Welcome to The Weekly Roundup! This is a weekly segment that will feature great content you may have missed from this week. I’ll give you one piece of content to read, watch and listen to, and I’ll show you one exercise you need to try and one person you should follow on social media!
There are so many blogs, videos, podcasts, etc. out there, it’s tough to see them all and consume new info. Although I can’t see and share them all, this is my attempt to sharing quality info that I come across each week. Enjoy – and if you feel like sharing with your network, I wouldn’t hate that at all…
