4 Cool Careers That Don’t Take Years of Training

A few years ago, I wanted to start over with my career. I'd been in public relations off and on for over 25 years. When my oldest child left home, I had more time to devote to building my career, but I just couldn't get jazzed about cranking up my PR consultancy.

I have changed over the years. My interests and values have shifted. I loved working in public relations when I was younger and childless. I got to travel, work with celebrities and fashion, live in New York, and meet all kinds of interesting people.

Paralyzed By Your To-Do List? A Quick Guide to Prioritizing

“Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the noble art of leaving things undone. The wisdom of life consists in the elimination of non-essentials.” ~Lin Yu Tang

Do you have so many tasks, projects or interests that you are paralyzed by confusion and indecision?

Are there so many things that you love to do, want to do, or have to do — that you don't know where to start first?

If you are like me, your inclination is to do what is easiest or most fun. But then a nagging feeling lurks around me about the chores that need my attention, and it undermines the pleasure of the task at hand.

How To Design Your Own Life of Adventure

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own.  No apologies or excuses.  No one to lean on, rely on, or blame.  The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it.  This is the day your life really begins.” – Bob Moawad

This is a guest post by Jasmine Stephenson of An Apple a Day.

My name is Jasmine. I graduated from the University of South Florida at the age of 21 with a bachelor's degree in psychology.
