Curated July 2015

Curated is a collection of all the interesting, inspiring and insightful articles I’ve come across during the month.

This month find out why giving up can be a good thing, find out why lavender oil isn’t just for nannas and learn why ditching one word can make a big difference to your mindset.

So find your favourite spot to get comfy, settle in and enjoy!

This shiny gem from By Regina should probably have an edition of CURATED all to itself! It’s a blogger’s/entrepreneur’s dream guide to creating a simple, easy to follow plan to rock your business. Regina has filled this incredible post with loads of useful info, questions to guide you and worksheets you can fill out which together = making life easier for solopreneurs. She’s even got a section that covers what you can do when you don’t know what to do! If you’re a blogger or biz chick and you read one article from CURATED this month – make it this one.
