Tips for Women Travelling Solo

Travel the world they said.  It will be fun they said.  Go alone, enjoy the sites, take it all in they said. But as women, we often worry about traveling alone and worry about our safety.  But hey, just because we are women doesn’t mean we need to be scared of the outside world.  We just have to be aware of our surroundings and always be attentive.  So, if traveling is on your bucket list, and you want to go enjoy the world, and can’t find anyone to go with you, you go girl!  But before going… read our tips to travel safely. Be confident! Again, confidence is everything.  Especially for a woman traveling alone.  Don’t look scared, worried, or even nervous.  Whether you are lost or in trouble, remain confident and attentive at all times.  Remember, it will be okay.  Stay calm. Don’t go out and about after the sun sets. Everything is scarier at night, and people that are harmful typically like to come out at night.  So, do your site seeing during daylight and you will be fine!  The sites aren’t as pretty at night any way! Always have a plan. Make sure you schedule phone calls with someone back home at the same time each day so they can keep tabs on you and your safety.  Also, if something feels weird, tell the receptionist at a restaurant, or even staff at your hotel.  When you sense something isn’t right, there is a good chance it isn’t.  Pay attention to your instincts! Embrace the sites. Take the time to take everything in and enjoy your time...

Job interview.  Sounds scary, huh?  The two words together, job + interview, seem to scare most women at this stage in life.  Whether you are getting ready to graduate high school, or college, if it isn’t “that time yet” it will be soon. So, what about it makes it so scary?  Is it because you just want the job so bad that you are worried about messing up?  Or is it that you don’t even know what you want, and you don’t even know how to act?  Or maybe it is none of the above, but you have your own reason.  Well, fear not… we have pointers to help prep you for your interview.  The best advice we have for you while you are prepping for your interview is this: Do your research! In order to feel confident and knowledgeable during your interview, it is important to know what you are interviewing for, and most importantly what/who the company is.  TIP:  you will impress your interviewee if you ask direct questions about the company.  It will show that you have done your research and show that you are very interested in the company as whole.

Dress for success. Ever heard the expression, “look good, feel good”?  It’s...
Tips on Getting Out of The Door Faster in The Morning

Tips on Getting Out of The Door Faster in The Morning

Mornings are tough! Isn’t it crazy how we can go to bed with the best attitude and intentions of waking up early the next morning, but as soon as the morning comes, all those good intentions go right out the window? Unfortunately, we all go through this. However, there are several ways to prep the night before so you can get out the door as quick as possible in the morning! 1. Pack your lunch the night before. Meal prepping is the new thing. But something I have learned is not to just prep your meals for the week, but right before you go to bed, gather your breakfast and lunch and place it all together and in one spot so it is easy to grab on your way out the door. 2. Drink coffee? Make it the night before. If you drink coffee, does your coffee pot have a timer? If possible, get your coffee pot ready to go and set your timer so the coffee is brewed for you when you wake up. Seems like a fancy feature, but you can buy coffee pots with timers from Walmart for like $20. I promise you, it’s amazing to wake up to fresh coffee. This will also save you the hassle of prepping the coffee that morning. 3. Arrange your outfit for the next day. Simple, huh? Just gather exactly what you want to wear the next day, lay it out with your shoes and your jewelry, and the next morning you will be set. You won’t have to worry about running around the house trying to find articles...
