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!

I was so excited to finally get to talk with De'Ana Fierce, founder of The Modeling Standard, for this week's episode! We covered making leaps, finding confidence, and why respect is so critical.

+ Why it's okay to want more for your life and creative work.

Can you use your art as resistance, as a form of activism, or as a catalyst for social change? Yes, you can, and this week, I'm talking with Susan Celia Swan about how to do just that. 

Susan is the Executive Director of V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. We had such an amazing conversation about what creative women can do to activate change in their local communities and on a global scale. 

We also talked about what to do if you want to serve but aren't sure how to get started, the big impact tiny moves can create, and how to deal with the imperfection that can rise up when YOU want to rise up.

This conversation is important and powerful. We've all got big work to do. No pressure, hand raisers! And let's go.

Welcome to the beginning of a new 3-part series I'm doing for the rest of February about how you can start approaching your big creative ideas from a different perspective. 

This week, I'm kicking things off with a new take on Idea Development and how you can start bringing some of those gorgeous ideas of yours out of hiding and into the world! 

This isn't about learning the latest time management hacks or piling more onto your already-overcrowded plate. Because there is a better way out there for you to turn your big, creative ideas into a big, creative reality. But without all the pressure of that, of course. *wink*
