THE JOURNAL ARTICLES


WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK

  • We challenged a group of entrepreneurs to write down their wildest dreams and we were wowed at their responses:  Learn more  here 

  • We were reminded that consistency still goes a long way: We started our weekly newsletter 6 weeks ago and started posting on social media 4 months ago and it has been paying dividends. Because we have consistently been staying on top of mind, 8 prospective clients reached out to us last week, we have been getting shares and engagement on social, and organizations such as the NYC department of health and Forbes Books are interested in collaborating with us. Consistency leads to results.


TOOLS AND BOOKS WE DISCOVERED

  • Link Tree: The program, Link Tree, allows you to have more than one link in your Instagram bio. Check it out. Thank you, Mike Ducil from the one percent mindset for this one.  

  • What are some tools and books that you are using that we should know about?
