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
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
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
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
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
There are so many benefits to turning your passion projects into a side hustle. At it’s core, a side hustle is a way to make some extra money and while exploring your interests. It can be…View Post
Science tells us that your brain caps off it’s second and last growth spurt in your 20s as it rewires itself for adulthood. So anything we want to change about ourselves, should happen now. It’s a fact that 85% of life’s most transformative moments happen before you are 35, so now is the time to take control. As 30 starts looming over my head, I realize that there are certain things we’ve just got to lock down when it comes to adulting. I’ve pretty much given up on being able to fold a fitted sheet, but I think there’s still hope when it comes to skincare and productivity. Here are 6 habits that you need to start in your 20s…View Post
We’ve all been there. You are sitting in front of your computer dreading what you need to do next. Whether it’s talking to your boss about the raise that you know you deserve or forcing yourself to deal with the hassle of buying a new car – where do you even start with a daunting task? How do you find the confidence to tackle things that scare you? *Starts googling “how to find the confidence to…”View Post
I’ve been a dancer my entire life. I dabbled between traditional dance, figure skating, step, cheerleading, and even adult gymnastics but I never found anything quite like being in the studio. Even without formal training…View Post
