Freedom in release

January 18 2021

What happens when you let go, ease off the gas, stop trying to control the outcome? Where does the creativity live — in the process or in the result? Sometimes the answers are sitting in the grip: The moment we release, we find what we’re looking for. What can you let go of today?


Practice not perfect

January 07 2021

Showing up requires a level of greatness. You may not want to, you may be busy, you may tell yourself you’re not capable — but your effort, your trying, your beginning… Start. That’s where the magic happens. It’s not the perfection. It’s not even the win. What do you gain in the doing? How do […]


Pick your word

December 27 2020

It’s been a heck of a year and with a few days left, I want to share a ritual of mine: Choose a word, a theme you’d like to set for for the year to come. (This year my word was “Courage,” and boy, did I need it.) For 2021, I’m choosing “Joy.” I don’t […]


Follow your joy

December 16 2020

2020 has been rough. What can help you forge ahead and start 2021 fresh? Notice your joy — and follow it. Find places that bring smiles. Recognize moments that offer lightness and reprieve.

Do you need 100 fans or 1,000? Maybe you need a million. First you must identify your purpose. Are you trying to create a product, a business, a community, a movement? Then, decide your method. Thousands of conversions may not be necessary. Remember your “why.”

Are your friends ready to evolve with you?

November 23 2020

Different experiences demand different strengths, and different phases of life bring different challenges. What areas of your life do you refuse to compromise? Set non-negotiables and make moves accordingly. Then, trust yourself enough to know that if it doesn’t feel right, you will go. Confidence grows from clarity.


What can you celebrate?

November 16 2020

Instead of waiting for an occasion or holiday, find something to celebrate. Make an occasion out of nothing. When you approach life from a place of celebration, the wins become easier to spot. Tell me what you celebrate today.


Dealing with fear

November 10 2020

Fear stops relationships from growing, businesses from booming, and projects from shipping. But to deal with fear — to dance with it — you have to first recognize the role it plays in your creative process. Fear is natural. It’s not going anywhere. It’s much better to learn to see it and confront it so […]


A Coaching Question

November 02 2020

Write down 6 words you’d use to describe yourself. Now take a good, hard look at the words you’ve listed. Is this who you want to be? The way we see ourselves directly impacts the decisions we make on a daily basis. Sometimes an adjustment in perspective needs to take place before change can occur. […]
