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 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

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

Learning to Let Go and Trust [Video]

I’ve completed video production for my newest online course, Master the Art of Letting Go and Following Inspiration. And, the edits on my latest book, The Following Inspiration Experiment, are back from my editor. That means now it’s time to put the online course together and post it online, and complete final production of my book.

Living Inspired Can Change Your Life

Five years ago today, Hope entered my life. I’ll be honest, five years ago life felt really hard. I was burned out in my business and wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My son was struggling with some pretty heavy issues. And I had just lost Maverick, my dog of nearly 13 years. If ever there was a time I needed Hope, it was then. So when my husband… Read More »Living Inspired Can Change Your Life

A 10-year journey concludes

Even though I officially launched my Living Inspired project in 2017, I actually began letting go and trusting in 2007—more than 10 years ago. In December 2009, I started an experiment. I decided to commit to following inspiration without concern for money, ego, pride, and all the other things that had driven me for years on my quest for success. And in 2011, I started my Following Inspiration blog, to… Read More »A 10-year journey concludes

Finding Inspiration When You’re Uninspired

One of my tribe members recently sent me the following questions. I, too, have struggled with feeling uninspired in the past, and I’m sure we’re not the only ones. So I wanted to answer her questions publicly. This is a longer post, because as I started writing I realized I had a lot to say on this topic. I hope you’ll bear with me. I believe it’s worth reading. What… Read More »Finding Inspiration When You’re Uninspired

Darn it, I’m Still Keeping Score!

  • Debbie 

I’ve been very inspired lately. Blogging daily and implementing inspired ideas on a regular basis. It feels good to be motivated again. Because quite honestly, up until a few months ago, that wasn’t the case. I was lost. Trying to figure out what was next. But as soon as l let go of my marketing business, clarity came rushing in. My new blog, Following Inspiration, was born. Or rather re-born,… Read More »Darn it, I’m Still Keeping Score!

Letting Go & Moving On

  • Debbie 

This week I made the decision to let go of my online marketing academy website. As has been the case so many times in my career, this decision had been coming for quite some time. I’m sure a few months from now, I will look back and ask myself why I waited so long. Because I typically hang on longer than I probably should. You see, even though my mantra… Read More »Letting Go & Moving On

Paradigm Shift

  • Debbie 

I was talking to a good friend last week. She shared that she’d recently had a paradigm shift. She’s in a similar place as I am… transitioning from solely focusing on a business to designing a more creative and fulfilling life. Like me, she’s found herself being pulled back into her old world on more than one occasion. Her words gave me a lot to think about. I realized I’ve been living in a very… Read More »Paradigm Shift
