Why are business accounts on Instagram so important?

Any tips for the workforce transition and how to find balance between work, school and finding your own passion outside of it all? If you’re anything like I was… I was itching by the end of my last year in college to get to “the real world” – I think it was more of the unknown of what laid ahead that had me itching, than actually wanting to be out of college. I wanted to “just know” what was going to happen post-college life.

I decided I needed to do a quick PSA about e-mail etiquette. It’s one of those things that I really struggled to learn as an early twenty something, and often found myself crying and screaming “come back, come back!” Whether its because I sounded dumb, for got something, or wrote something full of typos and emoji’s, I’ve probably made every e-mail mistake in the book! So here are 10 tips to perfect email etiquette for your twenties.

Over the last two weeks, the topic of personal branding has come up a lot for my audience. Whether you are seeking traditional employment, launching a side hustle, or taking the full leap into self employment a strong personal brand can be a major asset to reaching whatever your career goals are (whether it’s a promotion, your next client, or sale).

No matter how many coaches you work with or courses you take, I don’t think anything can really prepare you for the roller coaster that is your first course launch…. at least not for me. I just needed to go through the launch in order to learn these lessons, even if people said them to me in the past, they didn’t really sink in until I loved it.
I am a creative, but it took me a long time to realize and embrace this part of myself. When I was a little girl, I was constantly writing short stories and drawing. I loved it. Then fear kicked in and I stopped showing off my work. Fear has crippled me on and off for years. I would start painting, have a stack of finished or half finished work, that and decide to throw it away rather than display or show them off. I would start a blog, then stop after a month. I’ve been “working on” a book for the last nine years. I was terrified to have any of my work judged (heck if you go on The Confused Millennial’s Instagram page (formerly my personal page) you will barely see a single selfie out of fear of judgement!). Even in keeping up with this blog in it’s infancy, I am scared I will get writer’s block again and quit.
How do you get your photos or graphics from your computer to your phone to upload them on Instagram? Today I wanted to share this Instagram tip with you. There are a lot of ways to get your photo from your computer to Instagram! Something to keep in mind, is ideally you wouldn’t email it to yourself since you will lose some resolution this way and your photo could end up looking grainy. Keep in mind that each of these require a few steps, nothing will magically zap a photo to your Instagram (even apps that say they are integrated with Instagram and will “post to Instagram for you” still require you to go in and copy and push a button to get it onto Instagram at the time you want to post it due to Instagram’s policies.) So how can you get your photos from your computer to Instagram?

I was in college when a professor of mine recommended I read “Man’s Search for Meaning” by Victor Frankl. The book is about Frankl’s experience as a Jewish psychologist during World War II, being separated from his family, in the concentration camps as a prisoner.

Recently I had an encounter with someone I once looked up to. Shewas a thought leader in my industry and I was hoping to connect and learn from her (maybe even become friends! We seemed to have so much in common!). I was hoping to get on her radar and join her network… only to have all of it shattered when I realized she was full of insecurities, competitive thinking, showmanship, and crap, all veiled under the pretenses of “enlightenment” and “compassion”.

In business we write mission statements to show our consumers our heart and soul. A mission statements showcases that we are more focused on a movement than money. It brings employees together, it bonds us with our consumer, and it acts as a guiding light when we are tested or challenged.
When applying to college we write a “personal statement”, similar to a mission statement, but
It sounds so easy, but why is it so hard? I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started and stopped a project in my life. How many times I’ve given up. How many times I’ve let rejection or others criticism define me.
As a career and business coach I often get consultation requests in which I have prospective clients complete a questionnaire and almost unanimously, the clients talk about fear, uncertainty, or lack of clarity holding them back in their careers or businesses.
