On the dating apps, the first weed out metric for me is if the person is a good text message conversationalist. My logic: if you can clearly convey thoughts, feelings, emotions AND tone in a text, the probability you effectively use your words in real life is also pretty high. Welp, as we all find […]

“I never want to run my own business.” I used to say those words. Regularly. Crazy enough, I now run two…and manage to half-way maintain a full-time job… I’d say that’s a lesson in never saying never. But a couple weeks ago, I was sitting in a training program at my law firm regarding a […]

Last week, I hosted an event together with the owners of Blushbaby Lash & Makeup Studio in ATL. It was AMAZING. The program was called “No Need To Quit Your Day Job to Pursue Your Daydream,” and it was a panel discussion with five badass boss babes in the city who have started their own […]

I really try to minimize risk, but somehow, I convinced myself that cutting my own hair with scissors in my tiny NYC studio apartment one Sunday night was the right idea. I was only 8 months into my very first Corporate America gig, but the pressure of daily assimilation and code switching was beginning to […]

Boundaries are Healthy & Appropriate It’s true. Some jobs and professions are inherently more stressful than others.

There are so many free or low cost resources available out there. And although podcasts are my new favorite way to learn about the most up-to-date business thangs (you can read about my go to podcasts here), nothing can quite beat the depth of knowledge you can gain from books.

I might be the last person on the planet to jump on the podcast bandwagon. I took a poll for podcast recommendations a few years back, but I never actually opened the app on my phone and took the plunge. Until recently. When I decided I wanted to start an online business, I knew I […]

I wasn’t always a super confident, put together lawyer bae with a master plan. Much the opposite. In fact, for the vast majority of my career to date, I was an extra nervous, super anxious, poorly dressed, frumpy mess of a junior attorney.
