We’ve been through countless issues and why each candidate is the best to handle each specific one. We’ve told by the infamous “single-issue voters” that we have a moral imperative to vote for Donald Trump based on his stance on abortion, or to vote for Joe Biden based on his plan for climate change.

I have to admit that I too am one of those single-issue voters. But not for one of the issues that gets loads of media attention or is discussed at a presidential debate; which seems strange when we’re talking about choosing the person commonly referred to…

One of the best things we can do to protect the unborn is preserve the planet they’re being born into.

Last week, California announced one of the boldest pro-life regulations in history.

If you’re part of the Pro-Life movement, that may be a sentence you never expected to hear in a state where liberals run rampant and morals are nonexistent.

But it’s true. Governor Gavin Newsom announced that he was banning the manufacturing and sale of new gas-powered cars by the year 2035.

No I didn’t speak at the DNC, but if I had this is what I would have said

I don’t know if 22 is old enough to call yourself a lifelong Republican, but I think it is fair to say that there are probably few kids as infatuated with a political party at such a young age as I was. My first exposure to politics was in 2004 when I was just six years old. My dad took me to go see President Bush speak at a rally near my hometown of Canton, Ohio. …

Getting a job and moving to a new city after college is one of the major milestones of entering into adulthood. Like getting your driver’s license, leaving for college, and getting your first legal drink at the bar, starting a career and going off on your own is the final rite of passage to becoming an adult.

If you’re like me, you’ve been looking forward to it for a long time — really dreaming of the day when you had a place of your own, full-time work, and a steady stream of income. …

Young People Aren’t Hearing the Message and Not Listening — They Aren’t Hearing the Message at All

Sometimes I think I’m the only 22-year-old taking Coronavirus seriously. Actually, I think that all of the time. I watch in horror as my friends post snapchat stories from bars or vacation in Florida while I am barely leaving my house and certainly not without one of my four masks and hand sanitizer ready to go. I attribute some of this COVID fear to growing up with a mother with severe germaphobia, but am still in disbelief on how many people my age…

Read Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska)’s now famous quasi-parenting book, The Vanishing American Adult and you might not emerge too optimistic about the future of our society when you finish. The book paints America’s emerging adults as lazy, entitled, arrogant, looking to escape responsibility, and lacking critical thinking ability. Sasse doesn’t lay the blame on children themselves, rather he chastises today’s parents, pop culture, and even our education system for creating a society of what he calls “perpetual adolescence.” …

It may not look pretty, but it has the potential for great success.

2020 was supposed to be Gen Z’s big year. After long awaiting their turn, the newest generation was set to enter the workforce at one of the best times in history. A booming job market, stocks soaring, more growth on the horizon all looked promising for soon to be college graduates. Then a pandemic hit months before the Class of 2020, the first graduating class comprised fully of Gen Zers, finished school and entered the workforce. …

If you’re like thousands of other recent college graduates working at some of the biggest companies and firms in the world, chances are you have a few months before you start work. While most large organizations have been adamant on upholding their offers to recent grads, many have resorted to pushing back their start dates by months, to even as late as January. If you’re one of those graduates whose start date was pushed — you certainly have the right to be frustrated. You were eager to enter a booming…

COVID-19 is undoubtedly the worst public health crisis of our lifetimes. Millions have been infected, over 600,000 have died, and we continue to learn more about the disease’s harmful effects by the day. The impacts on public health will be permanent, and the worldwide public will have a new view of health and sanitation practices.

But the pandemic is already making us healthier. How so? The shift to our homes has restricted us from our gyms and restaurants but has changed our daily habits — perhaps for the better. Americans are taking more walks outside, eating more home-cooking meals, and…

Lessons on Moving on From an Organization You Built

A lot is made of the triumphs and tribulations of building an organization. Every entrepreneur chases the feeling of pride, success, and accomplishment that comes with realizing organizational success. The glamorized feeling of creating a great company is what fuels our entrepreneurial spirits. Yet what is seldom talked about are the challenges that come after you’ve built your organization and achieved success; when you leave the organization you started.

This is something I’ve experienced first-hand over the past several months as I prepare to graduate college and leave a college organization…
