’t always need a referee, and home-field advantage was just a fancy way of referring to your backyard. Those days are gone, replaced in large part by one-sport athletes on travel teams that play and practice year-round. The result, accord…

We’ve all heard the stories. We may even know a few of them — the parents who do their children’s homework, write their college essay or hire expensive SAT tutors to give their offspring a leg up on the competition. They’re the “helicopter parents” — those overindulgent moms and dads who hover over their children to prevent failure. Coined in 1990 by parenting and educa…

As Western New Yorkers shift toward making shopping choices based on more than cost alone, retailers are working harder to appeal to consumers’ hearts and minds. "This one is the cheapest.” “Ah, but this one is produced locally. This one is organic. Cruelty-free. Made in America. Fair trade. GMO-free. Produced by a company that shares my political, social, or religio…

Think back to your very first job — was it bussing tables, working the line in a hot kitchen or delivering newspapers? Our first venture into the world of employment developed so many simple (yet essential skills) that we keep in our career toolbox until the day we retire — and perhaps a few life lessons, too. We interviewed a few prominent working women in Western New …

There is perhaps no better embodiment of Buffalo’s comeback right now than Nick Sinatra. Not because of the buildings he’s renovating or the game-changing developments he’s championing — although of course they buoy the comeback. It’s more about his personal story, and what it symbolizes: how hard work, authenticity and tenacity pay off.  And how — even after moving in …

Fact: Western New York winters — which range from the illuminated, snow-kissed scenes of a Frank Capra film to the dire, snowstorm-ravaged landscape of a George Lucas film — can play with our emotions. Sidewalks go from bare to buried in minutes, and local meteorologists treat every mid-level storm like it could be the second coming of the Blizzard of ’77. These omnipre…
