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! Our last big vacation was Jamaica for our honeymoon in the end of October, […]

I recently got a great opportunity to go to our distribution center in Wisconsin with a group of our team members for training.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Top Tips for Conference Calls // CEO in Progress

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 […]

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 […]

Consistency is KEY: Tips & Tricks to a Consistent Hustle

I know I’ve been guilty of it. I’ve worked really hard to get some project or idea off the ground, devoted hours right away to this new passion, then don’t pick it up for 6 whole months. Although it seems like it’s really productive, we’re better off consistently putting in a normal amount of effort and working towards […]
