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, […]

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.

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.

My Power Outage Realization

Ugh this week has been absolutely rough. A huge windstorm hit Michigan this week and left the Metro-Detroit area with the 2nd worst power outage in DTE Energy’s history.

It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a book on the blog. I shared some of my all-time favorites, but a while since I gave a recommendation. Honestly, I’ve been really slacking in the reading department. I set a goal on Goodreads to reach 52 books this year, one a week, and I’ve only finished […]

Insecurity is a Waste of Time: How to Fight Off Insecurity & Self Doubt

Am I’m sitting here, currently laying on the ground trying to think of new ideas for this blog, I was having the hardest time trying to get ideas to stick.

Morning Routine: Why It's Important and How To Start One // CEO in Progress

Morning Routine: Why It’s Important and How to Start One

I used to never be a morning person. I would most of the time be late to work or school, struggling to get ready, prep for the day, or just make breakfast. It helps that now I have a more consistent routine than I did in school, but I’ve been able to completely turn my […]
