"Your obligation is to make the highest contribution that you can make to society.” ~Greg Mckeown

You ever feel like sometimes the Universe is trying to tell you something? Well for me this week, it was all about a book that I had been meaning to read. I saw 3 different people talk about it in 2 days and it’s like “OK Universe, I see what you are doing here.”
I started reading Essentialism and I am doing so much highlighting. Here are a few of my favorite quotes so far (in addition to the one above):
“What do I feel deeply inspired by?” and “What am I particularly talented at?” and “What meets a significant need in the world?”
Sleep will enhance your ability to explore, make connections, and do less but better throughout your waking hours.
If it isn’t a clear yes, then it’s a clear no.
I think this book is showing up in my life right now especially because I am juggling contracts with 4 clients in addition to managing my business - which is really starting to get some traction. 🥳 Which is all great but it’s forcing me to take a hard look at things because of the overwhelm I’m starting to feel. And how saying yes to the right things needs to be more of a priority.
In other news, I spent some time this week creating slides for my upcoming session at the Monetise, Monetise, Monetise Summit in September! It’s a 5 day FREE summit with 15 speakers all sharing actionable advice and tips on monetizing your blog. 💰 I’ll be chatting about how to get started with affiliate marketing. And if you’re not familiar with affiliate marketing, it’s a way to earn money by promoting other people’s products, services and tools. It’s an income stream that can be added to any business.
Also had some great conversations this week that will lead to some more cool stuff happening in September and October so stay tuned on that. 🎉
On to the picks!
P.S. I hope you have a wonderful long weekend! xoxo
