New year, new goals! If you’re ready to launch your side hustle or go full force as a solopreneur, understanding your personality and your imperfections may help you get there that much faster.

Valentine’s Day is all about showering your special someone with love. But what about the best friend who’s always been there for you — through the career break-throughs and relationship break-ups, the Gayle to your Oprah? Thankfully, there is now a day to celebrate the enduring awesomeness of female friendship — Galentine’s Day — an unofficial holiday celebrated on February 13th.
With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, this is the time to start planning that perfect celebration with your partner. A good relationship is made up of a lot of day-to-day routine sprinkled with meaningful moments, and February 14th provides a great opportunity to strengthen your bond with your partner by doing something really special for them.

They’re so helpful that they practically did the lazy team members' work for them. At the end of the project, they were exhausted and disappointed, as those other team members didn't put in anywhere near the hours or thought they needed to.

“I love me, I love me not. I love me, I love me not.” Introverts, does this sound like the voice in your head as it nears Valentine’s Day—or maybe every day?
Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate the people you love or appreciate in your life. But how much do you appreciate your own talents, strengths and unique experiences that make up who you are?
