Master the Art of Letting Go [Video]

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted and that’s because it’s been quite the undertaking moving my entire life across the country. A year ago my husband, two golden retrievers, and I left California to relocate to the mountains of Western North Carolina. We’ve been busy this past year getting settled into our new home and starting our lives here. I’m finally back to work and I am excited to announce… Read More »Master the Art of Letting Go [Video]

Ignoring is Not the Same as Letting Go

Distracting yourself is not the same as letting go. Trying not to think about something is not the same as letting it go. Pretending something doesn’t matter is not the same as letting it go. There’s a difference between Not Focusing on something and Letting it Go. If you truly want to be free of something… If you really want to be able to move on… You must relinquish control,… Read More »Ignoring is Not the Same as Letting Go

Following Inspiration for 3 Months, 6 States, and 2600 Miles

On June 22nd, my husband, our two golden retrievers, and I left the only place we’ve ever called home and drove cross-country to a new life. We did not have a home. What we had was a dream; an inspired idea to relocate from Southern California to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. Three months later we couldn’t feel more at home. Despite leaving everything and everyone we knew, just… Read More »Following Inspiration for 3 Months, 6 States, and 2600 Miles

Unshakable

The closer we get to our inspired cross-country move, the more opportunities arise to be convinced we’re making a huge mistake. Yet despite it all, I’m happy to say I’m not falling victim to any of them. There was a time I would have allowed this to create doubt. But not now. Despite any reaction I receive from friends, colleagues, acquaintances, and even strangers, to our news of moving from… Read More »Unshakable

Universal Validation

Following inspiration is all about trust. We pay attention to inspired ideas, take action on those ideas, and trust things will work out for the best. And they usually do. Still, living and working inspired can feel risky at times, because very often we don’t know where the inspired path is leading us. We trust if we take one inspired step at a time, we’ll be led on a journey… Read More »Universal Validation

Mastery and Working Inspired

I was talking with a friend the other day about following inspiration in business, and she shared something I hadn’t considered before. She insisted that in order to follow inspiration in business, you must first achieve mastery. As we walked and talked, I contemplated this idea. Can anyone follow inspired ideas in business, or is it a concept that’s reserved for the experienced? Do you really need to have mastered… Read More »Mastery and Working Inspired

Are You Working Inspired? [Video]

One sure way to know whether you’re going through the motions in your business, or truly following an inspired path, is by evaluating the emotional connection. 1. Do you feel passion for what you’re doing? 2. Does it make you feel good when you’re doing it? 3. Does it make an impact with other people? Can you answer Yes to all three questions? You may not love the work you do 100%… Read More »Are You Working Inspired? [Video]

Teachers: Who Inspired You? [Video]

This morning I was contemplating the teachers that have inspired me over the years. As I thought back, I was somewhat surprised to realize the ones that came to mind had all inspired my creative spirit. I’ve always seen myself as an intellectual. I’m analytical not creative. Yes, I enjoy creating, but I never saw it as my driving force. That all changed this morning. Perhaps these teachers saw something… Read More »Teachers: Who Inspired You? [Video]
