Good morning! This week has been quite a ride for me. I’ve been blown away and oh-so-thankful for the response to the DESIGN YOUR LOOK challenge (only one day of voting left!) and the excitement around the sneak peek of the bag collection.
I will give a preview: next week I’ll be moving to a different apartment in my building on Tuesday and Wednesday. Then on Thursday I fly out to San Fransisco to see my dear friend Crystal and shoot our bag lookbook (!!). That Saturday Mr. Lively is flying in to SF so we can do a bit of exploring there and then drive down to LA. Which means next Tuesday through the following Tuesday I will be out of the office and in crazy go-go-go mode. But no worries here, I have a great series lined up for MML themed around exfoliating clutter for all those pack-rats and passionate purgers.
Midnight Hustler Book Club
I’d like do a huge shout out to the hustlers in the Midnight Hustler discussion boards. I am blown away by the awesome connections that are being made, suggestions, support, and encouragement. It’s amazing to see the dialogues unfold and I highly recommend other soon-to-be Hustlers or Hustler “Alumni” (people who have quit their day job for their dream job) to get involved.
Sterk, a Hustler on the boards recently suggested a book club for the group around (the very cute) Jon Acuff’s book Quitter, coming out on May 10th. From hopping over to his site and reading his blog, I can tell this is the perfect book to kick off a Hustler book club. Here’s an awesome video trailer and a sample from the first chapter of the book. If this grabs you at all, please hop over to the boards and check in as Sterk will be leading the club through the book once it launches.
Also, I can’t help but point out some other great threads right now around topics like net worth vs. self worth, striking a balance between hustling and personal life, making the day job more bearable, and support (and non-support) from loved ones. Please hop in and join the conversations!
And for those of you with blogs dying to share your Midnight Hustling spirit, please feel free to use the button above to show your support of the group and feel free to link it to the MH Hall of Fame or MH Discussion. Gotta represent.
PS- April’s DIY DYL is coming later today!
