+ how she balances long and short term projects and focuses in her creative work
+ how she sets (and maintains) boundaries
+ how she keeps her eye on her current projects rather than getting easily distracted by new ideas

Courage. We all could use a little more of it, but not having it might be holding us back from doing the thing that will help us get it! Enter: Kate Swoboda and her new book The Courage Habit (which I'm pretty sure was written for us!).

In her new book and in this conversation, Kate helps unpack the different habits associated with courage and how we can step past our fear to get out into the world and follow through on all those things we *say* we want to do!

Kate also gives permission to let go of working so hard and needing to be everything to everyone (amen and hallelujah!) and offers tips for how to start stepping out of your old stories into the things that are going to make you the most proud of yourself. 

This conversation and this work is so important. Enjoy!

Confession time! I haven't been doing the things I say I want to do. Ahhh! So, here I am, going solo on the show to tell you all about it. 

Formulas are hard to argue with. Patterns and habits are challenging to break. And yet (!) most of us know that we want more for our creative work and our lives and businesses than we're letting ourselves have. This week, I'm bringing you behind the scenes of my own recent revelation about what was standing in my way of going all in on my big ideas and how I'm (hoping to!) shift my tide (there's webinar for that). 

Join me. The waters are lovely.

Today I'm talking about how to deal with navigating change, and this episode is auto-biographical as I'm right in the midst of making some huge changes around my home life (hello, let's move states!). 

I'll take you through the steps I'm using right now as I gingerly tread through this shift and try to stay sane in the process. 

Want the cliff notes? Here are my 8 steps:

1. Remember why you want it. 
2. Remember that you want it.
3. Let go of having answers that will appease other people's anxieties.
4. But create external accountability if that helps. 
5. Self-care like whoa.
6. Sleep.
7. Say when it's hard. 
8. Remember that you'll be so grateful for this experience someday. 

Change is important, and it's hard. And we're all in it together.

I was so excited to get to interview Leah Vernon of Beauty and the Muse for this week's episode! 

Leah and I covered SO MUCH in this conversation, including:
+ what graduate school taught her about bouncing back from rejection
+ how to be unapologetically yourself
+ how to find your people and the right kind of support
+ how to develop a writing habit
+ the acceptance of anger
+ how to let go of what other people care and think

Oh, yes. Profound things happen when you let go of the need to keep other people comfortable at the detriment of yourself. Amen and hallelujah! 

Enjoy, enjoy!
