I’m a sucker for a “best of” list.
Best Instagram scheduling apps.
Best movies of the year.
Best portrayal of Mr Darcy. (That one’s easy. Colin Firth.)
I’m also a sucker for great content, so it makes sense to have a roundup of my fave posts from this year.
(Psst. I’m actually making this an annual thing. Check out the 2016 roundup here.)
And with millions of blog posts published EVERY DAY (fo’ real. You can even watch them being counted here – it’s insane), it’s safe to say that some epic content is bound to fall through the cracks. We’re only human after all. And if you’re anything like me, you can’t be reading content 24/7 – food and sleep is important too.
So today, I’m narrowing things down a bit and sharing my fave posts from 2017 with you.
These posts are from fellow entrepreneurs who have impacted me in some way this year. Some are as simple as making me laugh. Others have impacted me in a much deeper way and changed the way I run my business.
If you’re looking for a bit of alone time this holiday season, grab your favourite drink, curl up somewhere comfy and dig in – I got you covered.
Happy reading and I’ll *see* you in the new year!
