Today’s morning muse: If you haven’t had a chance to read Michael Strahan’s book “Wake Up Happy,” you need to get on it, stat! For some reason it takes me forever to read through fiction—but non-fiction—that’s a whole different story. Tina Fey’s book Bossy Pants. . . yeah that was finished in about 24 hours. When it comes to cracking open the binding of a new book, I want it to be real. I want to learn about others—their struggles, their triumphs, their philosophies on life, the things that make
Today’s morning muse: I was sitting at my grandfather’s funeral, my little sister on one side of me, and my older brother on the other.

We are constantly thinking about ways to push our business forward. We are always networking. Always seeking opportunity. Always trying to navigate our next move. Always trying to figure out who can trust
I think one of the biggest reality checks after graduating college was realizing that the learning does not stop when you get that diploma. Going to school is only the beginning of the learning process. But personally, I like it that way! I think embracing new knowledge is the best ways to stay humble and improve yourself as a person.

I’m sure you’ve heard of several types of cleanses: juicing, herbal detoxes, fruit and veggie cleanses, the list goes on. But what about a social cleanse? After going through a few ups and down with relationships, friendships, and my career over the years—I finally realized that I have a significant amount of say in the people I let in and out of my life.
