Weekly Finds

Welcome to One Woman Shop Weekly Finds – where we members of the community scour the web to bring you a curated list of posts, links, and resources that we they think will help your business—and maybe even your life! This week’s curator: copywriter + editor Sara Frandina.

Did you know? Twitter has over 271 million active users. That’s what’s made it such an important tool for solopreneurs + One Woman Shops. If you feel like you’re lost in the Twittersphere or just not quite using it correctly, check out these 7 Twitter Hacks for Bloggers + Small Business Owners from Kayli Wanders.

“Content is king.” We know it’s true, but sometimes, it’s tough to remember the small things. In this QuickSprout article, Neil Patel breaks down 37 seemingly simple tips for writing great content for both B2C and B2B audiences that’s sure to increase your traffic.

When you work from your desk alllllll day doing what you love, it can be a struggle to remember to get up and move. Luckily, with these “one-stop workouts” from LuLu Lemon’s Pinterest board, you don’t have to stray too far from your computer to get your sweat on.

37 seems to be the lucky number this week. In this “monster of a blog post,” Adam from BloggingWizard breaks down (seriously, breaks down) a step-by-step checklist to setting up your email list and getting your first 1,000 subscribers. Even if you’ve already started, this is a fantastic resource — and printable, too!

For you One Woman Shop ladies fully engaged in the side hustle, here’s some gratifying news: a new study shows that “businesses that are launched while the founder is employed and only later become that founder’s full-time focus are one-third less likely to fail than those that began as full-time ventures.” Alexis Grant breaks down the details here. Keep hustling, ladies!

If you’re ever feeling a little lost, use this to aid your gut check: 5 Signs That You’re on the Right Path, from online magazine A Little Opulent. One of my favorite lines: “a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”

Podcast alert! Is it me, or do more and more super resourceful podcasts seem to be popping up every day? New on my radar this week is the 5 am Miracle podcast, focused on “dominating your day before breakfast.” Early risers, rejoice. It’s amazing what can get done while the world’s still sleeping!
