What to Read to Stay in the Know

February 27, 2019
Happy Wednesday friends! Being inundated with daily emails is one of the main reasons I signed up for Unroll Me a couple years ago, but there are a handful of "in the know" reads that are musts for me daily. I work in marketing for a financial services firm, so staying up to date on current events is pretty integral to my role. That being said, I don't have the time to read through the Wall Street Journal and other news sites and really need my information to be bite sized and have enough of it that I can carry on a conversation if asked about it. 
  • The Skimm || I'm sure that you've heard of the Skimm, but in case you haven't this daily email is like sitting with your girlfriend over a cup of coffee and hearing the the world news in a way that makes sense and actually sticks with you. 
  • Morning Brew || I'll be the first to admit that even though I work in finance, reading about the markets is not the most exciting thing to me - enter in the Morning Brew. These writers keep things light and fun and the best part is I finally understand what's happening without my eyes glazing over! Described as a daily business briefing for millennial, it's the best one I read for staying up to date for everything from startups to politics. 
  • The Hustle || The newest daily email that I've started reading, it's much heavier on the text than the other two, but packed with loads of important information. Admittedly I don't read this every single day, but if my commute is a bit longer than I definitely skim on my way to work for any headlines that I find appealing. 
  • The Every Girl / The Every Mom || These two sites are what I need for a daily dose of inspiration. While there isn't necessarily a new blog post that sparks my interest every day, for the most part I really enjoying reading the career profiles on both sites and feel instantly motivated. Whether I'm searching for my next show to binge watch or my next read - these two sites are daily fixtures for me. 
What do you like to read to stay in the know?

  5. I like to read SmartHer news... it's non-biased, quick, concise and just what you need to know for the day. :) I honestly mostly read it on instagram, but there is a website I will check too.

  8. I swear by the Skimm, it is just fantastic and even better than the Wall Street Journal front page snippets to me. I still try to read a couple pages of the actual newspaper, but it's so hard to find time to do that. I ahve to start reading the rest of these, thanks for sharing lady!

  18. I’ve actually never heard of any of these sources, so I appreciate you sharing! I just usually go to the news app I have or Apple News, but I’ll have to look into them. Skimm sounds great. I love that it’s condensed in a way that’s easy to understand. I hate having to read through a bunch of unnecessary fluff, lol! I hope you’re having a great week, beauty!

    Xo,

  22. I totally had to pop back over to tell you in case you didn't see....The SKIMM actually has a podcast starting on Monday!! I don't know why for some reason the news is easier for me to listen to than to read. I did start receiving the Morning Brew this week too...thanks so much for sharing all this!
