Our brains are like sponges, and they tend to thrive when we challenge them and allow them to soak up information that we expose them to.
While many of us enjoy challenging ourselves and learning new skills, I think that it’s not always feasible with everyday life to expect yourself to enroll in classes you have to attend in-person or pay thousands of dollars for. [Read more…]
How to Get Started as a Freelance Writer
When I first started out down the self-employment path as a freelance marketer and writer a few years ago, I never envisioned how my journey would shape my life into what it is today.

How to Stop Wasting Your Energy on Toxic People
Lately I’ve been giving a lot of thought to toxic people and how we all deal with them. When I was younger, I think I definitely put up with a lot more toxic behavior than I would nowadays.
Labeling someone as “toxic” doesn’t necessarily mean they are emotionally abusive, but they do typically judge others, spread negativity, and have a gift for making you feel the exact same way after being in their presence.
A simple phone call or chat with them can leave you feeling heavy-hearted, stressed out, or in a foul mood. Who wants to feel like that?! [Read more…]
