Pretty much immediately after I wrote last weeks post, “3 Painstaking Truths in Life & How to Overcome Them”, where I touch on some of the most common advice we get and how it can often lead to perfection paralysis, I was hit with a full blown case of writers block. 

I’ve been trying to have my posts planned out at least one week in advance… But here I sit Monday morning at 7:45 am writing this trying to get it up today (gotta stick to that schedule!).

5 Questions To Figure Out Your Passion In Life

Everybody says to “follow your passion” but is passion a concrete thing? Can millennials classify it as one thing.

I’d been working and gaining experience since I was 16 in a variety of different fields.

There was freelance photography, working on higher education political initiatives, marketing, but struggled to figure out my dream career when  I came across a book called The Art of Work*.

For about a year, I grew my email list using a basic subscription box in my blog’s sidebar and an opt-in box on the homepage. Overtime, I added content upgrades to the bottom of my posts (after reading a post, it’s the clickable link where people can enter their email to download a worksheet or checklist that adds even more value to a blog post).

6 Tips To Work Smarter, Not Harder

TRUTH: I’d much rather work smarter, not harder. I see so many people running around saying how “busy” they are, but honestly, I don’t want to be busy.

When we take the idea of “working hard” it feels like we are automatically condemning ourselves in a tug of war between happiness and the hustle… no thank you. I think the two should be integrated, not battling it out for the limelight.
