It's been a minute! How are you doing? How's your June been? Do you have anything fun coming up? Have you been drinking enough water?
Okay, that last one is more of a reminder because everyone I know — especially myself — is chronically dehydrated, so go take a sip right now!
The last I left you, I was moving into a new house. The move went great and we've been slowly making this new space a home... and then I spent a week in New York (to welcome the newest members of our family: our new twin nieces!)
Life has a way of happening whether we're ready for it or not.
Sometimes things need to drop for the moment. Sometimes you can't juggle all the balls in the air.
But this is just another season of life and you're allowed to return to where you left off.
You're allowed to let things drop.
You're allowed to be human.
I know, it’s a wild concept, but you are allowed to give yourself grace.
with warmth + love,

Things I’ve been loving that have absolutely nothing to do with marketing or business
Fast Company: 4 useful strategies to resist the siren song of multitasking – This article is a little old, but it's also SCREAMING at me so... ignore my multiple tabs + tasks open.
The Riveter: What Do We Owe Our Jobs? – Again, another older article when the conversation was Naomi Osaka + job requirements, BUT I think it's a valuable read about the boundaries we should all be placing on our careers.
The New Yorker: We All Have "Main-Character Energy" Now – I'm still a little hesitant about the world opening back up, but I am deeply enjoying seeing more adventures + living it up – just like this piece focuses on.
Digiday: Gen Z and millennial employees embrace the concept of 'Polywork' – Otherwise known as, having multiple jobs at once. I never knew there was a term for this, but I definitely find myself wanting to do more than just my day job (when I'm not knee-deep in moving boxes).
💭 Content Calendar
Ideas for you to take into your week ahead as a content creator
Remember why they hired you.
Remember why you're qualified to do the thing you're doing right now.
Use your gut. Trust your gut. It's there for a reason
Don't be afraid of being decisive and voicing your opinion.
Sure, sometimes there will be voices louder than yours. But don't count yourself out before you've even been given a chance.
You know what you're doing. Don't be afraid to do it.
