School, work, life itself teaches us things. Often, we’re asked this dreaded question by others: “What did you learn?” I want to share my experience about my time here at Lady in the Red Dress PR/Marketing and discuss what I’ve learned, not only about myself, but about professionalism, being a responsible employee, and a number of other lessons I plan to take with me into the future. First, let me tell you all a little about me. For those who don’t know, my name is Dre Hill.
Have you ever heard the phrase: “You betta network to boost your net worth” If you haven’t heard that phrase before, in any iteration, consider yourself having heard it now. I believe that it comes as no surprise to many that though what you know is important, who you know is equally as important. What you know may keep you in the door, but who you know may be how you got the door open in the first place. Now I believe that college students and up-and-coming professionals hav
Work can be stressful. It tugs and pulls at you. It can seem like it runs you ragged and bury you into the ground. There’s conflict and company politics. The point is, the job can give you headaches and heart palpitations, in a bad way. It is important to find and maintain a balance in one’s life between work and everything else. With that in mind, I’d like to offer up three tips to help assist you with managing your work and the life you lead outside of your career. Here are
There’s this big idea in society that we’re supposed to have life figured out. The sooner we’ve nailed down a plan, the sooner we can execute and claim our prize, right? Wealth and financial freedom, fame, success, self-employment. Whatever our prize(s) look like to us, the sooner we put our noses to the grindstone the sooner we achieve them. That’s how it all works, right? Not necessarily. Life is fickle, plans are often fleeting, and our expectations must often stay fluid,
What is your why? That sounds like a pretty simple question. The answer should readily roll off the tongue. For a lot of people, it doesn’t. The reality is that for a lot of individuals out there, the answer to that question is convoluted by uncertainty and a gamut of other thoughts and feelings. For those who don’t know what I mean by “what is your why?”, I implore you to keep reading. I’m about to explain everything. For as long as I can remember, my parents would always to
Some people like to visualize life as if it were a game. Duck-Duck-Goose, Tag, Chess, Monopoly, Halo, Family Feud, etc. The primary objective of any game is to win, and most players would certainly like to have fun along the way. We view life in a similar light. We all want to win, whatever winning means to us all individually, and we want to have fun while doing so. But what we often don’t think about either in games or in life, are some of the risks that we might need to ta

Finding your chill. What does that mean? So... many people in my life have suggested that I develop a greater balance between business and recreation.. not that I don't know how to have a good time but that I can be a little rigid when I have a lot on my mind. Me? I know... I am just as shocked as you, but my ears are always open and I am always seeking ways to better my human experience. I am going to tell you what "Finding My Chill" is proving to mean to me as time goes by.
Just as a flower must develop at it's very own pace along it's journey, this is true for us and our personal journeys. A rose will bloom in it's time, and it will die in it's time.
