Links are a little late because of all of the work going on behind the scenes right now, but what’s better than a Monday morning with a great reading list? You’re welcome.

But first, a little announcement. Beginning July 17, I’ll be emailing a weekly newsletter on Friday mornings called “Over My French Press”.

So many of us are juggling self-employment, freelance careers, or creative paths and many of us are doing this while we spend the majority of our day home with little ones.  The newsletter will provide motivation and  inspiration for work-at-home moms and women pursuing creative careers.

The first 25 emails will be a series covering time-management strategies, encouragement about defining priorities, tips for pursuing work opportunities, my personal experience working from home as a mom, and much more.

The weekly conversation will be exclusive to this blog’s mailing list, so if you’re curious, sign up here for “Over My French Press.”
