There are a few books and podcasts that have seriously changed my life this year. Seriously! If you’re a blogger, entrepreneur, or go-getter, you defs need to read these!
I have severe insomnia and have struggled with sleep for as long as I can remember. This book talks about the history of sleep, sleeping medication, and why we all so desperately need to give our bodies time to rest. Sleep is SO important and it just can’t be pushed aside, I no longer glorify those who work all hours of the night to get things done. It’s changed the way I look at being “busy” and has made me realize the importance of a work/home/life balance.
So I’m only about 1/3 of the way through, but I’m obsessed! If you’re a blogger, work in social media, or want to get involved in the online space… Pick up a copy NOW. Gary gives such great insight on social media and how we can use it to our advantage. Each page gets me more and more excited to take my social media game to the next level.
I am obsessed with Lauryn Evarts Bosstick, this girl is no joke! Her podcast always has a ton of killer blogging tips, beauty secrets, and general life hacks. Her husband Michael is the co-host and has lots of great business advice and is just freaking hilarious tbh. The two of them are so honest, authentic, and the chemistry they have together melts my heart. After an episode, I’m left feeling motivated, inspired, and ready to kick some ass.
Most of the podcasts geared towards education/learning are so dry and painful to listen to. Brain Candy is SO far from that. I always end up learning so much and come away with all of these fun facts, but still laugh my face off the entire time. These two gals always encourage women to “Stop Being Polite.” What they mean is that if you’re placed in a situation where you feel uncomfortable… Speak up! There is absolutely no reason for women to endure harassment or to stay quiet in any situation where it’s clear they aren’t being treated as equals. I absolutely love this initiative and couldn’t agree more. Also, Susie and Sarah have the best Instagram captions on the freaking planet. Just saying.
