Fab Five: Blogs I Love

Over the last several months I have discovered some fantastic blogs that I enjoy reading. From leadership and growth to pure comic relief, there is something here for everyone.

1.  Michael Hyatt  I just love this guy.  From email etiquette to creating a life plan, Michael Hyatt offers insight and processes on a number of topics related to leadership and productivity.  He is the Chairman of Thomas Nelson Publishers, and he helps people live and lead on purpose.

2.  Leadership Freak  Winner of the Best of Leadership blogs in 2010, Dan Rockwell helps leaders reach higher in 300 words or less.  His posts are short, digestible nuggets of wisdom that any leader can apply immediately.  Whether you’re a mom running a household or an executive running a business, you will find Dan’s posts useful.

3.  Goins Writer  Jeff Goins is a writer who is wise beyond his years.  He produces excellent content about writing, creativity, and making a difference.  I always learn something new from his posts.  Plus what’s not to love about a guy who moved to Tennessee for his wife, and who wants to change the world?

4.  The Bearded Iris  Oh, Iris, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!  I have a blogger’s crush on her.  She is the Chris Rock of SAHMs. There hasn’t been a single post of hers that hasn’t made me literally laugh OUT LOUD.   I embarrassed myself on an airplane last month by spitting out my coffee, I laughed so hard.  The best part for me was discovering that not only did we attend the same college, we are in fact sorority sisters!  I learned this after blog stalking her for quite some time.  The woman is a genius.

5.  The Coach’s Corner  Mike Van Hoozer is a leadership expert and peak performance coach to business leaders, entrepreneurs, and elite athletes. He is an expert in the psychology of human performance and helps individuals and organizations reach their potential in sports, business, and life.  Not only that, he is a colleague and personal friend of mine who has mentored me and had a huge impact on my life.  He also has an incredible jump shot.

I hope that you will take the time to check out these great resources and that they make a difference in your life like they have in mine.  What blogs do YOU love?


About Time with Tracy

Busy mother of two, kickboxing addict, and clotheshorse. I play basketball and wear stilettos, not necessarily at the same time. I love coffee, red wine & a medium rare steak. My primary focus in life is to serve and encourage others. I'm a nerd with blonde hair and a southern accent. Nine out of ten people are shocked to learn I have a BS in Statistics and Industrial Management from Carnegie Mellon University. I started my career as an IT analyst with a ginormous consulting firm. After dabbling in strategy and business process reengineering, I changed careers to what might be considered insane: teaching teenagers. I taught at a private middle school in Houston, TX where I served as the Math Department Chair and Head Girls Basketball Coach. In 2004 my husband and I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where I continued to teach until we started a family. During that time I served on the Board of Directors at the Valley Pregnancy Center, where I was passionate about helping women in crisis. Loving people unconditionally is a ridiculously big deal to me. Last year we were thrilled to move back to Texas. I currently work at home in Austin raising our children, sprinkled in with massive amounts of laundry. I'm also a yoga newbie and enjoy mentoring executives for non-profit organizations.
