Time to get away for a break, but hesitant to do it by yourself? It's sad that our friends and travel buddies don't enjoy the same level of freedom and flexibility in their schedules, but fret not as Darling Magazine shares tips for solo travel. "You’re a party of one, so let your choices run wild."
If you find yourself frustrated that your products and services aren't selling, check your call to action. Christine Kane argues that it’s probably lacking clarity. Don't make the mistake of assuming your audience knows what to do; tell them.
It's one the greatest challenges of being a one woman shop: our time is limited. Yet, if you’re anything like me, you struggle with saying no. This Zen Habits post gets you started on respectfully declining what isn't right for you. Relief!
Don't let the daunting task of writing a business plan hold you back from launching something spectacular. Start with the steps shared here, and mold it into a living, working document that works for and grows with you.
Has your phone become a permanent extension of your hand? (Guilty.) In this post, Gala Darling comes to the scary realization many of us solopreneurs face: by constantly having her phone in her hand, she's "checked out of real life, not engaging with other people, and barely present."

This one is for the feel good category: Kali Hawlk of Common Sense Millennial shares Four Reasons Why Women Make Powerful Entrepreneurs via GoGirl Finance. I think we can all share a virtual cheers to that!
