Self-Care for the Solopreneur (Or Anyone For That Matter)

Self-care, people. It doesn’t sound like a very sexy topic, but it’s an incredibly important one. Often times, when we’re so busy, taking care of ourselves becomes our last priority. Who has time for a hot bath or a cup of tea when there’s so much work to be done, deadlines to meet, dishes to […]
