August 22, 2019

Sometimes, the combination of work responsibilities and the demands of friends and family can put you in a rut, too stressed out and overwhelmed to make progress on any of your goals, and definitely too distracted to be a joy to spend time with. But stress isn’t necessary and there are simple, actionable strategies that can reduce stress and put you one step closer to improved work-life synergy, something we value at Siegfried.

I own about 17 blank notebooks. I see them at stores and feel the urge to buy them, acting like I’ll fill them up, but I never have.

A college major is never quite a guarantee of career path. In her first year at Baldwin Wallace University, Katie Bader quickly switched her major from education to accounting, but today, she finds herself drawn toward teaching and mentoring young accountants at Siegfried with a smile on her face.

6 podcasts to start your summer

6 podcasts to start your summer

June 27, 2019

Podcasts are a great way to absorb information and new ideas when you have a little downtime or find yourself multi-tasking. If you’re on the road (or in the air), getting ready for bed, or drinking coffee, a good podcast is something you can use to fill the quiet. They can make you a more compelling person, help you through a tough situation, or just teach you something you didn’t know!

Bring on the spring! Music to inspire a fresh start.

Bring on the spring! Music to inspire a fresh start.

April 25, 2019

It’s not uncommon to do a deep clean of our homes this time of year. Many of us feel the urge to spring clean — opening windows, bringing in the fresh air, and getting rid of that pile of clothes accumulating in the corner of the closet. But just as we spring clean our homes, it never hurts to spring clean our minds.

Welcome to New York

Welcome to New York

James Potter loves New York City — I think it’s because brunch lasts most of the day or it’s where Lin-Manuel Miranda created “Hamilton.” But he tells me that’s not it. “There’s nowhere in the world like New York to test yourself,” he says.

We’re in an age where becoming professionals who practice contemplation is more important than ever. In the midst of all the activity and craziness around us, we have to learn to become more thoughtful and reflective about our thinking and feelings to lead more meaningful lives.

Why I chose to work smarter, not harder

Why I chose to work smarter, not harder

February 21, 2019

For most of my life, I have been the type of person who makes lists. I used to write things on my to-do list that I had already done, just so I’d have something to cross off. It feels good to put that line through an item, to know that you’ve accomplished something. But when I got a new job, this wasn’t the way the office worked.

A marathon takes months of planning, preparation, and anticipation. After more than a year of training and waiting, I ran the NYC Marathon on November 4. But, just a few hours after finishing, I found myself dealing with an unforeseen and upsetting reality.

Vision board do's and don't's

Every January, we get a fresh start, so to speak. A clean slate. A blank piece of paper. But what are you going to do with that blank piece of paper? If you’re already thought about your resolutions and goals, why not take it one step further and create a vision board?
