Working for Yourself Is…Interesting

I talked about starting The Gig Life awhile back. It’s been a little over six months and definitely has had its ups and downs.   A few questions I really enjoy from people: So, are you still unemployed? You’re not working, right? How’s it going? :look of pity: How the heck do you even find business? You’re just doin’ your own… Read more →

Let Them In.

Knock knock. Who’s there? THE PEOPLE THAT LOVE YOU, MOTHA FUCKA.   I hope you weren’t expecting a clever “knock knock” joke up there. I really just wanted the chance to say “mutha fucka” on my blog.   But think about it for a minute. On a scale of one-to-ten, how great are you at letting the people that love… Read more →

Work No Longer Defines Me.

I wrote about learning to disconnect and then I revealed the beginning feelings of starting a life of freelance work rather than full-time, in-the-office, work-for-someone else work. And they share some common themes. It’s a new way of life and, although it’s not always easy, it’s rewarding in ways I didn’t expect.   I’ve caught myself talking about this subject a… Read more →

All communication must continue to flow as easily as possible. Restroom breaks aren’t even allowed.   2. Send the same semi-racy photos that they are sending to a dude. Because you need someone that… Read more →

Adulting: How to Host a Rad Party

You’re an adult. Stop throwing college parties. I’ve thrown together some super basics to make sure your guests don’t feel like they’ve arrived to a campus house smelling like last week’s beer pong tournament (although, I’m not against hosting an adult beer pong tournament. For real. Can we do that soon?)   Include all of the needed details on the… Read more →

If You’re Struggling Through the Holidays

You are not alone.   Naturally, we all feel different about the holidays as we grow older. When we were young, our world was filled with magic at every turn. Glistening snow with a perfect texture for snowman-building, The North Pole filled with elves feverishly working to build our toys, playing in the basement with our cousins during family parties. Worry-free… Read more →

Know When to Fold ‘Em

It’s cliche to bring Kenny Rogers into this, but c’mon. We all know that beard has magic powers.   I’ve been spending a lot of time talking to people about what makes them happy. Career-wise, personal life-wise, and just in general. I’ve talked to people in their twenties and thirties, mostly. So, yeah, it’s a bit skewed. But common themes… Read more →
