Business Sneak Peek
An exciting change for my business this year – I’ll be donating 10% of my profits to charity. This year’s haul wasn’t huge because I only started collecting in October, BUT I’m thrilled to be starting this new tradition. I’ve picked 4 domestic charities from UPenn’s Center for High-Impact Philanthropy and I’d love it if you would weigh in on which one to choose!
- The Nurse-Family Partnership (education and assistance for at-risk mothers/babies)
- Feeding America (hunger relief)
- Year Up (career training and opportunities for low-income youths)
- Futures Without Violence (solutions and prevention for domestic violence)
Donation to be made December 31st so vote by Saturday, December 30th!

Sometimes I think you just get the right book at the right time. But with that caveat, I found this incredibly inspiring. I’m not 100% sold on manifesting but I definitely have some money blocks and the in-your-face bluntness of this book force me to confront that. It also made me laugh and gave me quite a few other things to think about. I think anyone who has career or business goals would benefit from this.
