we all have that piece of advice that someone we respected gave us, something that stuck in our minds and something that we still follow to this day. some of them are tiny little tips that don’t seem like much but we remember them forever (whether they are fully true or not!) here’s some we’ve found helpful…(and a cute notebook above to write a few down) what helpful tips have you learned along the way?
• always send a thank you note within 5 days.
• never make a big decision late at night, sleep on it.
• don’t have dairy when you have a cold.
• always take a photo of your passport before you go on a trip, in case you lose it it’s easier to go through the process.
