First things first: I am a personal development junkie. I EAT self-development books and spend a lot of time looking up inspirational videos and blogs. Of all the blogs on my queue, the following 10 have been most helpful for getting me out of my own head and into action. I hope that at least one of these blogs gives you power and fuel when you most need it.
1.HappyBlackWoman-Rosetta Thurman is my mentor, Spirit Guide, and the blogger I would most like to sip bourbon and shoot the shit with. (Open invitation: Rosetta, what’s good?) This woman left a safe, steady 9-5 to build an empire that supports women in their transition to a location-independent lifestyle. She is kicking ass and taking names, and she refuses to apologize for it! Plus, she rocks a full and fluffy fro (#teamnatural) that gives me LIFE! Yaaaaas, queen! Slay on!
2.Tara Sophia Mohr-Tara Mohr, author of Playing Big, is an expert on women’s leadership. Her blog (and the book) have helped me to get clear on how to support my clients in unhooking from other people’s expectations so they can live a life that feels good.
