Ep. 211: Are you the "right" kind of creative? (Oh, you KNOW I have thoughts!)

Ever wonder if you're the "right" kind of creative or if you're doing your creative endeavors the way you should? Have you ever called yourself "not creative" just because you aren't a visual artist or a maker? Have you ever looked around at what everyone else is doing with their work and thought that they must surely know something you don't? If you answered yes to any of the above, you are not alone! This week, I'm diving into the question of what it means to do creativity the "right"...


Ep. 210: The Sneaky Side of Fear

Fear. It's real and sometimes it's loud. But what about those times it's *not* so loud? And what about those times that fear is in control of our actions and we don't even realize it? That's what I'm talking about this week - all those sneaky ways fear shows up and holds us back from making the moves we really want to be making in our lives and in our work. If you consistently find yourself overwhelmed or taking on too much or lost in research or just wishing you had more time, this episode...

Guess what? YOU ARE NOT ALONE. And also: there is nothing wrong with you. Promise.

Ep. 204: Can Values Be Sexy? Yes. And Let's Talk about Changing Stories

Have you ever found yourself saying something out loud that is self-depricating and not actually true? If so, this episode is for you. This week, I'm diving into three specific stories I've told throughout my life (one very recently!) and looking at what impact telling them has had on what I believe about myself. The short version is that the things we say out loud tend to become true. The other spoiler is that we can shift this ourselves. If you're ready to stand in your own power and own...


Ep. 203: On Becoming a Morning Person, aka How to Change a Habit (and Change your Life)

Can you slowly and gradually shift a habit or do you have to go all in? Is it possible to actually change something about yourself that you've believed to be true your whole life? How do you know when a change is necessary or when it's antithesis to the person you really are? And, then, if you are ready to try out the change, where do you even start?

Ep. 200: The Power of a Moment

Episode 200. WHAT?!?! This week, I'm looking at the big picture (200 episodes!) as well as the individual moments that create a movement.
