It’s Friday (finally)! Happy hour, anyone?
Have you got a case of the post-holiday work blues? I definitely needed a kick to get going this week after the Fourth of July, but then it seemed like the rest of the week flew by. On to the weekend!
But before we put our laptops away (like that ever happens!) here’s this week’s #THRIVEable Friday, a weekly roundup of our favorite apps, reads and hacks to help make next Monday a little easier. Cheers!
Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS.
Is your company growing the way it should? It’s easy for entrepreneurs to get caught up in the numbers game and focus on growth and revenue while letting things like quality of service or company culture slide.

Managing as an Extrovert vs Introvert
A popular way to classify people is by how extroverted or introverted they are.

Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life
Editor’s Note: Kate used unroll.me this week and is totally in love with it. The result? 125 unsubscribes and 67 subscriptions added to her rollup. Presto, change-o, magic!
You’ve found an awesome new blogger or website and followed them on social media and subscribed to their email updates or e-newsletter. In theory, it’s convenient to get that author or expert’s newest post delivered straight to your inbox, but if your email is anything like mine, it’s already overflowing and can’t take much more. Instead of deleting or archiving all of these emails into oblivion, wouldn’t it be nice to put them all in one place?
Unroll.me takes care of that — like magic! The tool shows you all of the subscriptions you’ve signed up for (even the ones you may have forgotten about) and helps you easily unsubscribe from them. Then, when you’ve got your list narrowed down, you can get all of your remaining newsletters sent in one convenient email each day called a “Rollup”, which saves you precious inbox space and frazzled nerves.
