Navigating Challenging Times

The most challenging time to let go and trust is when you feel you have no control over what’s happening. And that most certainly describes the times we find ourselves in. Not only have we lost a sense of control, we’ve given up many of the freedoms we take for granted. Going to work, out to dinner, shopping, to the gym, even hiking. Getting a haircut, spending time with friends… Read More »Navigating Challenging Times

It’s Tough to Let Go & Trust Right Now

I’ll be the first to admit it’s tough to Let Go & Trust right now.  There is so much out of our control. It’s a scary time. My friend Tetyana Azarova and I just completed an online course based on her PhD dissertation that explored the role of Inspiration during times of personal challenge or crisis.  In the hope this course might be helpful during this challenging time, I’m offering it… Read More »It’s Tough to Let Go & Trust Right Now

The Magic of Working Inspired: A True Story

I love tangible examples of living and working inspired. It solidifies that following inspiration is more than just a nice idea, it’s a productive and viable way to live and work. It leads to collaborations and programs that probably wouldn’t have happened otherwise. And, it makes marketing easy, exciting, and more fruitful. Toward that end I wanted to share a story about something that began unfolding last October, and as… Read More »The Magic of Working Inspired: A True Story

The Importance of Letting Go in Business

I know I talk a lot about letting go of attachment, and learning to go with the flow, in your life. But over the past couple of weeks I’ve been reminded how important it is to also be able to let go in your business. How crucial it is, for your own sanity, to not become attached to inspired ideas, or really any aspect of your business. The text message… Read More »The Importance of Letting Go in Business

Life’s Curve Balls

I woke up last Wednesday morning to a text message. It was from my sister in California. Dad had fallen and broken his hip. He was in the hospital and heading into surgery later that day. My immediate thought was I needed to be there. And by 11pm that night I was, thanks to a same day flight from North Carolina to California, compliments of my brother and his accumulation… Read More »Life’s Curve Balls

Fessing Up: Sometimes Following Inspiration is Hard [Video]

Following inspiration is about listening to that little voice inside. I like to think of it as my higher self, steering me in the direction that will best serve me. Very often, that little voice is trying to tell me something I don’t want to hear. Or something that will require me to make a change, break a bad habit, or do something I know is good for me but… Read More »Fessing Up: Sometimes Following Inspiration is Hard [Video]

Following Inspiration Full Circle

Even after 10 years, the inspired path continues to amaze me. This week, I did a promotion for my book, The Following Inspiration Experiment, at a sunset yoga class at Jump Off Rock, here in Western North Carolina. The promotion was not something I sought out, or dreamt up. Rather, my friend who teaches the class, and who had read the book, offered to promote it to the class. I… Read More »Following Inspiration Full Circle

Happiness is a Choice

“Happiness is a choice. Choose happiness.” Those were the words my yoga teacher, and good friend, ended class with the other evening. They’re simple words, and they’re so true. Yet, far too often, we forget it is actually a choice. We allow ourselves to get mired down in negativity. We let things upset us that really aren’t worth the energy. And then we spread that negativity in an effort to… Read More »Happiness is a Choice
