Jun 26th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyle

Eight o’clock. That was my bedtime during a two week vacation to Florida a year ago. During my waking hours, I sunbathed, swam and ate ice cream, but mostly I stressed out about my job, conversations with clients and a workload I didn’t want. I think I fell asleep so early each night because my […]

Jun 20th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyle

I work all the time. I don’t earn money every second I’m working, but I’m pretty much working around-the-clock. I wake up, make coffee & sit down to answer e-mails, work on my blogs & update my website. Then, I do my money-making work, which basically takes all day, other than when I stop to […]

Mar 6th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyle

“Because I Said So” and Other Phrases You Shouldn’t Hear In Adulthood Last week, I wrote an article for a client. For a little background, this client was listed on a website I used to write for. Pay is extremely low and I worked for them once upon a time to fill in budget gaps […]



Lindsay Pietroluongo – A Bride’s Worst Nightmare Turned Creative

Feb 28th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyle

A Bride’s Worst Nightmare Turned Creative The “Trash the Dress” fad started a decade ago in Las Vegas (where, ironically, it’s probably really hard to not trash your wedding dress), and is now all the rage for out-of-the-box wedding photography. Brides purposely “ruin” their gown with mud, paint, water, fire, pizza sauce… Why? For the […]

Twelve dollars. That’s how much money I spend on my gym membership: $12 every two weeks. It’s not as much money as the really nice gyms, but it’s much more than the really cheap gyms, and it’s way too much to spend on something I never, ever use. Except for yesterday. I did go to […]

Jan 16th, 2014 | By | Category: Lifestyle

“The 4-Hour Workweek” by Timothy Ferriss has been laughing at me from my office bookcase ever since I bought it two years ago.
