December News, Tips, & Reads

News, Tips, and Reads for December | Jenn Wells Design

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Good Solstice, Happy Kwanzaa, or whatever holiday you celebrate!  And if you don’t celebrate a midwinter holiday, I’m sorry – I hope you still get some tasty food somewhere.

Business Sneak Peek

An exciting change for my business this year – I’ll be donating 10% of my profits to charity. This year’s haul wasn’t huge because I only started collecting in October, BUT I’m thrilled to be starting this new tradition.  I’ve picked 4 domestic charities from UPenn’s Center for High-Impact Philanthropy and I’d love it if you would weigh in on which one to choose!

  1. The Nurse-Family Partnership (education and assistance for at-risk mothers/babies)
  2. Feeding America (hunger relief)
  3. Year Up (career training and opportunities for low-income youths)
  4. Futures Without Violence (solutions and prevention for domestic violence)

Donation to be made December 31st so vote by Saturday, December 30th!

Book Review: You are a Badass at Making Money

Sometimes I think you just get the right book at the right time. But with that caveat, I found this incredibly inspiring. I’m not 100% sold on manifesting but I definitely have some money blocks and the in-your-face bluntness of this book force me to confront that. It also made me laugh and gave me quite a few other things to think about. I think anyone who has career or business goals would benefit from this.

Favorite Reads

You’d think I’d eventually get tired of articles about goals, but I never do: How to set goals, how to reach goals, and business planning.

Writing content is hard, but this article is full of ideas to make your website content more interesting.

I like the idea of minimalism, but I’ve never gotten much further than “minimal-ish.” That doesn’t mean I don’t love a good article on simplifying!

Some inspiration to take action now.

How was your December?  Are you ready to take on the new year? Which charity should I donate to this year?!
