Welcome to my new online home. (I built it myself!)
I wanted to recommit to my goal to write more about the incredible insights, learnings, and questions coming out of She's the First and the non-profit entrepreneurship sector, from my point of view. I've transferred over some of my favorite entries from my old site, but I'm mostly starting fresh as I gear up for 2016 (and a new decade - my 30s!).
I'm reading Better Than Before: Mastering the Habits of Our Everyday Lives by Gretchen Rubin now, and the new good habit I want to work on is reflection. We are always working at warp speed and my personal writing seems to fall to the bottom of the to-do list when there's a pressing deadline or a pipeline of donors to follow up with. Social media, in its immediacy and bite-sized sharing, creates good habits of staying informed and visible, but bad habits of not taking time to process, create conscious improvement, or even plan long term.
Besides that personal benefit, I'm also hoping that this blog and my newsletter might work as a means of "scaling up" my mentorship abilities. As She's the First grows, I'm unable to take as many individual coffee dates with entrepreneurs and students as I used to, and giving advice is still something I love to do. I'm hoping that I can still manage to help you in this way.
My plan is to blog 2-3 times a month, and then at the end of it, deliver a newsletter to my subscribers, summing up what the theme of the month was for me.
Would you like to be part of this habit-forming mentorship experience with me? Then please subscribe! And please let me know in the comments below if I can reciprocate and be part of your list serv.
