Your (Holiday) Weekend Guide
Need some stuff to do this long weekend? I’m here to help!
Hey, your Memorial Day Weekend is almost here, and I wanted to send you some ideas if you’re looking for fun stuff to do, watch, read, drink.
Here’s what I’ve been up to and think you might enjoy:
What I’m watching: I can’t wait to start Season Two of “Selling Sunset” on Netflix. It’s a (great???) mix of Bravo, HGTV, ABC (The Bachelor!) and Lifetime all rolled into one. Totally mindless and totally fun. Can’t wait!
What meditations I’m digging: I just finished Judson Brewer’s “Unwind Your Anxious Mind” 10-day course (for the second time) on Insight Timer. Some really good, tactical recommendations to help train your mind to go a more positive place when you’re feeling anxious. Brewer is also the author of “The Craving Mind” which I also highly recommend.
What I’m reading: I’ve been on a “non-business-focused” kick for the past couple months, and I’m really excited to start “On Being Human: A Memoir of Waking Up, Living Real, and Listening Hard” by Jennifer Pastiloff. I saw this book highlighted on the shelves of Powell’s when I was in Portland in late February (decades ago!) and look forward to starting this read. You might like it too!
What PodCasts I’m listening to: I’m really digging “The Happiness Lab” by Laurie Santos (she’s the instructor on Yale’s “The Science of Wellbeing” on Coursera – you might have heard of this). Her latest episode from last Sunday, “Working Your Way to Happiness,” is worth checking-out if you’re feeling stuck professionally. If you’re looking for other thought-provoking content, check-out Crooked Media’s “Six Feet Apart” hosted by Alex Wagner.
What music I’m playing: I’m loving Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Dedicated Side B” released yesterday. Super fun, light tracks for your afternoon walks around your neighborhood.
What I’m enjoying during my virtual happy hour: Bottled Coca-Cola with real sugar. Enough said.
What I’m talking about: I’m so grateful to continue to help my community (you!) during this challenging time. Want to talk or know someone who could use some help? Sign-up for free 1:1 coaching this month at calendly.com/engagedpursuit.
Take care of yourself and here’s to your Engaged Pursuit!

My Take - May's Job Numbers
Spark of better things to come? We’ll see… Unemployment numbers for May were released this morning, and the reaction from the analyst community can be summed-up in one word: surprise. 2. 5 million jobs were added in May and the unemployment rate fell to 13. 3 percent. Wall Street is responding positively, with the S&P 500 up o

What I'm (Virtually) Seeing Out There...
Wondering how the market is reacting heading into May? I’ve got you covered. Hey, a few quick things: I hope you/your community are doing well. John and I (and Rosie) are hanging in, enjoying lots of neighborhood walks and the latest spin-off “Listen to Your Heart” (it’s so bad… yet, so good). I’m extending my free 1:1 virtual
