FINALLY! The iPhone 6 News You’ve Been Waiting for…
We’ve waited and we’ve waited and we’ve Googled “iPhone 6 updates” and we (if you’re like the editor typing this out right now) have bitten the bullet and said oh, forget waiting for that darn iPhone 6 announcement, I’m just going to upgrade to the 5s and be totally fine with it. But, guys, it’s finally here. Apple has reportedly scheduled a media event for Tuesday September 9 and you know what that means, folks: It’s iPhone 6 reveal time.
September may be the back to school signal for all of you buying color-coordinated binders and rulers for your kiddies (and back to, um, fall shopping for the rest of us), but Apple-holics know that big announcements come before the leaves start to change. Apple has not confirmed this news but we may or may not have sent a “cancel all my meetings!” email to our coworkers with that date dibbed. A September 9 reveal would be in line with suspicions of an October release date, even if rumors about the model with the bigger screen getting delayed are true.
Forgot what the iPhone 6 has in store for us? Check out the below roundup of rumors and exciting preview videos that will whet your appetite. No drooling though, unless you have a Lifeproof case on that newly bought (shh, don’t remind me) 5s.
– The iPhone 6 will actually be TWO phones and nine other rumors we’re sinking our teeth into.
– Here’s what happens when you stab the (supposed) iPhone 6 screen.
– It will feature the only camera you’ll ever need.
– Your next phone will be your last destination for your health and fitness data if Apple has anything to do with it.
-It’s ready to get cozy in your smart home, too!
This is one Apple rumor that we’ve known was going to turn into a reality faster than you can say “Craig Federighi hair selfie” but still, it’s good to have a date to plan for. WWDC 2015 just seemed so far away…

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
