Welcome to One Woman Shop Weekly Finds - where we scour the web to bring you a curated list of posts, links, and resources that we think will help your business — and maybe even your life!
Is it possible to become exhausted by self-care? Despite being huge advocates of Solopreneur Sanity, we totally get where Alex Durand is coming from in her article for Thrive Global when she shares that her lengthy list of self-care priorities were gradually becoming a source of guilt -- and it's why we focus on just a few non-negotiables to start.
Ladies -- Can we get a "hell yes!" for Iceland? The country's putting regulations in place that'll hold employers accountable for closing the wage gap between male and female employees in the near future. (Insert hands raised emoji here!)
Before you head to the bank: The online queen of money mindset, Denise Duffield Thomas (AKA Lucky Bitch) is back with a post that's got fantastic biz advice, no matter your level...5 Ways to Avoid Taking Out a Business Loan.

Sanity + your inbox is possible...with SaneBox. (Seriously, it's tough not to love that name.) SaneBox saves its average user 12+ hours/month on email through its unique filing and task system -- and our friends there have offered us a $15 code to layer onto your free trial when you give it a go with this link!
Passive income. Passive income. Passive income. (Oh, it doesn't work like Beetlejuice?)

That's why we appreciate Farideh's myth-busting article on passive income.
Despite being a huge perk of being a solopreneur, working from home can sometimes become...mundane. That's why we're loving this list of "universally-wining environment designs" from the IDEO team of designers, meant to "deliver a jolt of creativity." (Yep -- these are meant for corporate spaces, but there's no reason we can't steal ideas like #3, #9, and more for our home spaces!)
