An “underearner” is someone who earns less than they are capable of. It’s estimated that one in three workers is an underearner, and most of them are women (though plenty of men are affected too).   I’ve previously mentioned how one of my biggest career mistakes has been not asking for more money. I’ve gotten better at this, but I still struggle… (Show more)

I’ve worked at three different companies at this point in my career, and each had a different method of evaluating its people. One even changed its process for performance reviews before I had a chance to get through my first cycle!   We just wrapped up performance reviews for the first half of the year at my current employer, Facebook, so the… (Show more)

We all love to hear that we’re doing a good job. Whether it’s in school, on the job, or in some other related context, praise is reassuring and celebratory. It means you’ll get favorable results if you just keep on doing what you’re doing.   But the issue with praise is that if you just keep doing what you’re doing, you’re never going to get any… (Show more)

If you just had a phone interview and they documented every answer to every question they asked you and they end up liking you. The next step is they set you up to do a in person interview with the hiring manager for that specific job.   But during the in person interview i was asked the same exact questions and she was reading the documented… (Show more)

Because I run a blog and podcast where I speak a lot about the gig economy and making money on your own terms, I get a lot of emails from people who are sick of their day jobs and want to quit to do their own thing.   I understand the frustration because I’ve been there. As a creative, one of the most difficult things I had to do was stay at a… (Show more)

Have you ever looked at the gift card section at your local Target or convenience store, saw cards for Facebook or another social media site, and thought, “Oh my, who on Earth would spend money on Facebook?” I certainly have. But … I also have spent money on Facebook. No, I wasn’t trying increase my acreage on Farmville. I was spending for a… (Show more)

One thing that I learned early in life was that networking is a crucial part of landing great opportunities and getting jobs. However, “networking” can seem so abstract—especially for a college underclassman. Does it mean always dressing professionally with a résumé at hand? Does it mean making a lasting impression on someone?   Below are a few… (Show more)

Growing up, I had several part-time jobs. Some were more memorable than others were (like the two summers I worked in a rope factory … but that’s a story for another day).   I learned valuable lessons about work, life, and money from each. However, the money lessons learned from my first “real job,” a part-time gig as a busboy while I was in high… (Show more)

Recently, I was offered a new opportunity. Out of the blue, someone contacted me on Twitter saying they’d seen my work elsewhere and would be interested in hiring me to do some work for them. I was intrigued, but caught off guard for sure. After exchanging a few emails, the opportunity seemed a little more clear. I’d be paid for some part-time… (Show more)

When I was in college, I barely had enough money to pay for my rent and food. But I did not let my lack of financial resources stop me from starting my own business.   Don’t waste your undergraduate years partying. Instead, utilize your time to start a business because there is no better experience—and no better time to do so. Here’s why.   1.… (Show more)
