Tips for Finding Out What You Are Supposed to be Doing in Life - How to Notice Your "SPARK"

Posted by Ali Powell on May 20, 2015 9:00:00 PM

I have always thought that I was meant for something bigger. I have always thought that I was meant for something more. But, what is more? What is better? I still don't know and that is the dilemma that I face. I think many people (of all ages) face this as well. 

What am I supposed to be doing in life?

There is a new kind of leadership brewing for millennial women at work and it's not aspiring to the c-suite

Posted by Ali Powell on Apr 3, 2015 10:55:28 AM

Going through my morning ritual of reading The BroadSheet today I found an article about how more and more women are not hoping or looking to become part of the C suite. @kayelbee, thank you for writing this article today. It definitely spurred me to think about what leadership really means in our companies today.

The New Trophy Wife is not Actually a Trophy but a Reminder of What Today's Man Wants in a Relationship

Posted by Ali Powell on Dec 17, 2014 8:42:28 PM

I read an article on the Huffington Post about the "new trophy wife" and what that should mean today. First off take a stab at reading this post about what the new trophy wife really means.  Then we can begin to discuss some ideas around what the ideal girlfriend or wife means these days to a successful man or successful entrepreneur. I truly believe that the idea of what a girlfriend or wife should look like has changed to a man. I am only going to talk to what I see in my life in this post. So just know I am 30 years old and most of my friends and people I associate with are in their 20s and 30s. Some are married, some are single, and some are in relationships.
