    How to Build a Dream Career with Dia Darling

    29/03/2020 Duración: 28min

    We throw around this term "dream career," but you might be wondering "What’s possible?" Is a dream career attainable or is it a pipe dream?  I know I’ve wondered what’s possible- especially once you find yourself on a certain path for a certain amount of time. Do you need to stay on that path or can you pivot into something that will bring you more joy  - is there anything out there that might bring you more joy you’re not paying attention to right now? It’s hard to know when you’re on the right path. But in truth is there is no right path. You will never be 100 percent sure the path you’re on is the right path. And that’s ok. That’s why we’re here to ask questions. What we pay attention to matters and so does asking the right questions. Which is what today is about. My guest has some action-orientated ideas to help you start making goals and taking incremental action so you can start heading in the direction of a career of your dreams. Dia Darling is the podcast creator and host of Creatives Crushi

  • The Fun in Frugality

    The Fun in Frugality

    22/03/2020 Duración: 14min

    Being frugal gets a bad reputation. Being called thrifty or economical or, God forbid, cheap is just such an insult. It makes everyone think of their super miserly friend who won’t pay his share, is stingy with tips, and who is always mooching off of other people. Why did that one person have to give frugality such a bad reputation? Frugality can actually be kind of fun.  Today we’re talking about how to be frugal -- and why it’s important. How to save money by simple tricks and hacks and swaps to utilizing deal and discount sites. If you do everything on the list, it will be impossible not to start saving toward your goals. I created this episode before the Covid 19 outbreak but it's important to find ways to be frugal more than ever - especially when the economy is in such a tailspin and jobs are uncertain.  I’m the deal person in my friend group. I’m the person with the Google doc of all the happy hours in the city and will happily share it around. I know of the free, cheap, and fun activiti

    How to Pay Off Loans and How to Use Credit Cards

    01/03/2020 Duración: 12min

    Are you saddled with student loans? It's an awful feeling. It could feel like you’re in a deep hole and that doesn’t have the tools to get out. The path to paying it off may seem endless. Today's episode aims to help you start feeling in control of your student loans.   We also talk about credit cards, which can be useful, but they can also be super sketchy. They’re a powerful tool when used correctly, making commerce more convenient and easy, but they also offer a lot of temptation to spend more than you have. If you are debt-free, credit cards might be a good tool to track your expenses, build your credit score, and offer a layer of security so you don’t have to carry around cash everywhere. If you treat credit cards like the tool they are and pay them off every month, you’ll be one step closer to building a credit history for yourself. Here are some things you should definitely know about having credit cards. In today's episode, we’re talking about both how to pay off student loans and how to use cred

  • How to Craft Your Elevator Pitch

    How to Craft Your Elevator Pitch

    26/01/2020 Duración: 13min

    Imagine the CEO of your dream job company just walked into the elevator. You now have 16 floors to make an impression, get noticed, and get hired. What do you say? Do you panic, convinced that this person won’t care, is too busy, too important, or not interested? No! You have 30 seconds to be bold and get noticed. What do you do? Ok, so maybe this rarely happens in an elevator, but an elevator pitch serves a very specific purpose, whether you’re physically inside an elevator or not. Elevator pitches help you briefly outline who you are, your experience, and what you’re looking for. This pitch could happen anywhere you’re meeting new people—at networking event, a bar, waiting in line to buy coffee, you name it. Networking opportunities happen a lot. So, hone the pitch, craft it to be really spectacular, and practice. You want to quickly and concisely tell someone new who you are, what you do, and what you want. Today we're talking all about how to craft your elevator pitch. We talk about the importance of an e

    So you got a new job or internship - awesome. Those first few months are critical to show up, work hard and make a good impression. But how do you do that exactly? Even if you’ve had another internship or job, every job is distinct. During your first few months, your goal is to get the lay of the land.

But you also want to make a kick-ass impression and underscore why they hired you in the first place.  We talk about how to make those first few months count from observing everything, to how to communicate, to what you do if you make a mistake and even how to manage your stress of starting a new job.  KICK ASS IN LIFE FB: https://www.facebook.com/kickassinyourlife KICK ASS IN LIFE INSTAGRAM: https://www.instagram.com/kickassin.life SHOW NOTES:  http://kickassin.life/show-notes/firstmonths NEW EBOOK KICK ASS WITH YOUR MONEY: https://amzn.to/2pcoBYJ Send me a voice message: https://anchor.fm/kick-ass-in-life/mess

She’s traveled all around the world including all continents and 70 countries.

She recently became an Explorer’s Club fellow, alongside explorers such as likes of Teddy Roosevelt, Elon Musk and Buzz Aldrin.

  • How to Negotiate Your Salary

    How to Negotiate Your Salary

    13/10/2019 Duración: 14min

    Negotiation is hard. You are awesome for even trying! Many people don’t and they lose out of thousands of dollars over the long term. Don’t settle—you know how hard you’ll work. It would really suck to get in a job you’re working your ass off for, just to know Jim in the cubicle next to you with the same job and title gets paid $10k more because he asked for it. Would you be happy about starting a new job under those circumstances? It’s also financially smart in the long term. By not negotiating to start with your first job, you can lose out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in the long run. Don’t leave money on the table. They expect you’ll negotiate. It’s all part of the process. In this episode, we talk all about how to set yourself up for success when negotiating your salary. We talk about how to determine what to ask for in your salary, how to strategically ask so they say yes, the additional negotiables you can build a case for (think vacation, title, flex time), how to build up your confidence to mak

    How to Create a Resume that Gets Noticed Fast

    29/09/2019 Duración: 12min

    A resume is THE most important tool in your marketing and branding toolbox, but most people are lazy and do a not-so-great job of writing one. Their resume looks like everyone else’s, includes generic duties and responsibilities, and invariably flies under the radar of a recruiter. Boring resumes simply don’t get noticed. They go straight into the black hole of applications. You need to create an excellent one (and it’s really not that hard—I promise!). Think about how recruiters see your resume. They typically spend less than six seconds on each resume they review—six seconds! That’s not a lot of time. At all. If you’ve gotten through the black hole and a real person sees your resume, congratulations! That’s a huge win. Now you need to have a kick-ass resume that lasts past those first six seconds and gets you an interview. In this episode, I talk about how to craft the perfect resume that gets noticed quickly. From talking about your job wins to designing it, your resume is the NUMBER ONE tool in your toolb
