Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.
From Freelancing to Full-Time Solopreneurship With Jessica Lawlor + Sara Frandina: I did my first Blab session this week! Sara Frandina and I chatted all about why (and how) we quit our jobs to start our own businesses. If you missed the livestream, no worries; you can watch the whole video at your leisure!
Self-Employment Update: The Good, The Bad and The Meh: Since I’m now on my own solopreneurship journey, I love reading about others carving out similar paths. Mary Catherine Starr is one of my favorite solopreneurs, so her self-employment update is a must-read.
On Feedback and Criticism:
My Thesis on How to Handle Feedback: I’m on a total Gary Vaynerchuk kick and these words couldn’t have come at a better time: “Bottom line (and it’s tough to hear): there’s always someone who won’t like you. But, at the end of the day, it’s not going to matter.” Good stuff hear on handling criticism (and letting it drive you!)
Buy Nothing Month: The Halfway Point: So fascinating. My friend Stephany is challenging herself to a “Buy Nothing” month. I don’t know if I could do it (so much discipline!) but I’m loving Stephany’s updates. She’s rocking it!
Three Myths to Dispel When It Comes To Starting a Podcast: I have a little secret…that I can’t share quite yet, but it’s the reason I’m sharing this super useful post from Stacey Harris for One Woman Shop about starting a podcast. This post from One Woman Shop interviewing several podcasters about how they got started is a gem, too!
This Week on JessicaLawlor.com:

- Get all client work finished by end of day Wednesday. One of my BFFs is getting married on FRIDAY and I’m in the wedding (congrats, Rachel!) so I’ll be a little busy Thursday with the rehearsal dinner and Friday with the wedding.
