A Day in the Life With Richard Branson on Hulu

I first heard about Richard Branson when I read a case study about Virgin Records in my Entrepreneurship 101 class, many moons ago. There are not a lot of people who continuously amaze and inspire you, but Richard Branson is in that very, very prestigious club. That is a club that is more prestigious than his membership in the billionaire club. There are a lot of ...

Proof That Thoughts Are Things

I took these notes at a public speaking workshop I took from Take Back College speaker, Ryan Penneau. It was absolutely amazing and I highly recommend attending one if you have the opportunity. This is very simple logic that demonstrates that thoughts are things. What you think about most, directly influences your behavior. What you think about most, is what you ...

How To Use Jealousy To Your Advantage

If it wasn't common knowledge before, it must be now that Dr. Phil lists it as the one of the 5 Ways To Break A Bad Habit, right? What I'm proposing is to use the same technique Nicorette gum uses to help people stop smoking - replace the bad habit with a good habit! Replace jealousy with curiosity.

There aren't very many Top 40 songs that are meant to inspire you to be great from within yourself like Firework by Katy Perry or I Believe I Can Fly by R. Kelly. So ...

Peanut Butter-holic Switches to Almond Butter

Peanut butter was my crack. If you don't believe me, just ask my former coworker, @JakeButzer, who used to comment every time he walked by my desk and saw me with a spoonful of peanut butter in my mouth- which happened to be a couple of times a day. It just tastes so good! Dare I mention how easy it is to just eat it right from the jar too? According to the National ...

Can you really use olive oil to remove makeup naturally?!

Seriously! I didn't believe it either, but it actually worked very well. Here's the blog I read that inspired me to wipe Olive Oil all over my face. Although it's very counter-intuitive to wipe oil all over your face to wash it, my dad told me about an article he read in a NASA trade magazine, where they discovered the best way to pull fat out of hamburger was to ...

Natural Way to Remove Hair Product Buildup

The only reason I own a blow dryer is to put plastic on my windows in the winter. Needless to say, but hair has never really been a priority of mine, so I never gave much thought to what shampoo I used. But after learning a TON of stuff from Gina at SuperNatural Hair Salon in St. Paul+ (who has an awesome Groupon right now!), I will definitely be more cautious about ...

Going Green To Live Longer

If you haven't seen Chemerical, I HIGHLY recommend it! The documentary (is of course on Netflix) follows a family who is replaces everything in their house that contains toxic chemicals with a 'green' alternative. The documentary is kind of cheesy, but it definitely makes you think twice about what's in the products you eat and breathe regularly. The quality of the ...
