When I was building my start-up, I was also working a full-time job and getting out of credit card debt. It was not easy balancing all of this. When I focused on my start-up, I lost focus on my full-time job—and vice-versa. I knew that one day I would fully commit to my start-up, but I wanted to be respectful to my full-time job until then.   To… (Show more)

Throughout my career as a financial expert, I’ve always been very transparent about the fact that I’m a recovering underearner.   I’ve had to learn how to value my work and ask to be compensated appropriately. It can be a terrifying process because you run the risk of getting rejected, but it’s also very liberating when you finally face the fear.… (Show more)

This past week, I attended a 1-day project management seminar. Although the course cost $199 (without breakfast or lunch included), I received valuable knowledge that I will use in my career.   While this course was helpful, I’ve attended other professional development courses that wasted my time. Unfortunately, not every professional… (Show more)

It’s that time of year: summer job and internship interview season. The pressure is on to dazzle your possible future boss with glowing facts about yourself. But is that all it takes to get the job? No!   I may be only 21 years old, but because I’m paying for college myself, I’ve had a lot of jobs. And that means I’ve been through a lot of job… (Show more)

Now, as I coach business owners, I still see a lot of the same negative patterns appear again and again.   Here are the three most common career myths that I’ve seen hold people back. Don’t be one of them. Read… (Show more)

A few years ago, I walked out of a supermarket and, out of curiosity, grabbed the local newspaper to look at its job listings. I was a few weeks away from graduating college, and my start-up had not generated cash. I needed a job to make ends meet.   One job captured my attention: a sales position for a Hispanic newspaper, which happened to be… (Show more)

As millennials, it is our dream to work for ourselves and have no boss. For many of us, that means becoming “entrepreneurs.” Media outlets have made this profession famous over the last decade—and made it sound easy to achieve success.   It’s not.   Even if you have a graduate degree in entrepreneurship (as I do), that does not guarantee… (Show more)

I started writing for Salt as an intern back in June 2013. I had just finished my film and television bachelor’s degree at Boston University and was a couple months away from moving to NYC for my career dreams.   Writing for this community helped me process my decision to move—as well as a number of other financial decisions I’ve made. I thank… (Show more)

A month ago, I finished an 8-month contract as an associate story producer for a TV show. I was in between jobs. Nothing new for a freelancer.   After a few interviews, I got an offer to work on another show, but the start date was a month away. That meant 4 weeks until I started working, and then another week before seeing a paycheck. That’s a… (Show more)
