The Girl With Endless Personalities: Am I Adaptable Or Just Batsh!t Crazy?

The girl with endless personalities: Am I adaptable or just batsh!t crazy?

Whenever I’m approached with the job interview question “What are your positive characteristics?”, I always include the word “adaptable”.

Since I can remember, I have been part of many different friend groups. The dancers, the jocks, the drama kids, the surfer dudes… I would float around and whenever I got sick of one group, I would just scoot over to the next lunch table.

This is how I would describe my social life now. It’s like a hodge podge of random people with all types of different hobbies, careers, and personalities. Some I met while playing flag football, some I met from past romances, some I literally met from Craigslist but that is an entirely different tale. Basically, no two friends are the same.

The Best Books For Women Entrepreneurs in 2017

The Best Books For Women Entrepreneurs In 2017

I am a book fanatic. I’ve never understood the appeal of Kindle because there really is nothing like the smell and feel of a new book in your hands. With that being said, I have become somewhat of a book hoarder. I have this lifelong dream of owning a huge library one day where I can sneak off to and write all day long. For this reason, I have been on a hunt to find the best books for women entrepreneurs so that I can fill my dream library with valuable content.

This year, I started a virtual book club to keep myself and my fellow women entrepreneurs on track.  I think it’s so important to read every day in order to get those creative juices flowing, no matter what field of work you are in. For those who have not joined our Facebook book club, I have compiled a list of awesome books for women entrepreneurs:

Generosity and Networking: My Day with the Art of Charm Guys

Generosity and Networking: My Day With The Art of Charm Guys

Up until July 27th, I thought I was a kickass networker. Because I can talk to a brick wall, I thought I had all the tools I needed to make connections and get ahead in business. Ummmmmmm, that’s a joke.

After my second trip to the CreativeLive studio in San Francisco, I was (once again) blown away by the amount of knowledge I was given. My networking game was WAY off and I had no idea. Jordan Harbinger, AJ Harbinger, and Johnny Dzubak were the teachers of our class, The Art of Networking. They are the masterminds behind the Art of Charm and have an amazing podcast that you should check out right this second.

Catching Criticism: The Life of a Creative

Catching Criticism: The Life Of A Creative

Last week, I ran into a friend that brought up my writing… in a negative way. We had fallen out of touch and when the subject came to up in conversation, she explained that she didn’t even know me anymore. She went on to claim that nothing I have been writing sounds like it came from me and that she has discussed it with my friends behind my back.

As you can imagine, I was a little speechless… I mean, I knew that there would be gossip floating around once I began this journey but hearing it from one of my “best friends” really cut me to the core.

  • Today my Papa passed away... I'll always miss the days you showed up to our house with women's sunglasses on and awkwardly hummed whenever it got quiet. It saddens me that I couldn't say one last goodbye before I moved back, but at least we got to be roomies for a while. Roll tide and I'll see you again one day ❤️
  • When you don't know the words to the song so you just start yawning. #weddingcrashers #amber #quickpitcheck
  • Missing home and these two turds. Thank you for teaching me that Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch is actually @markwahlberg. #mindblown
  • In 2017, I will have crossed 5 countries off my bucket list, quit my desk job, started my own business, made it to my dog's first birthday without checking into a mental institution, launched a blog that has opened up some incredible doors, and had the opportunity to sit down with a number of influential public figures. I have no idea what 2018 will bring but I can't wait to find out. ❤️
  • Keep your friends close and your bitches closer
  • When the hell did my baby brother get so tall.... Thanks for nerding out with me in @tulummexico!
