3 Things Every Self-Employed, Aspiring Homebuyer Needs to Do

Buying a home when you’re self-employed is notoriously tricky. After all, an up-and-down income cycle is—understandably—less appealing to mortgage companies than a dependable paycheck.

True Advice from People Who Are Truly Bad at Email

There’s a quote attributed to Bill Gates that I recite all the time: “I choose a lazy person to do a hard job; because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.” I love it because it captures a sentiment I’ve always found to ring true: There’s a way to turn a vice into a virtue.

6 Badass Creatives On How to Get Past Being Told “No” — Wonder Women

Sometimes you just have to open your own damn door. All people in creative fields get their ideas rejected at one point. (Yes, even Don Draper.) But when you have real passion for a project, or a strong vision you want to see through to the end, it can be devastating to be told “no.” Or that you can’t move forward. That something won’t work. Or that your idea just isn’t any good.
