Don't Miss This One Short Life of Yours

(0) Comments | Posted September 1, 2015 | 3:34 PM

Please. I know it's hard to live this life.

I know there are times that it hurts so much you think you might not make it through another day. When you're certain that nothing will ever change or go your way. When your body is tired and your soul is...

Pissing People Off Is Part of the Work Sometimes

(0) Comments | Posted August 28, 2015 | 11:48 AM

I'm going to piss you off.

You or someone else... it's going to happen.

All because I'm going to touch on the things that make people feel unsettled and unsteady, and it's going to make someone mad. They may unsubscribe, unlike my social media pages, and tell the people around...

Sometimes Healing Is Hard

(0) Comments | Posted August 24, 2015 | 6:12 PM

It was a Saturday afternoon and I was sitting on his couch with my eyes closed, sobbing harder than I had in months. I had stopped breathing, resisting the next step of the process with every cell in my body. I could literally feel every inch of my being saying...

It's Not About You, and That's Exactly Why It's About You

(0) Comments | Posted August 20, 2015 | 3:22 PM

Service-oriented and purpose-driven entrepreneurs often run into the issue of "being in the public eye." We just want to change the world, leave our mark, and make the difference we know we were born to make. We don't necessarily care about recognition and praise and awards. Sometimes, sure. But mostly,...

You Belong Simply Because You're Here

(0) Comments | Posted August 12, 2015 | 6:06 PM

You're not supposed to belong.

That's not the point of you.

You'd be surprised how many people resonate with the statement, "I don't belong in this world." I know it floored me when I first realized I wasn't the only one.

I was sitting in a large room with almost...

Today I'm Taking a Stand for Me and You, For All of Us

(0) Comments | Posted July 21, 2015 | 10:42 AM

For as long as I can remember, I've chosen to walk into the darkness. To feel all there is to feel in the shadows of this life. I've stuck my hand into the fire, just to feel it burn. Sank myself into a depression that left me a shell of...

When Feedback Is Irrelevant

(0) Comments | Posted July 9, 2015 | 1:40 PM

Over the last decade of designing websites and working with clients around creating products and services and business around their passions, I've noticed a common trend. We'll work through a branding brief, come up with some strategies to implement, or present a website that's designed to support their goals.

Choose to Try, Try Again

(0) Comments | Posted July 8, 2015 | 12:58 PM

"Have enough courage to trust love one more time, and always one more time."

I'm obsessed with this quote from Maya Angelou. Always one more time. It's become my mantra, a way of showing up in this world and my relationships. A simple phrase that resonates within every single cell.

This Message Is a Choice Point

(0) Comments | Posted June 30, 2015 | 4:01 PM

Life is too short to waste being afraid, and far too fragile to leave room for wonder.

When we're at the end of the line and there's nothing left to do but wait for our last breath, we're not going to fondly remember the moments where we held back and...

Create a Safe Space for Yourself

(0) Comments | Posted June 24, 2015 | 9:52 AM

I was staring into the fire thinking about death, naturally, when he asked me one of the questions I had most dreaded until that night.

The question about whether or not I'd lost someone close me, or the one about what happened with my last relationship. Not many people know...

Why You Should Stop Talking Over Your Audience

(0) Comments | Posted June 22, 2015 | 1:54 PM

My plea today: Can we please stop writing off concepts and practices and beautiful opportunities for growing and changing simply because we've decided a word is overused?

"I cringe at the word purpose."
"I hate when people use the word vulnerable, ugh."
"I don't even want to say...

Life Is Happening Right Now -- Feel More Alive

(0) Comments | Posted June 17, 2015 | 2:11 PM

"I wouldn't put it past me to fling myself off the side of a mountain."

We were talking about hang gliding, in case you're wondering.

There's something I love about the things in this life that remind me how small and insignificant I am. That, in the grande scheme, I...

The Plight of the Multi-Passionate

(1) Comments | Posted June 12, 2015 | 4:04 PM

There are three clients I had conversations with, just from last week, that will think this post was inspired by our chat... because it's something I talk about and come up against so frequently.

When we set out to build a business around our passions, we think it's simply a...

How to Meditate Your Way

"Oh, here I am. I am home again."

This is the thought that always pops into my mind the moment I settle into my workouts. Whether I'm dragging myself into the gym and picking up the weights, lacing up my shoes and going for a run, or simply taking a...

Sad Stories and Good Stories Are One in the Same

(0) Comments | Posted June 3, 2015 | 10:38 AM

"Those are sad stories. And I also think the world could use some good stories. I don't think there will ever be enough (really)."

A friend sent this to me after I wrote about telling stories.

Here's a thing about me you would learn if we met in real life:...

You Have to Work for It

(0) Comments | Posted May 28, 2015 | 12:14 AM

If you want to make something happen, you have to work for it.

Sometimes that "work" is easier and less time consuming, and sometimes it takes everything you have. But either way, you've got to do it. Period.

I talk to people every single day who want to know the...

You Don't Always Have to Choose

(0) Comments | Posted May 26, 2015 | 11:51 AM

Sometimes I fall off the radar completely.

I become near impossible to reach by phone or text unless you've scheduled something. My social media accounts may continue to be updated, but I'm certainly not present. Instagram goes dark. Non-essential emails don't get answered. I just... step back.

In those moments...

I want to be bolder and braver with this one life of mine.

I want to be able to say that I told the people I love, just how much I love them. And that I loved them with the fullness and enormous capacity my heart has always had. With...

How to Create Your One-of-a-Kind Business Vision

(0) Comments | Posted May 11, 2015 | 6:42 PM

One of the biggest mistakes made when starting a business is modeling too closely, or flat out copying, whichever big name coach or business owner is already making money in your market.

We look at their success and think, "I just have to do what they're doing...

Deliver Results Creating Products and Services That Sell

(0) Comments | Posted May 1, 2015 | 10:16 AM

One of the top areas I see my clients struggling with is creating products and services that not only sell, but deliver amazing results for their audience. This happens because most business owners are trying to shoehorn their expertise into someone else's blueprint or template. Instead of really serving their...
