READ: The Big Life

While re­search­ing her book, Ann Shoket— for­mer long­time ed­i­tor of Seven­teen mag­a­zine— had a series of din­ners with twenty- and thir­tysome­thing women to talk about the quest to find the ca­reer, re­la­tion­ship and friend groups that would ful­fill them. The re­sult? Real­is­tic ad­vice, re­lat­able sto­ries and buck­ets of in­spi­ra­tion.

LIS­TEN: Free­dom Life­style

Sam Lal­ib­erte quit her soft­ware- sales job in sum­mer 2017 to go free­lance ( do­ing brand con­sult­ing and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment, among other things), and her free­dom in­spired her to start a pod­cast in which she talks to other en­tre­pre­neur­ial women about the life- chang­ing ben­e­fits of go­ing solo. Don’t be sur­prised if you’re tempted to turn your kitchen into an of­fice by episode 2.

DOWN­LOAD: Hap­pify

Feel­ing down, whether about the state of the world ( to­tally jus­ti­fi­able) or the state of your life ( to­tally fix­able), is a pretty big ob­sta­cle on the road to You 2.0. But ( you guessed it) there’s an app for that. Hap­pify’s games, quizzes and ac­tiv­i­ties are de­signed to get you think­ing more pos­i­tively, and its ap­proach is grounded in ac­tual sci­en­tific re­search. Think of it as fun ther­apy.
