{Remaining} 2017 Reading List

According to Dave Ramsey, the average millionaire reads one non-fiction book every month. Besides that fact, I’ve decided that I need to soak up some knowledge given my new work situation.

What is a “General Manager” anyway?

When I was a student at The Florida State University, I applied for a scholarship and had to meet with the committee as part of the application process.

Now, this tweet may lead you to believe that I was actually having … Continue reading Identifying Burnout

A new job

I’ve always been about balance. When I was little, I balanced school and homework with ballet classes and performances. In high school, I balanced college classes, dance and student government (plus some). And in grad school, I balanced insane classes with internships and a long-distance relationship.
