    27 Feb 2015 | 6:00 pm
    There is an alarming number of statistics surrounding the failure of startups. The Wall Street Journal reports that as many as 3 out of 4 startups fail per year. These startups are actually backed by venture capitalists. Imagine the number of startups that fail without proper capital and funding. Why would a well-funded startup company fail? There are dozens of reasons. Well-funded or not, failing startups have a number of things in common. Knowing what these reasons are can help you make adjustments in your business, so that you and your startup can become successful. No One Wants…

    Before heading to North Carolina to spend Christmas with my parents, we decided to do a few days in New Orleans with the kids. Torsten and I had both been to New Orleans previously, but never together (he had gone for a work conference and I had been with my parents at age 19). And the kids had never been. I want to recap the trip not just because it was great but also because it was a real learning experience about traveling with two kids and I have some tips that might be useful for others considering similar trips.New Orleans is my favorite type of vacation with littles - it's a city where…

While it is important to keep pace with technological and tactical advances, it’s also important to hang on to marketing tools that continue to prove their worth. Though some of these classic marketing tactics have evolved, the fact of the matter is that they have been working – and working well – for the past twenty-five-plus years. What’s more, there’s no…

    For a young upstart, the first company car is a big step. It means that you and your employees can arrive at work in style. You will represent the business and the car must match that professionalism. Choosing your first company car isn’t easy, however. You’ll instinctively look towards the expensive, flashy designs. But, that’s not always the best plan. Every model has its varying costs associated with it and you need to bear that in mind. 1. Design. The design of your company car is still very important. A company car must be professional, sophisticated and modern. The car is an…

From the initial concept, through those faltering early days and (hopefully) on to success and growth, a business becomes a 24/7 commitment. But this all-encompassing nature of business means that many successful entrepreneurs neglect to make arrangements to protect their assets and plan for the future. Which is where a financial advisor comes into play. Here are 5 reasons to consider hiring a financial advisor: 1. Protecting Your Future.

Meaning that next time I do this, you will be ONE!This month has been another month of explosions for you, the two biggest being that you have started to walk and you have started to say a couple words. A couple weeks ago you took a few tentative steps, and you have slowly been increasing since then. By now you walk steadily for 8-10 steps at a time, and occasionally walk as a mode of transportation, even though crawling is still faster. You've also figured out how to stand up without pulling or bracing yourself on anything, by…

Judging from your desire to rip your 10-month sticker off your onesie while I took your photo today, I'd say that might not be a bad thing. This month has been all about the standing. You always want to be upright, and you're very good. You pull yourself to standing on almost anything, and you only need a surface of an inch or two (like a puzzle box) to get yourself upright. Once you're up, you no longer need to hold on to anything to stay that way, and will…

    Ebola can be scary, especially for an immunocompromised transplant patient! (Especially in Cleveland/Akron where an Ebola patient traveled immediately before being diagnosed!) The media is going crazy with every lead they can find, and people are blowing things out of proportion on social media. Instead of being consumed with fear, I decided to get some answers. On my quest of separating facts from undue overreaction, I’ve generally avoided the media and stayed in-tune to the CDC and live airings of our local health departments, doctors at our top Cleveland hospitals, and government…

Without my gift of life, I wouldn’t have received the opportunity to love again, complete my education, visit new countries across the world, become a godmother, meet new friends, touch more lives, or savor every ordinary day. The journey has – at times – been treacherous and almost too much to bear. There has been fear and pain. But today,…

Once I get back to the office in January I know there will be a lot of news and changing variables (sports championships, college acceptances, compelling senior projects, etc) and so it will be important to know where true north is and to prioritize things that are within my area of…

It covered everything from a guest lecture on Monsanto’s genetically modified crops, to Steve Jobs’ mixing art and science, and to Václav Havel’s role as a public intellectual.

When I started She Takes on the World as a wee blog back in 2008 things were so different than they are now. The gospel of “build your list!” had yet to be preached everywhere.

