WHY YOU HAVE TO REINVENT YOURSELF (or the death of “job stability myth” and what you should do instead)

Let me tell you a story. Imagine someone around the age of eighteen – maybe younger, maybe older. This person finds good job. Perhaps it doesn’t make millions, but it is a decent paycheck that puts food on the table and affords them a two-week vacation here and there. This person continues working at this job as they turn thirty, forty, fifty – all the while getting steady raises and steady promotions based on their performance. So long as they work hard, are loyal, and are trustworthy, the job is theirs. At a decent senior age, this person finally retires […]

SHOUT OUT YOUR DREAMS (or how to set your goals, gain traction and accountability without leaving your house)

Setting your goals is a critical part to achieving anything in life. This is your chance to lay down, on paper, just what you want in life, why you want it, and when you want it by. These are all critical components of achieving anything. You cannot get fear and self-doubt get in your way. As long as the “why” is strong enough, you can conquer any adversity. No matter what it is, as long as it’s strong enough to override every other cell in your body that screams for you to take the comfortable route, you won’t. When your […]

HOW TO ACTUALLY ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS AND DREAMS (or if you don’t know where you’re going you’ll never get there)

“Imagine there is a bank account that credits your account each morning with $86,400. It carries over no balance from day to day. Every evening the bank deletes whatever part of the balance you failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every cent, of course? Each of us has such a bank.

Being a modern woman is NOT easy. Heck, it’s messy… We’re supposed to be one thing at work, another thing at home. Work – life balance is almost a cliché by now.

Self-care for busy women is plan hard! I hear YOU! That’s A LOT! My schedule is crazy, and every time I keep it balanced, I […]

THE WORST CAREER MISTAKES TO AVOID (or how to stop wandering in the dark and make your dream career a reality)

Successful careers are complicated. It’s a world of unknowns with a huge risk of failure, not to mention that half of the time you don’t even know if it’s worth the fight or if you are making the worst career mistakes. In fact, you could be making worst career mistakes now without even knowing it. If you keep on without a change, you will join the club of job-ladder travelers with big dreams and good intentions who just couldn’t make the cut. But if you can identify the mess-ups now and pull up – you can be a part of […]

8 REASONS WHY REMOTE JOBS ARE YOUR FUTURE+ HOW TO GET ONE (or how to love your career, make more money without ever leaving the comfort of your home)

A decade or two ago, working from home or “remote jobs” might have consisted of answering customer service calls for a company a thousand miles away, doing a-mile-long-spreadsheet data entry for a huge medical conglomerate, stuffing envelopes (were any of those job “opportunities” legit?), or selling makeup out of a minivan. And there’s nothing wrong with that! Herbalife parties are something we can all look back on fondly (do they even exist any more?). But working from home doesn’t mean what it used to. Sure, you can still find jobs doing the kind of work we remember from the early […]


As a kid I really struggled with this “what do I want to do when I grow up” big question that grown-ups love to through at your corner. I’m guessing you probably had a few answers in mind; probably along the lines of “ballerina,” “astronaut,” “scientist,” or “dinosaur” if you were like me (hey, they said dream big!) After being told that was a fat chance, I answered “lawyer.” But let me tell you something – the more I answered the question, the more it got me thinking about what I really wanted to do when I grew up. And […]


There are many bits and pieces that fall into a full, fulfilling life and juggling all of them takes, well… a lot of juggling. Running around in circles trying to make sense of it all… and figure out how to reinvent yourself in the midst. Ough… exhausting! There’s always a sense of something being forgotten, even if the day’s tasks are completed, isn’t there? And let’s be honest, how often does your entire to-do list get handled? Not to mention the shortage of “me moments”, so you feel like you’re developing and growing as a person. There are days when […]
