How to Build Your Own Vision Board


Hey friends! My sister and I went to a girls’ event this week through a company in Columbus, Ohio, called the Beauty Boost. They have locations throughout Ohio and Pennsylvania, and the founder, Rachel, puts together amazing events for women of all ages. I haven’t gone to many of the events, but all of them have I’ve been to have been fun and I’ve left inspired. This week the event was no different! I made a vision board for the first time, I want to say, six years ago at a retreat for a language business I worked with on the side. I LOVED making my board and actually still have it. However, I haven’t made one since then, so it was TIME. So, if you’ve never made a vision board, here’s how to in a couple steps!

#Girlboss Podcasts I’m Lovin’


So I must have been living under a rock the past, I dunno, five years.  Or however many years my friends have been trying to get me on the podcast bandwagon.  The first one I heard of was Serial.  All my teacher friends were raving about it and even were doing lessons about it in their classes.  I also recall the beginning of summer this year listening to a teacher professional development about bringing podcasts to our classrooms, and while I was slightly intrigued, I just couldn’t get into it.  I liked reading what I learned.  I liked listening to music in the car during my thirty minute commute every morning and night.  I would not be a podcaster (is that a word?)…until now.

This summer I was introduced to the world of Rachel Hollis.  If you don’t know who she is, stop reading this post, log into Facebook or Insta and search her. She is the ultimate girl boss goddess, showing women everywhere that hard work can lead to...
