Girl, Do You Have Yours?

Nothing I say in this post is new, but sometimes we forget and we need to be reminded. As women, we go through different stages in life that change and shape us on a daily basis. Whether you just had a baby, work 12 hours a day, run your own business or just went through a…

The LinkedIn Factor

If one of your 2017 goals is to find a career-building job, just know that you are not alone. The world is changing, and so are the workplace dynamics. Like most people, I’m not a big fan of the job hunting process. First of all, trying to find a job that even matches your current goals…

Money Management 101

Let’s face it, talking about money makes people uncomfortable. At work, church, wherever. Money is a touchy subject that requires a whole lot of caution to discuss.
