Well, when it comes to career advice, she’s equally as passionate. We recently caught up with Lake for an exclusive interview.

1. Stop yearning for Fridays. “Get away from a place where you’re living for Friday and dreading Monday,” she advises. “Find what you love most in life and create a life around that. It’s possible.”

For instance, Lake loves to be artistic and also loves intellectual things like practicing law and helping people. “I found a way to combine all of those things…we can each do this in our own lives. It just takes doing the work.” Read more

‘Undercover Boss’ Flips Premise to Feature Undercover Employees

If you’re a fan of Undercover Boss, you’re accustomed to watching CEOs and owners sport disguises to learn about the inner workings of their company by working among employees.

Tomorrow night apparently things will get flipped upside down! According to our friends at AOL Jobs, returning bosses will send their own workers into the mix in order to check on policies instituted after their first undercover show aired.

Returning bosses will include Menchie’s CEO Amit Kleinberger, Postnet CEO Steve Greenbaum and Twin Peaks co-founder Randy DeWitt. There’s a twist though — in this episode they’ll send employees to spy on the group to see what really goes on.

For instance, in one previous episode DeWitt paid a profane server $5,000 to stop cursing like a sailor on the job. In the upcoming episode it sounds like she may turn into one of his undercover employees.

Per the piece, it’s a first for the show since employees were always kept in the dark. Perhaps now that their bosses are more recognizable than in the past, this makes total sense.
