Balancing Act: Is working late a necessity, or a habit?

It's a challenge almost every worker faces: getting out the office door on time. Many get caught in an email trap, sticking around to send one more message and finding themselves still at the office an hour later. Others linger late to appear committed to their jobs, particularly when the culture demands it.

Astrologer Chani Nicholas doesn't care if you approve of her

LOS ANGELES - The gig: Chani Nicholas, 41, is an astrologer who writes horoscopes and teaches several online classes through her website, Chaninicholas.com. Her weekly takes are not of the "on Thursday, you'll find a new boyfriend" variety. Nicholas regularly veers into the world of leftist politics and has won as many as 1 million monthly readers with writing that is mystical but not cliche. Nicholas makes her living by charging relatively low fees - $21 to $48 - for her readers to take online classes on interpreting their astrological chart, which is a map of the positioning of the planets at the moment that a person took their first breath. She said more than 12,000 people have taken at least one of the classes within the last 14 months. That puts her income over the last year or so well into the six-figure range.
