Friday Finds – Inspiration…Action…RESULTS!

Friday Finds – Inspiration…Action…RESULTS!

We’re back with another installment of Cowan and Company’s #FridayFinds, and this week there is no shortage of inspiration to get you moving forward on your next big goal/venture/move. It’s easy to feel a lack of motivation after what feels like a long, cold, DARK season, but it’s safe to say we’re ready to jump WAY forward. There’s a definite theme amongst this week’s picks – with all kinds of tips, tricks and inspo from some of the most influential and successful entrepreneurs, self-starters and go-getters out there. Listen to their stories, read through their journeys (*note the ups, the downs and everything in between), and hopefully you too will feel encouraged to continue creating your own success story. Cheers!
 
PODCAST
 
Second Life with Hillary Kerr
 
A great podcast that is easy to love for many reasons. First – the all-female rooster of guests is both empowering and inspiring to say the least. Second – for anyone who has second guessed their career and life paths, this will be a great reminder that growth, change and new direction have the potential to ultimately change your life. While change is often associated with the fear of the unknown, listening to these strong women find success in a new life chapter will have you thinking of your own untapped possibilities.

How to Stop Procrastinating and Boost Your Willpower by Using Temptation Bundling by James Clear
 
A fun yet practical read on the best ways to maximize your time – by combining the things you need to do with the things you want to do. Aka squat challenge + new episode of GOT. This strategy is all the more relevant as the bliss of the new year (and all the self-made promises) seem so, so far away. There’s no easier way to beat the guilt of ‘wasting time’ than by adding something useful and productive to the mix. Trust us – your future self will thank you
 
BOOK
 
Shoe Dog by Phil Knight
An incredible window into the life and journey of the founder of Nike – Phil Knight. Regardless of where you stand with the Nike brand, the process of taking this company from the backseat of a car, to a global phenomenon is nothing short of remarkable. It’s definitely not always pretty, but you can be sure you will feel inspired by the persistence, grit and dedication it takes to achieve something of this magnitude. Could not put this one down!
