Anyone else have a hard time getting going on a Monday? I took Saturday off but worked the entire day on Sunday, so today feels more like Tuesday to me. But still - Mondays are never easy! (If you need a little kick in the butt, check out my post about working SMARTER, not HARDER!) I have a very specific learning style. In order for me to truly . . .
I recently fell back in love with reading. I know that sounds weird, but it's true. For an embarrassingly long time, I had little to no interest in it. Thinking about it, it's because I wrongfully associated reading with stagnation. I would see other bloggers share posts about all of the books they'd read recently and scoff. I'd think to myself, . . .
I spent the weekend devouring The Third Door by Alex Banayan. Let me just tell you - the book is like eating when you're hungry or drinking when you're thirsty - you can't get enough and it's so, so satisfying (and absolutely uncomfortable in places). I'll go into it in detail as soon as I've finished, but there was one quote in particular I wanted . . .
I'm convinced that remote, freelance work is the way of the future. The 9-5 will never totally go out of style. This is partially due to logistics of certain industries (I've never heard of a freelance hospital), and partly because of preference. But think about it: big business used to reign supreme because they had the funds with which to operate . . .
You guys want to know a secret? It's a big one, and I'm sharing it with you today. Since I graduate college five and some years ago, I've worked on one of the biggest dramas on network television, assisted some of the most high-profile producers in Hollywood, signed with an agent, and am currently in big exciting discussions for things that I . . .
Okay you guys - this post is a double-whammy. I'm sharing two big things that have been on my mind lately. The first is my new favorite clothing line, & Other Stories. I've been pretty transparent with you guys about my evolving style. (You can read this post about how I knew I had become an adult when I no longer found myself drawn to the . . .
When I started my blog, I was determined to keep it a secret. I wanted my blog identify to be totally separate from my real life identity. They were two separate worlds and personalities and I never wanted the two paths to know about the other. Guess what? That doesn't work. Over the course of the past few years, I've learned that a good . . .
Mike shared an interesting article with me recently from Forbes magazine. The article discusses the affliction of being an "insecure overachiever" and we both stopped dead in our tracks while reading. Essentially, an insecure overachiever is someone who THINKS they are going above and beyond for all the right reasons, but in actuality, their . . .
Hello, friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mike and I went to see ALTerEGO at The Forum, thanks to Kroger and Simple Truth products. It was the best time - we hadn't been out on a date in so long! Sometimes we get so lost in the details, we forget to pause and refocus on what matters. We get lost in the STUFF, and it clouds what's . . .
My mom always says that God knew what He was doing when He only gave her one child - He knew I'd be enough to keep her busy :) I'm pretty unabashed about the fact that I've always spent half of my time on earth and half with my head in the clouds. I've always had big goals, but, until about six years ago, I believed that, in order to achieve . . .
