Before I decided to stay home with Jack, I worked for a great company, although it was unique in the fact that most of us were spread across several states. I’m all for boosting employee morale, so one thing my boss let me implement was a Friday Shout Out email.
I’d email the entire company every Thursday, asking for “shout outs.” I encouraged everyone to be on the lookout each week to ‘catch’ their co-workers doing awesome things. I’d then compile all the shout outs and send them out first thing Friday morning. I thought it was a fun way to lift up and encourage one another!
I miss my Friday Shout Outs, so I figured I’d bring the idea over to the blog. So without further adieu, here’s who I caught being great this week!
// JENNIFER // When I just so happened to see that Jenn was offering a free ecourse titled 7 Days to Self Employed, I jumped on that bandwagon real quick. I’ve started every morning this week with Jenn’s lesson of the day, spending time thinking on her “homework” and basically being overly inspired by what she’s doing. I love when women follow their passions and do what they love. It’s brave and cool and I dig it. (While this ecourse is already in session, I know she has future plans to distribute it to the masses, so stay turned!)
// ANGIE // Angie blogs over at My So-Called Chaos, and a few months ago she held a contest in which I was voted the winner in the “funniest blog” category (thank you everyone, your checks are in the mail.) My understanding was that I’d won a month of free ad space on her blog, and I was totally stoked! But Angie has gone above and beyond, not only giving me ad space on her blog, but she tweets about my posts, and she’s even doing an interview post with me. If you’re looking to invest in ad space with a fellow blogger, I’d HIGHLY suggest Angie!
// MEGAN // Megan’s blog is downright beautiful. She has gorgeous photos in every post and she’s a sublime writer. I’m always friend-jealous of how she partners with great brands in such creative ways, and it’s apparent to me that she’s a genuinely hard worker (she even started a podcast.) I just think she’s cool. Her dog, Ender, is also super cute, so there’s that.
That’s it for this Friday, folks! I could shout out from the roof tops about all my amazing, creative friends (and people I creepily follow who have no idea I exist) but we’ll just have to save them for future Fridays 😉 Have a great weekend!
