I’m a Millennial and We’re Begging to be Heard

At almost every event I attend with friends, the topic of work always seems to creep in.

5 Strategies to Slow Down

Shortly after high school graduation (many moons ago), I moved from my hometown in Omaha, Nebraska to the “Wild West.” I was hypnotized by the towering mountains, the “lost” lakes, and the ever-steady pace of the Cowboy way.
