Work Smarter

You know what they say: time is money. And here at NicoleLapin.com I'm all about saving you a little (or a lot!) of both. Getting ahead isn't just about going to networking events or asking for a raise (although those things are definitely important, too!). It's also about being your most organized, on-point self and laying an early foundation for success. So this week, I share four ways to be a productivity boss. From gadgets to block out the office noise to apps for organizing your expenses, these are my favorite pro tips to get the most out of your [...]

Be Y-O-U

This year has been one of many ups and downs for me (I know, I know, it's only March...but it's true!). I've made a lot of changes in my life, traveled a ton, taken on some new challenges (including shooting new episodes for my show, Hatched!) and released the paperback version of my first book, Rich Bitch (which came out on my birthday last week, eek!). But throughout it all, one thing has remained constant (and swearing like a sailor): ME. That's right. I've committed to spending more time on myself, whether that's taking on a new hobby like biking around Santa Monica (I [...]

March 7th – Happy Birthday to Me!

Yep, that's right, today is the day: my birthday! And at the fine young age of 32 (you're only as old as you feel, right??) I've learned a thing or two about the importance of continually growing, evolving, and becoming a more basass version of yourself year after year. That's why this week, I want us to celebrate my birthday together by investing in my favorite gift that keeps on giving: yourself! That's right, there are few things in life that will pay dividends down the road more than investing in yourself right now. So we're going to start by getting our resumes [...]

February 22nd — Protect Yourself

Research has shown that when we think about our future selves, our brains recognize that self as another person. Yep, our brains don’t think of the Future You as the same person as the Present You. We are detached from who we'll become down the road, and that can make us pretty lax about planning ahead for that Future Us to live in style. The thing is, there are a lot of things you can be doing right now to make life for Future You even more fabulous down the road. And that starts with caring for your money in the same way you care [...]

February 15th — Take good care!

We talked a lot last week about arranging our goals into the Three F's: Finance, Family, and Fun and we started by setting our sights on L-O-V-E. This week, we go a deeper dive into that last part: F-U-N. I'm all about building fun right into your budget so you can enjoy your hard earned cash, and no, I'm not going to tell you how to spend it. But I will help you to set fun goals for yourself—and then make sure you have enough money to achieve them! So, do you have #FunGoals? Check out what those are here [...]

February 8th — The Three F’s

It's the simplest question in the world but also the most difficult to answer: what do you want to do with your life? There was a time when I couldn't answer that question (and let's be honest, my response it still evolving day to day). You're not going to have all of the answers, but that doesn't mean can't get a little control by planning out your three F's: finance, family, and FUN. This week, we learn more about the Three F's and why they're so important for living the life you want. Then we'll talk about how you can use [...]

February 1st – Making New Friends! (and the Occasional Enemy…)

If you can't keep track of me lately, then you're not alone: I can't keep track of me lately. I've been criss-crossing the country for fun money segments on The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America while shooting my show Hatched on the CW. This means that I've been spending a lot of time in-studio and on-set...and you never know who you're going to run into! I recently had the delight to run into one of the OG Rich Bitches of the world: Kris Jenner. Eek! Say what you will about her, but she knows how to run a tight ship, both as [...]
