In a world of binge-worthy TV shows and hours of social media scrolling, picking up a book is on the backburner for most of us. However, by neglecting to read, we’re missing out on important benefits for […]

Feeling stagnant? You’re not alone. Even the most successful people feel stuck sometimes. However, what sets them apart from the rest is their ability to lean into a growth mindset. What is a growth mindset, you ask? Exactly what it sounds like! It’s the idea that the skills you have (or don’t have) aren’t permanent, and your abilities […]

Wondering where the year went? So are we! We’re officially down to about 2 months left in 2021. And at this point in the year, we all have a decision to make: Option #1: Coast through the rest of the year and wait to get re-motivated during New Year’s Resolution time.

The sun is up earlier, the weather’s warmer, and the kids aren’t ready for bedtime. (It’s still light outside and they’d rather be playing kickball or hide and seek until dark). Coworkers and friends are leaving for vacation, camping trips, taking Friday afternoons off, and it’s getting more and more difficult to turn down chips and salsa at […]

Everyone wants to make a good impression, and business image is no different. As much as we all want and strive to focus on the fact that “It’s what’s inside that counts” (as we definitely should), first impressions are important—especially in business.

Not only is spring in full swing, but it’s April … and April is Financial Literacy month!

Bringing up debt, budgeting, credit scores, […]

Spring Cleaning Your Mindset

How many “spring cleaning” posts have been rolling through your feed the last few weeks? Home organization, cleaning, chores, etc. … we’re all very focused on ways to spring clean the “things” around us, but what about the parts inside us? When was the last time you took a good look at how the inner […]

A January slump in reaching your goals is real-talk. We’re now almost through January, and for those who made New Year’s resolutions, you might be wondering where that motivation went (or what those resolutions even were) and where to even start in reaching your goals. It’s so easy to get caught up in the moment […]
