How was your week, guys? I took myself on my monthly writing retreat and introduced a friend-of-a-friend to some of the glories of Minneapolis. This weekend, Kenny and the boys are away and I am glooooooorying in having the house to myself!

Links for you

Sometimes I feel like I’m not a ‘good entrepreneur’ because I always have (and always will) prioritize my Actual Life over my business. But Susan gets it.
Yes, absolutely, sit at your computer and write, coach, email clients, do your work, whatever your work may be. Work diligently for, say, 4-6 hours. If you focus intently, you can accomplish a lot in 4-6 hours. And then stop. Enough. Take a walk. Make a smoothie. Watch an episode of Outlander. Watch two. Drive across town to that museum you’ve always wanted to visit. Pack yourself a picnic basket and eat outside on a blanket under a tree. Remember what “outside” feels like? Remember trees? It’s nice out there. 

Have heard of Brandless? Everything is $3 and much of it is organic, non-GMO, or vegan! I’m intrigued!

If you’re in the Twin Cities and you’re affected by DACA, you should know about Navigate MN and the Volunteer Lawyers Network.

Does September make you want to hunker down and “get serious” about, well, everything? Did you know that I put together a secret library of ebooks and workbooks that will help you plan better trips, manage your money better, make more friends as an adult, etc etc etc? And it’s $0? Access it here.

A cookbook I’m excited about.

Fun fact! There was time in American history – not that long ago! – when the rich said no to getting richer.
Romney didn’t try to make every dollar he could, or anywhere close to it. The same was true among many of his corporate peers. In the early 1960s, the typical chief executive at a large American company made only 20 times as much as the average worker, rather than the current 271-to-1 ratio. Today, some C.E.O.s make $2 million in a single month.

What if we could solve our relationship problems by getting more sleep?

An etiquette guide to receiving nudes without being an asshole about it.

I think this is true! We’d all be better communicators if we weren’t so afraid of embarrassing ourselves.

Hope you guys had a lovely weekend!

A song apparently 37 million people have heard that I’ve never heard before?

Welp, this week was terrifying, wasn’t it? On Tuesday I returned from a week in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, realizing my lifelong Anne of Green Gables dreams (you can see photos here), but none of that really matters when our president is a bigot and a racist.

So before we dig into links-as-usual, I wanted to share these two posts:

1. White feelings 0-60 for Charlottesville
2. 8 ways to help after Charlottesville

A few things from my lovely sponsors

Oooooh, a good reminder/check-in from Loha: Are you living your life on purpose or by default? And could you do a 21-day forgiveness challenge?

If you ever think unkind thoughts about yourself (re: are alive) you should read this post from Corinne. Also: don’t quit. Rest.
