Entrepreneur ADD & what to do about it.

“*Opening eyes* It looks gloomy out. *Rolls over and grabs phone next to head* Let me check my emails and delete/organize before I get out of bed. Crap, 40 minutes has passed! Ok, I’ll shower later. Time to respond to my East Coast client. *Email typing* Ooh, 4 key steps to harness your brand’s power. *Beep, […]

2014 begins with the end in mind.

Eat less sugar. Buy a house. Stop cussing. Get in bikini bod shape. Complete a marathon. These are few of the New Year’s resolutions I’ve made in years past. I actually completely stopped making resolutions entirely because I felt they weren’t genuine and like most others’ resolutions, are very shortly lived. It wasn’t until I […]

So a job, a career and a calling are sitting at a table.

So here I am, sitting in my twelfth interview in the past four months, at a small but beautifully designed agency. I’m chatting with a young-ish owner about the various businesses he’s got his hands in, in addition to the one I’m interviewing for. Our conversation feels more like two people chatting over drinks than […]

Little miss busy’s 10 tools to manage life better

People almost automatically respond “I’m so busy but doing good!” when asked how things are going. I’m definitely guilty of it myself. Ironically, I actually mean it when I say it. I must be a secret masochist because I tend to  pile more on top of an already busy schedule.  I can’t pass up fun/exciting/engaging/great/challenging opportunities for the life […]

Life’s sense of humor…part 1.

Have you ever noticed how there sometimes seems to be a running theme during certain periods of your life? For me, things seem to happen in 3’s like a cascading thump to the head, as if to say, “Just in case you weren’t aware of this…pay attention!” My running theme the past couple weeks has […]

You know you’re thirty when____.

I’ve been paying attention to my language and action a lot lately. Why? To see if I’m exhibiting signs of my age. Sadly, I noticed a change beginning when I was 29. My daily priorities were changing. My crazy nights out were being swapped for early bed times and rested mornings. The filters by which […]

Teenage angst & young love…the stuff of classic movies.

I was cuddled up like a little cat next to my handsome boyfriend one night, watching the classic movie Rebel Without A Cause, starring the greatest bad boy of all-time, James Dean and the doe-like Natalie Wood. If you haven’t seen the movie, please get in your car (after you finish reading of course) and drive […]

Why I quit my job at 30 & went back to school.

I consistently get whiplash at how fast life can change. With a blink of an eye, your entire plan can be completely turned upside down and leave you shaking your head, wondering what’s next. Two months ago I was a part of a management team at a digital marketing company, running the marketing/PR/social media department. […]
