TCC Business Book Club: Shark Tales – How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business

Some of the books I select for TCC Book Club are current best-sellers, others are recommendations from friends, and others come from research. Shark Tales: How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business by Barbara Corcoran was one that came up in my search for entrepreneurial inspiration and information. I’m not going to lie—the current cover looks a little gimmicky. It’s a picture of … Continue reading TCC Business Book Club: Shark Tales – How I Turned $1,000 into a Billion Dollar Business

One Thing This Week: Almost 30 Podcast

I stared sharing One Thing This Week to highlight something, ANYTHING, that made me pause for more than 30 seconds, reflect, and use it as motivation to keep moving forward when sometimes all I want to do is lay on the couch and binge watch This Is Us (Season 1 – I am a very late adopter). I haven’t shared One Thing in a while, … Continue reading One Thing This Week: Almost 30 Podcast

One Thing This Week: Your College Does Not Define You

I’m sharing my One Thing on a Wednesday, because this week has been so long that it feels like it DEFINITELY should be the weekend by now.

One thing This Week: Started From the Bottom

This week was a whirlwind. You know the kind—the type that has you uncorking a bottle of pinot before your door finishes swinging shut behind you. The types that makes it realllly easy to say, “Maybe I’ll just skip the gym/laundry/meal prepping/homework/insert goal of choice here and sit on the couch and try again tomorrow.” Except that tomorrow turns into two days, into three, turns … Continue reading One thing This Week: Started From the Bottom

One Thing This Week: Use Your Words!

Things you don’t learn in college: how to deal with co-workers, how to request vacation time, how to handle weird job interviews where you’re offered beer. Things you do learn in college: new words. I met up with my old college roomie earlier this week, and somehow we got to talking about how without mandatory reading, homework and papers, it almost feels like our vocabulary … Continue reading One Thing This Week: Use Your Words!

Remember in middle school, when you had to complete a weekly current events assignment where you summarized a newspaper article for the class? You were learning to do research and getting informed!

Do Yourself a Favor: Take Your Vacation Days

I read something shocking the other day. According to a survey conducted by LinkedIn, 70% of professionals in the United States don’t take a vacation, even though they want to. Why, you may ask? Fear of falling behind was cited by more than half of all respondents. And among the highest offenders? Millenials—we’re doing this to ourselves! A 2016 study by Project: Time Off found … Continue reading Do Yourself a Favor: Take Your Vacation Days
