Pre-P.S. This is part of a quick series breaking down how to answer the question, “So what now?” You can check out the first two posts here. — “Who on earth is this for?” This question about killed me until it didn’t. You see, I’m claustrophobic and any time I think about getting trapped in
Pre-P.S. If you missed yesterday’s post, I’m sharing a series this week helping you answer the question of “What now?” by sharing how I answered that question for myself when I needed to decide what type of offer I wanted to design next. If you’re in the process of determining what’s next for you right
I was texting my friend Marisa the other day, and at the end of our convo, her last text to me was, “What a difference a year can make, right?” It got me thinking about just how true that statement is for me. Our perspective about our accomplishments can easily get warped. Many of my
Below you’ll see words that demanded to fly out of my fingertips after journaling this morning, so I thought I’d share them with you today. Imperfections likely present. (Not so ironically, these words came freely after I did some work on healing my inner-perfectionist). Often, the root work we need to do is put in
The water turned purple, and everything dissolved. That’s what happened when I tried to make sweet potato gnocchi. After 45 minutes of baking, kneading, rolling, and cutting the dough into the perfect bite-sized pieces. I dumped the freshly formed gnocchi into the boiling water and watched them dissolve one by one. For the record, that’s
As business owners, we’re faced with uncertainty a lot. (Not to mention 2020 seems to be giving dose after dose of uncertainty in general). But as the owner of your business… You’re the one making all the decisions. You’re the one coming up with the next idea. You’re the one executing (oftentimes solo). Which means you’re
If you ask me, “What do you want for dinner?” my brain melts. It doesn’t work. However, if you ask me, “Do you want spaghetti or shrimp bowls?” I can function. My decision-making abilities return to me. Because clarity needs constraints. (So does creativity). When we give ourselves constraints, we expand. And yet, we often
What we’re taught to think: “To be successful I need to learn more, make more, do more.” A different way to think about about success: Success is a journey of unlearning and then piecing together the insights from what you’ve unlearned into a new way of existing in the world. Success can be experienced daily,
I’m writing from the couch next to the fireplace in our Whistler hotel as snow falls out the window. It’s peaceful and serene and probably the exact opposite of your inbox right now. Because it’s digital course launch season. The time of year when all your favorites in the online coaching/creative/marketing world start sharing their
Which is easier for you? Saying what you don’t want or saying what you want? If you’re like most people I know, saying what you want is infinitely harder than saying what you don’t want. Case in point, when your significant other asks, “What do you want for lunch?” Do you say, “I don’t know”
I hit the jackpot flying back to Austin last night. I not only had the extra roomy exit row, I had the extra roomy exit row all to myself. I was about to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight” as the flight intendant instructed, but instead, I whipped out my phone to write you
Consistency can be hard am I right? I’m great at doing some things consistently… like eating Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups. I eat two of those dark chocolate masterpieces a day. And as a tribute to my adulthood, I eat them before dinner. I’m not so great at being consistent with working out, remembering to switch my laundry
I was leaning over the counter eating artichoke hearts out of the can when my friend Kerason texted me mid-bite. She was asking if I knew what I was going to write yet since it’s 5:06 on Tuesday—the day I promised myself I’d send you love notes. I didn’t have a complete idea formulated yet,
The day my mom joined us in Italy happened to be the same day as Festa Di Asini—The Donkey Festival (yes, you read that right). A Donkey Derby seemed like the perfect way to help her fight jet lag, so we joined in on the fun.
Here’s the thing, the concept of racing donkeys around a small grassy track is hilarious because donkeys are notoriously stubborn. After all, we call them asses…
Patrick and I were in a conversation this morning and he said something brilliant. Which isn’t unusual by any means, but this one was especially brilliant because he articulated in 15 seconds what many consultants and freelancers spend significantly more time trying to figure out. (He’s been on a roll lately). We were talking about
Wednesday can often get a bad rap, it’s hump day after all. Smack dab in the middle of the week with no specialty of its ownーother than being right in the middle.I’m finding this Wednesday has been particularly middle-ish, so I thought I’d rename it Woo-Woo Wednesday and share some magic with you. Sound good? I thought so, too.
Hear me talk about managing my OCD successfully & what it took to get there.
How’s your booty feeling on this Tuesday? Sore? Tight and bootyfull? Sofa butt-ish? I can’t remember where I heard or read the term “sofa butt,” but I’ve been using it ad naseam since it entered my vocabulary. Sofa butt occurs when you sit on your a** for so long that it starts to shift around,
Stalling… This site had many a name before I decided to go with my name. My wallet wasn’t happy with my indecisiveness as I bought domain name after domain name, each time thinking I had landed on *the* idea. My man, a king of acting swiftly did not understand my hesitation. I had 2 logos
