start your week right- Jessica Lawlor

Photo of the week: An absolutely stunning view of my city’s skyline from The Mann Center, where I saw Gavin DeGraw perform last week. Gorgeous Philadelphia!

Start your week right! Every Sunday I post my favorite links from around the web and share my goals for the upcoming week.

Links

On Content:

How The Hell Buffer Creates So Much Content So Quickly: Do you read the Buffer blog? I’m fascinated by the amount of amazing content the team there puts out so I was especially interested in this post by Buffer Content Crafter Kevan Lee.

On Freelancing:

11 Ways To Boost Your Confidence On The Phone To Potential Clients: If you dread talking on the phone to potential clients, this piece by Karen Marston for the How To Be Freelance Blogger blog is super useful. I especially like her thoughts on the dreaded moment of silence.

Get Published On High Traffic Sites: 5 Steps To Using Help A Reporter Out (HARO): I use awesome tool Help A Reporter Out (HARO) all the time at work, but Cat Alford’s guest post for Careful Cents got me thinking about how I can use it for my Get Gutsy blog/brand.

On Online Dating:

Don’t Know What To Write In Your Online Dating Profile? Try This: Writing an online dating profile can be super challenging (believe me, I know). Alexandra Frazen offers up a series of fill-in-the-blank sentences to help bring your profile to life. PS- I think these tips could also apply to creating an amazing About Page for your website.

On Goals:

5 Signs You’re Ready To Turn Your Goals Into a Reality: Have big goals? These five signs from Ashley at Your Super Awesome Life will let you know if you’re ready to tackle them.

On Public Relations:

Three Simple Ways to Take PR 101 To The Next Level: I recently jumped at the opportunity to write a guest post for my very favorite PR blog- Spin Sucks. I tackled the topic of taking those generic PR 101 type tips I hear regurgitated over and over again at PR conferences to the next level to make an even bigger media splash.

This Week on JessicaLawlor.com:

The Simple Email Strategy I’ve Implemented For One Week With Major Results: Trying to grow your email list? Here’s the simple email marketing strategy I’ve implemented for just one week with major results.

Goals

  • Run three times this week. I’m “training” (I use that term very loosely) for the Philly 10K in September and need to get my stamina for running back up.
  • Begin planning for a BIG project I plan to launch this October- stay tuned!

    I like the way Buffer takes a topic and puts their own spin on it; they’re adding to the conversation on that topic.

      Same! I seriously love their blog…they broke their blog into 2 (or 3?) and one of the blogs- it’s called the Open Blog focuses on their company culture, which I love reading about!
