I’m always investigating job fields that allow you to (mostly) work from home or work remotely. There are some people I’ve spoken with who have cobbled careers out of a few part-time remote gigs, combined. There are many companies that now allow their employees to work from home but it may not be every day […]Read More Work From Home Options
For some reason every time I take a vacation, I come back irritable and feeling depressed. You open up Instagram and see all the world travelers and the beautiful photos and you just wonder if there is a life after this. Vacations feel like just a taste of life. We all know the expression of […]Read More Vacation Starvation
I started this blog because I enjoy writing and actually like reading success stories of those people who have launched their own careers outside of the corporate world. It gives me hope that you can work for yourself and still “have a life” or at least a balance. Let’s face it though: it would be […]Read More Is It Too Late To Blog for Living?
One story that I remember reading about was the couple who dropped everything to move to the Caribbean and start a pizza delivery service – via their boat. They named the boat “Pizza Pi” and set it up in the US Virgin Islands. The captain of the boat, Sasha, graduated MIT and went to work […]Read More Pizza Pi Delivery Boat Interview
On my break for 4th of July I had some time to read The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK by Mark Manson. I think the book was an easy read and helpful in a time when I’m trying to not lose my crap at work. Not giving a f*ck is an art […]Read More The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*CK
I can’t be the only one fed up with the traditional workforce. In the past few weeks there have been several articles suggesting that things are a-changing. The Necktie A recent study published in NeuroRadiology suggested that wearing a necktie is bad for blood flow to the brain. I don’t think that neckties necessarily make […]Read More Sign of the Times – Office Edition
I think we’ve all had obstacles when it comes to actually leaving a job. You suffer through in the hopes that things will eventually get better and when you have a few of those good days, they seem to outweigh the bad. It’s when the rough patches become more frequent that you start to take […]Read More Top Quitting Obstacles
You’re sitting there, after your millionth trip to the office Keurig machine. Practically shaking from all the caffeine and your boss comes in and makes yet another borderline, HR questionable comment. Do you take it up the chain and just wait for her to retaliate (and you know, she will) or do you count down […]Read More What’s your Quitting Fantasy?
I’ve always been interested in why people choose the careers they do. I’ve fantasized about knocking on doors in fancy neighborhoods or in vacation towns and asking what people do for a living. Sort of like the “Millionaire Next Door” (which is one of my fave books). When I graduated college, I had student loans. […]Read More Does having a student loan impact career choice?
There were many times I thought that something that I loved to do would make an ideal career choice. I love to cook, the problem is cooking for me is fun when it’s just for friends and family with some friends to pitch in but cooking as a job? Hard stuff. It’s interesting that blogging […]Read More Turning a Hobby Into a Career
