Sydney Life: Chapter Two

A lot has changed after two years abroad living in Australia. I’m starting to say stuff like “fortnightly” instead of “bi-weekly” and I don’t struggle to understand other accents (most of the time anyway). I loved Sydney the day from the day I first arrived, but now I can say that I know Sydney. ItContinue reading “Sydney Life: Chapter Two”

Some Thoughts on Getting Paid

I see a lot of blog posts about why you shouldn’t work for free, but I think that society undervalues the volunteer at times. This post isn’t meant to dismiss situations where you should be charging for your time, but rather speak up for the role of the volunteer. My mum taught me the importanceContinue reading “Some Thoughts on Getting Paid”

Hello 2012: Some New Year (sorta) Resolutions

I’m not big on New Year resolutions, but here are a few things I’d like to work on this year. This year I want to spend more time outside.

That professional part ofContinue reading “My 30 Day Challenge Blog Project”

While selling dirt to landscapers and homeowners doesn’t seem related to the world of online communications, I still felt that my time spent thereContinue reading “Lessons Learned from Playing in the Dirt”

Moving to Australia

I believe in the importance of setting goals, always looking at the big picture and trying new things on a regular basis. I think it’s a combination of these values that is driving me to move to Australia after I graduate this year. I had the opportunity to study abroad in Australia for a semesterContinue reading “Moving to Australia”

Distracted by my Own Breath

Last Friday I had the opportunity to hear Artie Isaac give a presentation at The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business. It was a talk on leading with your heart for a group of first year MBA students. Obviously, I’m not part of that group but there were some extra seats so I quicklyContinue reading “Distracted by my Own Breath”
