Are you waiting to have the Next Great Idea to get moving on your creative dreams? Are you finding yourself trapped in the either/or when you really want to live in the shades of grey in between? Are you wondering if you're *really* ready to step into your RYHSY life? Then this episode is for you. 

I break down: 
+ how I let go of being held back by the fears of failure, success, and disruption
+ what saying yes really looks like
+ my own story of saying yes that led me to starting this podcast over four years ago (!!) - seriously, it all started with my saying a single sentence out loud 
+ a different story of a time when I didn't say yes and someone else made my idea real
+ why inertia is the biggest enemy around to your creative work (and how the Inner Circle will help you move beyond that!) 

...and so much more! Also, if you're wondering if the Inner Circle is right for you (applications close Friday), have a listen - this should help you know!

Ep. 211: Are you the "right" kind of creative? (Oh, you KNOW I have thoughts!)

All episodes

Ever wonder if you're the "right" kind of creative or if you're doing your creative endeavors the way you should? 

Have you ever called yourself "not creative" just because you aren't a visual artist or a maker? Have you ever looked around at what everyone else is doing with their work and thought that they must surely know something you don't?

If you answered yes to any of the above, you are not alone! This week, I'm diving into the question of what it means to do creativity the "right" way - you KNOW I have thoughts - as well as what we all can learn from my experience being an imperfect podcaster, what I learned from a business planning class with Jenn Lee, and how what a 7th grade art teacher said stuck with me for nearly 20 years. 

Oh! And if you're wondering if the Inner Circle might be a good fit for you, I've got you covered there as well - applications open until 9/21!

Ep. 210: The Sneaky Side of Fear

Fear. It's real and sometimes it's loud. But what about those times it's *not* so loud? And what about those times that fear is in control of our actions and we don't even realize it?

That's what I'm talking about this week - all those sneaky ways fear shows up and holds us back from making the moves we really want to be making in our lives and in our work. If you consistently find yourself overwhelmed or taking on too much or lost in research or just wishing you had more time, this episode is for you!

You'll also get to hear from RYHSY Inner Circle alum Tammi Salas about her experience in the program and what she took away from our year together! It's such good stuff!

Ep. 209: There is nothing wrong with you. (But let's talk about why you might think there is.)

Do you ever find yourself wondering any of these: 

+ Why can't I create (or be as confident) as everyone I see online? 

+ Why can't I just stay off social media? 

+ Why am I so tired? 

+ Why do I have so many doubts?

Guess what? YOU ARE NOT ALONE. And also: there is nothing wrong with you. Promise. 

This week, I'm breaking down some of the most common questions I hear from people about their creative habits and where they think they need to change and am diving into why these questions consistently come up as well as some new ways you can approach them when they do.

There are no formulas for success. There are no absolute right answers. And I promise you this: someone else is asking themselves those very things you're asking yourself right now. 

You're doing great. Keep going.

What do moving to San Francisco (without my boyfriend at the time), coming off of maternity leave, and quitting drinking have in common? They were all major turning points in my life.

In this week's episode, I'm taking you behind the scenes of these three huge transitions in my life and sharing everything I've learned in the process of making my way through them, including how I now face those "things have to change!" whispers now.

If you're in the midst of a transition, this episode is for you. If you're about to be in the midst of a transition, this episode is for you. And if you too have survived challenging transitions in your life, I've got you covered as well. Big BIG love.

I am thrilled to be kicking Season 5 (!!) off with a return appearance from my friend Camille T. Dungy

In this episode, Camille and I take a real-talk look at what happens behind the scenes of the life of a successful poet, author, speaker, and teacher and how she maintains success and keeps her creative train on the tracks. 

We also talk about self-care, how to find/ask for/get help, the difference between doing and promoting the work, and how to navigate the tension between wanting success yesterday and finding the patience to let your ideas simmer. 

I loved this conversation and suspect you will too...

Have you ever found yourself saying something out loud that is self-deprecating and not actually true? If so, this episode is for you.

This week, I'm diving into three specific stories I've told throughout my life (one very recently!) and looking at what impact telling them has had on what I believe about myself. The short version is that the things we say out loud tend to become true. The other spoiler is that we can shift this ourselves. 

If you're ready to stand in your own power and own the good work that you do in this world (or that you're ready to do), have a listen. You are not alone. And you are doing great.

Ep. 203: On Becoming a Morning Person, aka How to Change a Habit (and Change your Life)

All episodes

Can you slowly and gradually shift a habit or do you have to go all in? Is it possible to actually change something about yourself that you've believed to be true your whole life? How do you know when a change is necessary or when it's antithesis to the person you really are? And, then, if you are ready to try out the change, where do you even start?

These are just a few of the questions that come up around habit change and this week, I'm diving into my own shift in my habit around waking up in the morning. Yes, hand raisers, you heard that right: I am (on purpose!) waking up every morning at 6 am (begrudgingly) and am working on becoming a morning person. 

Listen in to find out how I'm approaching it, how it's going, and what my journey has to do with those life and creative habits that you're ready to shift. Because you know this is about so much more than what time your alarm goes off in the morning!
