taphunter-san-diego-office-headquarters

It is only fitting that TapHunter, one of San Diego’s most notable tech companies, has one of the coolest offices in the mecca for live-work-play, Downtown San Diego. TapHunter’s office is a modern, lofty, bright and creative collaboration hub for the company’s growing team of craft beer and coding enthusiasts. In the words of their leaders, “Our team is part hardworking beer connoisseurs, part innovative technologists and hard-core hunters that support local businesses and don’t settle for supporting common denominators and crappy ingredients.” Does it get much better than that?

Spaces We Love: Quicken Loans

When most people think of Quicken Loans, they think finance, mortgages, and credit scores. And if they tried to picture what Quicken Loans’ office space should look like, they probably think of traditional private offices, dropped ceilings, and building standard carpet.

Family Feud No More

Making Your Family Business Into a Competitive Advantage

I was a pretty good girl from the start. I got straight A’s in school. I went to bed early. I never went to a party or had a sip of alcohol. I refused to wear make-up until I was sixteen. My best friends were and still are my family, and there was no one else I would have rather spent time with growing up (that hasn’t changed either!)

It’s hard to believe that the holiday season is just around the corner! Sometimes it can be hard to get into the festive spirit during what many working professionals find to be their busiest time of year.

I like to be reminded of just how special this time of year is, even when I’m at work, and fortunately my employer agrees! Here is every company’s guide to holiday décor in the workplace.

Holidays-on-a-Budget

The holidays are already just around the corner: parties, gift exchanges, and dinners with friends you’ve been meaning to see all year mark your calendar, making for a busy — and fulfilling — time!  But it can wreak havoc on your finances if you’re on a budget (or like me, in the throes of a home remodel!).  However, regardless of how lean your disposable income may be during this time of year, you can still have a great time – so here’s how to survive the coming holiday weeks, without breaking the bank.

Spaces We Love: Onefootball’s Berlin HQ

It’s not every day that you see an AstroTurf track lining the halls of an office, but that’s the first thing you’ll notice when visiting Onefootball’s new headquarters in Berlin. (That’s football in the European sense – otherwise known as soccer to those of us in the U.S.) Given that Onefootball is “the best mobile football platform for fans around the world,” it’s only fitting that their space reflects the enthusiasm of the sporting world, in conjunction with clean lines and modern finishes fitting for a tech company.

Gluten Free in the Workplace

With the amazing (and recent) advancements in the food industry, eating gluten-free is becoming more and more manageable for the everyday working woman.  That’s not to say it’s without challenges, particularly in the workplace, where a full kitchen is not always accessible or sanitary for those with celiac or severe gluten-intolerance.

Gluten-Free, Office-Friendly Morning Snacks

Fresh Fruit Bowl

The night before work, cut and wash your favorite fruits.  In the morning, toss them in some Tupperware and store them in a freezer-safe lunchbox.  It’s a perfect morning snack that is healthy, yummy, and most importantly, gluten-free!  If you don’t have time to cut and wash, try leaving some fruits (that do not require refrigeration) in a bowl at work, pre-washed, for you to reach for any time.  My favorites are apples, bananas, pears, peaches, plums, oranges, and nectarines.

KIND Bars

KIND bars are a delicious treat for anyone who is gluten-free.  They come in many different flavors and are an easy, on-the-go option for the busy working woman!

Perfect Bars

One of my new favorite gluten-free breakfast options is Perfect Bar.  Non-GMO, organic, gluten-free, and delicious, Perfect Bars are the newest, yummiest food trends for those on the go.  Try the peanut butter flavor – it almost tastes like dessert!   Note: These bars DO need to be refrigerated (to protect the all-natural ingredients), so be sure to keep them in a chilled lunch box or have a refrigerator available to you at the office!

Snacks for the Office

Corn Chips

One of my go-to snacks at the office is all-natural corn chips.  It’s a great snack when you are craving salt and need something yummy and crunchy to munch on.

Pre-Packaged Apple Sauce Cups

When you are craving something sweet, this is a great, easy snack choice that doesn’t require refrigeration.

Popcorn

If you have a microwave available to you, fresh-popped popcorn is one of the best work day snacks I can think of!  Healthy (within reason), delicious, and easy to make, popcorn is one of my go-to’s.  If you don’t have a microwave handy, there are some great pre-popped options such as Boom Chicka Pop that will do the trick.

Lunch

Grilled Chicken and Vegetables

Grilled chicken and veggies are a great make-ahead, healthy lunch option that only requires a quick re-heat in the microwave!  It’s a balanced meal, and the protein will give you the energy you need to power through the rest of the work day after lunch.  No mid-afternoon snacks here!

Tuna Salad

Of course, tuna salad needs to be refrigerated once made – but canned tuna can be a great option for the workplace to get some protein with little advance work.  Add it to some leafy greens and you’ve got yourself a very balanced meal and yummy treat!

Berry Salad

My favorite salad consists of spinach, walnuts, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and light vinaigrette.  To avoid sogginess, keep all parts separate until you are ready to eat.

If you do have to eat out for lunch (with a client or a colleague at work), try to pick the restaurant in advance.  Come up with a list of restaurants nearby your office that has gluten-free options, and make sure to keep to that list when you eat out!

Enjoy!
