Personal Development

If you’ve been around this space for a while, then you know how passionate I am about personal development and productivity. They’re some of my favorite topics to write about, and something I make a lot of time for in my own life.

This wasn’t always the case though. Just a few years ago, I was really struggling. I was stuck in an unhappy relationship and an unhappy career. I didn’t know where to go next in my life and wasn’t setting goals for myself. And I felt like there just weren’t enough hours in the day.

Then I turned to personal development.

I dove into reading personal development books and websites, and listening to personal development podcasts. I learned so much about goal setting, productivity and managing my mind, and then turned around and implemented those lessons into my own life.

Taking control of my time and my mind has allowed me to start my own business, quit a full-time job where I was unhappy, and enter into an amazing marriage where I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

Now I still make time for personal development every day. And I love being about to write articles to share what I’ve learned with you! 

I want to help! I’m here to share with you exactly how I’ve learned to slay my to-do list every day and reach all of my personal goals. Keep reading to check out some of my most popular posts on personal development and productivity!
