• 7 Ways to Grab LinkedIn by the Horns

    This is a repost of an article that I wrote on LinkedIn Publisher. If you would like to see and share the original article, click HERE. Are you ready to give LinkedIn a big ol’ bear hug? Hop in the driver’s seat of the LinkedIn Limited SE? Grab LinkedIn by the horns? No matter which idiom you’d like to use, now is the time to make an impact on this social network. LinkedIn needs our voices. It shouldn’t just be a place for big name influencers, the Ariana Huffingtons and Gary Vaynerchuks of the world. They have great content, but you know who else has meaningful, inspirational experiences to share?…

  • 6 Lessons From Duck Camp

    As a pretty-liberal, city-dwelling twenty-something, I get a couple of odd looks when I say: “Yeah, I’m heading north this weekend to hide in tall grass, shoot at some ducks, and take care of my business in an outhouse.” Each year, our group heads up to northwest Minnesota in hopes of shooting ducks, but really focusing on spending quality time together. We get all decked out in camouflage, and make the journey up to the “Duck Camp.” There is something magical about unplugging from the everyday technological drone and, instead, connecting to the moment and experience of the great outdoors. Time spent around campfire talking about life rather than binging…

  • Friday Feels: Startups and HoneyCrisps

    PREFACE: It is totally Thursday now, but these are my #FridayFeels from last week. WHOOPS! I didn’t get a chance to edit photos, which TBH can take the longest for me.

One of the main reasons that my time felt stretched is that I…

  • Friday Feels: On a Sunday….

    Beautiful internet folks… I am back. After a brief hiatus, I am back with some Friday Feels from the last couple of weeks. I know it is Sunday, but you know what they say… YOLO. Fall came all at once here in Minnesota, and it totally caught me off guard (Yeah, I’m gonna blame my break on the weather…. LOL). But for real, it’s been a busy few weeks.

We ventured up to the North Woods of Wisconsin to do some reno on an ongoing trailer project. Maybe one day…

  • Professional Jack

    I went to a fun blogger event a couple of weeks ago, and I was asked one question that I found so interesting is: “What is your day job?” That got me thinking, maybe I should chit chat about what I do for a living on the blog.┬áIt might spur a column where I talk about myself more… because we all need more of that, right? riiiiight…. This post is part of an effort to be a little more thorough on LivingNimbly… Also, I think that this would be good for me in general to get down a couple of pages down on what the business side of my life…
