Brooke Notes: The Publisher’s Perspective
A couple of months ago, I started going for a walk every single (weekday) morning. I wake up, enjoy my cup of coffee and head out to take my two dogs on an hour long walk. The best part? My mom does it with me! She doesn’t live nearby, so we aren’t able to physically walk together, but I have my airpods in and we chat on the phone while we’re both walking. We call it our “morning meeting.” I’ve found this time to be so valuable for brainstorming ideas and making a game plan for having a productive, successful day. We’ve been working together for over 10 years now and I wish we’d started this morning meeting routine LONG ago!
