Four Career Tips From Mount Everest Climber

mountainsWe refuse to live and work in a silo. After all, who would choose to block out the world?

Need Inspiration? Here’s a Blast From the Past With Amy Poehler’s Harvard Speech

It’s that time of year again! As various commencement speeches circulate online from graduation ceremonies, one speech in particular resonates with us from two years ago.

Parks and Recreation star Amy Poehler dished some advice to Harvard students:

Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life. No one is here today because they did it on their own. Okay, maybe Josh, but he’s just a straight up weirdo. You’re all here today because someone gave you strength. Helped you. Held you in the palm of their hand. God, Allah, Buddha, Gaga.”
