When I am having complete writer’s block, I usually scroll through my favorite blogs for inspiration. There are thousands of blogs out there on the interweb so it can be tough to find one that you can relate to. Here is my list of the best blogs to read as a twenty something woman:
I am a book fanatic. I’ve never understood the appeal of Kindle because there really is nothing like the smell and feel of a new book in your hands. With that being said, I have become somewhat of a book hoarder. I have this lifelong dream of owning a huge library one day where I can sneak off to and write all day long. For this reason, I have been on a hunt to find the best books for women entrepreneurs so that I can fill my dream library with valuable content.
This year, I started a virtual book club to keep myself and my fellow women entrepreneurs on track. I think it’s so important to read every day in order to get those creative juices flowing, no matter what field of work you are in. For those who have not joined our Facebook book club, I have compiled a list of awesome books for women entrepreneurs:
Up until July 27th, I thought I was a kickass networker. Because I can talk to a brick wall, I thought I had all the tools I needed to make connections and get ahead in business. Ummmmmmm, that’s a joke.
After my second trip to the CreativeLive studio in San Francisco, I was (once again) blown away by the amount of knowledge I was given. My networking game was WAY off and I had no idea. Jordan Harbinger, AJ Harbinger, and Johnny Dzubak were the teachers of our class, The Art of Networking. They are the masterminds behind the Art of Charm and have an amazing podcast that you should check out right this second.
Last week, I ran into a friend that brought up my writing… in a negative way. We had fallen out of touch and when the subject came to up in conversation, she explained that she didn’t even know me anymore. She went on to claim that nothing I have been writing sounds like it came from me and that she has discussed it with my friends behind my back.
As you can imagine, I was a little speechless… I mean, I knew that there would be gossip floating around once I began this journey but hearing it from one of my “best friends” really cut me to the core.
High school can be a real bitch. Even though there are hundreds of people around you, you’ve never felt so alone. Everything matters. The length of your skirt, what kind of shoes you’re wearing, how you walk, talk, and laugh. It’s insane. One wrong move and you’re as good as dead.
Watching 13 Reasons Why brought back some scary memories. Guys that were a year older than me telling me to kill myself on Facebook, crying in my Spanish teacher’s classroom before school, telling my therapist I couldn’t live like this anymore… I look back on my younger self and my heart sinks. What if I was pushed to the edge? What would’ve been the “last straw”?
