Ashley Nickels is a writer, quilter, and teacher (and overall badass) who is currently in the midst of her own reinvention. Ashley and I both gave up drinking around the same time and the parallels in our stories are amazing! #sobersisters

This week, we talk about reinvention, letting go of stories, what happens when you start tapping into a higher consciousness, and the parts of reinvention that you don't always hear when someone's on the other side looking back. And you'll get to hear the inside scoop about a few changes I'm making in my business as well! 

If you have a calling to make a change in your life (or are in the middle of one!), this episode is for you!

Artist, Illustrator, Writer, and Speaker Lisa Congdon is back this week to talk about something that most of us experience but few talk about out loud - anxiety and burnout - and what happens when your drive and ambition take over your life.

In this episode, Lisa shares her story of what happened when she realized she had no choice but to make a change and and how she's made her way back to herself. We also talk about tools you can use to stay centered in your own life and creative work, whether you're an experienced creative or just getting started!

We also cover common pitfalls of creatives including how to balance your creative work with the demands of your life, how to bring a personal touch to your work, and how to introduce vulnerability into what you're creating.

Our conversation was SO GOOD and will leave you ready to dive in and get to work!

One of my most popular guests ever, Lacy Young, is back for her third RYHSY appearance! Lacy is a meditation teacher and retreat leader and this week, we're talking about how to start making shifts in your creative work and find your alignment.

This week's guest is April Miller McMurtry of The Moon is My Calendar. I've known April for a few years and was so excited to get to talk with her about her work around using the cycles of the moon to aid in creative work (and, let's be honest: life).

April has a keen understanding of how the waxes and wanes of the moon can reflect the ebbs and flows of our energy on a day-to-day basis and takes the perspective that there is no one-size-fits-all formula for creative success (bingo!).

If you've ever wondered about the moon and what it all means to your life, listen in. Even if you're skeptical (I was too!), this episode will help you walk away with more grace for yourself and your natural habits and some techniques to help you move forward in embracing them as you keep on raising your hand and saying yes!

Because it will. And that doesn't mean you should or have to give up on yourself! 

Enjoy, enjoy!

I was thrilled to get to talk with Sasha Tozzi for this week's episode! We talk about recovery and anxiety - two topics I'm becoming more and more interested in. 

We also talk about how you can get over your fear of what other people are going to think about choices you make, how it feels to go public with a big life change, and how you can start building up your creative confidence and resilience. 

If you have life changes that you want to make that feel scary, this episode is for you! Enjoy!

Exciting episode alert! I'm talking with RYHSY veteran Erin Cassidy all about taking risks...as we go behind the scenes of the debut of our new podcast How to be Remarkable

In this episode, we dive deep into talk of creative risk, especially when it goes against the way you'd normally do things. Are you dreaming of starting a podcast but don't know how to balance that with your introverted tendencies? Listen in - cuz Erin has some great thoughts on that!

I was also excited to have this conversation right at the beginning of our new endeavor as it's easy to forget about the nervous + excited feeling of projects once you've gotten distance between yourself and the starting line. 

Enjoy, enjoy and we'd love for you to also check out the new podcast - either online or on iTunes
