READ, FOLLOW, LISTEN
I'm always suuuuper excited when I discover a new inspiring book or start following an awesome Instagram account or listen to an entertaining podcast so I thought why not share some of my current favorites with you all.
Finding inspiring people to learn from is a huge benefit from this social media, easy access to information life we're living and I want to learn from as many wise, creative people as I possible can. Here's what I'm loving (or have in cue) for business focus and home/design inspiration.
READ = Boss UP! This Ain't Your Mama's Business Book by Lindsay Teague Moreno
Only a chapter into this book and I'm loving it! Perfect for any mom chasing a business. Within just a few pages, she shares her understanding of the dreaded mom-guilt and the feeling of wanting more than just motherhood. For a fellow dream-chaser, she spoke right to my heart and I cannot wait to devour the rest of this book.
FOLLOW = Jenna Kutcher, @JennaKutcher
If you don't know Jenna Kutcher, you may have been living under a rock. This photographer turned multi-millionaire marketing guru is so very generous with her followers and, bonus, has gorgeous photos.
LISTEN = Goal Digger (with Jenna Kutcher)
Yep, Jenna again. She's just that good guys. Through just listening to her podcast, Goal Digger, you can learn so many incredibly valuable business building tips. Although a large part of her following is women starting and leading businesses, she has plenty to teach the men as well. All around a rockstar podcast for anyone hustling to grow their business or dreaming of getting started.
READ = Small Space Style: Because You Don't Need to Live Large to Live Beautifully by Whitney Leigh Morris
With more than 200 tips on how to make the most of your home, this book's real show stopping inspiration lies in the fact that it's author is capable of making you want to downsize to a 400 square foot home. (Yep, they live in 400 square feet and it's nothing, but gorgeous.)
*Other design books I love or have on my list: STYLED by Emily Henderson (great account to follow on Instagram as well), Living with Pattern at Home by Rebecca Atwood, Cozy Minimalist Home by Myquillyn Smith.
FOLLOW = Amy Stone Fine Art, @AmyHStone
I just found this Birmingham artist on Instagram this past week, but I just can't get enough. She caught my eye with a morning sketch and then I fell in love with all of her beautiful abstracts and flash paintings. She's a mom too which I always love to support.
*Other artists to follow on Insta (all Nashville based): Margaret L Brown, @mlbrownstudio, Levi Watson, @leviwatson, and Hannah Lane, @hannahlanepaintings
LISTEN = YoungHouseLove Has a Podcast
If you have any interest in home decor, you know these guys. They're an awesomely fun couple with killer design talents who share their do's and don't's of renovating and designing on their Instagram, website, and (my favorite) their podcast. If you need some DIY home inspiration, this is it, guys.
Who are you loving on Instagram? Is there a Podcast I should start right now? Loving a new book or have an old one that you go back to again and again? Let me know!
OK, off to tackle this Monday.
