My Ultimate Summer Reading List // CEO in Progress

My Summer Reading List

This summer I want to spend a lot of time with a book in my hand. My book wishlist on Amazon is getting ridiculously long, and one of my favorite things to do in the summer is sit in the hammock on a sunny day and get lost in a good book. Each year too, […]

6 Things You Must Do in Alpena

Since my parents have bought a cabin near Alpena a few years ago, we’ve been going up regularly in the summers. At first (and still), we end up spending most of our time around the house playing golf, tennis, going kayaking, taking long walks, and being in the sun as much as possible. It’s great […]

Boston Packing List // CEO in Progress

Boston Packing List for Summer

We’re headed to Boston so soon! I can’t believe this trip is already here, it’s something that we started planning last fall (apple picking day to be exact) and now that it’s here I can’t wait and I’ve already started packing!

Take Your Time: 4 Reasons to Stop Rushing Yourself to Success

Anyone who with an ounce of ambition has struggled with this at some point. You have an idea, a strategy, and plan, and at some point you just want it be complete.

Tulip Time in Holland Michigan Girls Weekend

I meant to post about this last week, but earlier this month we had a much needed girls weekend. Now that we’re spread all over the state with normal adult lives, it can be really tough to find the time to get together.

Look Whose Back, Back, Back, Back Again…

Why hello everyone! It’s been a while.¬†Like almost an entire month, yikes! I swear sometimes getting back in to the routine of writing seems more intimidating, so then I kept putting it off. I just kept over analyzing what I would write, the pictures I’d use, every tiny detail. But then I remembered one of […]

Victoria Beckham For Target - My Favorites // CEO in Progress

Victoria Beckham For Target – Spring Collection Favorites

I think my sister and I have been slightly obsessed with Posh spice for far too long. Ever since we tried to join The Spice Girls and watched their movie every single weekend, we’ve always thought of Victoria as one of our favorites. Over the years too she’s held a place in our hearts as […]

Spring Cleaning For Your Digital Life // CEO in Progress

Spring Cleaning for Your Digital Life

Everyone does spring cleaning at home. They go through old clothes, open the windows, reorganize the closets. But how often do you go through the same process for your work?

1 Photo A Day Challenge // CEO in Progress

1 Photo A Day Challenge – Let’s Do This

I recently saw something somewhere, great description, I know. It was a motivational quote about loving your life and all of that wonderful nonsense that is consistently shown on every platform of social media. The message is great and all, but sometimes it just doesn’t stick. This time however, it did, and I think I’m […]
