My top five blogging tips that I shared during my Blogging for Business Workshop at the Social School Calgary.
This year has been a crazy ride. Rather than saying it had it ups and downs (like every year truly does) I’ll just say this: 2018 was a challenge. I wasn't sure that was the right word to describe my year because sometimes the idea of something being “challenging” comes off as negative - and I'm not saying this year was bad. Was it hard? Yes. Was it also rewarding? Absolutely.
Nothing is worse than taking a bad photo on a trip that may happen only once in a lifetime. When I thought about it more, I realized that every moment in life is "once in a lifetime" and that exploring where I am right now is just as important.
If you are like me and don't know how to stop overscheduling and adding to your neverending to-do list, why is it so hard to stop? Here are some questions you should ask yourself if you constantly overcommit your time.
I feel completely overwhelmed by things, and things to do, and I want to learn how to live with less. Here is how I am using minimalism as a way to make more time for the things that matter most.
My goal is to scratch beneath the surface of basic money management and expose the dark side. You know - the things that don’t really scream dinner conversation. Here are a few things I’m saving for that might make you avoid eye contact at the dinner table.
One of my resolutions for 2018 was to learn to live with less. Since I'll be starting a new job in a few weeks, I thought my first big project should be cleaning out my closet. When your closet is overflowing with things that you don’t wear, are worn out, and no longer fit your style, it becomes difficult to define your style and shop smart.
Cleaning out your closet is time consuming and easy to put off. If you do a few extra things to prepare, you will have a much better outcome in way less time. My closet clean out was long overdue, which is why I wanted to strategize to make the most of my time.
My motto for making big life choices (and for life in general) is be extraordinary. That's how I knew that I absolutely had to live abroad at least once in my life, even if it was just for a short amount of time. It was terrifying, and that's exactly why I had to do it.
Right around this time of year there is a battle between those who think having a fresh start in the new year is bogus, and those who really believe in and need that hypothetical reset button. Life moves quickly and it can be hard to take the time to check in, remember what we really want and make sure our life is heading in the right direction.
