Why I am starting my own business

I feel like I’ve been entrepreneurial my entire life. I’ve also had way too many jobs in the past few years for me to consider a long term corporate life. Oftentimes I feel unchallenged by what I am doing, or what I have done is not aligned with the vision I have for my life/my values. After multiple attempts of trying to stay in a…

How to make a vision board

Call me old fashioned… but I like to take time to make vision boards so I can stay focused and remind myself of what I’m working on/would like to have (more of) in my life. Here’s a quick video of me making my latest vision board and an explanation of how to make one: Yes, I am kind of old-school and take the time to…

The best advice my grandmother gave me

My mom sent me a photo of my great grandmother today. She’s 109 years old. She lives in a nursing home in a somewhat rural area of South Korea. The last time I saw her was in 2011. Before that, the last time I had seen her was when I was about 3 years old. During those 16 ish years that I hadn’t seen my…

Unemployment agenda and to do list

I’m starting a new role soon but I’ve been unemployed for the last week and a half. Usually unemployment conjures up feelings of unworthiness and anxiety, but this was a very intentional choice I made on my end (a blogpost how I left with no job lined up here). During my time off I haven’t been traveling or doing something extravagant but I have been…

I left my job without a next step

I left my job without a next step and honestly, this isn’t anything new. I’ve had 4 jobs in the two-ish years I’ve been here in LA, and every job since I arrived to LA I have willingly resigned from. I moved from NYC to LA without a job (which was not ideal but just how things go) and everytime I felt that the job…

My vision for 2020

I’ve been talking a lot about breathwork in person and on instagram, but haven’t written about it on the blog… yet. I’ll fill you in as soon as I can but wanted to start with this post, because it doesn’t require much explaining. Long story short, I attended a breathwork healer training workshop last weekend (11/4-5) which was two full days of self reflection, sharing…

Instagram accounts that will inspire you

I am moved by words sometimes more than photos. Photos are beautiful yes, but words make me feel. There are a few accounts that I am not disappointed by whenever I stop by their page or whenever something that they post shows up on my feed.  Today I wanted to share them with you. They’re much more than your typical quote accounts in that they…

The blog is different now in business and life

I started this blog in 2012 when I didn’t really have an idea what I was going to use it for. All I knew was that the name “In Business and Life” was something that resonated with me and was something I wanted to achieve in my lifetime. To be the same person in business and life. To be able to make a business out…

Hidden Gems in San Diego

I went to San Diego for the first time during a 3 day weekend back in April, and had the best time exploring La Jolla, Coronado, Gaslamp and Little Italy (full blogpost here)…. but for a day trip during Labor Day Weekend (less than 24 hours) my boyfriend and I explored more random, hidden gem like locations in San Diego. Whenever I visit/travel somewhere I…

What to pack for the beach

I can’t believe summer (at least August) is over. Did you get your beach fix? If you follow me on Instagram you know I spent my birthday weekend a few weeks back in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. I pride myself in being a pretty good packer and wanted to share with you what I took with me that made time at the beach that much…
