Business Book Club: Predictably Irrational

Dan Ariely’s ‘Predictably Irrational’ is an enjoyable combination of consumer behavior and psychology. The book, originally published in 2008, explains why people act in a way counterintuitive to their best interests, no matter how irrational it might appear. Ariely’s book focuses on the predictable patterns people form, and thus ‘Predictably Irrational’ is a fun way to[…]


Business Book Club: Made To Stick

Originally published April 2016 I love marketing. I also love reading. So when I realized that out of all the books I’ve previously been reading about business (Never Eat Alone, The 4-Hour Workweek, etc.) not a single one was specifically about marketing, I was shocked. And while those books definitely provided great advice and inspiration, I thought it was time[…]


Learning History a New Way

Originally published February 2016 One of the best history classes I took last semester was amazing not because of the content, not because of the teacher (although Regina Kazyulina was a pretty great professor), but because of the different approach taken to teach the material. I learned history in an entirely new way, a way that did not include textbooks.[…]


Business Book Club: I Shouldn’t Be Telling You This

Originally published September 2015 People can be inspiring in many ways.

Business Book Club: The 4-Hour Workweek

Originally published August 2015 My dream job is one where I have the opportunity to travel. I am itching to explore the world, to experience different cultures, and to get paid to do so would make it that much better. When “The 4-Hour Workweek” by Timothy Ferriss was suggested to me, it seemed like it would be[…]


Business Book Club: Leave Your Mark

Originally published July 2015 Of all the books I’ve read on business this summer, “Leave Your Mark: Land Your Dream Job. Kill it in Your Career. Rock Social Media.” by Aliza Licht is my favorite as of yet. Licht is entertaining while dishing out some very real, very necessary advice on what you need to do (and[…]


Business Book Club: #GIRLBOSS

Originally published July 2015 For the second book in my quest to learn something over the summer, I turned to Sophia Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal, with her book “#GIRLBOSS.” #GIRLBOSS is part biography, part instruction manual on how to be a #GIRLBOSS, which, as Amoruso describes it, “is someone who’s in charge of her own[…]


Business Book Club: Never Eat Alone

Originally published July 2015 Even with my job at Victoria’s Secret as a sales specialist, I have a lot of free time. And me being me, I need to do something to fill it. While at first I sat down and binged watched some TV shows, reveling in my freedom, after about a week I[…]
