Have you ever gotten to the “Skills” section of your resumé and been a little embarrassed?
Sometimes you want to say, “Sure, my skills are pretty much talking and writing and doing normal stuff, but REALLY, REALLY WELL.” Yeah, you can’t really put that either. You need proof. You need quantification. More

Good afternoon, I am [name redacted] and I was actually referred to you by a person on Reddit. I recently asked a question about being an egg donor and seeing as you have been one I was wondering what the pro’s and con’s were to it. If there was anything they are not telling me in the ads? Your response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Ah, interesting! What don’t they tell you in the ads? Allow me. More
Do I even have to write an introduction to this post? Who doesn’t need more moneymaking ideas? More
It’s December! People are getting lazy. You can use this time to do a lot of baking or whatever it is that people do, or you can use this time to sprint ahead of everyone, and get some mental space to design the new year to your liking.
Now, Start by brainstorming the most awesome life imaginable. More
It’s well-known that a lot of male boxers don’t have sex before a fight. Apparently, a nice, full set of balls gives you that aggressive edge in the ring.
What do women boxers do? I like to think they seduce a pool boy at the hotel every hour or so and steal his fundamental life-energy. Or they have sex with their girlfriends, read some bell hooks, have a nice cup of herbal tea, and get a good night’s sleep. More

These days, everybody growing up wants to know one question: is college worth it? More
How is negotiating different for women? Well, for one, we do less of it and should do more of it. I’m sure you’ve heard that. I’m sure you’ve also read that people (both men and other women) like us less when we negotiate, although I have a hard time caring when I have enough money to drink Macallan 18 the way I used to drink Sutter Home.
I think there may be a few other gender differences that are less talked about. More
I am really tired of business advice that, if followed precisely, allows women to attempt to compete to be second place at best. Let’s make our voices deeper! Let’s take up more space when we sit! Let’s clench our fists when we walk into a room, as though we’re ready for a fistfight! I have actual boxing experience (see Bullish Life: What I Learned From Being Captain of My College Debate and Boxing Teams at the Same Time), and I am not going to win any kind of fistfight, ever. This is a losing game. More
Are you really at the very peak of success when your profession requires you to drag your sorry-ass, bloated, nauseated body into an office by 9am every morning and to stick around until evening — regardless of how much value you’ve created or whether you’re in the best place to accomplish your work — for show and solidarity? More
In a volunteer job, you don’t really have a lot of power — you can’t really promote or fire the guy, right? But even if you were all being paid, it is TOTALLY likely and normal that you would be asked to manage someone that you don’t have the ability to promote or fire. So you (often) can’t manage via a system of threats and rewards. More
“I ended up sending myself to a six month program to learn web development/programming, and have secured a job making $27,560 MORE than I was in my last position. I got the job one month before I even graduated.” More
If you don’t want to work in your chosen field, then changing course isn’t stepping back. I mean, it’s stepping back in the sense you would step back from a fire. Or from marrying the wrong person. It’s kind of the only path to where you want to go, right? So there’s no point in thinking about stepping “back.” More
