Happy Valentine’s Day! We kicked off the love-fest yesterday with a video post about tips to make your clients love you, and today we’re back with our weekly #THRIVEable Friday roundup filled with links, tools and resources we love.
Entrepreneurship … Like a BOSS.
When you’re launching a startup, sometimes you’re so in love with your idea or product that you don’t see the drawbacks or obstacles that could prevent its success. This article on Three Ways Passion Can Kill Your Startup cautions entrepreneurs about some of the most common blind spots and offers suggestions for how to minimize them through careful market research and cost analysis.
Tips on how to increase productivity pop up just about every day around the web. But you’ve probably never heard these three unusual (but useful) suggestions on How To Be Way More Productive from Tim Ferriss, author of The Four-Hour Workweek. He says these hacks will give you more energy, help you read faster, and keep your inbox cleaner – so we figure they’re worth a shot.
Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life …
If you publish content to your blog daily, write a lot of content in advance, or have multiple contributing authors, it can be a challenge to keep track of your posting schedule. The WordPress Editorial Calendar is a simple plugin that allows you to manage your blog calendar from right within WordPress. The calendar gives you a quick snapshot of when your posts are scheduled, and you can edit and publish posts from right in the calendar. Want to move a post to a different date? Just drag and drop. Easy, convenient, and a big time-saver.
