Tune In 1/19/12 For A Twitter #BOSSChat With Rene Syler

René Syler is a woman on a mission!

After two decades as a television news anchor, including four years on CBS’ The Early Show, Rene decided it was time for a change. Tired of reading from a teleprompter, René was determined to find her own voice and inspire women like herself - juggling busy lives, raising children and trying to live up to impossible parenting ideals. The result is René’s missive on modern motherhood, Good Enough Mother: The Perfectly Imperfect Book of Parenting and its subsequent website

René believes passionately in finding your voice and living by your own standards. As the daughter of two, breast cancer survivors René underwent a highly-publicized, preventive mastectomy in 2007. She now works tirelessly to promote early detection and travels the country speaking to groups of women (and men) about health issues, modern parenting and the importance of putting yourself first.

René writes for several websites, including TLC’s Parentables, Evenflo, Everyday Health and has her own column in The Birmingham News. She also makes regular guest appearances on TV shows, including CNN, BET, The Joy Behar Show, The Doctors and The Nate Berkus Show, is an in-demand speaker, continues to build the Good Enough Mother brand and is a proud wife to Buff Parham and parent to Casey and Cole.
