The weekend is finally here and I hope you had another great week as an online entrepreneur.  If you are a freelancer, online marketer or basic blogger is always good to step away for a bit from the monitor.  This week I tried to make some adjustments to my scheduling, giving me additional time to go to the Gym and workout and walk the dogs a bit longer than usual. We have 4 of them.  With this I would like to bring some articles to the table that I believe are good reads and can bring something to the table,  It’s always a good time to learn a thing or two so make sure you are using your time wisely.  We are blessed with the power to control what we can do throughout the day, we are not tied to the – to 5 strains.  So make sure you appreciate and make the best of that extra time with learning new skills and ideas.
