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!

There are always ways that interviews trip you up and make you fumble and you lose your self-confidence.

Which Friends Should I Hold Onto?

You’ve had a lot of friends that you went to school with – which is awesome. When you move to a new city, you could be wondering who to keep and who to let go. You try for a while to keep in touch with your old friends but the busier you get, the harder it will be. Also, you might feel like you don’t have a ton in common with them anymore.
