This week, the Husmus Social Circle had its first spotlight guest blogger- Kori Linn! Kori is a life coach who helps badass women crush it at work, without crushing their personal well-being in the process. We originally crossed paths through the F Bomb Breakfast Club Facebook Group, and I’m so happy that she was willing to share her advice on and experience with having anxiety, but not letting it hold you back. I just know it will resonate with so many people struggling, especially this time of the year when it can be extra stressful! Read her blog post here!
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 😫)… 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!
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!

From the little bits and pieces I’ve learned from editing podcasts that discuss astrology, I know that 1- Mercury governs communication and 2- Mercury is currently in retrograde. This is pretty weird because my communication/networking has been THRIVING this week! Here’s why:
Girlboss. I joined the Girlboss community earlier this week and it was like the floodgates opened. Within HOURS I connected with Arielle Dettmer, a kick-ass activist and photographer, and designed a banner for her YouTube channel!
ANXIETY. I posted in the Girlboss forums about my own anxiety and how it has affected my career journey, and asked if any one else had similar experiences. Turns out- YES! I got SO MANY responses! And the craziest part was how some people thought they were the only ones! Ideas were tossed around about a blog/podcast/some other type of project on the subject, and I’m SO excited to see where this could go!
Barter & Be. It’s a site that connects small business entrepreneurs so they can exchange essential goods and services without utilizing capital… and it’s all females and all amazing. It’s completely free and I’ve been on it for maybe 2 days now? Still obsessed.
