Sunday Link Love is a recurring series of hand-picked digital marketing and entrepreneur lifestyle links from around the web. The links are very, very rarely affiliate links, but if any are, you’ll see an * beside the link. Along with sharing my recent favorites, it’s also a way for me to keep an extra-personal touch to my blog. Social media is great, but my blog is still my home base!
Anticipating… I’ve spent the past two days moving my SEO for Solopreneurs ecourse to the Teachable platform. I’m loving the features so far and excited to start offering an affiliate program for the course! More details coming soon.
Loving… Cooler weather and a few sunny days in Pittsburgh this week. Working outside and even having a client meeting outside were highlights of my week.
Got to work with some cool dudes yesterday at @biddlesescape. • Oh, not these guys. I meant @porterlovescreative and @angelicarosspgh. For once it was a real, in-person meeting. 90% of my meetings are online, so it’s refreshing to meet face-to-face when I can! • Plus, an outside meeting at my favorite coffee shop in 70° weather? I’ll take it!
Reading… I’ve been listening to the audio book The 5 Second Rule by Mel Robbins while running the past few weeks. It’s a super simple idea but has already made an impact on motivating me to do things I don’t want to do (like running).
Watching… Since I’ve had a lot of late nights working on tedious projects (like moving my course to a new platform) I’ve zoomed through a bunch of Netflix series the past week.
Any recommendations for shows that are good to have on for some background entertainment while doing tasks like that?
Now on to this week’s round up!
