When you want to begin a new project or acquire new responsibilities, how do you prepare to pitch your ideas to your boss?
Begin with an intelligence assessment of your office. Every work culture is different. There are the deciders, the influencers, the executors, the worker bees, and the fly traps, where any idea, good or bad, gets zapped. How are ideas implemented on your team? Who are the people who get things done? Who stymies new ideas? Whose counsel does your boss seek before they greenlight a project? Before you take your idea to the big boss, shop it around the office, avoiding the fly traps. Take it to the people in your office who push projects through and make things happen. Have them share challenges they think you might face. Polish your idea and take it to the person whose opinion matters most to your boss. How would they sharpen the pitch? By building consensus, refining your idea based on team input, you are making sure key people have a stake in the idea's success. This builds capital around the office and by the time you pitch the project to your boss, your grass roots campaign may have already done its work, making the bosses decision a foregone conclusion.

In my current position, I have shifts that change everyday (i.e. 7-4,8-5,9-6,&10-7). I find it so difficult to find W-L balance. Advice? :)
Hi Sarah, I love this question and I'm curious about what your job is! To answer your question: I have a good friend named Clare who's a restaurant server and sommelier so her schedule changes daily, depending on whether she's working the lunch or dinner shift and whether it's a weekday or weekend. I've known Clare since college and she's always worked hard and played hard, so a work-life balance has always been abstract for her. Because Clare's not able to divide her attention and energy neatly down the middle, she makes sure that she has at least one consistent thing to look forward to. For her, that's spin class. I think when your schedule is all over the place, it helps to have fun, non work-related activities to anticipate. Exercise, squeezing time in for a hobby or making sure that you meet up with a friend outside of work helps maintain a sense of regularity when things are in flux. Try not to beat yourself up when you're not able to devote equal time to work and life; one or the other will always take up more of your attention on any given week. It helps to recognize that life can get crazy and that 'this too shall pass.' I think making small adjustments goes a long way in maintaining balance.

I teach tennis as a second job on the weekends. It's easy gas money for my full-time job during the week. My second job teaching tennis isn't "work"...I enjoy is so much...it's a break from the full-time job and the extra money is great!

I'm not shy, by any means, but I find industry networking events here are very cliquey. Any tips on how network in this situation?
Terrific question. My recommendation is always to attend networking events purposefully. Understand why you're attending (meet new people, industry contacts etc.) and to set realistic goals for the event (meet 2 new people, further relationship with X). Underlying both of these recommendations is research and pre-event preparation. You may uncover from your research that you know someone in the clique who can make introductions at the event. Or you may determine that the networking events are really "insider" gatherings so another strategy is needed to maximize your time other than simply showing up at the event. Final suggestion, organized networking events always need volunteers. Best way to get to know people - help out at an event (especially at the check or name card table).

What is the best advice you can give someone who is hoping to break into digital editorial?
Jenn - The best advice I can give is to write...a lot! If you haven't already, start a blog on Wordpress or Tumblr and be really strategic about how you market the blog from a social media standpoint (e.g., when do you use Pinterest vs. Twitter). I would also encourage you to consider starting out as administrative assistant supporting an editor. While this doesn't get you into Edit right away, it allows you to build relationships and prove that you can be a valuable part of the team. Another option (given how competitive it can be to break into Digital Edit) is to start out by assisting a freelancer and getting your feet wet. This shows that you are flexible and committed to learning.

What advice, in regards to funding, would you give to those who are building a start-up with limited funds & not ready for an investor?
Funds are not the only currency you have to exchange in building your startup. You have equity which you can give to trusted advisors or potential 'first' hires. Also look to programs such as Startup America where entrepreneurs gain access to deals/discounts on services you are likely paying for now. I also suspect you have expertise which you can exchange for the services and expertise you need.

Hi Emily- I am currently a senior and I am interested in pursuing a job in communications. Any post-grad advice would be great! Thanks!
Hi Amanda - a senior in college? Then I'd strongly suggest getting out there and lining up a couple internships at a couple of firms you might be interested in working at post-graduation. Depending on the type of firm you want to work for, I'd say lining up one for your last semester (for school credit, if necessary), and one more paying one this summer would be the way to go. You can learn, test your interests and make valuable connections.
