Things I’ve Stopped Caring About

I’m not old, but I’m old enough. Old enough to realize that life is short, my time is valuable, and quality counts in regards to everything. There’s so many things I used to waste so much energy and effort over, that over the years have just grown too consuming to hold on to. I’ve cut […]

The Magic of Thinking Big // CEO in Progress

Book Review: The Magic of Thinking Big

I just finished The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz and I’m so glad I finally decided to pick it up. It’s been one that has been in my book wish list on Amazon for forever and finally I bought it and gave it a chance. I also had it on my summer reading […]

Treat Yo Self: The Importance of Splurging & Kate Spade

Okay for anyone that knows me, I’m not one to spend a lot of money on myself. I’d rather use it for travel or for things for our house, not really clothes. Not saying I don’t love shopping, but I’m usually really responsible with how I spend it and work to find good deals. However, […]

How to Get Out of A Slump // CEO in Progress

Getting Out Of A Slump

It’s pretty common to fall into a slump. Things just aren’t working out, no motivation, no direction, we’ve all been there. I feel like I’m finally on the tail end of one now. It was hard for a while to figure out where I wanted to go, but with a few little pushes in the […]

Wanderlust: How I Organize Travel Ideas & Recommendations

I was just looking through Pinterest and planning 100 different vacations (typical!) and thought that how I keep all these ideas organized might be a helpful thing to share. I hate it when you get a great recommendation of somewhere to go to, but once you’re at the location you forget what it was. People […]

Shine Like a Star in Your Interview: STAR Question Prep & Examples

Interviewing is tough, there’s so much stress leading up to it and nerves that kick in during it, even if you have the right thing to say, it doesn’t always come out right. That’s why prepping for an interview is crucial. There were a few times when I didn’t prepare for the meeting and wound […]

Kayak Camping on the Huron: My Beginner’s Tips & Packing List

This 4th of July we wanted to just relax and stay at home. We love going up north and hanging with friends or watching the fireworks at my parent’s cabin, but the dealing with traffic did not seem like a good way to spend our time off. Plus this summer is so packed with long […]

Summertime in Boston: My Travel Must-Do’s

I love writing about our adventures after the fact. Every time I do I get to relive all of the fun and remember my favorite spots and things we did. This latest adventure took us to Boston, and it was the first time traveling longer distance with our favorite couple to visit a friend from […]

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 // CEO in Progress

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 […]
