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. I’m guessing you’re a lot like this (otherwise I’m probably going to seem insane from this point onward) so […]

Monday Motivation: Organization // CEO in Progress

Monday Motivation: Organization

Happy Monday everyone! This month I’m focusing all about spring cleaning, and there’s no better way to start that trend than with a #MondayMotivation all about organization. I don’t understand how people can function in messy situations. It’s just too much distraction for me and I instantly feel flustered and overwhelmed. For me, I need […]

I’m so ready for spring! It’s been a rough winter, just felt like it was never going to end. It’s finally time for some sunny weather, longer nights, and sundress. I want to use this month as a time to restart, refresh and renew, so what better theme than Spring Cleaning?! It’s the time of the year […]

Favorite Tools I Use At Work to Keep Me Motivated & Organized // CEO in Progress

Favorite Tools I Use At Work for Motivation & Organization

My job requires me to wear a lot of different hats. No, I’m not a hat model (ha!) but I do have a lot of varying responsibilities and projects I’m constantly jumping between. The only way sometimes to stay sane is with a little help, well and wine too, but that’s always after work. Honestly […]

Things To Do Before You Start Your Job Search

Starting a job search is really, really tough. My last semester senior year I applied to 50 jobs for after graduation. I eventually found one, but looking back I had a lot of really big mistakes that I could’ve easily avoided. For example, one time I applied to a job with a cover letter that named […]

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. It’s something that’s grown, adapted, changed, gone off course just as I have. Honestly I’m struggling to remember why I decided […]

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 […]

Top Tips for Conference Calls

With my new job I’m making a ton of conference calls. We’re constantly in online meeting with other offices and vendors, discussing new products, launches, and issues that affect everyone. I usually have about 6 conference calls a week, so it’s felt a bit like being thrown in to the mix. It’s something I was […]

I’m so excited, we just booked our tickets for our Colorado trip this fall. We’re going to drive around Colorado for a week enjoying the fall colors and trying to see more of the state. I used Kayak to book our tickets and I’m so glad that I did. I put an alert for the […]

My Power Outage Realization // CEO in Progress

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. Guess who was one of the lucky 700,000 people without power?! This girl, right here. Obviously I have not been alone in this struggle, but with temperatures dropping […]
