What's inspiring Bowe Frankema, co-founder and Head of Product at Dollie.

A podcast worth listening to: 
Business and WP industry podcasts are great. But you know what's also great?! Overly in-depth talks about Stephen King books, the many terrible movie adaptions and anything else King. The Kingcast is absolutely fantastic if you love anything King.

A concept worth understanding: 
Empathetic goal chasing. Dedicate yourself to a (business) goal, passion, or interest without sacrificing the relationships and well-being of those you love most. That should include yourself too. Maintaining a balance between your personal ambitions and having close friendships, family relationships and being a loving partner. That's what it's all about if you ask me!

A Twitter account worth following: 
KatieKeithBarn2 and learnwithmattc have been doing a new WP podcast (ha, still managed to recommend a WP podcast after all) called WP Product Talk. Their Twitter feeds are also full of tips and advice for those who are into building WP products.

An article worth reading:
I really enjoyed reading the journey of the team at and how they managed to enter an overcrowded market through doing things differently. Bootstrapped, strong vision, not afraid to go off the beaten path. For sure worth a read.

A habit worth forming:
Be sure to check in with yourself multiple times a day. My anchor is my pup. I go over to her for a quick cuddle and a couple of minutes of relaxing. If I notice that I'm stressed then I chill with the pupper until I feel better. Sometimes that means a very slow day (or week) but it is what it is.
