FROM THE FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST

Share the goods

Hello, Hello August!

July has been a game changer month for me. I started a brand new business “Bridesmaid for Hire” and spent all of my free time learning contractual law and the benefits behind creating an LLC – business things I never knew about before.

I could use quite the tropical vacation.

But instead, like most of you, the only vacation i’ll be taking anytime soon is a night watching the Kardashians frolic around Thailand – trying to imagine myself lounging by the water with my girl Khloe.

To keep you pumped up and going this summer – here’s a list of 7 really fun articles and things to check out on the internet. Enjoy!

1. I’m bringing the Fanny Pack back.

That’s my new personal goal. It’s summertime and instead of lugging around a giant purse with you in the sticky heat – why not strap a pack around your waist and just carry the essentials. I picked one up on Amazon the other day for $4 bucks!

2. We have no time to think anymore!

This week, one of my readers sent this NY Times article to me with this note.

“We continually make ourselves overwhelmingly busy from work to social events and when we have five minutes to just be inside our own heads, we can’t handle it.  Instead of facing the problems that life hands us, we pick up our phones and look at the snapshots of good that people post on facebook/twitter.  Those people’s lives probably aren’t all that rosey! So, I hope you’re able to take a few minutes to get lost in your thoughts and come out of it refreshed and productive.”

3. Did you know that most of your favorite books…

Here’s my new post of the week!

I’m Jen Glantz. I’ve been a published writer for over 13 years, spilling my words into magazines (ranging from style to scuba diving), newspapers, websites and even this one time, a speech, for someone who didn’t speak a word of English. What drives my words, my site, my writing, is the power of relating to people. I find that many people, especially young girls, feel so alone and quite often they feel embarrassed. I want to shatter those feelings! I want them to read what I write and understand that it’s okay to be a little outside of the box, but most importantly, that it is okay to just be who they are.
