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.

Have zero dollars saved? Let’s fix that

When I first moved to NYC, anxiety plagued me when I went out with friends. I hated birthday dinners where the check was ultimately split evenly, despite the fact I didn’t order or partake in the appetizers. I disliked meeting people for drinks because a $7 beer took away from what I had allocated next day’s lunch. At every turn, I saw temptations to spend money and it caused me stress, anxiety and a feeling like I was “less than.” I felt stuck.

Interns Don’t Work from Home

In any new job there is a probationary period to make sure you’re performing up to the standards of the position. Then once you settle in and your boss realizes your value, you can start taking some advantages such as vacation time or being able to work from home. Unfortunately, an internship is a probationary period that never ends
