This week's gold is a hand-picked (by me!) round-up of the week's great stuff from around the Internet. Every Saturday. Every thing relevant to creating your all-around healthy business and life. Follow the blog via Feedly to ensure you don't miss a week of gold.
This week's gold:
- Something I obviously extol in business is originality and creativity. Avoiding Death By Cookie Cutter by Lisa D. Jenkins illuminates how our success isn't dependent on copying other successful business models and gives a few practical tips to find what works best for your unique business.
- The first day of work for a new hire can be so pivotal to their impression of the business. It was for me at least. I love the practical tips that Andre Lavoie gives in 7 Ways to Make the First Day Perfect for New Hires. (Also, how close the woman's hair is to the beignets in the picture is killing me! Can someone make her tray lighter so she doesn't have to hold it so close to her body?)
- As we roll into the next year, is there anything you've thought about changing in your life? Maybe a work addiction? In Addicted to Work? Here's How to Break Free, John Brandon is an understanding voice, providing help for you to prioritize people and your health over work.
- Crystal Paine writes a beautiful story in “Do for one what you wish you could do for all.” It reminded me of how vital it is to care for others (over money, over my work).
- Baron Batch. So much good could be said. For now, it's incredible and beautiful that I identify with him more than I do with seemingly similar female peers. He just gets it. His Art is Not Dead (Dairy 1) is filled with discernment, truth, beauty and wisdom.
