Start Your Week Right Sunday: Links and Goals

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 PR:

My Life During The 2012 Philadelphia Marathon: My good friend and fellow PR professional Lauren Cox outlines her crazy, past few weeks working as a marketing coordinator for the Philadelphia Marathon. As someone who ran the half during marathon weekend, I can attest to how awesome Lauren and her entire team are!

Night With The Pros: Planning My First Event: My sister and fabulous up-and-coming PR pro Jamie Lawlor shares five lessons learned planning her first event for a PR organization she’s a part of.

On Careers:

5 Ways to Get Your Life Back From Your Job: Let’s face it. Many of Type A folks pour our heart and souls into our work. Amanda Abella, blogger at Grad Meets World highlights 5 ways to achieve better work/life balance.

Three Steps for New Pros: Newly graduated and still adjusting to the first few months of your first post-college job? My friend Niki Ianni guest posts and shares three lessons learned in the first six months of her dream PR job on one of my mentors, Jason Mollica’s blog.

On Social Media:

The Science of Instagram: How to Get More Followers and Likes: Really interesting read. I disagree slightly with Neil Patel’s Instagram approach because I don’t think it’s very genuine, but he clearly has done something right and provides some fascinating statistics and tips for using Instagram here.

On Life:

Looking at Smartphones and Tablets in Bed Hurts Your Sleep Patterns: Totally GUILTY! The last thing I do before closing my eyes at night is one last check of all my social media sites and a few games of Scramble With Friends…according to this article, my routine is hurting my sleep patterns. Oops.

Goals

  • Get through my personal email inbox. I took a little hiatus over the holidays and let the emails build up. Time to get back on track.
  • Christmas. Shopping. Need to get started. This will likely be a recurring goal until it’s all done!
  • Enjoy my well-deserved massage I booked for myself this week as a reward for completing the Philadelphia Half Marathon.
