My heart was bursting with excitement when I first discovered Yellow Conference. Two days in a room buzzing with inspiring speakers and hands-on workshops? Yes, please! After graduating a year ago and jumping into the 8-5 routine, the challenge to remain inspired still feels like a pretty fresh struggle.

Why I Quit My Job to Freelance Full-time

It’s almost ironic - especially considering this article I recently wrote about how my side hustle helped me find my purpose. Except there was a problem staring me in the face for months I couldn’t see; I kept viewing my side hustle as just a side hustle, even when it was fulfilling me more than my 8-5 pm job at an agency.

Top 5 Coffee Shops in Chico, California

As a startup employee and blogger, I enjoy plenty of hours with my laptop at coffee shops. There’s something magical about the smell of roasted java beans and the mumbles of the crowd that somehow manage to heighten my focus and creativity. Whether it’s enjoying a fancy hand-crafted latte or just a good cup of coffee, I love frequenting different coffee shops around town.

5 Ways To Experience Hygge In Your Home

Confession: I went to Denmark this summer because I wanted to know what their secret was. They’re often named the happiest country in the world and after visiting I learned one big reason why – hygge.

3 Simple Ways to Cultivate More Self-Love

I recently caught up with a close friend who, over a some wine and pasta, shared that she wasn’t where she “expected” to be at this point in her life. It’s all too-common cocktail fodder for millennial women and usually ends up veering into“I’m not enough” territory. Like any good friend, I spent the next half hour reminding her of how amazing she is, easily rattling off a million reasons why she had no reason to doubt herself.

5 Ways to Play Like a Kid as An Adult

Do you remember how easy it was to lose track of time in the playground when you were a kid? Most of us were very good at play when we were children, but it’s often the first thing we de-prioritize as adults because it isn’t a “grown up” activity. While we previously talked about how adults often view play as a waste of time, research suggests otherwise.

Why Your Restaurant Should be Using User-Generated Content

Who are you most likely to trust when it comes to deciding where to eat — real people sharing their opinions through social media or a website? More often than not, people are being swayed by the first option. This is precisely why user-generated content (UGC) is such a valuable concept for businesses.

How to Create a Vision Board and Achieve Your Dreams

Whether it’s hitting a particular professional goal or finding the ideal partner, it’s easy to spend your days daydreaming about the “perfect” future scenario. The hard part is finding the discipline to take the small, daily steps towards those dreams. In fact, Forbes recently reported on a survey that stated “Eighty-two percent of small business owners that used a vision board from the get-go reported that they have accomplished more than half the goals they included on that board.”.
