At a recent speaking engagement, a young professional asked me a really great question. "What is the best way to develop a great working relationship with my boss?"

The quicker you figure that out the better off you'll be! When you're the boss, won't you want a team of people who make you look good? Always remember, when the boss looks good, you look good. So, what's the best way to develop a great working relationship with your boss?

Caught in the Act Speaking - 2010 National Conference for College Women Student Leaders

Brittany Williams from SUNY Fredonia was kind enough to post a short video of me leading my workshop "Success Starts With Self-Love" at the 2010 National Conference for College Women Student Leaders. Brittany caught me in the act with her cell phone (cool features that cell phones have today!). Click on the video below to watch.

Give Yourself the Gift of Happiness (or give it to the student in your life)

What students are saying:

Campus Calm University relates to me in so many ways from being uncertain about a college major, to being afraid of the word failure, to finding my passion, and so much more.
—Ashley, 19, Penn State University

Campus Calm University helps so many people: the perfectionist, GPA-stressed high school student; a broken-down, disillusioned college student who sees "Undecided Major" as a death sentence instead of a doorway to opportunities; or possibly an astray twentysomething who thought knowledge ended with the tossing of his graduation cap. Through Maria Pascucci's writings, one can find the true "secrets" to understanding how perfectionism, low self-esteem, and a loss of sleep and nutrition will affect ALL aspects of a person's life. Campus Calm University ultimately speaks that a healthy, happy life filled with love and gratitude is not the key to success, but success itself.
—Alex, 16, high school junior

5 out of 5 stars .. I just finished Maria's book, and it is excellent! Between her years of wisdom and interviews with experts, she shares great advice I wish I had heard when I first started Stanford University. Every student should read this book so they can balance striving for success with living a healthy lifestyle!
—Monte Malhotra, 2010 Graduate, Stanford University, author of The Young Investor's Guide to Retiring Young

Feature Article: Lessons on Marriage, Mistakes and Mowing the Lawn

By: Maria Pascucci, Founder & President, Campus Calm

Maria Lawn My husband Shaun and I will be celebrating our 8-year wedding anniversary this summer, and we have been dating for nearly fourteen years. So I can safely say that I know a thing or two about marriage and relationships in general. The key to a healthy marriage is sharing the household chores, and trying really, really hard not to keep score (the one who comes up short on the scoreboard, namely me, will also be the one to invent this rule).

Click here to read this feature article and learn how Maria's lessons in lawn care can help you become successful leaders both inside and outside of the classroom. Plus, you get to laugh at Maria...

Calming Down Changed My Life

My name is Maria Pascucci and I am the president and founder of Campus Calm. I am a leadership speaker, author and entrepreneur who discovered the joy of creating my own success when I stopped trying to prove to the world that I was the best.

A perfectionist and stressaholic throughout my high school and college years, I'd rather skip an assignment than risk turning in a less–than–perfect paper. After years of denying myself happiness in an effort to strive for perfection, I graduated with a 3.92 GPA and fell into depression. I never once congratulated myself for graduating from college because all I could think about was my next task: trying to prove myself in the real world!

Somewhere along the way in the past nine years since graduation, I ditched my need to be perfect and began focusing on what I wanted, not what my family and friends thought that I needed. Guess what? It was the most liberating thing I've ever done – and it paved the way for the success I enjoy today. My only regret is that I can't go back and help the stressed out student that I was once. But I can others.

Now I'm on a mission: to spread a dose of "campus calm" to stressed-out high school and college students world-wide so you don't have to suffer needlessly like I did.
