MINISODE | How Creativity Can Make Your Life Better and Why It's Important

9/21/2018
More
Today's mini-sode we're talking about creativity and how it can make your life better. Creativity was a topic that came a lot throughout my interview with Eric Lee of Left Field Labs both in the workplace and in life. I think most people either label themselves as "creative" or "not creative" but in reality, everyone is creative in their own individual way. Creativity is one of the most important characteristics of being human. A creative mind can enrich your life, making life so...

More
Today's mini-sode we're featuring a compilation of the best parts of people's days! One question I ask every guest on the Day in the Life podcast is "what is the best part of your day."

8/24/2018
More
Today's mini-sode we're talking about budgeting! I was not always a budgeter, that's for sure. In fact, I really didn't start budgeting until about 6 years ago, when I was 24 years old. There are plenty of ways to budget: some people prefer using apps, others prefer using a specific spreadsheet. One thing that I've learned as an adult is that it's extremely important to plan ahead and budget. Budgeting is what allowed me to start my own business and get ahead at life. In this...

Today's mini-sode we're talking about self motivation! I've always been a self motivated person.

Many people have asked me what's kept me motivated to start my own business or even this podcast. My...

Today's mini-sode we're talking about asking for help. Yes, I know how hard it is. But we have to start asking for help otherwise you're going to hit burnout (please, learn from my mistakes). I've always had trouble asking for help, even from a young age. I've always felt this pressure to never ask for help, almost like it was a failure or weak to enlist someone else to help me, no matter what the task was. It's difficult to ask for help because we fear rejection. We fear being seen as...
