It's been exactly 3 months since I left my full-time job. Not everyone knows this, but I never stopped working the copywriting gig I picked up while in Costa Rica.

Millennials: Why Our Bad Rep is Justifiable

“Do you think our generation lacks work ethic?” I was catching up with a friend who had just graduated with his Bachelor’s in Psychology, living at home, and had no real motivation for working a basic 9-5. “Maybe, yeah” he shrugged, as we continued to walk the pier at Coney Island.

Opportunities Abroad

Sometimes we can't always see the opportunity lying right in front of us. But on Friday, June 30th, a friend spun around from her laptop and clearly asked, "Tishely, do you want to go to Peru?!".  Uh, yes? "Tomorrow?", came the next prompt. Wait, what? She explained that her company was in dire need of... Continue Reading →

The Long Way Home

Everyone's reason for traveling is personal, but sometimes it's hard to determine the authenticity of the passion, or whether we're just obsessed with a more elite version of stamp collecting.
