I can't believe this month is almost over. Where did the time go? I didn't even register this month being June until recently. The other day my husband was talking to me about needing to renew my church recommend.
I said, "It doesn't expire until June."
Which of course he replied with, "Marilyn, it is June."
It is so easy to get caught up in what is going on around us that we lose track of time and sight of what is important. How I wish I could slow down time, and even freeze it, but life moves on.
This month, I have been trying to reset my focus on what is important, and what is best for my business. For me personally, my family will always come first, and I felt I almost lost sight of that. Thankfully, my husband keeps me grounded and has helped me with this. Because of this realization, I have spent some time redesigning my site. I felt I was being stretched too thin and trying to focus on too many topics. I have gone back to just a main focus on providing uplifting books and learning resources. My main goal is to help you learn, grow, and discover more about yourself through books and education. That doesn't mean all of my book recommendations will be nonfiction. Far from it. I love fiction and feel you can learn a lot through fictional characters, especially about yourself.
I would love your feedback about the changes I have made. What do you like or dislike? What would you like to see? Post your comments below or go to my feedback page, https://www.feedmereads.com/feedback.
I want to start posting weekly Motivation Monday newsletters. I will provide a short message, and a book or eCourse recommendation to kick start your week.
Motivation Monday Pick
Every summer, my husband and I try to do some type of summer learning with our kids. In the past, we have used Summer Bridge Workbooks with them. They were simple to follow. It was just two pages a day with the lessons already setup. However, my older kids have outgrown them. This summer, I want them to own their learning. I want them to explore their passions and have fun with it. I am hoping that MasterClass will help with this.
MasterClass is an online learning platform designed to provide lessons from experts directly to your home. There are nine categories you can choose from.
Film & TV
Sports & Games
Each class is taught by some of the top experts in their industries.
Writing for young audiences: R.L. Stine (My son top pick)
Acting: Samuel L. Jackson (This is my daughters top pick)
Self-Made Entrepreneurship: Sara Blakely (My top pick)
These are just three examples of classes my family plans on exploring this summer. There are over 80 classes available. It would surprise me if you couldn’t find one to motivate you and help you take charge of your learning.
Check it out for yourself and see what you can find.
Join my family this summer with a one of a kind online educational experience with MasterClass. Stay tuned for updates from us as we explore our top picks. We will be making posts on my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/feedmereads, or you can visit my eCourse Reflection's page.
