On Your Reading List

Girl Wash Your Face

This month’s inspiring read by Rachel Hollis exposes the twenty lies and misconceptions that can hold us back from living joyfully and productively and reveals specific practical strategies to help you move past them.

Using the same candid honesty and raw humour as her website TheChicSite.comGirl, Wash Your Face shows you how to live with passion and hustle and how to give yourself grace without giving up. The book is encouraging, entertaining, and convincing. You will leave it feeling motivated to embrace your life with new passion.

The Hustle

 There is no shortage of content available in your email and in your feed, but The Hustle is worth a subscribe. I was skeptical when I first signed up, but since then have been pleasantly surprised by their refreshing and informative business content.

I skip the odd post, but when I do click, I end up reading about something useful for my business or at the very least, interesting to bring up at my next networking coffee.

DYK: Did you know some luxury brands destroy their unsold inventory so it doesn’t end up discounted and hurting their brand?

On Your Mind
“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”
― Lauren DeStefano
In Your Toolbox
With the holiday season upon us, there are countless opportunities to be of service. The act of volunteering will help those less fortunate and make our communities a better place. And increase your network with all the people you help and meet!
