In our hurried culture of distractions and to-do’s, it’s hard to slow down and focus on what’s important. 🌟 That’s why we want to help. We’d like to help you do less, buy less, cook less, work less, decorate less, and stress less this season. How? 🤔
Van Edwards' talk was about telling the truth. Or, in other words, dispelling “The Swan Effect.” What’s the Swan Effect? It refers to the idea that, on the surface, you see a beautiful swan gliding peacefully across the water, but – just under the surface, ugly feet are paddling like crazy. Because that’s how successful people (or at least the inspiring, relatable successful people) become successful. Their journey has some ugly bits and a whole lot of work goes into propelling them from Point A to B.
I ended up at WDS thanks to Live Your Legend (a movement similar to TheMillionTo1Club) that I follow on FB. Live Your Legend said write a FB post. I did. I won a ticket. We had two weeks to figure out how to get to Portland, so Jeff travel-hacked his heart out with scary cheap plane tickets, two Airbnbs, and a $40 yellow Fiat. The rest is history.
For those who don’t know, I recently quit my full-time job to build my writing career, as well as expand my goal-getting network, TheMillionTo1Club.

1. Stop Multitasking (Seriously. Stop it.) When we multitask, what we’re really doing is “task-switching,” according to psychologist Guy Winch, PhD and author. When it comes to a human’s capacity to pay attention, we are either narrowing our attention to focus on details, such as when we study for an exam, or we are skimming the pages to search for key points at the expense of missing those important details.
Sometimes you just lose your mojo. You get tired, frustrated, grumpy, sad, overwhelmed, or you're just done. It sucks, but don’t sweat it because it happens to everyone, and you can fix it.
First, you have to figure out what you’re missing. A lack of inspiration is probably the result of:
1. Not enough rest 2. Not enough play 3. Not enough support 4. Not enough vision
I have a party trick that I carry in my purse or my pocket, and no matter where I am, it gets a reaction from people every time.
It’s 2016, I’m 27, and I have a flip phone.
Those reactions vary. Most people are incredulous. “How do you manage?” they ask, as if living without a smart phone is a hardship I bear.
During my undergrad, I was able to teach a course called: Academic and Career Planning. I helped students decide on a major and explore career options. I also taught a course called University Experience. University Experience is a source for students to plan study strategies and how to navigate the college experience. Now I get to teach MillionTo1!

We’ve all seen headlines like these—
They bombard our Pinterest and Facebook feeds endlessly. And if you’re like me, struggling to fit into last year’s jeans despite making regular trips to the gym, you can’t help but click on them.
When many people sit down to watch a movie on Valentine’s Day, they are only thinking of their significant other and the buttery popcorn in front of them. This was not the case for Carmen Schober, a Kansas State graduate, just over one year ago. She said the only thought that was running through her mind was how she could achieve her goals and help others do the same.
At the time, Schober was an expository writing teacher at K-State and a mentor with K-State First. Although she had a passion for teaching, she said she felt as if she wanted more.
In a household of two health-conscious full-time professionals (yep, serious adulting over here), figuring out what to eat for breakfast and lunch can be a pain. You know why. Think about it. Fancy Pinterest recipes meet grocery store shopping meet actual cooking meet washing dishes meet repeat every day for the rest of your life.
