Leap, and the Net Will Appear: A spontaneous interview with Kim The Quitter

A pleasant surprise of an email prompted this interview with friend and previous client of mine, Kim; I’ll call her, Kim The Quitter. In our time working together, Kim made drastic changes in her life that we discuss here in this episode. We often see quitting as such a shameful action, and yet you can hear in Kim’s voice the...

What I’ve Learned from 1,000 Daily Posts

In November 2013, I started this thing, this blog. I knew little where it was headed or how to garner traffic, I just wanted to write. After being away from writing for over a year (the time that it took to publish my book), I missed telling stories. Now, almost three years later, I’ve written nearly every damn day. My... Read More

Make It Count

I can never get enough of any zero to hero story, and my latest intrigue is Casey Neistat, filmaker, youtube vlogger, jetsetter, adventurer. According to his wikipedia page,┬áhe was living in a trailer park with his family before taking the leap and moving to NYC, where he’d bus tables and cook before his early beginnings making art installations (2001).

No diaper changes, but definitely restless nights, anxious dreams, temper tantrums, and unshakable vulnerability. Totally the same thing, yeah? Alright, give me three years and I’ll reassess! Right now, two kittens suffice;) In the meantime, this analogy has come up time... Read More

Podcast Start: I need your help!

One of the things holding me back from beginning my new podcast is something so itsy bitsy silly, it’s making me crazy: the name. For a while I was blaming it on the content, but of course it will be much like the blog: all things personal development, because that’s my jam (whether it’s a crowded airwave or not). Then...

I’ll Have What She’s Having!

kat hurley, prospect park, nature, walk
My favorite compliment I often get is that I have great energy. It’s just vague enough that I don’t feel terribly awkward receiving it — thank you! It only dawned on me today though that that energy was not God-given, per se. It was cultivated over time. I love how Brendon Burchard uses the analogy of a power plant, which... Read More
