This quick (and way overdue) post is dedicated to the go-getters, the goal-diggers and young, hardworking professionals.
I used to think that prioritizing work over my personal life was the only way to achieve my career goals. But recently, I concluded that I was wrong.
I entered the world of work in 2006 and boy has it been an adventure.
I’ve had to figure out where my personality, workplace culture and business etiquette intersect. And sure, I’m still figuring out what works and what doesn’t, when and where.
But after seven years, I’ve discovered that there are key things I absolutely, positively need to survive from day to day. Here are seven of them.
Have you ever checked out Piperlime.com and found yourself gawking at Rachel Zoe’s picks?
Seems like that match made in heaven has gotten better, with the two teaming up to try and find the next big stylist.
If you’re that much of a badass at putting looks together, put your skills to the test and enter the styling challenge on piperlime.com.
You could win a huge once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
How huge, you ask? The winner gets to work with Rachel to style a celebrity on the new season of Bravo’s “The Rachel Zoe Project.” In addition, Piperlime will grant the lucky stylist a guest spot on the new Piperlime blog.
Contest closes April 5.
