weekly roundupDid you miss a day or two of news this week? Did you forget some tips you wanted to implement at your startup? It happens. You’re out there trying to rule the world for crying out loud. Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered. Here’s a mashup of all of the Startup News & Advice you should know:

Things To Add To Your To-Do List

  1. Rid yourself of dead weight. We carry the past with us – both good and bad. However, ignoring the negativity or pain from past hurts can keep us from enjoying new experiences. Try this Lioness exercise for some self-reflection.
  2. App developer Delvv, which happens to be founded by a female entrepreneur, just released their new Defumblr application. The smart system allows you to access the most important information and apps you use on your phone with just a single swipe of the finger. How does it know what you care about? Check out how it works and if this could be the answer to your organizational nightmares.
  3. Make sure your freebies are working for you. The days of giving away your talents and products for free to just anyone are over. Entrepreneurs need to have a consistent, cost-effective plan for how they will donate their services. See if your method holds up here.

Things To Meditate On

  1. Are you looking to try new things in 2016? Last week we gave you a list of Our 18 Favorite Things. Take a gander and find something to try that interests you.
  2. February is the Go Red For Women heart health campaign. Lioness is proud to be a sponsor and we challenge women everywhere to stay healthy. Find out what to expect at this year’s Western Mass luncheon.
  3. Who doesn’t want to know how to live and finish rich? Marie Forleo and her guest David Bach give us the know-how.

What Your Peers Were Doing This Week

  1. Mogul CEO Tiffany Pham is back at LionessMagazine.com, giving us her motivations and why it’s important to keep a multicultural mindset.
  2. Fashion is having a revolution by featuring models with Down’s Syndrome and other who are finally experiencing body acceptance. Shaholly Ayers is the first model to walk in New York Fashion Week without a prosthesis. She is a congenital amputee and suffered horrible bullying when she was a child. At age 18 she left her native Ohio to become a role model for the many who would have never believed they had a shot in the industry.

Last But Not Least (some empowerment)

Go for it! Go after the thing that makes you blaze with passion. There are a number of people who are currently walking this Earth trying to figure out what they like, but you already know what you LOVE. Why waste time doing anything else?
