Has this week been weird?  Maybe just me? I’ve felt off all week. Not sure if it’s because I’m trying to work and side hustle and move and prepare for a trip next week (oh my!) but I’ve been feeling very overwhelmed.
I had a conversation with my mom and sister about feeling stretched thin and they both said, “Let us help us help you.” Which got me thinking, it’s SO HARD to ask for help.  But why?  Because I’m independent and used to handling everything including this.  My mom said, “Yeah and you can handle it all.  You just have a lot going on right now.”  She is so right of course. Mothers know best.   Knowing I have people in my corner definitely made me feel better.  💪🏾
In other news, I wrote my first sponsored post article through this service called Valued Voice.  It matches influencers with opportunities to work with brands. See it in the picks below. This was a great experience and I like the idea of doing more of these as a way to generate income for my brand. 
I’m traveling next week! I’m going to Mississippi to be the keynote speaker (!!) for the first Women in Science and Engineering Symposium for the University of Southern Mississippi.  They are being so awesome and accommodating which is great. I’m so looking forward to it.
How about you? What’s going on in your world? How can I help you?
On to the picks for the week.
