Do you know what today is? It’s my blogiversary!! techbizgurl.com turns 7 today. 🙌🏾🎊 It’s hard to believe how much my life has changed since becoming a blogger and side hustler. I wouldn’t trade it for anything because a lot of what I’ve done with my blog has helped me so much in my day job life.
Speaking of day jobs, I started my new job this week. And in a word: overwhelm. 😳. I forgot how much information comes at you as a new employee and it can be really intimidating. I had a “OMG what was I thinking changing jobs?!” moment. But thanks to my friend Shenee we chalked it up to fear and resistance. Change is never easy but oftentimes it’s necessary. And in my heart I know that I made the right decision to take this role. So my plan is to lean into the discomfort and do my absolute best. And keep self-care top of mind. 💆🏾
Also this week, I did my Side Hustle workshop in Phoenix. IT WAS SO AWESOME. 30 women attended and a few even emailed me afterwards. 🤩 I realized that I really love talking about this topic. It flows so well. And as a reward to myself, I booked a day trip and spent about 14 hours with 9 other travelers stopping in different parts of Arizona. Seeing the Grand Canyon especially is truly a life-changing experience.
Later today I head back to Chicago, relaxed and in such a feel-good place.
On to the picks for the week!
