Since I can remember, I've always been told how important it is to network. Whether it's just meeting people at a party, or going to an actual networking event, it's something that everyone can do, and it really can connect great people and lead to opportunities. But before you get out there, make yourself aware of the types of networkers you may encounter, and make sure to be yourself, rather than one of the networking archetypes that we will outline in this blog.
Question: My close friend is moving across the country and I’m super bummed out. How can I start to feel better about it?

When you go to a party, do you ever dream of being the life of that party? Just picture it. A dance circle forms on the dance floor, everyone gathers arounds and claps, and you jump in the middle to impress the whole crowd with your polished, incredible moves.
But, if you’re like most people, that scenario merely exists in the form of a daydream. The reality is, you’re not that coordinated, you have never taken a professional dance class, or you’re just a bad dancer.
Question: I am on my phone wayyy too much. Any tips you recommend for unplugging every now and then?

Question: I have a ton of stuff that I want to get rid of. It seems daunting, I don’t even know where to begin! Any advice?
