There’s More Than What Meets The Eye.

I have neglected my blog the past few weeks, mainly due to the overwhelming amount of work and/or activities that have been going on in my life…most of which have been good things. With that said, it is time to get back to doing something that I find enjoyable: writing.

I have recently started my summer internship at Belk of Conway and it has been quite the experience already. I have made a few observations that I would like to share that may put some things into perspective for my readers and reinforce some things that most may already know.  Continue reading

4 Categories of Challenges.

Tonight I had my managerial finance class. This class has been a genuine struggle for me, but I am making it through and I have learned a lot. My professor is a wise man with lots of “real world” experience in both life and in business. Dr. Smith wanted to give us a few words of wisdom before we parted from his class and into the real world. One thing he said tonight has really gotten me analyzing my life and I wanted to share this with you. I encourage you to make your own analyzation. I think a lot can come from it and changes can be made according to where you need change.

He started by saying that every challenge you face in life falls into one of four categories:
