1 year. I sit here inside Joe & the Juice on 62nd and Lexington wondering how the hell I got here. Never in a million years did I think I would ever have the balls to do something like this. I am not your traditional risk taker. I am the person who talks about it, but then never does it. Or am I?Read More
The last month for me has been quite a blur. I am juggling a million different things right now from my business, to freelance gigs, to everything in between. So that's when 2018 decided to call a major audible and decided to drop the bomb of all bombs on me: Breast Cancer.Read More
A few months back I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Being Boss, and I stumbled upon an episode with the founder of Biddy Tarot, Brigit Esselmont. The episode was about using tarot to help bring professional insights to whatever questions you have surrounding your business or professional life. The idea isn't to tell you winning lottery numbers or tell you the name of the great love of your life, but really to inspire a different way of looking at a situation.Read More
I have been going a mile a minute since I launched my business at the end of last year. I remember speaking in this space about how I was feeling really anxious and a bit overwhelmed trying to get it all together and figure everything out. While there is still an element of that, somewhere along the way, another part of my brain clicked and lately my outlook on many things has shifted since last year when I launched.Read More
I'm sitting here typing this, feeling very behind on my week as I recently just returned from a trip to Iceland. While I'm feeling a little bogged down playing catch up, I've also never felt more rejuvenated. It's amazing how a week off the grid will do this.Read More
A few weeks back, I talked your ear off about New Years Resolutions and cutting yourself some slack. I think it's important for us to recognize that while maybe we didn't capitalize on that gym membership, or save the amount of money we wanted to, that we're still OK. We survived 2017, which if you happen to watch the news at all, is a huge feat.I think we should absolutely have goals and aspirations. What I don't believe is that we should fixate so much on them that we end up ignoring some of the amazing things we did this year.
So as promised, here is my letter to myself to bid 2017 adieu.Read More
A mentor is defined as an experienced and trusted adviser — however, in my life, my mentors have been far more to me than that.I've been fortunate enough to have a few great mentors in my life and career, who have helped shape who I am not only as a professional but as a human being. So much, that I feel compelled to talk about why having a mentor is beneficial for you and your career.Read More
It's been almost 3 months since I kissed corporate life goodbye (well, almost) to start my own business, and it feels great to be able to finally do something for myself that is creative and challenging at the same time.That said, I've found myself feeling a little down lately.
About what? I didn't think I was sure until I realized that I've been in mourning.Read More
Many people have asked me how I decided to split from corporate life into entrepreneur life. While I did have assistance from a coach of my own, (shout out, Harper Spero) I also spent much more time focusing on my own creativity as a source of clarity. What I found is that deciding what to do next in your professional life is not so cut and dry; the countless hours of job hunting on LinkedIn will only get you so far.Read More
Why is it that resolutions make us feel so good, yet so bad at the same time?
Your intentions were good. You purchased a really cute notebook from Rifle Paper Company, some really fun gold pens, and you scribbled down all of your promises to yourself. You then took a photo of said resolutions, maybe next to a glass of wine.. (this is the last glass of wine, you are doing dry January, remember?) and then you post the photo on Instagram…because it isn’t real unless you post it on Instagram.Read More
