5 Ways To Jazz Up That Workspace

5 Ways To Jazz Up That Workspace

By Taryn Rosenberg Picture this: you’re six months into a job, and while you had every intention to make your desk the shining, organized desk of envy, it’s now just a place where your coffee mug, sticky notes and banana peel live. Or maybe you dreamed of jazzing up your home office, but instead, your workstation is covered in mail and looks NOTHING like the images you pinned on Pinterest. We’ve all been there. We envy the days where getting new school supplies was crazy exciting, and we especially pine…

What Does A Social Media Manager Do All Day?

What Does A Social Media Manager Do All Day?

By Taryn Rosenberg “It took thirty-eight years before 50 million people gained access to radios. It took television thirteen years to earn an audience that size. It took Instagram a year and a half.” – Gary Vaynerchuk (Social Media Maven) I’ll never forget the moment my fifth grade teacher told us that most of our future jobs (AKA “what we want to be when we grow up”) hadn’t even been invented yet. My mind was blown. At the time, I daydreamed about working on flying cars and robots that could…

7 Items More Memorable Than A Business Card

7 Items More Memorable Than A Business Card

By Taryn Rosenberg It’s 2016 and let’s face it: the concept of business cards is totally antiquated. If someone wants to exchange contact information, it would be second nature to pull out your phone and make it happen. Plus, if you know a company name, you can likely find an individual’s email address within a few clicks on Google. It’s just not hard to get in touch anymore. Not to mentioned Linkedin, right? Instead, we use the words, “take my card” at networking events and meetups. It’s an indirect way…

Hello iHeartMedia! What a Journey it Will Be.

Hello iHeartMedia! What a Journey it Will Be.

By Rachel Herskovitz Today, I start a new chapter of my career. But before I move ahead to this next phase, I thought it would be important to think, reflect, and understand the lessons of the past four years at American Express. The pride of working at an iconic brand. American Express was founded in 1850 as shipping company, not as the credit card company we know today. Throughout its 150 years plus of existence, the brand has consistently re-imagined what it could be. As a former employee of a…

This is WHY We Celebrate Labor Day

This is WHY We Celebrate Labor Day

By Zack Rosenberg An Olive Branch..? While many refer to Labor Day as the end of Summer, we wouldn’t be much of a career oriented blog if we didn’t delve into the true meaning of the day. So light up your grills, enjoy the day off, and remember why it is Labor Day exists. A Celebration of Labor It’s really easy to think the way things are is the way it always was, right?

Interview with Dan Schawbel, Founder of Millennial Branding

By Zack Rosenberg (originally posted on 9/6/2011) Rachel and I had the pleasure of interviewing Dan Schawbel and learned a lot. He’s a millennial, a personal branding expert, author, and so much more.

Here is what Dan had to say! 1) How did you become a branding expert? The Internet was picking up when I was in middle school and I started creating websites…

6 (Easy) Ways To Go The Extra Mile!

By Zack Rosenberg “Successful and unsuccessful people do not vary greatly in their abilities. They vary in their desires to reach their potential.” – John Maxwell It always seems to be the mile least traveled, right? It isn’t very often you hear great stories of triumph that start with, “so I was doing the bare minimum and…”. C’mon. We know better than this. Yet each and everyday that’s the type of effort many people make. NO. Nobody wants to do it, but that’s exactly the point. Hustle. To me, this…

5 Books That Made Me Better A Business Pro!

5 Books That Made Me Better A Business Pro!

By Rachel Herskovitz There are a lot of reasons to read a book. I tend to use the time to lose myself in a world that I don’t deal with everyday and hit on different places or times. When I discuss this with Zack, he always has a tendency to find books that teach him about what he is doing everyday so he can better himself in work or leadership. There is something really smart to that, and I’ve taken it on the past few years to add 2-3 business…

Risk Taker with a Title: Sales

Risk Taker with a Title: Sales

By Mollie Garza “Where there is a will, there is a way.” This is something my mother taught me that I live by. My mother was an immigrant from El Salvador and as a single woman moved our family to the states to live the American Dream. I was taught to get out there, kick butt and never take “no” for an answer.  I now live in New York, hang my hat on selling to “Fortune 500” companies and aspire to be an entrepreneur. It’s funny when I look back…
