Setting Goals and Boundaries for Yourself as a Writer
Although I've had my Vocal account since 2017, I've only been writing steadily on this site since the end of last summer. Wow. It's almost been a year since I began to dedicate myself to my Vocal page; unbelievable that's it hasn't been that long (it's felt like I've been doing this since forever). If you were to look at my page, you can definitely see that my Vocal.Media adventure has been all over the place since I began writing just last summer, but boy have I had so much fun in doing it.

Dear Vocal Creators: We Can Fight Misinformation!
We are so tired of misinformation and fake news that even though it’s all words and ideas, they are taking a hit on our bodies. We have information fatigue, news fatigue, stress, and more.

Pay Transparency? I think YES!
It's finally happening! The American public is speaking up and wants to know the truth: Where's the salary on this application? To lead this pay transparency movement is the Big Apple.

Not earning money on Vocal? Get the most from the experience and better hone your writing skills.
From a young age I realized that I was partly autodidactic. Some things I could learn from others without much of a problem, but there were other areas which, within reason, I should have adapted to like everyone else, but no matter how hard I tried, I could not master being tutored by another person.
How did I become a writer?
Lately, I’ve been seeing questions like these: What tv show/movie did want you to become a screenwriter? Which book inspired you to become a writer?
Why Startups Fail: It’s All About Marketing and Team
The majority of business books focus on success stories. Otherwise, they wouldn’t have sold so well. But survivorship bias sometimes paints a picture too pretty to be true. What if instead of success stories we study the stories of failure? In the frenzy of excitement, it’s easy to forget that in reality, the majority of startups crash-land in the first 3 years of their existence. The dream wears off, the reality hits. The smartest thing an entrepreneur can do is to study exactly why startups fail, identify a problem, and think about how to prevent it.

No Matter How Hard I Work, I Will Never Have The Same Opportunities as Kim Kardashian
I’ve wanted to be a professional writer for as long as I can remember. I used to write ‘books’ in elementary school and share them with my teachers. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve dreamed of holding my book in my hands and meeting fans at book signings. I’d love to write full time and support myself with my writing, but that hasn’t happened yet.

As much as I like to think I'm a disciplined writer, I have to admit I'm not. Take this article for instance. I think I sat down to write it about fourteen times. Seriously. I kept concocting distractions that seemed to be a priority and every time I came back to my desk all I could whip up was another reason to stand up and mosey away.
