The Sunday 6 – Vol 1


I want to introduce to you The Sunday 6 – Vol 1!  Throughout the week, and in my free time, I read a lot of articles. From small bloggers, to larger publications. I consume lots of information.

Some pieces influence my content, and others teach me new things. In any case, these 6 articles are my favorite ones that I come across.

This digest will be segmented into categories – productivity, psychology, personal finance, etc. and will contain “Post highlights” from each article. I will include the link to the original post for your viewing pleasure.

If there are any articles that you think are worth including for the week, please share them with me! I’m always looking to learn more!

Here are my favorite posts from this week:
