Hola, Friday! It’s been too long.
How was your week? The end of the month is always a busy time – between monthly reports, meetings and our normal day-to-day tasks, we’ve had to hustle to check everything off our to-do list and, frankly, it’s time for a margarita. But before we sign off for the weekend we’re delivering our weekly #THRIVEable Friday post with our favorite links, apps and advice to help you out when Monday rolls around.
Here’s some of the stuff we heart this week – enjoy!
Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS.
Handle a Business Blunder With Grace.
Whether you’re a newbie to the startup game or a seasoned entrepreneur, sooner or later you’re bound to make a mistake. What’s important is your ability to learn from these blunders and bounce back. This post gives good advice to brands and businesses on how to handle mistakes and avoid them in the future.
Old Dogs, New Tricks.
Waiting for the new year to make a change with your business or personal life? That’s not how we roll. Why wait when you can switch things up now? Get a jump on building a new habit with these tips from Entrepreneur – you’ll thank us come January.
Entrepreneurs are the face of their business and are expected to speak in front of groups or to potential clients, investors or brand advocates. Leading a presentation or speaking at an event can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. Need some help to help with your prep? This helpful post tells you what NOT to do.
Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
Working in silence can be uncomfortable, but music can be too distracting and disrupt your productivity. So how can you get some background noise that doesn’t break your concentration? Our new favorite solution is Coffitivity, a website and app that delivers the sounds of your favorite coffee shop (minus the talkative teenagers or business meetings) to your ears without having to leave your desk. Large caramel macchiato not included.
