I'm a resource junky! Why redesign the wheel, you know? There is so much valuable (but FREE!) goodness out there for us ladies to get our hands on, minds around, and to apply to our businesses. Here are my top five favorites:
5. Thought Rocket e-newsletter
Thought Rocket was created by Will Marre, a motivational corporate speaker who loves to surf. Each newsletter delivers a wonderful tip (usually in a short video) about creating a better career, better relationships, and a happier life. Getting these little feel-good nuggets are a super way to kick-start some thought-provoking changes for the better, and they really put your head in a good space for creating and producing quality products and business.
Will is also a huge advocate for female empowerment in the workplace. He started the SMART Power Academy, to train women for leadership positions. I like to support men who like to support women!
