Face to Face

If you’re like me, people fascinate you. You love connecting with others and listening to individual life stories is nothing short of amazing. Hence why, nerves aside, I thoroughly enjoy interviews.

Prep for that R and R

Summer is around the corner, which means it’s almost vacation time! As much as I love a good trip, coming back to the office is no fun. Overflowing inbox, feeling behind on projects and an endless to-do list are enough to kill any post-vacation glow. So how do you make the best of...
