There was a product that I really liked, but they've pivoted too many times in the past couple of years. So much so, that I've just lost trust in them and the founders. I don't think I'd ever risk spending time on their new product or any future product, no
I tweeted this a while back and I often think about it. People want to hire me because of my writing. What they don't appreciate is I write because of my experience. So, please hire me for my experience and not the output of words. — Rosie Sherry
I keep dipping in and out of this habit, but I always feel great when I'm doing it. I'm writing it here to remind me. It works and it's important. I seek to carefully design every aspect of my life in a positive way that works for me and my
I'm working on working towards a 20-hour work week—and it's not because I dislike my work. For someone who loves the work I do, this is hard. I want to become more focused on how I spend my time. I don't feel like I always spend my time well,
I've been saying this for a while and have made steps towards it, but not quite taken the time, or make it a priority. The world increasingly feels messed up. Day by day. Year by year. And the more time goes on, the less I want of the chaos and
I love the idea of taking notes and creating better organisation systems for our thoughts. But recently, I've been wondering whether we should just put more emphasis on writing or just publishing something in small form that feels useful and reference-able in the future. Write and tag things. Then we
Today is inspired by a Twitter Space that Erin and hosted as part of 100 Days of Twitter challenge. There's nothing wrong with learning how to do things from experts, the truth however is that we probably spend too much time doing it. We over think things, over taking action.
Seven fears that might be holding you back: Fear of unpredictabilityFear of rejectionFear of being unworthyFear of being insignificantFear of failureFear of trusting othersFear of being incapable
What Codie and I did this morning. A set of things to do. Custom dice to add some fun into it. A list to create a graph. Totally engaged in math, reading, writing and cleaning 🤪, you say? I ❤️ #unschooling
‘Quitting’ Indie Hackers was such a hard decision to make, especially when I love that community, that indie hacker movement, so much. Ultimately, it came down to personal reasons, the need to seek something new. And I have no shame in saying that I’ve shed tears over the past
Sometimes I’ve wondered whether it was a fluke that I grew Ministry of Testing with ‘kindness’. Whether I was just being a hippy. And maybe I should have focused more on ‘important stuff’ to grow a business. But I realize now, that being kind is the best strategy for
It shouldn’t be community first. That’s like defining a product upfront without any research. Instead, it should be conversations first. The conversations will lead you to the right thing. It could be community, but also maybe something else. And if it is community that you decide upon, you

He wanted banoffee pie as a birthday cake. We have a 9 year old Codie in da house!
Got a swing I can attach and detach from our climbing frame. Piper is loving it. Eloise is too. Now they have something else to fight over! 😬
They lasted 5 minutes before getting distracted.
I was quite pleased that I made this! And Eloise was happy too. 🤪
Mostly symmetrical, by Eloise age 5. Codie (now 8) did similar with #lego Duplo. Is there really any need to have worksheets around this? Just use the words, then grab a mirror.
Walked along the beach. Codie stayed at home with a headache. Piper was cranky, tired and crashed out. Eloise strode and scooted all the way! 😍
Went for a run when no one else was around.
Down at the beach. Fresh air and maintaining distance from people. 😬
Got a rare opportunity to hang in the garden with the girls.
Not very productive day. At least the weather is ok and I get to reset my brain on my walk home.
Munchkin and lollipop kids.
Piper has had it tough with the chicken pox. I can’t bear to take any real photos, but this is what my sister sent over as a present. 😍
She got soaked and said her sweet words when I bought her a treat.
Teaching my girls to read with Dear Zoo.
