Colleen Burns is a Lifestyle Expert and a Mom on the Run. Today she is talking about the importance of staying cool and taking care to have the right products to protect you and your family this summer season.

Colleen used to chase stories as a reporter and anchor for a national news network, and covered local beats for CBS affiliates in Illinois and Minnesota. She was also producer for the nationally syndicated Emmy Award winning show “Smarter Living”, and contributed regularly for PBS and The Weather Channel. Once she started having kids (…and kept having them) she realized time-management had become her biggest job. If she could just get time on her side she might have a fighting chance at this Supermom-thing. So, she began searching out the best products, the quickest recipes, time-saving gadgets…you get the idea. That is how she became The Mom On The Run. Go to her blog to learn more on Mom on the Run.
