Sunday Link Love is a series of helpful marketing and entrepreneur lifestyle resources from around the web, plus a few insights into my behind-the-scenes life.
On my mind… The past few weeks have been all about the ebb and flow of energy for me.
What I’m loving… The warmer weather! Even while living in Florida I was somehow vitamin D deficient, so you bet I’ve been enjoying soaking up the sun lately.
Reading… On Monday I started Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, by T. Colin Campbell (co-author of The China Study published a few years ago). I haven’t read a book about nutrition in awhile, so I’m enjoying the reminders. Just like The Sleep Revolution that I finished last week, I’ve read similar books before but need a reminder every so often.
Anticipating… Heading to Florida on the 28th for the first non-work or family related vacation I’ve had in a long time!
Learning… I had another inspiring session with my business coach this week. The biggest lesson from my session was around value messaging for my services. My clients pay me for my experience and results, not for my hours.
Now, on to this week’s round up!

My life lately according to Instagram…
《 s p a c e 》 When I give myself space and FULL permission to step away from work, the ideas flow so much easier. . . When I decide to work on a Saturday with no timer and no expectations, I do some of my best work. . . Where do you need space in your life? What decisions, projects, or ideas need some extra breathing room? Give yourself full permission (no guilt!) to disengage and you may be surprised what unfolds. 🌸
《online or offline?》I’ve been taking my business offline more lately. I set a goal at the beginning of the year to attend one in-person networking event per month, and so far I’m averaging two or three events or coffee dates! . . As an introvert it can be exhausting, but I also feel like I’m finally establishing some roots in an area. Pittsburgh has a lot to offer for female entrepreneurs, which is so, so refreshing. Plus, it's hard to beat the electric energy of meeting a like-minded entrepreneur in person. . . What percentage of your business/networking/marketing is online vs offline? I'm so curious! And has it changed since you started?
