8 Must Read Posts For Motivation and Inspiration

Last week I shared my struggles with you about my business and how things are not going as well as I planned.

Well I made a little effort this week and worked on my social media sties, as well as starting a promotion featuring an item of the week.

The investment of my time has paid off a little. The views in my shop have really picked up (but no sales), and I also created and sent out my newsletter for August. You can check it out here. I am trying to make this a regular thing for my Etsy shop, and so far I am not doing so bad this year.

I am still lacking in motivation and feeling a little uninspired. I know once I get back in my groove, things will be a little easier.

In the Monday Motivation post JoJo from Tahoma Beadworks & Photography, Leann from Pasque Flower Ponderings, T from Poppy Place PDX, Reshma from Masala Mango Mantra, also expressed how they were feeling unmotivated and uninspired, so I thought I would share some of the posts I have been reading to help me get out of my funk.

Sometimes it helps to read a little something everyday to stay positive and motivated. 

Here are 8 blog posts to check out each day over the next week, for some inspiration to keep moving forward.

  1. Great list of reads...I've got 'em all marked...thanks!

  2. Thank you!!! I will definitely be checking them out. I know I need the 3 steps to stop procrastinating!!!

  3. I am really happy you have been motivated to work on social media (and reaping the rewards), that is a challenge for me.

    I have to admit I have been more motivated this week and getting a few sales and positive feedback on product has helped :)

    I guess a little validation goes a long way :)

    I hope I get opportunity to read these suggested blog posts :)

    I whizzed quickly thru the last one and liked what I saw so I will go back and read it tomorrow when I am not so sleepy :)

    Cheers, T. :)
