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 . . .
Anyone who's been following along with me for any amount of time knows I rebranded my blog this past August from what was formerly Sunday Mornings Blog. Part of this revamp and rebrand entailed me sitting down and asking myself, "okay, so why you?" And by that I mean, why should YOU decide to come to MY blog every day or two or five when . . .
My family was never big on New Year’s Eve festivities. I’m not exactly sure why. Outside of my mom’s nightly glass of red wine, none of us are big drinkers. My dad and I are both a bit introverted. And none of us like crowds. Growing up, our New Year’s Eves were always quiet but enjoyable. My parents made amazing, fresh seafood (which I didn’t grow . . .
Okay - let's take a second and chat here. There's a topic I think needs some addressing - how to approach someone with whom you'd like to network. Now, if you've read my post about why I'm convinced most people think of networking all wrong, you'll likely know that I believe one common misconception to be the idea that networking is only something . . .
Okay workaholics - I know you because I am you. On any given day, I put intense amounts of pressure on myself to output insane amounts of work product. When I first moved to LA, I was so bound and determined to make a good impression that I took on anything and everything thrown at me. I thought that being a good employee - and a good manager to . . .
I consider myself to be an extremely hospitable person. Let me be clear: my family PRIDES themselves on making room at the dinner table and in our home for guests, so to be anything BUT hospitable is to bring intense shame upon my parents. I do my best at opening my home to anyone who wants to swing through, but this past week, Mike and I had some . . .
Most of you know, I have been employed full-time in the entertainment industry since my senior year of college. I've worked with the likes of Harpo, ABC, and FOX and have taken away invaluable insight from each experience. Freelancing is extremely common in the entertainment industry. Since television shows and movies run for finite periods . . .
This past year, our team had a job opening. Since the final say and ultimate hiring power lay with my boss, she asked me to collect resumes and conduct first round interviews and pass along my selections. Here's a quick tip: just because your initial interview isn't with the "big boss" does not mean that your first interviewer has no say in . . .
