Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.
On Work/Life Balance:
Work, Sleep, Family, Fitness, or Friends: Pick 3: Can you really have it all? Maybe, but definitely not at the same time. Jessica Stillman explains. This is a great reminder to me as I start my own business; sometimes you have to focus a little more on one area of your life and return to the other areas later.
On Launching a Biz:
How Much Freelance Work Are You Ready to Take On?: Jaime Hanson details a few things to keep in mind when deciding how much freelance work you can take on when you work as a solopreneur or side hustler on the Don’t Panic Management blog.
On Social Media:
Does Social Media Cloud Our Memories?: “I wonder now how much we stop a real life experience to document it, before really looking at it with our eyes first,” Emma Gannon ponders. I am definitely guilty- what about you?
On Public Relations:
Secrets of Power Pitching: My two friends Jason Mollica and Ben Butler (two SUPER smart communications pros, I might add) recently launched a course around doing media relations right. If you’ve ever wanted to learn about PR and pitching, these are the guys to learn it from.
How I Got My First Job at Disney: Ever wondered how to get a job at a major company like Disney? My friend Gabby explains exactly how she did it- I find her story fascinating! Persistence, people.
This Week on JessicaLawlor.com:
Monthly Check-In: Goodbye January, Hello February: Each monthly check-in, I share three things I accomplished in the previous month and preview three things I’m excited for in the month ahead.
- Tackle week 2 of solopreneurship! My main goals are to start to develop a schedule and begin to get organized. I felt a little lost this first week, so I’d like to bring some structure back into my life.
- Prioritize working out and practicing yoga. Naturally, my first week was crazy and I skipped a few workouts and canceled a few yoga classes- however, I KNOW these things help keep me sane, so I need to keep them in my schedule.