  • Five Things Every Entrepreneur Should Outsource Right Now

    With apologies to Sheryl Sandberg, before we “ban bossy” it would be really great to ban the exaltation of “busy” for today’s entrepreneurs. Especially for women entrepreneurs who try to embody Superwoman by doing all the things, all the time. Busy becomes synonymous with successful, hard working and dedicated instead of the dark side symptoms of overworked, exhausted and burnt out. One of the best ways to reclaim “busy” is to embrace delegation so that the same volume of work gets accomplished in less time with less blood, sweat and tears. Here are my 5 areas where…

Eating. Sulking. Living. Ambition. It all takes time. Aspirations, however. They don’t take a lot of time. They just require an active mind. Aspirations lead to great things. Aspirations lead to groundbreaking projects and pure joy and unbridled excitement. Aspirations are timeless. Putting them into reality, though. That takes time. The value of those aspirations, the quality of our eating and…

It took about two hours, so by the time we got up there, we had a limited amount of time to explore. During the hike, we contemplated the origin of the name. At first, we thought maybe it was named after a belt of bullets worn across the body. Clever and creative (those canyon…

    28 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    I kind of skipped January, but I'm back this month to share a few of my favorite things! (Eisley's current refusal to nap has thrown a wrench in my blogging groove. And my getting-anything-else-done-groove. Ah, well…this too shall pass…or not…speaking of which, where are those Girl Scout cookies again?)In any case, here are some things that had me swooning this month:1. Amy Knapp's Family Organizer — I know it seems a little late in the year to be waxing poetic on a daily planner, but bear with me! There may be some of you who have yet to pick up something decent for…

    27 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    Well, it's official, folks. On Monday, Jay and I learned we will soon be the proud parents of another darling girl! Eisley is getting a sister, and we kind of can't believe it.I think that Eisley is the only person who had guessed girl instead of boy—and I especially was expecting to see some, shall we say, business on the ultrasound, mostly because this pregnancy has felt so different than the first. But when the tech did the big reveal, she said, "Well, there's nothing there." For a hot second I was actually thinking something was wrong with our son and he was missing some very necessary…

    I'm sure every month I'm bound to say the same exact thing: Sweet mercy, this is going by so quickly! It's crazy to think I'm already only a month away from being halfway through this pregnancy. Every day, almost all I can think (in-between all the busy moments of life) is a constant prayer of, "Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for this baby." It all still feels so surreal, even after getting to this point.Symptoms: Aside from continued exhaustion (which may or may not be directly connected to sleeping terribly), most days I seem to forget there's an avocado-sized baby floating…

I wish I could thank every single one of you in person, but alas! All of your well-wishes and shared excitement means so much. I may say it often, but it's true.Here's a quick lil' weekend list for all of you:+ I received some absolutely wonderful handmade Christmas gifts this year—including a gorgeous blanket, knitted by my mother-in-law, as well as the above infinity scarf, knitted by Jay's aunt.

    9 Jan 2015 | 7:00 am
    As I begin to write this post, the whole thing still feels so surreal. Part of me feels like I was just writing about my pregnancy with Eisley. And, quite unexpectedly, I have struggled much more with worry and fear this time around—probably because this baby feels much more long-awaited, and all I keep wondering about is how this could possibly turn out the way I hope. Could I really be that lucky? Although there have been only four years between pregnancies, I've changed in so many ways. Perhaps it's odd, considering I've already gone though this once, but everything seems much more…

  • Puerto Rico Visit, Part 1 | Lazing about at a resort

    Ashley Cadaret
    25 Feb 2015 | 7:00 am
    Like last time, we split up our winter getaway to Puerto Rico in two parts: first, staying at a remote resort on the northeast shore with plenty of space and greenery, then staying near the city to partake in much food and walking. If you’re wondering why Puerto Rico or about the different areas to visit on the island, I recommend checking out this post. Basically, we know that a balance of relaxation and city life is our favorite combination. Too much city or only relaxing at a beach would get boring for us (or too stimulating and we’d never feel like we had a vacation!). How to…

I have no idea how I stumbled across Redbooth, but I tried it alongside a few other project management sites and found it to be my favorite. Why I love Redbooth - It makes my life easier. I juggle a lot. This makes it less likely a ball will get dropped. - Templated task lists – since I make websites a lot, I saved the task list for website creation as a task…

    Written by Melissa Anzman Another awesome topic from the Life After College survey! The phrase, Flexible Work-Life Balance has not only become common place now, but is a “perk” that a lot of us are seeking in our jobs. More people than ever are looking for a career that fits in their life, instead of the other way around. But how do you actually figure out if a new opportunity can provide you with the work/life balance you are desperately seeking?

