That New Moon Energy…

Remember when “BDE” was a thing? I think “NME” (New Moon Energy) should be a thing, because this new season, new moon energy has me feeling POWERFUL. Capable. Ready! Here are some steps my NME has me taking:

  • Skillcrush. I’ve been obsessed with HTML ever since back in middle school when I realized you could view a site’s page source and peep their code. I loved customizing my Myspace, and my Teen Open Diary (RIP šŸ˜«)… but I never knew that any of that fell under the umbrella of “coding”. For me, when I thought of coding, I pictured Girl With a Dragon Tattoo type situations. But then I took Skillcrush’s Coding Bootcamp (and finished it in one night, because that’s just how I am), and it opened my eyes to how much I already know about coding, and how easy it is to learn! This is NOT an ad or endorsed by the Skillcrush team in ANY way, I’m just genuinely excited about how much I’ve learned and how much I’m still learning (cuz you KNOW I went back to enroll in more courses.) Expect this very website to be re-vamped soon!
  • Yellow Co. Again, NOT an ad, just an amazing community I’m super excited about. In my introductory post, I spoke a little about my goal with Husmus: increased access to events for entrepreneurs who can’t physically be there, and the Founder, Joanna Waterfall, seemed genuinely interested in my work and how she could make Yellow Co. more accessible as well. There are a lot of entrepreneurial groups out there, but it’s so refreshing and validating when you find a space where know your words are actually being SEEN!

Okay, onto the work!

Advocacy!

Earlier this week I also signed up for two courses on Coursera that I’m really excited about: An Introduction to Accessibility and Inclusive Design ( University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign ), & Social Impact Strategy: Tools for Entrepreneurs and Innovators ( University of Pennsylvania ).

One of my main goals in life has always been helping people, and I look forward to what these courses can teach me about how to do just that!

A Lot Of Catching Up To Do!

I’m a bit behind with keeping this updated, so there’s a lot to share!

Firstly, let’s talk about Mental Health Awareness and Elpha!

Elpha is an amazing female-founded and run community of women in all different fields of business. It’s been one of my daily websites to check in on, and there’s always something interesting being discussed there. October 10th was Mental Health Awareness Day, and also the day that Elpha featured ME! And my journey of being an entrepreneur that struggles with anxiety. Check out the article here!

I also can’t address mental health awareness without acknowledging the Husmus Social Circle, and how much we’ve grown! We’re now at 20 amazing members and always ready for more.

September Catch-Up

Much has been happening in the world of Husmus! I’m really giving a lot of my attention to building up The Husmus Social Circle… I just have so many ideas for things I can do and say that I wish someone had done and said to me when I was younger. Keep your eyes peeled for some content collabs with PepTalkHer and The Self Care Association!

A Sweet Week for Husmus!

Husmus’s First Collaboration

Huge thanks to Collabosaurus for playing matchmaker.

A few weeks ago, Husmus partnered with Subarz for a cross-promotional social media collab! I made Daphne, the Founder and Creator of Subarz, this promo graphic:

And in return, she sent me this TREASURE TROVE OF SWEETS:

(Not pictured: the bag of Chocolate Chip Subarz that I immediately tore into.)

I cannot speak highly enough of Subarz (they’re DELICIOUS- my sister and I have annihilated them,) or Daphne herself (SUCH a pleasure to work with!) This experience has me all kinds of excited for collaborations to come!

Husmus is Expanding! Introducing HusmusSocialCircle.com

This has been a VERY big week for Husmus!

It all started out with with me writing a few articles on LinkedIn (here and here). I shared them on some of the social media platforms I’m on, and I got a lot of responses. Like a LOT. And they all agreed that increased representation, visibility, inclusion, and a sense of community were all things that entrepreneurs living with mental health issues sorely needed. So I reached out to a few people… and I took the next baby step. I started the Husmus Social Circle. It’s a completely free forum for people dealing with the same struggles I am as an anxious person in a face-to-face, networking world. The site is still in its infancy, as I plan to grow it using the feedback I get from the members (yes, we have members!). So pop on over and check it out if you get the chance and want to join in!
