    I Wish Someone Told Me This in My Twenties

    I Wish Someone Told Me This in My Twenties

    Do you ever look back and wish you had a do-over?
    You dissect your actions and wonder how things could have played out differently, if only you knew then what you know now. But, give yourself a break because hindsight is always 20/20.
    I don’t like to spend time on regret. It’s a waste of mental and emotional energy and keeps you in the past. I want to live in the present.
    That said, there is one thing that if I could go back and time and do differently—I would.
    I can’t time travel, but I can do better than that. I can share my experience with you and help you change your life for the better!
    I wish someone told me this when I was in my twenties…

    Dealing with Co-Workers You Don’t Like

    Dealing with Co-Workers You Don’t Like

    Do you have a work BFF?
    Your ride-or-die on impossible projects. That person who sends you hilarious memes during the most painful meetings. The one you share the best and worst parts of your personal life with.
    They make everything about the workday better, don’t they?
    But, what about the flip side? Is there someone on your team that you can’t stand?
    They never do what they say they’re going to do. Everything they say feels like a personal attack. Just the sound of their voice chiming in on a conference call gets on your nerves.
    We all have them.
    Here’s the brutal truth. You’re always going to work with people you don’t like. It doesn’t matter what you do for a living. It doesn’t matter where you work. It’s a universal truth that unites us all.
    There are tricks to help you deal with these people. Let’s have an honest talk about dealing with co-workers you don’t like.

    How to Ask Your Boss for Help

    How to Ask Your Boss for Help

    You’re bold, ambitious, and extremely capable. But, sometimes, you need help.
    Whether it’s a workload that’s pushed you beyond your limits or a problem that seems impossible to solve, there are times when the best option is to ask your boss for help.
    Asking for help goes against our nature as Type-A corporate badasses! It feels uncomfortable. Awkward. Intimidating. Mortifying. But, there’s no need to feel ashamed or embarrassed about it!
    It’s time for a reframe on this topic. Because there are times when asking your boss for help is a clear sign of your strength—not the weakness you fear. Stop harboring your stress and frustration; it’s time to have the conversation you need to have.
    You can absolutely ask for help—and keep your stellar reputation intact! Let’s talk about how to ask your boss for help.