  • 20+ Apps That Transform Your Smartphone Into An On-the-Go Office

    Written by Marisol Dahl Raise your hand if you spend the entire workday in your office, at your desk. No one? Only a few? That’s not surprising. With our jobs more mobile, more global, and more on-the-go than ever, we’re spending less time in the office and more time out on the field. We’re hopping on planes, meeting new colleagues at coffee shops, and hosting conference calls while cooking dinner. You may not always have the luxury of a decked-out and teched-out office at your fingertips, but there are times when no matter where you are, you just gotta get stuff done. Here…
  • One Obvious Way to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution that You Probably Missed

    2 Feb 2015 | 6:47 am
    By Davis Nguyen All right everyone, January is over. How are your New Year’s resolutions coming along? Is it smooth sailing? A bit of a struggle? Have you already forgotten? For the longest time, I found myself setting the same New Year’s resolution year after year. Most of my life, my friends and family would remind me to watch what I ate and suggested maybe I should take an extra gym period. It was their way of hinting that I was on the heavier side of the scale. Every year in high school, I placed weight loss as a New Year’s goal and at the end of each year, I would…

    Written by Jenny Blake Greetings from Ubud, Bali, where I’m living for the month of January . . . sadly for just a few more days! For the logistics of planning a trip here, check out The Nuts and Bolts of Living in Bali for a Month. I knew I felt like an iPhone on red battery when I arrived, but had no idea just how deep that “red” feeling actually went. I couldn’t even bear to crack open my laptop for the first week — I felt a crazy-strong pull to take a break from all obligations and rediscover the 50,000 foot perspective on my life and work. After all, that…

    It’s Creative Writing Wednesday! Only a few more days until the glorious weekend. Or, if you’re like me and work in retail, trying to make it through until your one weekend day off. This week I wanted to share my journal with all of you. I promise there’s no dirty secrets to reveal or any juicy gossip, but there’s plenty of writing, scraping, and silly drawings. It is a fantastic place to write down all of my ideas, short poems, and begin stories that have developed in my mind. But what’s all of this have to do with creative writing? Well, everything. As a…

    It’s Wednesday! Time to get creative. Recently I have been suffering from the worst of the creative diseases. Writer’s block. I’m handling it fine so far, but some days are better than others. No one ever knows what causes this dreaded ailment, it could be the stress of life, lack of ideas, lack of sleep, anything. Personally, I think it is because I have not set aside more time to write. I also have a terrible habit of overanalyzing just about everything in my life, which is not conducive to creative work. It can be difficult to remove my ego from the equation and just do…
  • CWW: I Love Writing

    11 Feb 2015 | 12:46 pm
    Happy Wednesday! This week I’m posting my poem “anonymous.” No there’s no Shakespeare reference or any type of concealed subversion. The poem is a reminder of the varying reasons I love to write, particularly the concept of anonymity. In any given poem, short story, personal essay, I can write as honestly as I choose. It can be about a friend, a lover, how I’ve felt, an opinion, the possibilities are endless. That’s what makes writing so wonderful. However, honest writing has the ability to be cleverly hidden under metaphors, allegories, and well lies.
  • Defining Millennials: An Interview

    danimary
    6 Feb 2015 | 1:23 pm
    There is a deeply negative perspective towards this generation. The Millennials, a generation of instant gratification, lack of confrontational skills, and a bad habit of entitlement. We are the social media generation with complete understanding of technology and little acknowledgement of personal interaction. The Millennials have had much more discouraging criticism than constructive. Most of the members of the generation will play right into disapproving judgements. They will be young, wild, and free; trade suit and ties for jeans and hoodies, cherish diversity over conformity. Shelby…

    4 Feb 2015 | 5:07 pm
    Welcome to another Creative Writing Wednesday! This weeks piece is something I’ve written recently and it’s rather close to my heart because it’s a poem I’m very proud of. It’s not that the poem is about any particular person, however, it is one of the first poems I’ve written where I openly use the female pronoun. I came out my junior year of high school by telling my parents that I had a date that Friday night, with a girl. “Alright,” was all they said. I think they also asked me if I needed to borrow the car. There was no discussion or raised…
