If you’ve been a part of the Think Tank of Three tribe for a while, you might have noticed the crickets around here. During the last few months, we have hit some roadblocks and had major changes come into our lives. Instead of trying to push on through and deliver sub-par or half-assed content, we took our own advice and took a break.
But we have regrouped, brainstormed, made some changes and updates to the site, and are now back and working to bring you more support and empowerment from successful women in our community.
We still have a bit more work to do before we are able to share our newest guests and updated posts so sit tight. I promise new content is coming and we couldn’t be more excited for it!
To keep you inspired until then, we wanted to share some of the content that we’ve been reviewing and relistening to as we build back up to Think Tanking again. In the spirit of putting on our own oxygen masks first, we pulled some of our most popular posts on Self-Care out of the vault for you.
