That is two weeks earlier than the dates they had originally predicted.

You probably already know that doing good work is the single most effective way to show your boss you’re ready for more. (But it’s worth reiterating, because if you skip this step, you’re going to have a hard time getting promoted.) Ideally, you should be consistently exceeding expectations ... Read More

After all, a very restrictive eating plan, paired with long intense exercise, could leave you leaning on muscle mass ... Read More

Believe it or not, the first steps to even having a month to honor women did not begin until the 1980’s. In February of 1980, President Jimmy Carter issued the first Presidential Proclamation declaring the Week of March 8, 1980 as National Women’s History Week. That same year, Representative ...
