The Best Jobs for College Students

I didn’t have a job my first semester of college. I lived the quintessential college life of going to class, going to parties, studying, and napping. Was it awesome? Yes. Was I broke? I sure as hell was. By the time my second semester rolled around, it became clear that I was going to need a job. My second semester, I had been offered a job coaching soccer at my high school.

Learning To Leap {Jobs}

Leaping is not something that’s easily attainable for those of us that move out of fear, trepidation, or paralysis. It’s hard to coax our bodies to move forward when our minds want to do anything and everything but just that. It’s hard when the thing ahead of you is the unknown.

At one time or another, we all have something that creeps up into our lives to make us feel guilty as parents. My biggest battle with guilt comes in the form of being a working mom.
