Taking Time Away From Your Desk Throughout the Work Day

Throughout the work day, you can become overly stress, your back or neck begins to hurt or your co-workers are irking your nerves.  Here are a few things you can do to take time away from your desk! Go on a short walk. Take a walk around the building if it’s cold outside, but if it’s nice enough, take around the building a couple of times.  At my company, we have several different buildings in the area, so I’ll take a walk to different buildings and walk around them to get a different view/sight. Take Your Lunch Break in the Park/Designated…

When Issa picked Molly up from the airport and Issa says that Molly is looking like a ‘Brown, crispy M&M’ and then when Molly…

Boss Women Who Are CEOs/Founders

First CEO/Founder on the list is Jaclyn Johnson.  Jaclyn is the founder of Create Cultivate and WorkParty!!! I can’t remember how I stumbled across Create Cultivate’s IG, but I am so glad that I did.  If I ever imagined a company that I worked for or mirrored, this is exactly the company I would want to do both after.  I actually want to work for Creative Cultivate as either a Talent Coordinator or a Social Media Coordinator that eventually grows to be a Sr. Communications Manager with the company, so Jaclyn if you by some magical chance read my blog…

Signs You Should Be Single

You’re always in a relationship. This is a big one for me. I’ve dated someone who was literally ALWAYS in a relationship.  Immediately before he and I started dating, he was in a relationship, immediately after me he started dating someone and the same after her.  I think at that point, you SHOULD be single.  You need time to yourself, to figure out who you are and what it is that you will and will not tolerate in your next relationship.  Figure out what you’re looking for in a mate and why your previous relationships were not working. You’re still not…
