Unmistakable: Why only is better than best with Srini Rao

Featured Video Play Icon
I’m such a fan of Srini Rao and his podcast Unmistakable Creative, so I was excited to flip the script on him, pick his brain, and discuss his new book, Unmistakable: Why only is better than best.  Since I discovered Unmistakable Creative last year, Srini has become a distant mentor of mine. He is incredibly transparent about his setbacks and... Read More

Are You Jealous?

Make-It-Count
When I saw Glennon Doyle Melton in NYC just a few months ago, she said something I had never quite put my finger on: “Envy is a terrific guide to passion.” It’s so true. I’ve never been jealous of a dentist, or an emergency room doctor, or even a high profile finance gal. Not ever. Sitting in the audience watching... Read More

How Bad Do You Want It?

Featured Video Play Icon
I talk to people all the time, both in personal training and in my coaching practice, who want a lot of very specific things/ie. changes in their lives, and yet aren’t willing to give up much in return. In the kindest way possible, I find a way to ask the ever thought provoking question: How’s that working out for you?... Read More

I talk about this often in my work with clients and even here on the blog: no change is lasting unless the environment has been set up to accept change. I quote Dr. Joe Dispenza on this topic all the time, from... Read More

I Suck At New Year’s Resolutions!

I can’t tell you how many people I’ve spoken to in the last few weeks who have all said, “I suck at New Year’s Resolutions!” So did they set one? Of course not. Why bother? Or if they did, could you imagine success with that attitude? I think not. I used to be one of those people. It was easier... Read More

Your Resolution Won’t Work Unless You Do This!

kat hurley, dreambomb, 2016, resolution
We’re mostly all talk, right? Little on the (consistent) action side. Me included. Some of us have gotten to the point where we don’t even say it out loud: our goals, our hopes, our resolutions. Save the embarrassment. I’ve been there. Most of us can will ourselves through January, but February becomes a whole new challenge because willpower is a... Read More

My Little Company that Could Not: A story on failing with grace

freeterrain
*the original sketches of Freeterrain.com, 2008 My favorite part about Spoken is that with it’s 4 min. cap on time short and perhaps (inappropriately labeled) “insignificant” stories can really get their legs. Tonight, I recorded a story about my little company that could not. I revisited the excitement, the audacity, the creativity, as well as the momentum, the purpose, the... Read More
