Welcome to lifeisabalancingact.com, the website brought to you by Debbie Lessin and Balancing Act Productions, Inc.

Debbie Lessin is an author (Life is a Balancing Act…a fun book), a speaker (Life is a Balancing Act) and an entrepreneur (Balancing Act Productions, Inc., and D.J. Lessin & Associates, Inc.)

Life really is a balancing act! Our endless to-do lists have each of us juggling work and play, friends and family, heart and soul and mind and body in continuous always changing cycles.

Finding balance is a journey, a journey on a road without a map. Debbie readily admits that her fascination with balance was discovered by taking that journey and exploring the mystery and magic of all that life has to offer.

Debbie has created an inter-active workshop on life balance issues. Life is a Balancing Act - the live act provides practical advice on how to make balance a regular part of your day-to-day life. The presentation examines life priorities and provides an action plan for goal implementation. Debbie is a dynamic speaker with an endless supply of energy and passion. Life is a Balancing Act is fun and inspirational!

New! Balance Lady Designs
Unique & Expressive Accessories Repurposed Woven Necktie Silk

Balance Lady Designs came about as a result of Debbie admiring the amazingly wonderful silk designed by her friend and work neighbor Lee Allison. Lee designs and sells ties as well as other men's fashion accessories. Be sure to visit www.leeallison.com for the men in your life!

On a whim Debbie began using the necktie silk remnants to craft earrings, bobby pins and flower pins (that can also double as a hair barrette).

The craft project has now taken over Debbie's life, house and office!

Doing what Debbie does best, she took her creative endeavor and turned it into a new business.

The new Balance Lady Designs are available at a variety of boutiques and retailers throughout the city.
