For today's profile, we have another special episode of the podcast. I'm honored to introduce you to someone who's been a mentor to me for more than a decade.

We've all heard the joke that when women are stressed, we either eat or go shopping. I definitely do more of the former, but if you prefer the latter, today's episode is just for you. Today my good friend Julie Shuttlesworth will share show how we can shop smarter and save lots of money in the process. Listen in, and you’ll learn how to quickly raise our awareness about shopping, how to make simple shifts to save money, why the myths of the hoarder and full-time shopper are false, and how to save money on big-ticket items.
Things are different, so this monthly report will be too. For most of August (and July, truthfully), I struggled. Every meal was a battle, and I was rarely victorious. My sleep was limited, and my intensity lagged during my workouts. Looking back, the reasons are obvious. But at the time, it made me feel like a fraud. How could I write and coach people about healthy habits when mine were a mess? I quickly decided that the only thing I could do was simply tell the truth and be vulnerable. Anything less was paralyzing. Then, a funny thing happened. My Tribe reminded me about what else was going on in my life and how that affects my habits, particularly the personal health ones. They read back what I'd shared when they were tackling tough projects. It all made sense.
In this episode of The Habit Chef Podcast, we'll explore the four steps to measuring your progress so you'll know when to celebrate or shift gears.

Today, I'm honored to introduce you to the man known only as Norcross. We met in 2010 when my online business was a mess and I needed serious help. A mutual friend connected us, and it was all sorted out over a weekend. Only later did I realize how fortunate I was. In online circles, Norcross is regarded as one of the best and the brightest, particularly when it comes to WordPress. Nearly daily, he fields tweeted questions from around the globe, suggesting fixes, plugins, or technical particulars. If Gary V says we should seek to be useful, he could write a case study on Norcross. For those of us looking to sort out the new world of work, Norcross shows one path to success. Be exceedingly competent in your craft and relentlessly helpful to your network. On this Labor Day, I wanted to share this special profile.
