Friday Favorites

AT BLOG GRAPHICHello, Friday Friends! What’s the best thing that happened to you this week? Well, I have news…I have accepted an Executive in Residence (fancy) position at the University of Arkansas…meaning I’ll be teaching Destination Marketing to juniors and seniors this Fall at the U!

I’m super excited for the opportunity and along with growing TTG…I’ll be too busy to think about my empty nest. (sad face emoji)

Now let’s get to the favorites:

☞ When you get big like Lebron, You need to give big like Lebron. 

☞ I need to journal more….maybe I can find 10 minutes to micro-journal. 

☞ You know I love carpool karaoke…FLOTUS loves to rock out in the car. 

Being mindful about the words we use…good stuff!

☞ I love Bitmoji and I love Snapchat and now they are together. (join me on Snapchat: ? allysontwiggs)

You will want to follow these ladies on Facebook, like yesterday. (insert belly laughs)

Enjoy your weekend!

 

Friday Favorites 6.24.16

AT BLOG GRAPHICSay hello to the last Friday of June…can you believe it? Lately, June has felt like August so maybe we’ll get lucky and August will feel like June…probably not though.

So, I needed a new, bigger desk so I ordered one from Office Depot and then spent an evening putting it together along with a filing cabinet.  Let me tell you, I hate putting together furniture! It’s so tedious and time consuming.  Assembling it, I thought about those people who have to write the directions, they must be pretty intelligent folks.  I could not write those directions if I had to.  Now I have a new beautiful desk and filing cabinet, plus a blister on my thumb and sore hands from using a screw driver 3,982 times.  (ps: this is not a favorite!)

But these are…enjoy!

Need tips on how to pitch your business, product or idea? 

What to do if you hate your job…I did, so I started my own business.

I do love a notebook/journal…gotta learn how to bullet journal.

☞ Speaking of starting your own business….here’s what not to do. 

I was so happy that Cleveland won!

Have a great weekend…since next Friday is the start of a long, holiday weekend…I’ll skip it and return on Friday, July 8th.  Stay cool.
