Quote I’m pondering “You wouldn’t worry so much about what others think of you if you realised how seldom they do” – Eleanor Roosevelt

Book I’m readingThe little book of history. It’s a fantastic book charting our history from the dawn of civilisation to the modern world of today. It’s got fantastic visuals and I’m finding that learning from the past is helping me understand the now. Check it out, it’s easily digestible and fascinating to learn from.

Free Google / Powerpoint templates I’m using – Ever wanted professional-looking templates for an array of different occasions & topics? From C.V’s & marketing to business pitches and newsletters… Slidesgo has them all, and best of all there’s no signup. I’ve been using them quite a bit in the last week and they’re now my go-to for Google slide templates.

Building a personal brand – To some, personal branding is a turn-off, to others it’s a crucial part of building their career. In my quest to understand branding, I found Dominyka Venciūtė’s article. She describes 5 ways to build your brand and the part that resonated with me most was her sentence below:

“The secret of building a strong personal brand lies in understanding how you wish to be perceived. Once you figure that out, everything else will follow.”

Art I’m enjoyingThis site has some terrific US president portraits. They’re funny and incredibly creative. My favourite is the last one which depicts Reagan and a chimp!


I hope you have a fantastic weekend doing the things you enjoy with the people you love.
