Uncomfortable: Freedom of Speech | Does it Still Exist?

More than five different Conservative events, on college campuses, have been cancelled since the beginning of this year due to violence, or the threat of violence against the scheduled speakers.
Miloย Yiannopoulos had two events cancelled at the beginning of the year. One at UC Davis in January and one at UC Berkeley in February.
At the Berkeley event – all hell broke loose, literally. The protestors caused about $100,000 in damage – breaking windows, throwing rocks, and setting a generator and some trees on fire on campus. Continue reading “Uncomfortable: Freedom of Speech | Does it Still Exist?”

I went from being sad, to being mad, to feeling like a piece of garbage. Having a job has always been a part of my identity. So, what do you do when a piece of you is removed from the picture?

Uncomfortable: Business Battlefields | 3 Tips to Not Lose Your Soul

I took a business ethics class during my undergrad, and the first day of class my teacher walked in and said, “So, this class is a complete oxymoron”. We all laughed – but at that time I believed what she said to be true. We were in New York, and how could you not think about Wall Street or the banking scandal a few years ago…?
