For Setting & Achieving Goals

To live your dream life, you have to create it. And to create it, you need to set goals, track your progress, reflect on your progress, optimize your actions, and revisit your goals.

My favorite workbook is Aileen Xu’s (she’s a youtuber) Artist of Life workbook. But there are also tons of free goal setting worksheets online.

To Discover Your Interests

We talk a lot about how self-discovery is an important part of job-hunting.

This is why, I invested in a membership that helps me explore my interests. My favorite resource is Skillshare because it allows me to explore my interests as well as develop new skills that are relevant to marketing. Other popular options are Udemy, Coursea, and LinkedIn Learning.
