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… Lots of new things are coming this fall, like my new website, getting back to work on a new program for introverts, and participating in two projects (The Imperfect Boss Campaign and the One Woman Shop bundle…details to come soon!).
Reading… I started listening to the audio book The 10x Rule but had to ditch it. The author sounded too much like a pushy salesman and I just couldn’t deal. Do you ditch books early on if you’re just not connecting with the content? Now I’m listening to Originals: How Non-comformists Move the World and it’s a much better fit.
Watching… We finished the Netflix series Gypsy the other night and I’m still not sure what to think. Who else has seen it?
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!
