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.
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 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:
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!

Episode 45 of Sara Weinreb’s Medium Well Podcast: Design Thinking: The fundamentals and how to use it to grow your business (solo series)
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!
