Hello, Friday! Another busy week is done – did it go by extra fast or what? Between my college graduation (!), the usual to-do’s, beginning to prep for the Ohio Growth Summit, more than a couple of coffee runs and scrambling for a last-minute Mother’s Day present,  I am beat. If you’re in the same boat, take a break from the crazy and read through this week’s #THRIVEable Friday, our weekly list of favorite articles, tips and tricks to get you through your hectic schedule. Ten minute break – go!

Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS.

Be Brave.

Business owners need a sense of daring to step out on their own in the first place, but often relying on yourself to make all of the tough calls  leads to fear and stress. Move past your fear and read this post with great tips for boosting your courage, in and out of the business world.

Create Company Culture for Less.

For many employees, it’s just as critical to feel a connection to their workplace’s vision, goals and values as to the work they do. Many entrepreneurs may feel they don’t have the time or resources to create a positive company culture, but this article gives good pointers for building corporate culture on a budget.

Increase Creativity.

When you own your own business, you tend to wear a lot of different hats or roles that may be brand new to you. Without a specialized team backing you up, sometimes you have to get creative. These tips can help you increase your creative thinking and break through your problems.

Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life

We all know it’s important to stay informed, but with a busy schedule and an overabundance of web sites, social media channels, television programs and print publications, sometimes getting up to date on what’s going on in the world can be time-consuming. For me, this means that I tend to pass on watching the morning news to eat breakfast while I check my email. That’s why when I found The Skimm I jumped on right on the bandwagon. The Skimm is a daily roundup of the top headlines and news topics people are talking about, from politics to international affairs, delivered straight to your inbox every morning. It’s convenient, quick and informative – perfect for those on the go. What more could you ask for?
