I graduated this weekend with my Masters in Arts Management from Columbia College Chicago. I’m still letting that sink in. What an exciting time to be at a crossroads, going from full-time student to full-time employee. Not everything went as planned, but plans unfold the way they do for a reason and in its own season. One thing I did have control over though, was my legacy. Before leaving Columbia, I saw the need for my contirbutions and impact to continue past my graduation. How does one do that? How can you make this work for your own legacy, at school or on the job?
March 14, 2017, I had a mental breakdown. I was slouched over in the office of my professor stressing out about an upcoming large-scale event on campus. I’m usually calm and collected, the one organized person during the craziest time of the semester. However, this time, I was hours away from jetting off to SXSW from Chicago and nowhere near prepared to leave all of my responsibilities behind. This was the result of very poor planning. So how did I overcome it? It was very simple and I have to share it with you! This will help you get your life together…for real this time!
