The Year of Magical Dreaming

Game On!

I’ve been on such a huge podcast kick lately. I have School of Greatness, Tim Ferriss, James Altucher, The Unmistakable Creative, and more, all on rotation. As opposed to audiobooks, I get so much out of 45 min I can often skip the 8-hour book. Although I have been collecting a mega list of must reads after repeatedly hearing questions... Read More

The Hangover

You’da thunk it was my first rodeo! Why must we learn the same lesson over and over again? The definition of insanity: Doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results. Well, then it appears I’ve been insane for quite some time. How many times have I said, “I’m never drinking again!”? Yesterday was filled with a lot of regret... Read More

You’re Already There

I’m off to Bmore for bachelorette shenanigans. Lord knows what I’ll feel like tomorrow, but today I’m taking it back to ’96 with my sisters from 4 different misters. It’s what #shitshows are made of, I tell ya;) I loved this fb post by Liz G, so I thought I’d borrow her thoughts as my blog today, as they most... Read More

Sucks To Be You (vlog)

Why does it feel better when people validate our suckage? “Awe man, that sucks.” … Thanks? I guess. I fell down the feeling-sorry-for-myself-hole this morning. Everything seemed an inconvenience: sweeping again, after sweeping late last night, litter box duties (this is why I didn’t want TWO!), laundry is engulfing us because the littlest one hasn’t quite sorted out the whole...

Balance: It’s not a destination

balance
Work/life balance in my house is a constant discussion. Let’s just say, like everything else, it’s a practice. Yes, as entrepreneurs, we have all this freedom in our day–which is amazing–but what that often means is that computers are still open at midnight, which is not cool. We gotta walk the talk, right? This has come up several times in... Read More

Everything is Spiritual

I had heard of Rob Bell before. He was this cool pastor guy whose message of love was reaching beyond the confines of christianity. Oprah couldn’t say enough good things. But It wasn’t until recently when I listened to the School of Greatness podcast that I learned the reason why Rob Bell is so successful: It’s simple. He doesn’t talk... Read More

Tough it Out Like a Toddler

toddler-hoodie-rex
In improv class, my instructor, Jen, is constantly reminding us to “want it like a toddler.” Toddlers, by nature, don’t give up. First they whine, then they cry, then they kick and scream, some even do as they damn please regardless of “NO.” Relentless, right? As we grow up though, we lose that persistence, especially in our craft. We get... Read More
