The Power of Writing Things Down

When’s the last time you wrote someone a letter, on nice stationary, until your hands cramped? We’re willing to bet not since 7th grade when you passed notes to your best friend between classes with the final sentence being “write back soon or else!”. Communication since the turn of the dial-up internet has been all about sending quick emails. Then, when cell phone providers started giving everyone free texts, it became about quick texts. Getting a call from someone these days feels more like a threat than a welcomed treat. If calling is almost extinct, then writing with a pen […]

Those YouTubers wouldn’t be making millions of dollars if it weren’t for their audience that values and respects their opinions and see them as experts in some sort of capacity.

How to Get Anything You Want (In Life and Business)

Yikes, it’s so hype-y to say, but there’s really a strategy to get anything you want in life and business. It’s often an overlooked part of our day, yet it’s always the small things that get us, right? You just have to work long and hard for whatever you want. Period. There’s no magic bullet or secret sauce for achieving any goal. Olympians train for 6 hours a day, 6-7 days a week, for 10 years (or longer) before trying for the Olympic games. CEO’s work 7-days a week for 30 years. If I want to have nice hair all […]
