Taking The Lazy Route This Week

J. Kelly Hoey - Build Your Dream Network

It’s late Sunday…or Monday morning depending on how you count the time (when I’m writing this post for my newsletter). And yeah, it’s late and I’m thinking about the d#mn weekly newsletter I committed to sending out every Tuesday.

Me and my big soapbox of ideas on creating content.

Here’s the thing.

I’ve been writing a lot recently. A LOT. A whole lot. On networking over on Forbes. And on personal finance topics on GO Banking Rates. Plus a bunch of micro-posts on Instagram and a longer post on Medium on workspace + work culture + design + engagement +networking in connection with a new influencer project for Capital One.

AND I’m thoroughly committed to following the advice around networking and content (like consistency) that I dish out.

It would be rather hollow to write a book on building networks then not religiously follow my own advice.

But I’m feeling end of weekend, summer lazy in my big Business Class seat after a relaxing weekend on the beach.

So guess what! A compromise of sorts this week. While enjoying my business class upgrade on a choppy flight back to New York City from Florida, I decided to bypass any hint of Virgo guilt on the originality of the newsletter — and I’m taking a big old end of summer lazy a** pass on writing something new, original, boom! crazy-career-momentum-insightful for you to read here. Rather, go read the good stuff I’ve been pumping out elsewhere.


Move it. Move your career onwards by hitting one of the links below (or do what my friend Simon did this past weekend: take a second read of Build Your Dream Network).

Over on Forbes I’m a bit fixated on peer networks (and on how women venture capitalists are networking):

  1. Cycling To Success: How This VC Is Building Her Investor Network
  2. The Most Important Network For Your Career Is The One You’re Ignoring
  3. Be Honest And Skip The Agenda When Building Your Peer Network
  4. The Key To A Strong Peer Mentoring Relationship Is Honesty

On GO Banking Rates I share the pathetic starting salary I faced as a new college grad (and more of my budgeting/financial decision making):
