a meditation for acceptance

This **bonus** meditation comes at the request of a listener. Frustrated? Annoyed? Feel like every day is groundhogs day? Cool. Me too. I’m sharing the meditation I use to help me accept what’s happening, move through frustration, and make room for the things I really do want in my life. I use this meditation daily!

how to stand out in a pandemic job application

The pandemic bulldozed over your spring semester sliding right into your job hunt for any 2020 grads. It’s also changed the job landscape putting even more emphasis on being able to stand out among other candidates.  In this audio clip, I share a tip that my friend in recruiting gave me that changed the way I present myself during interviews. It may seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people don’t do this. You need to be able to show employers why they should hire you for the job and this tip helps paints a memorable story about yourself.

how covid affects college admissions

The pandemic has turned college admissions upside down. Without SAT/ACT scores, extracurriculars, and with semesters of pass/fail grades, the traditional admissions rubric no longer works. This is a huge opportunity as more weight shifts to a student’s character making essays, interviews, and recommendations essential. In this episode, I share my #1 tip to stand out in college essays and cover letters. Knowing who you are, why you want to be a student at a specific school, and how to articulate it, is now crucial. This is a pandemic shift I am actually excited about!

making friends in quarantine

::CREATING YOUR INNER CIRCLE:: 

Who are the people in your life that you tell the truth about yourself to?

This is your inner circle… 

And it’s not an easy thing to put together. During covid, community is more important than ever. I know I’ve definitely felt isolated! 

When I just graduated college, I used to go to Monday night Gabby Bernstein groups where I met a lot of people with like minded interests, but how do we do that in times of quarantine? Megan McDowell of Heartworks shares with me how to build this inner circle at 45 minutes in the podcast below. 

Creating community starts with yourself. If you’re only projecting to people that you have your shit together all the time, life is going to be very lonely. This is also why mentorship has been so important to me. Mentors are in my inner circle that meet me and accept where I’m at.

In this pep-talk I share the tips that have helped me navigate this time of uncertainty!

so like… what’s mentoring like?

Mentorship for Post-grads, Teens, and Tweens

because doing anything for the first time can be intimidating and I want to take some of the stress out of it


 

 

 

 

 

Sometimes when people think about talking to someone it bring up the idea of sitting in a sterile room with a clinical person. With mentorship we can grab coffee, hang out, take a walk, chat on the phone/FaceTime. It’s not just starring at each other in a cold room! I know college counseling centers can be busy. With mentoring, we chat at times that work for you whether it’s in between classes or on the weekends. ⁣

What do we talk about? ⁣

Truly anything, everything, and nothing. Nervous about starting a conversation? I got you. Don’t want to talk about something? We don’t have to. Have a lot on your chest? Vent away! Want to meditate? We can do that too. This is for you!⁣

What happens after? ⁣

Growth is not linear. I encourage all my students to be gentle with themselves. Mentorship is a form of self-care and know that I have your back (I’ll even tell you in follow-up texts)! ⁣

Sending everyone  a big hug!
