Working for Yourself is Not Freedom | Jon Westerberg
Sometimes full time blogging can seem like the ultimate dream – you’re living the laptop lifestyle, writing from anywhere in the world on your own terms. But it can be bloody hard work, and often not as cruisy as some may think. Still worth it though!
Nobody likes a poor open rate, so maybe these will help! Get ready for the WORLD’S BIGGEST POP-UP OPT-IN THOUGH. Wow.

Sometimes Making Progress Means Being Unproductive | Lifehacker
I love this so much. I am so guilty of putting off reading things that will help me learn because they get in the way of my to-do list, and I never have time. This article was great for reminding me that sometimes not being “busy” is still useful.
Computer Coding for the Future | The Saturday Paper
I wish every day I had more programming skills, and I’m excited to see coding in the national curriculum rolling out across Australian schools in the next two years – which means it will become a part of everyday life for my kids. I’m currently learning it… and it’s hard.
Sent to me by a friend, it sums up quite a bit of fear around change – changing your business, making a huge life decision – everything that feels weird but you don’t quite know what to substitute it with. I like how she’s sort of giving us permission to make decisions even if we don’t know what we’re choosing.
Have a great weekend!
