Inspire Me Monday #30 – Week Of July 30, 2012

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
Judy Palmer

  31. Lauren says:

    Hi, I just discovered your blog—what a great idea.

    I write a blog for solopreneurs and professionals on business and career strategy . My advice for them this week is to be sure to get regular doses of inspiration, not your basic business and networking fare, but the kind that “gets you excited all over again about the things you love or maybe has you falling in love with something totally new.”

    What inspired my post was attending a wonderful thing called Creative Mornings. To read about it visit my blog at
