Some weeks I have a theme for my newsletter and some weeks I just decide to give you a smorgasbord of fabulous freebies you can download/access to use in your business…

This is one of those weeks so without further ado let’s get to the good stuff.

First up is an excellent round-up of 40 graphic and design freebies you can snaffle to spice up your sites, products, life – you name it. You don’t have to be a designer to use these so go grab ‘em and get creating:

I’ve just started reading Brene Brown’s wonderful book, Daring Geatly, and so this week I’m recommending not one but two TED videos – her powerful talks on vulnerability and confronting shame, both of which have amassed millions of views and changed many lives for the better.

I recommended the first some time ago but she is always worth revisiting if you’ve seen these before:
