“What should I do?” I hear this question all the time as a mentor. Confusion can be uncomfortable (not to mention lonely). It’s sometimes hard to make sense of life’s changes and challenges! In my pep talk today, I share my magic tricks. They’re simple ways to use tarot cards, spirit animals, and even Spotify as an oracle for life guidance and inner awareness. When you connect to your inner-self, you’re able to trust in the unfolding of your life, recognize your path, and move forward in areas that feel stuck.
Jealously has been a sneaky side effect of the pandemic. It’s easy to think that someone has it better than you when there is such a range of openings and closures in various places. But jealously can actually be used in a really positive way if you know what to do with it. In today’s pep-talk, I share how a moment of jealously helped me and how you can use it to get what you want in your life.
The pandemic has turned college admissions upside down. Without SAT/ACT scores, extracurriculars, and pass/fail grades, the traditional admissions rubric no longer works.

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 attend a specific school, and how to articulate that is now crucial. This is a pandemic shift I am actually excited about!
I know there’s so much unknown right now (like what will Fall 2020 look like?). Uncertainty can be especially uncomfortable for college students and recent grads who are already undergoing major transitions. But you don’t just have to wait and worry until things get figured out. There’s actually a lot of opportunity if you have the right support! In this pep-talk I share the tips that have helped me navigate this time of uncertainty!

We know we should meditate because it’s supposed to be good for us, but how do we actually do it and stick with it?

Also, you can be ghosted in a job situation and in friendships, so I got your back and covered those too!
Afraid to go after the things that you want? I get it. Today’s episode is all about putting yourself out there.

Today’s pep-talk is on the myth of the Freshman 15. My friend Erin says, “If you want to know about a person and how they treat themselves, pay attention to how they feed themselves.” There are so many changes that happen in college including how you eat.

Do you have a personal Board of Sdvisors?
