Learning to count and preparing for a year of insight

This last week I completed 14 weeks worth of Coursera courses in business analytics and data analysis. My brain is fried. But in the tasty kind of way. This is my special kind of fun. I take Coursera courses the way other people might watch reality TV: mindlessly, indulgently, and often without discretion or concern … Continue reading Learning to count and preparing for a year of insight

I’m getting an MBA for less than $2,500 and so can you

And you can't use all the different methods on … Continue reading How to prioritize your goals to maximize results

A Year of Manifesting Cool Shit: The WOOP Strategy

One day after I created my "Amazing Shit I'm Manifesting Before 30" list, I got invited to fulfill #6: I am employed as a part-time Health Coach. Once I start my first official day of work, I can cross that off the list. Not a bad start. I write these manifestations in the present tense. … Continue reading A Year of Manifesting Cool Shit: The WOOP Strategy

How I used diet to (almost) completely eliminate my debilitating menstrual cramps

Today marks a HUGE success for me. Women's health is an issue I am SO passionate about because too many women needlessly suffer every month, just like how I have for the last 14 years. Let's chat period health for a minute. It's not talked about nearly enough. Since my first period at 15, I … Continue reading How I used diet to (almost) completely eliminate my debilitating menstrual cramps
