#THRIVEable Friday: Email Management, Mentors + The Pomodoro Technique

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but we are definitely starting to go a little stir crazy as winter continues! (Why, oh why, did that groundhog have to see his shadow??) At least there are fun social media debacles like the dress and the llama escape to keep us distracted as we eagerly wait for spring. So, today, we hope to warm your hearts and kick your productivity into high gear as we head into the weekend. Maybe, just maybe, Mother Nature will follow suit and give us some pleasant weather as we head into March! Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS. Get Off

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but we are definitely starting to go a little stir crazy as winter continues! (Why, oh why, did that groundhog have to see his shadow??) At least there are fun social media debacles like the dress and the llama escape to keep us distracted as we eagerly wait for spring.

So, today, we hope to warm your hearts and kick your productivity into high gear as we head into the weekend. Maybe, just maybe, Mother Nature will follow suit and give us some pleasant weather as we head into March!

Entrepreneurship…LIKE A BOSS.

Get Off Email! 

Did you know that they typical tech CEO spends 1400 hours on email every year? That’s almost two months! John Meyers at Entrepreneur offers tips to busy CEOs and office workers on how they should manage their time and stay off email to produce their most productive selves.

Finding a Mentor.

You’ve heard it before. Everyone needs a mentor, especially in PR the tips they offer can be invaluable! But do you need more than one? Fast Company suggested this week that you might need not only one – but five mentors to help you realize your full potential and keep you on track.

Tips and Tools to Empower Your Life

Big jobs can seem daunting, especially big boring jobs. You know they need to get done, but maybe just a few more minutes on Twitter? Distractions are a thing of the past with The Pomorado Technique. This nifty little app is designed to get you to stay focused for 25 minute increments…that’s not so bad! After each increment, you get the option of taking a 5 minute break to check your Instagram feed or continue on for a 10 minute break (Starbucks anyone?). There … don’t you feel accomplished now?
