@ is a host on HGTV and the Today Show. Carly covers digital tech and how it affects our daily lives.
"That technology should rise up to serve you, not bum you out. That adopting the right technology can be life changing. That you can live beautifully and elegantly with technology without spending a lot of money and time. And that everyone can do it if they have the right guide."
--Carley's thoughts on technology from her website
"Meditation itself is about letting go of any need to try and get somewhere or achieve something. So if we are approaching it in the right way, then there is no pressure whatsoever. In fact, it may just be the very first thing we have ever done in our entire life where there is no goal or result intended. This is quite a liberating feeling. All that meditation asks of us is that we train the mind to be less distracted."
--Andy on meditation from his blog

"In 2010, Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad. I sat in the audience with Miles in my womb and I remember thinking, 'This thing will change the way my child sees the world.' Clearly I was right! My son wasn't afraid of the blood test, as long as he could call up some visuals of what to expect."

"It's amazing how much technology has changed over the past decade and how ingrained it has become in our society. And this is just the beginning... I can honestly say that technology has truly paved the way for a more organized and efficient life. And it's made me a better mom in the process."
--Jeana on how technology made her a better mom from Mashable
"[When I] got organized and made better business choices so that I was free to go all in with my kids and make the most of our time together. It was counterintuitive to me at first, but it created a beautiful cycle: The more I genuinely focused on family, the more it actually helped my career. The smarter I worked, the more I was able to build better relationships with my kids."
