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. You want that crossing-the-finish-line, hard-work-pays-off, sigh-of-relief feeling, but getting to that point seems like climbing a mountain. Lately I’ve been struggling with this […]

Organizing Your Ideas: Tools & Tips to Never Forget Something Amazing

Organizing your ideas is a never ending task. My mind is like a little circus with 100 different things going on at once, with everything coinciding and going in opposite directions all at the same time.

My Biggest Lessons From Blogging // CEO in Progress

My Biggest Lessons I’ve Learned From Blogging

I’m honestly still shocked with how far along on this journey I’ve travelled. I’ve never really put all my energy into this blog, but it’s been something that has been with me since I’ve graduated.

What's In My Bag? My On-The-Go Work Essentials // CEO in Progress

What’s in My Bag? My On-The-Go Work Essentials

I’ve shared before about my desk essentials, and although those can be similar to what I lug around with me each and every day, the stuff I carry with me is usually the most important. I hate heavy bags, too many times in college I would have to carry all that I needed for 12 hours […]
