Best of the Week July 6th

weekly roundup july 6

Happy Sunday!  I haven’t done a weekly roundup in a while but I like to only share when I have some really great stuff so here are some awesome things I found, did, or read this week:

I read: #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal  I had never heard of this book, or of Nasty Gal until a few weeks ago.  In one of the forums I participate in someone had mentioned this book so out of curiosity I looked it up.  As you probably have noticed by now I don’t have much time to read so I buy audio books and use my commuting time as my reading and learning time.  Wow!  This book is absolutely awesome and I recommend it to any woman whether she wants to be an entrepreneur, is interested in fashion, or just has a job that she doesn’t love love love.  I will post a full review in the near future but for now, read it!  Girl Boss

 

The Fortune Cookie Principle  Jess Van Den at Create and Thrive started a “Creative Business” Book Club and this book is our first assignment for July.  Well I started reading and couldn’t put it down.  Jiwa teaches us that we should be less concerned with the “commodity” or actual product we are selling and more concerned with our story.  It is so fascinating to see how other companies have successfully done this.

Coolest Thing I did this week (and probably all month): The Timber Ripper Mountain Coaster (doesn’t it sound insane?)  I am a huge chicken and I hate roller coasters.  But after watching many many very small children take repeated rides I figured I would give it a shot.  It is hard to explain but you ride on your own little cart to the top of the mountain.  Then you go down the mountain on a roller coaster type track.  The best part is that you control your speed.  By the third time I actually wasn’t so scared and went pretty fast!  I wasn’t able to take pictures on the down (obviously) but hopefully these will give you an idea of how completely awesome it was:
