Some Jewels to Jumpstart the New Year.

As I laid in bed recouping from what feels like the deadliest cold ever, aches and pains through every bone and sinus in my body, I realized that this time spent laying down is the perfect time to indulge in some podcast listening and magazine reading. I would like to share two of my favorite things that I listened to/read while in bed and I am hoping that it will help jumpstart those New Year goals. You can’t just talk the talk, you have to walk the walk.

I highly recommend listening to: 

1) Myleik’s Podcast on Podomatic. Google Podomatic and sign up to listen to her podcast. It’s free!

MYLEIK!! You may know her, you may not. She is the CEO (Chief Experience Officer) of an amazing beauty box called Curlbox. She is beyond dynamic and I love her ability to share her goals, fears, and drive toward success with her customers to anyone willing to listen. I appreciate the openness because not everyone is very open about success and struggles. She is chock full of knowledge and her podcasts are a great way to get your thinking back on track.

I Highly Recommend Reading:

1) The read up in most recent issue of Fast Company Magazine on “Secrets of the Most Productive People” is an easy read and once again there are no magic solutions, just comparisons of highly effective people and it is your task to incorporate the jewels you learn. Just do it like Nike says. Also, take the time to read a provocative piece written interview style on “Silicon Valley’s Race Problem”. We know there aren’t many Black People in high profile tech jobs and this interview with some brilliant Black Techies shed some light on an issue that I am not very versed in. Gotta get my 10-year old coding.

The fantastic December/January 2015 issue of Fast Company Mag.
