Empire State of Grind: Your Career and NYC

Countless people have moved to New York City with the mantra, “If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere,” playing on a loop in their heads. For many people, it’s just where you go when you have a lot of ambition. But while it’s home for tons of happy residents, it’s also a city of extremes. It’s easy to get caught up in the feeling that you must always be striving for more, and that can lead to burnout in a hurry. Here’s how to respond if your efforts to build up a career in NYC are starting to bring you down.

Moving and Improving

I am about to finish college this semester and I received a job offer in New York City, where I do have some family. I have a six-year-old kid who loves it here in South Carolina. We bond with sports and we are very close. However, he’s been acting out, because he is not a fan of moving to a new place and making new friends. To make matters worse, his birthday is coming up soon. I am trying to convince him that the move is for the best. I wanted to surprise him with a birthday party ready to go as soon as we drive up to our new home. Any ideas on how I can hire a moving company that would take care of the move so that I could focus on the birthday party?
