This week, we have lots of pragmatic advice for you on how to be a happier, more productive person.
Because you’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and gosh darn it, this joke has now been permanently rendered un-funny.
On Monday, Morgan Dix (he happens to be one of our Certified Content Marketers) revealed what meditation can do for your creativity and focus. I’ve been a meditator for many years, and I really enjoyed this post — I think you will, too.
On Tuesday, our VP of Operations, Kim Clark, shared some of her favorite tips for getting more out of working from home. Because some days are great … and some days you really wish you had found those 10 minutes to take a shower.
On Wednesday, I wrote about confidence and the ongoing work of reinventing ourselves. The key to gaining more confidence isn’t some kind of self-help affirmation — it’s something much more fundamental. It all comes down to Moscow, Napoleon Dynamite, and disturbances in the Force — and a fairly simple mindset shift that could actually change your life.
And if you’ve had starting a membership site or online course as one of your goals, you might want to check out our newest StudioPress premium theme for WordPress — AcademyPro.
AcademyPro is designed specifically for education sites, and offers great-looking styles for your lesson plans, course topics, and educational goals. The StudioPress team has optimized the theme to provide a great user experience for both your learners and your potential customers.
Over on Copyblogger FM, I suggested some things you can think about now to create a fantastic 2018. No goal-setting or annoying homework, just some creative noodling you can do to start to move in productive new directions.
And on Unemployable, Brian Clark talked with the bootstrap founder of FreshBooks about a topic dear to my heart — how to charge what you’re really worth.
Enjoy the content, and we’ll catch you next week!
