The Period Project

It was another magazine article that did it. I had just finished reading "Period Power!" by Sara Austin from the December 2016 issue of COSMOPOLITAN and I had that same big feeling I did when I was inspired by SEVENTEEN's article about Beauty Peace Day that led me to create and found BUILD Beauty at...

Goal: College Acceptance Letters

Today's college admission process involves much more than good grades and test scores. Parents and their children need to be thinking about their strategy well before senior year if they intend to compete for an acceptance letter to the college of their choice. The biggest key is to stay strong from start to finish.

Giving Grads the Gift of Financial Literacy

In high school and college, students are taking in loads of information. They're learning the Pythagorean theorem, classical conditioning with Pavlov's dogs, the theory of relativity and much more. They could probably tell you all about ecosystems and the anatomy of the body, but they may have no idea how to make a budget.

Giving to the Right Pockets

Around the holidays, there are a variety of bells that we have come to know: sleigh bells, jingle bells and the charity bells.

Finding the right route to business funding

We've all heard the phrase "Time is money." It's generally accurate, but consider an alternative proposition: Time is more valuable than money. Money can multiply, but time can't.

6 Reasons Why We Don't Like Ourselves When We're 23

Rachel Marshall in Wellness Blink 182 taught us in their song, "What's My Age Again?" that "nobody likes you when you're 23." Now that I am in my third month of being 23, I realize maybe it's not that everybody hates you when you are 23, but 23-year-olds themselves simply hate being 23.
