This time we’re living in right now is exhausting, and I’m baffled by all of the extra zeal towards getting more done, and being extra productive, and “making the most” of our quarantine time. I don’t think this is the time to make the most of it. Sure, if you have the energy and the drive to make things, do it. If you’re struggling and scrambling to put things together and pay bills and keep your jobs, I completely understand. But that’s not what I’m hearing from people. People feel vulnerable, they’re struggling to focus, they’re zombied out on their phones, they’re completely overwhelmed by childcare and jobs.
Last year I read 43 books, the majority of them by women. Overall, this year was a year filled with GOOD BOOKS. Here are my ten favorites from my reading stack of 2019, from parenting books to business books to memoirs.
Every year, B-School opens once for enrollment, and once it’s closed—it’s closed up. It won’t be back until 2020. Today’s the last day to sign up for B-School. Enrollment closes tonight at 4PM Pacific / 7PM Eastern.
I know it can feel like the whole internet is abuzz about B-School right now, and sometimes we do things that aren’t actually a good fit for our needs right now. As always, I want to encourage you to make the best choice for you and what YOU need right now. Don’t feel pressure to do B-School if it’s not the right time or fit for you. It took me four years to sign up—only you can know when it’s the right time. Here’s what I’d think through if I were on the fence.
So yesterday was a DAY. You might know these days. I hadn’t showered in a couple of days, and, well, I’ll just say that I definitely needed a shower. I’d woken up at 4:55am to finish editing a podcast that was overdue, and at 6:16am the boys woke up. I grabbed coffee, shuffled them to breakfast and toys, and then… A strange gurgling sound started emanating from the bathroom. Ew, um—what? Our bathtub started filling up like a spooky gross horror movie. Not with clean water, either. Dark, dank, muddy water. Well, this wouldn’t bode well.
It took me a really long time to sign up for B-School. At first, it made sense: I was super broke, had $100k in student loan debt, and I was trying to learn everything I could while doing it on the cheap. But after a while, I ended up making a bunch of mistakes that cost me a TON. Here are the mistakes I made, and why I would do it differently if I were to go back and do it again.
Marie Forleo’s B-School program is back, and I’m thrilled to be offering a bonus again this year. But if you’ve never heard of B-School or you’re just joining the party, then read this first. I’ll give you a big overview of what B-School is, the core modules, the bonuses, who it’s right for, and when you should take it.
Why do people email when they are on the toilet, and does it matter for your marketing? It does, and here’s why it’s so important.
