Join Kennesaw State's E.C. Angels For An Evening Filled With Opportunity, Creativity And Vulnerability

Most people believe that in order to be an entrepreneur, you must have a full-fledged plan put together, complete with your entire business model. You know, pie charts and all of that nonsense. Let me just say that none of us start out that way.

You’ve got to start somewhere, and for the E.C. Angels, a group of like-minded, entrepreneurial women on Kennesaw State University’s campus, it all began with a networking dinner this past fall. It led to a series of monthly meetings where we found ourselves creating intentional circles and having meaningful conversations, a lot of the times crying in the process.

I was fortunate enough to be a part of this incredible group, and I was further reminded of how far we had come at our last meeting this past Saturday. Not just as a group, but as individuals. We were past the whole “How do I find the confidence in myself to do this?” and moved on to “So how do you plan on getting five more clients for your business?” The types of questions we were asking each other were completely different; the perfect representation of how the entrepreneurial mindset has truly changed our lives.

Now I know you are wondering where Odyssey fits into all of this. As a content creator, you are given complete freedom in choosing what YOU want to write about. When you go through your college classes, you are told exactly what you must write. This is very similar to being an entrepreneur because you are choosing your path instead of listening to all of the people in your life who are telling you to follow in their footsteps.

Writing Odyssey articles enables you to create opportunity for yourself. You never know who is going to see your writing, and while this may seem scary at first, it can sometimes be the difference between you landing your dream job instead of settling for mediocrity.

I cannot even begin to describe the opportunity that Odyssey has brought into my life. Ever since becoming Editor in Chief last year, to now serving as President on Odyssey’s leadership council, I have learned so much not only about myself, but about my creators. Managing a team of 30+ girls is not easy, but my God, is it worth it.

If you’re ready to share your story, whatever it may be, we would love to hear it. I am happy to announce that Kennesaw State’s Odyssey team will be partnering with E.C. Angels this Tuesday, March 27th, to bring you an evening filled with vulnerability and absolute honesty.

Stop by and fill out a Post-It note as part of our interactive “Who Am I” mural. All majors are welcome!

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Memorial Day 2018 occurs on Monday, May 28. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy
Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.
