The Art of Great Coaching
Many managers seem to cringe at the thought of coaching their employees when performance comes up short. I mean, after all, don’t they already know their jobs?

The Top 9 Best Excuses for the Absentee Client
Wake up 5 AM sharp, your carefully macro balanced breakfast has been polished off, your meals for the day are prepped. On the way to work you pick up your Double Shot Starbucks already waiting, slotted perfectly into the cardboard sleeve and your favourite non de clurme (because your real name is far too boring) scrawled accross its anodyne corporate surface.
Email From Hell
I moved to Chicago in January 2017 after having already been unemployed for a little over four months. I quit my old job in New York City in August 2016 while I planned to move back to the Midwest. I lived with different family members while I job hunted—a process that took a lot longer than I thought it would. Needless to say, those four months were really tough.

I moved to the capital when I was 18—young, full to the brim with anticipation for the adventure of starting my acting training at drama school. Blinded by the stunning views of the River Thames at night, the LED lights of the West End showed posters that begged me to buy a ticket; that endless fizzle of noise and energy... oh, London. The rush; the heaving, sweaty, smog-filled streets of your centre. You really had me. I felt home. I felt free. I wanted to explore every part of you and gorge myself on your sights. I was ready to become the city-wise, bohemian artist I felt I was destined to be. I could, and I would, write my story here.
What Is Guy Culture and How to Disrupt It
Many people—men and women—hear the word "feminism" and scream, ridicule, and run away. It has been made out to be a bad word; a trigger word. The story of feminism gets twisted into "women hate men" and "women complain for no reason" instead of what it really is: Women want the same respect that men have.
How to Get Through Writer's Block
I think it's fair to say that every writer feels the panic of not being able to think up new and original ideas. Being a writer is hard.

Becoming a Freelancer
So, you want to be a freelancer? Let me be the first of many to start out by telling you that it sure as heck isn’t going to be easy.

The pressure to land contacts, jobs, and make connections intensifies when our own livelihood is at stake.
