Lisa’s Tips for Survival in the Professional World and Adulting:

  1. “Nurture your network, and make sure that you’re really paying attention to people that you’re getting to know – not only in college but also in your work life.”
  2. “Balancing family, friends, your health and work is hard to do, but it is always a good idea to have some kind of balance in your life.”
  3. “Save your money along the way. Save, and invest wisely in things that you know. Even a little bit counts.”
