#jesspicks - Issue #8
By Jessica L. Williams • Issue #8 • View online
This week has been fun.  The work week was short but super productive and I went to a few events.  I realized that I am clearly a fan of photo booth situations with props.  So must find more of those opportunities! :)   
All kidding aside, it made me realize that I need to find more fun in my everyday life and invest in myself.  That includes my health too!  I am giving this 4-minute workout app a try - you do about 8 activities for 20 seconds each with 10-second breaks in between (spoiler alert: there are burpees).  I’m doing it as soon as I wake up in the morning followed by lemon water.  I feel that I can commit to those two things fairly easy. Baby steps right?
As I think through my professional development and things, especially updating my LinkedIn profile (see #ontheblog below), I’m really trying to figure out my JVP (Jess Value Proposition).  I have my job where I help women tech startups, which focuses on women side hustlers, and then I have this other identity where I’m a Cisco-certified network ninja person - who can speak to being a woman in the tech field.  I sometimes feel like three different people based on that, so I’m thinking through some theme or umbrella that everything falls under.  Because I really want to be able to answer the questions of, “What value does Jessica provide to the world - no matter what hat she’s wearing?”  There’s a common theme of helping women in all of those roles, but what do I really do and how do I help them?  Something I’ll be noodling on for sure as I think through my personal brand.
On to the picks for the week!

“Don’t waste your time and energy fighting against where you are.  Invest your time and energy into getting to where you want to go.  And even if you have a good reason to be upset and resentful, let it go.  Channel your energy into thoughts and actions that actually benefit your life right now.”
