Jenny Blake's book "Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want" (an absolute bargain at Amazon US and Amazon UK) launches today. It's the perfect book for you if you're leaving college soon, or if you've already left and you feel that life could be that bit better. In other words, it's the book we all need! It's bursting with crowd-sourced wisdom for all areas of your life: work, money, friends & family, dating & relationships, health, fun & relaxation, personal growth, and more. And it's got exercises so you're not just reading, you're doing.
To celebrate, Tagbento is giving away a free copy - see the end of the interview for details.
Who are you?
I'm a blogger, author, life coach, yoga teacher, gadget-freak, cupcake-lover and Googler. I've been blogging for over three years at LifeAfterCollege.org, and I'm thrilled to share that I have a book coming out on March 29: Life After College: The Complete Guide to Getting What You Want. I've also worked at Google for over five years, where I am currently a Career Development Program Manager and internal coach. I also work very closely with the Authors@Google program.
What’s your favourite thing on your desk?
This is a picture of my desk at Google – at home I mostly work on the couch :)
My favorite things on my desk are my flair magnets – a mix of magnets from different countries, some cupcake magnets, some inspirational quotes, and some just random things that add color to my desk. I also love the Corporate Bullshit calendar and the Corporate Flashcards – those crack me up! I think it's important to laugh at work and keep a sense of humor.
What would make your space even better?
Hmmmm... other than a corner office with a 360 degree window view? Kidding. I love my office! The BEST days at my desk are the ones when my cubemate Dana brings her Bulldogs to work. They come and sit by my feet under my desk and it just makes my day!
Any words of wisdom for our readers?
Zen desk, zen mind! Make your desk a reflection of you – fun, inspiring, motivating, and hopefully relatively clutter-free.
