“Oh how beautifully you are learning to live a little less afraid.” 🤗~Morgan Harper Nichols

I don’t always agree with everything that James Clear says. This is one of them. My gurl Shenee wrote an excellent response to that. But he does have some gems at times, and in his most recent newsletter, he shared this quote:
“Someone else living a good life does not prevent you from living a good life. There are many ways to win and plenty of space.”
And it struck me that that is the message that you hopefully get from me if you’re in my world. Businesses, side hustles, newsletters, and passion projects come in all shapes and sizes. 
There is a lot of pressure out there to entrepreneur a certain way. And if you take nothing else from me this year. Please understand that you get to define how you entrepreneur, whether on the side of a day job or full-time. Whether you spend 30 minutes a day on your business or 10 hours a week. Whether you do coaching, create products, sell stickers, or you’re a speaker. You get to choose. And you get to build that into your life.
By sharing my thinking and the behind-the-scenes of my life while I juggle everything, I hope that gives you the inspiration to start or keep going. 💖
I hope this newsletter and my offers are gentle nudges to build the best life you possibly can today because that is what I want for you. Now and as we get ready to welcome another new year.
As we all start winding down for the year and doing our versions of years in review, make sure to celebrate yourself. Celebrate those baby steps. Celebrate those moments of clarity. And celebrate those pauses.
This entrepreneur thing is not easy. But we do it because we want to make a difference. And the truth is, we all can. In whatever way works for us. 💪🏾
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the year. #jesspicks will be back in 2022.👋🏾

  • 📺. Watching: Stitchers. This is an old show for sure. But this woman Kirsten, who is unable to perceive time, happens to have the perfect skill to help this secret government organization. What the org does? It “stitches” into the memories of dead people to solve their murders. Dark? Yup, but I remember watching the first season a while back and never actually finished the series.
