It was more than just a race

I began my training on June 6, 2014 for the NYC Marathon, which was on November 2, 2014. Calculated, I ran 345 miles in training, cross trained 3x a week, which consisted of light weight lifting, elliptical, stationary bike, or some form of water cardio.

The Emily Post Guide to Executive Presence

Executive Presence. Those two words alone had me intrigued and so I decided borrow this book from my library. I read Sylvia Ann Hewlett’s first book: Forget a Mentor, Find a Sponsor, and enjoyed reading about the new trend in building your awesomeness. Executive Presence begins like her previous book.

Taking the Reigns

While those are all awesome ways to professionally develop yourself  and gain valuable knowledge that will help you advance in your position, I am afforded a different opportunity.

The Mean Girls Syndrome

I think most of us would much rather forget, than to relive, our high school days. For me, it wasn’t exactly rainbows and sunshine, rather, it was kind of miserable. I didn’t really enjoy high school and was very happy when graduation day came and I got to say Adios to good ol’ Edison High. The
