Okay, I admit it. Nail Art is just totally Cool. If you find yourselves in one of those situations when you have absolutely crap-all to do, attempting some nail art is probably a good idea. I do declare that there are a few rules however! 1) Nothing too fancy. Have You Caught the Entrepreneurial Bug? Maybe I’m speaking too generally here, but I feel pretty safe in saying that one of the most overarching and deep-seated desires among Gen Y-ers is a craving for freedom. We have access to more choices today than any generation before us about how to make money, who to build relationships with, and what to do with our time. And with so many opportunities, we know that there’s a career out there that will let us create a life that is 100 percent authentic — if only we could figure out what it is.
