Episode 53: When a double major or minor is the right (or wrong) choice 

In this episode, I share things to consider when you are trying to decide if you should add that Double Major or minor. Sometimes it's not the best choice! Other times, it makes so much sense! Bottomline - YOU get to decide. Just make sure you are thinking through the decision. 

Consider: 

-Time 

-Money 

-Classes you will need to take 

-Your goals! 

Listen for more insight :)

Episode 048:Discovering Your Strengths in College with Career Development Advisor Kristin Williams

Highlights from the episode: 

-Red flags you are in the wrong major 

-Understanding your personal values 

-Saying yes to the important things 

-Using your strengths in a variety of careers

-Strengths can help you explore and bring more self-awareness 

 

Memorable Quotes: 

-"When we get to know our strengths, it opens up doors of possibilities" 

-"I didn't let myself switch (majors) because I felt like I had something to prove to myself... maybe to my family"

-"I would show up to things and I wouldn't be myself because I would be so stressed out... But I would be there because I said I would be there." 

The only recommendation Kristin had for finding a job - Don't put so much pressure on finding one thing.

Take Control of Your College Experience

Take Control of Your College Experience

April 8, 2019

It's time for you to drive. In Episode 047, we talk about how to take control of your college experience. I break this down into three areas: 

Clarity - in what you are working towards (major, career, life goals, purpose). 

Confidence - focusing on what you need to do in college to become the person you want to be after college (who do you want to become?) 

Community - finding your group - to support you and be real with you. 

What else would help you take control of your college experience?

Mini Talk and Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone in College

Mini Talk and Stepping Out of Your Comfort Zone in College

March 25, 2019

In this episode, I did sort of a mini Ted Talk, called a Meg Talk at a Women's conference at University of Colorado, Boulder. I wanted to share it with you all, mainly because I was super scared, but I still did it. I also talk about the importance of stepping out of your comfort zone and finding out what is possible for you. 

Would love to hear your thoughts!
