It was a winter year,
a planting of seeds in the darkness year,
pacing the well-worn paths of my heart.
Nurturing the tender new shoots.
Weeding the beliefs that would choke their growth.
Trusting the garden would bloom again.
More spectacular and vibrant,
than I had ever known.
It was a winter year,
Nowhere is it easier to see the power of creation that we hold than in our businesses. It’s a chance to design your life. It’s a chance to define who you are. It’s a chance to explore alternatives, opportunities and make new decisions when you don’t love the results you’re getting.Read More
Last week I spent over 12 hours driving (16 + hours over 3 days sitting in the car). My sister and I got REALLY lost. Not in the that-was-a-fun-detour kinda way but in the it’s-10PM-and-where-the-hell-are-we kinda way. We ended up 1/2 way to Sudbury before we pulled over and conceded we were fo’ sure NOT where we were supposed to be.
Which got me thinking. . .Read More
It’s been 3 weeks since my last blog, which kinda feels like walking up to a confessional booth and saying it’s been 3 weeks since my last confession. Or so I imagine because I’m not Catholic. I also took a huge break from posting content on social media.
I wish I could say that I’ve been quiet because I’ve been on vacation on some gorgeous tropical beach. That I’m writing to you now with sand between my toes.
I felt completely drained. Exhausted. Uninspired. I had NOTHING to say (which never happens). Until it did, 3 weeks ago. Does this ever happen to you?Read More
My love/ hate relationship with Facebook Groups.
We all know that participating in Facebook groups can be great for business. Showing up and adding value, demonstrating your knowledge, supporting and encouraging fellow entrepreneurs, soaking up the wisdom from people in different fields.
When it all goes well. . .it’s a powerful resource, a way to stay connected, discover people doing seriously cool shit, get fresh perspectives and serve without an agenda.
At one point I belonged to 100+ Facebook groups and I’ve run a couple as well (admittedly they were very small and for a very specific purpose).
Here’s what I’ve learned about myself navigating the ever-changing landscape of Facebook groups as an entrepreneur.Read More
PREFACE: Communication has been a BIG theme for me this week. I really can’t emphasize that last sentence enough. Big. Huge. In. My. Face. Theme. (Also forgive me for using the tired clichés “finding your voice” and “speaking your truth” in this post. I’m fired up and they get my point across).Read More
We’ve all heard of the old cliché “getting out of your own way”. In other words, the #1 thing holding you back from achieving what you want - it’s you. True in most things I think. But learning how exactly you’re holding yourself back and WTF to do about it? That’s the hard part.Read More
Your experience of resistance is intensely personal and as intimate as the voice in your head. What if you could opt out, choose your way past it? Would you? Could you? That’s what this week’s blog post is all about.Read More
You are a radical dreamer, a sacred rebel and you want to make possible what others say can't be.
Where in your life and business are you being told it has to be done a certain way? That success will only follow if you "xyz"?
And yet, in the face of this advice, there's that tug of intuition, that quiet whisper saying, "No. I don't believe it." It doesn't feel right. There HAS to be another way to reach my goal.Read More
