Maybe you headed to a friend’s impromptu birthday dinner last night instead of brushing up on points for the morning meeting. You promised yourself, before hitting the pillow, that you’d wake up early and outline your talking points, but—spoiler alert—that didn’t happen. Or maybe you really didn’t get that meeting invite until the last minute (we’ll blame Gmail).

This style of communication keeps you from sounding like the seasoned professional you [...]

Congratulations—you got a job offer! You’re thrilled—and you should be—but keep your composure and don’t pop the champagne just yet.

If you’re anything like me, you’re a perpetual multi-tasker. This quality can be helpful, but it can also be a handicap—like when you’re trying to complete a dissertation, thesis, term paper, or long-term creative project. These kinds of tasks require single-mindedness, focus, and diligence—not bouncing around from idea to idea.

At some point, it may start to feel like you’ve exhausted every PR trick in the book. You’ve attended events, distributed press releases, made friends with key journalists, and created more social media platforms than you can count.

Growing up, bullies were everywhere. They pulled your hair on the playground, they made fun of your name in high school, they were even people you called “friends.” But now you’re an adult, so all of that should be behind you, right?
