Apparently, we're all about introducing new content series this week.
So I have a confession to make. I'm a certified information junkie. I get lost in the internet vortex, reaching for all things career, leadership, entrepreneurship and faith. I probably subscribe to a zillion newsletters and my inbox is constantly cluttered. Do you relate? Yeah, I thought so. Well, I'm going to try and make your (and my) life a little bit easier.
Welcome to my newest series: ICYMI: The Career Advice Collective. Come back every Friday to hone in on the most interesting, useful and thought-provoking content as it relates to your career. My own Top Ten List if you will. Or the Jena-fied version of Oprah's Favorite Things. (I <3 Oprah.)
Call it what you will, but I assure you - these are the only things you need to read this week to keep on the up-and-up with your life and career.
I was struggling, knowing what to get my manager for Christmas, but this article (my favorite from The Muse this week!) just made my life a whole lot easier. Plus, if anyone wants to send something my way....I'd be down for ANYTHING on this list. ;)
I really need to reign in my book budget. This month, I've spent so much moolah on books. But you know what, knowledge is power. And this book is 1,000% worth it. If you're looking for insight on how to create a meaningful life, this book is gold. I'm only halfway through and I've already learned so much about myself and how I want to build my life and career.

I love getting career inspo from women who are doing fabulous things. I stumbled across this article about Tyler Haney - the brain behind athleisure line Outdoor Voices. The brand really has a cult following, but it should. Because their product is awesome. And this woman is crazy cool. Read on.
I've always been a huge fan of Relevant Magazine. They provide Christian-based advice and news in a millennial format. I read it every day. This article is a must for the overachievers (me included).

Oh and I was in Grit and Virtue this week, so that was pretty fun.
