I want to share with you a little story that happened to me this week about the power of self marketing.

The reasons to volunteer are obvious: to give back to your community and causes you care about. Luckily, there are some volunteer groups and options that are catered specifically to young professionals. These not only satisfy traditional reasons to volunteer but can provide other opportunities, too. I highly recommend them!
This post outlines five excellent ways for young professionals to volunteer. But first, what’s different and special about volunteering as a young professional?
The influence social media has had on millennials is unavoidable. It’s all around us and it’s very difficult to escape. With horror stories of young professionals getting fired from jobs because of content on their social media, it’s easy to feel threatened by its exposure potential. So, you can approach this one of two ways: maximize privacy and try to hide your platforms or embrace social media’s reality and power and put yourself out there. This post will show how to use social media to your advantage using the latter approach.
Side income is one of the greatest benefits of being a millennial. Focusing on a side-income in addition to my 9-5 job has helped me pay off my student loans faster and also supports me while I volunteer in Asia!
Here are ideas on how to make side income of your very own each month! You can also get access to my entire library of Side Hustler Resources, which has a monthly side income schedule in it!
More and more often, we hear about having a side hustle. They’re such a powerful tool for anyone that has more than one passion, and I think they’re particularly powerful for millennials. But… what are they? Why do we need one? And, how on earth can we make time for one?! We’re going to cover all of this here. So, grab a warm beverage, and let’s get to work.
Everyone has a different goal system that works for them. Personally, I’ve found that using a quarterly goal system works best (and I’ve tried a lot!). Quarterly goal periods- 3 months at a time- allow habits to truly build and substantial achievements to be made. But, 3 months isn’t so long that I lose motivation. Businesses track their goals quarterly, why should personal goals be treated any different?
With October right around the corner, I’m going through my final goals of 2016 (!! time really does fly!). Here’s why I encourage a quarterly personal goal system and the exact system I use to achieve my goals.
A personal website might seem like something for freelancers, photographers, or celebrities. But, in the ever-increasing digital world, everyone should have a personal website. A personal website is a place that you can display your talents, experience, and accomplishments. This platform will open doors for you that you can’t even imagine. The best part? You’re doing it your way, not a pre-structured way (cough cough LinkedIn).
I know that New Years is supposed to be the annual new beginning. However, I feel it far more in fall than in winter. I think after so many years of school starting in the fall, it still gives me that “new beginning” feeling. I fully embrace this feeling by taking this time of year to make some improvements and changes. Here are five ways I like to boost my career in the fall (and you can, too).
