4 Life Lessons from Being a Working Professional
by Tiffany Young - Mar, 2015
For most people, lessons happen along the way. It’s what you do with those tidbits of vital information that is most important. Just when we think we’ve learned something, life comes along and shows us there’s more. I recently reflected on a few life lessons I learned last year and, to my surprise, most were connected to work. I thought, how could that be? It was true. The things I learned about relationships, finances, and...
7 Reasons Why You Need to Think Like a Business Owner Throughout Your Career
by Michelle Kerrigan - Mar, 2015
I recently sat in on a staff meeting, and, afterwards, one of the team’s former colleagues dropped by to say hello. This colleague had moved on to a new company, and was very unhappy with her choice. She kept voicing her negative opinion loudly, which included warning everyone to avoid her current employer at all costs. No matter what you think, this type of behavior is never a good idea.

by Dawn Lennon - Mar, 2015
I’ve done it and I suspect you have too. I’ve asked myself these exasperating questions: Who am I really? Am I the person others think I am–in my family, at work, among my friends?

The word yoga can be derived from two root words, according to Wikipedia. The first is “yujir,” which means to yoke, and the second is “yuj samadhau,” meaning to concentrate. Prior to writing this blog, I knew nothing about the origins of yoga, knowing only that it consisted of, seemingly, uncomfortable and difficult poses that helped practitioners become stronger and more flexible. Like most endeavors however, I suppose consi...
To launch a new job, you need a good plan
by Beverly Jones - Mar, 2015
Are you looking forward to your first day in a different job? Or maybe you're preparing to welcome a new colleague? My worst first day was 30 years ago, but I still remember it vividly. I was a few years out of law school and shifting to a new firm in the nation's capital. The title on my business card read "partner," instead of "associate," in deference to the clients I was able to bring along with me. Well in advance...

You would never buy a car without first researching different models and prices, right? Nowadays it’s unlikely you’d even leave the house without first looking up reviews and directions to wherever you’re going.
