Web Time Wasters

How was your week, friends? I lead a workshop for high schoolers about safe/cheap international travel – so fun! I wish someone had talked to me about this stuff when I was 17. (P.S. If you’d like me to lead a workshop for your company, school, group – drop me a line at sarah@yesandyes.org. I’d love to chat!)

Then Kenny, Loretta, and I had a nice weekend away in Crosby at this super cute, dog-friendly Airbnb. Highly recommended! (If you’ve never used Airbnb before, here’s a $40 credit towards your first booking.) Also, if you find yourself in Crosby be sure to eat at Iron Range Eatery. Truly one of the best meals I’ve had all year! Yes, in a town of 2,300.

And a reminder: the live version of Make It Stick Habit School starts tomorrow! Nora McInerny says:

“I loved Habit School. 1, because it helped me realize why all my other good habits have slid right off me. And 2, because it actually. Made. Good. Habits. STICK! I’m not kidding you. It just worked, and it made me feel amazing. I’ve been able to replicate that same success over and over, with little habits that I was so discouraged about not being able to accomplish before. It is a whole new way of looking at how you behave, and it has really and truly helped me make steps towards being the Nora I want to be.”

Twin Cities friends! Have you heard of Fix It Clinics? They’re free clinics that you can bring your small appliances that need repairs. You’ll be paired with an expert who will show you how to fix your item. Again – it’s free! It’ll save you money and keep things out of the landfill!

Have you ever heard of ‘rose reflexing‘? Apparently it’s *the* trick to making supermarket roses look really lush.

Controversial opinion: I’m never going to Tulum again. Who Killed Tulum?
But seaweed was only one of Tulum’s problems, and before the dark wave distracted him, Barbachano had been detailing a list of other plagues: failing infrastructure, overzealous developers, drugs, too many DJs. In a white linen shirt, a Panama hat, and rose-tinted sunglasses, Barbachano looked the part of the fashionable type who had made Tulum one of the world’s hottest destinations. He gawked at a brunette walking by in a red bikini. “Look at this woman! I mean, I’m gay, but she looks like Kate Middleton,” Barbachano said. “You want that, with the beautiful ocean behind, chill music that’s not fucking pounding in your head. But not everybody gets it. They have a few million dollars and say, ‘We’re gonna buy a place in Tulum, get 16 speakers, put a DJ on, and fck this all up.’ ”

I am EXTREMELY co-signed on this: Why You Shouldn’t Start A Business

It absolutely does not matter what type of business you start. In fact you should not start an actual business at all—nonprofit or otherwise. Here’s what you should do instead.

Just start doing the thing that you want the business to do.

Go out into the world, test and validate the ideas you have before ever creating a logo, opening a bank account, registering an LLC, or anything else.

Sure, there will likely be some amount of financial investment to bring something big together—but not on any of the above.

Also co-signed.

Hope you had a lovely week – and I hope to see you inside Make It Stick Habit School tomorrow!
