Millennials get a bad reputation for just about everything, but one place that we can certainly do better is with money management. Choke it up to our desire for endless avocado toast breakfasts or weeknight Seamless deliveries, but common money mistakes can keep us from achieving financial security, planning for our futures and being resilient to unexpected occurrences. Here are the biggest financial culprits:View Post
Let’s be real, who doesn’t have some version of “be healthier”, “lose weight” or “get stronger” on their New Year’s Resolution list. Well, the bad news is that writing it on your list is the easy part. The hard part is actually getting off the couch and doing something. When you haven’t exercised in a while, getting started is tough. Here are some tips to get you back into the fitness game…View Post
If you’re looking for a little inspiration at this pivotal time in your life, then look no further. These TED Talks are ones that I turned to when I’m feeling a loss of inspiration, creativity…View Post
I finally made it. Can’t believe it, but I actually finished a work out program and did 12 weeks of BBG. As a serial quitter, this is a huge accomplishment. I want to be clear that I made many modifications to the online program and made this work for me. If you want to learn more about what BBG is and where to find it, I recommend you read this post. I don’t want to bury the lead, so here are answers to all of your questions including my results, if I would recommend the program, and what modifications I made…View Post
What would you do if you had all the time in the world? Read more? The harsh reality of adulthood is that we rarely get time to read leisurely and as much as we want to – it usually doesn’t happen. Audible knows this and hence the billion dollar podcast/audiobook industry was born.
I was also the victim of $14.95 monthly fee in order to check off my “read 12 books this year” resolution until I figured out how to get those books (legally) for free….View Post
Sorry Shondra, the ‘Year of No’ is a real thing (that’s a witty reference to Shondra Rhimes “Year of Yes” book for my non-literary friends.) Often on the weekends, I’m stressing about the projects that I need to complete in order to be prepared for the upcoming week. When my friends want to kick it and have fun, I am hyperaware of the things that I could be doing in order to be productive over relaxed. The balance between overwork and productively is a tough line to straddle and I find myself having to say no more often then I would like to in order to be truly present in my downtime….View Post
You’ve heard people rave about going to spin class. Whether it’s Flywheel or SoulCycle, Cyc or Cyclebar you know that these classes work – but you are terrified to go. Maybe you’ve been scorn from spin classes in the past or you heard of how painful they can be when you first spinning. I’m here to tell you it’s really not that bad. If you go in prepared and knowing what to expect you can have a pain free ride and dare I say it – even have fun? For those who are looking for a different kind of cardio or hate running (raising my hand)…View Post
There are certain milestones in your life like getting ready for high school, entering college, or finding a job, that seem like the most important things in the world. You are worried about waking up for your 8 AMs, getting a good grade on your midterm and ultimately finding a job that will be both self-satisfying and financially stable. A big part of who you are as an adult, begins during your transformative years in college and there are so many…View Post
When I started getting into fitness, I knew that I wanted to invest in things that would get me excited. I started with new sports bras, new leggings, and an overall new workout wardrobe –…View Post
Times are a-changing and people aren’t staying at the same job for 40 years and then retiring with a chorus of “She’s a Jolly Good Fella” and a sheet cake. A new wave of employees are shaking up the way employment works. In fact, Bankrate found that over half (51%) of millennials have a “side hustle” and that makes total sense. Here’s why: whether your goals are to gain financial freedom, pay off student loans, or just build multiple revenue streams, there are so many benefits to diversifying your income. Single points of failure are never a good idea – maybe thats why we have two kidneys, two eyes, and two ears.
On average, about 10 times a week I get messages from followers who are interested in starting their own blog, side business, or being an influencer. I LOVE inspiring the hustle and realize that I get so many questions that this warrants it’s own post. I’ve been doing this for six years and there are so many things that I wish someone had told me before I got started…View Post
