Guest Post On Biz & Bubbly: 3 Ways To Stay Sane As A New Solopreneur

Guest Post On Biz & Bubbly: 3 Ways To Stay Sane As A New Solopreneur

Hey there! This week, I'm super excited to share with you a guest post I wrote for Biz & Bubbly last Friday! 

Biz & Bubbly is an amazing community for female entrepreneurs, run by Morgan Anderson (who is a total gem)! Morgan believes in bringing together women to share their knowledge and support each other in business. She writes her own blog posts and also provides an opportunity for other women to contribute their knowledge to the blog as well.

As an avid connector and believer that knowledge is power, I'm all about this model and am extremely grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the Biz & Bubbly blog! I don't talk a ton about entrepreneurship on my own blog (except for sharing stories from time to time with you), so this was a fun change of pace.

My Interview On Fitvista.com

My Interview On Fitvista.com

This week's blog post is a little different...

I'm very excited to share that I was recently interviewed by my super amazing friend, Michelle Cady, for her blog on Fitvista.com!

Michelle is a fantastic health coach based in NYC. She's a fellow Middlebury grad (although we didn't know each other in college) and took the leap to go to nutrition school and start her own coaching business after facing some major burnout in her finance career.

As her former-client-turned-friend, Michelle is someone whose work and vision I value immensely, so needless to say, I'm extremely grateful to be featured on her blog!

For the interview, Michelle asked me all sorts of questions about millennials, stress at work, and how to prioritize self-care even when things are a bit nuts at the office. Plus we got into some fun questions around health and fitness too! You won't want to miss it!

3 Ways To Avoid The Summer Slump At Work

3 Ways To Avoid The Summer Slump At Work

Work and summer. Two words we really wish we didn’t have to say in the same sentence.

I mean, what happened to the days of actual summer? Like when we were growing up and summer felt like a break from our normal daily lives. None of this being a working adult all year round business. Just thinking about it sounds relaxing, doesn't it?

Failing vs Failure

Failing vs Failure

The recent opening of the Museum of Failure in Sweden inspired me to pick up the subject of failure, how we perceive it and why it's actually important. The head curator of the museum is quoted in the New York Times saying, "The purpose of the museum is to show that innovation requires failure. If you are afraid of failure, then we can't innovate."

9 Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me In My Early 20s

Want to hear a crazy fact? One that I can’t quite seem to really wrap my head around yet?

I’m turning 29 next week.

I know what you’re thinking: you’re not THAT old... Lot’s of people have turned 29 and continue to do so every day.

Yes, that’s totally true. And honestly, it’s not even that I think I’m super old. What I’m most perplexed by is how quickly my 20s seem to have gone.

Do You Get The Sunday Scaries?

Do You Get The Sunday Scaries?

It's Sunday morning.

You wake up after a fun night out with friends. You snuggle a bit deeper under your covers thinking you might drift back to sleep. Then all of a sudden your eyes pop open... Effffff it's Sunday!

Before you know it you are overcome with anxiety about the work week ahead of you. At the time, Friday night and Saturday seemed like they would last forever. But here you are on Sunday morning with less than 24 hours between you and your desk.
