Careers Exposed: Medical Student -- Second Article In A Series

Awhile back, I published the first in a series of articles aimed at helping people identify the right career. Whether you're just out of school or considering a career change, you need to know more than a simple job description. I've interviewed people who walk the walk in a wide variety of professions.

The most recent article in the series gets up close and personal with Medical Student Lindsey Stannard. Lindsey worked in television for years until her recent shift into the world of Osteopathic Medicine.

Click here to read the article.

Watch my blog for more about Lindsey Stannard, who recently wrote a book due for release later this Spring/Summer (2010).

Happy Earth Day!

Every order $25 or more from now until midnight (Earth Day 2010) will be shipped with a re-usable shopping bag. These are excellent for carrying two regular grocery bags-worth of whatever you want! They're washable and durable, and sold in the original M Design Boutique for $8.50.

Offer good while supplies last, although there should be more than enough for all orders to ship with one.
