Hi! I’m Laura with Kick Ass In Life where I help you get hired FAST, be smart with MONEY, and live a HAPPIER and HEALTHIER life.

Why listen to me?

Went from unemployed to doubling my salary in two years

Helped dozens of recent grads find connections, opportunities, and jobs

Created a routine using the best tips and hacks to be happier and healthier and save $$$

Moving to NYC without a job, I wanted to get hired fast and begin a fulfilling career. When I was struggling to find a full-time job, my dad gave me two words that have stuck with me: “Kick Ass.” By repeating this mantra and changing my approach, I secured a full-time job four months after moving to NYC. I now work as a digital video producer at a tv network and love finding ways to challenge myself in my career and in life.

I live frugally without sacrificing my lifestyle to live (and retire) well. I devote my free time to moving my body, eating well, and staying sane in one of the craziest cities in the world. It’s my mission to help interns, recent graduates, and friends with their careers, money and health to help them kick ass too.

If you’re just getting started in your career, I’ve created an essential guide to be successful, richer and happier based on what works. I want to share that approach with you for how to differentiate yourself in a sea of sameness and get hired FAST.

Read, subscribe, and join the conversation to help you maximize your life now for future success.

Ready to kick ass in your life? Let’s get started!

Latest Quick Tips

Ask Yourself Every Day if You Feel Bright

Are you feeling bright? It’s hard. It’s December and crazy busy and the answer is no, you’re probably not feeling too bright right about now. I’m not talking about the holiday spirit, either. I’m talking about that part deep inside of you that feels good when you wake up and go to work, class or otherwise. 

Should You Intern if You’ve Graduated?

Should you intern if you’ve already graduated? This is a question I get A LOT. And I get it. You feel like if you’ve graduated you should get a job immediately. Which is great if you can. But that’s not always the case. Sometimes you just can’t get a company to take a chance on you. But you might be able to get a foot in the door if you intern for them first. 

How to Start a Side Hustle
