Let's dive in: if you want to make those big ideas of yours happen, learning the art of following through on your big ideas is essential!

In this episode, I'm breaking things down into the basics that you need to get going and raise your hand and say yes to the big things keeping you up at night! 

Want a cheat sheet? Here you go:

Your 5 Follow Through Guiding Principles:

1. Talk is cheap if it's not backed up by action. 
2. Any action counts. 
3. You're never going to have things completely figured out. Learn to embrace the "I don't know" and move forward anyway. 
4. You know more than you realize. Go deeper. 
5. It's up to you to find a force stronger than your fear. 

And what to do about it:

1. Make a list of all those things you say you wanna do. 
2. Star the 1-2 that feel like the most exciting. 
3. Pause to consider the following: How would it feel to
 a. never get around to making it happen?
 b. see someone else doing it?
4. If you're still in, figure out the Start, commit to taking that step, and then DO IT. 
5. Start taking really good care of yourself. 

Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

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.

I'm back this week with the second half of my interview with Yulia Van Doren of Goldirocks. In this episode, we pick up where we left off: Yulia's home from Tucson and has $4K worth of crystals in her car...then what? The rest of the story might surprise you.

In this episode, you'll hear about how perfectionism almost stopped Yulia from ever making Goldirocks real, how life stepped in once again to shake things up, and how the loss of the biggest opportunity of Yulia's operatic career led to her being able to write her book, collaborate with Anthropologie, and partner with Herbivore! (You'll also hear about how these partnerships came into her life magically.)

I also asked her to give us a little lesson in Crystal Healing 101 and if you stay 'til the end, you'll also hear my own hard-to-believe-except-it-happened crystal story!

Enjoy, enjoy!

How did a professional Opera singer become the internet's favorite crystal seller? Is that kind of leap even possible? YES! It is, and this week you're going to hear (the first half!) of the story in my interview with Yulia Van Doren, founder of Goldirocks.

In our conversation, you'll hear about how Yulia went from successful-but-not-super-happy opera singer to being handed a big ol' stack of unexpected life changes to blowing up the internet with her gorgeous crystals. Except. We all know that paths like this are never as smooth as Instagram makes them seem, and this is especially true in Yulia's case. 

She shares how she *really* got started, what happened when she finally started following her inner knowings, and how she ended up in Arizona with $4,000 worth of crystals in her trunk. 

You are going to love this conversation! Enjoy, enjoy, and stay tuned for the conclusion next week!

Ah, social media! It's where we all love to connect and get inspired and show our work and the thing that's usually the cause of our comparison syndrome, overwhelm, and lack of fresh ideas.

So how do you deal? This week, I'm talking with Instagram expert and social media strategist Jaimie Myers about just that. 

We cover what you want to pay attention to instead of the numbers, how to build relationships, and how to move beyond the picture perfect feeds you see everywhere.

We also talk about the strategies you might want to stay away from (and I share my own story of a day when I tried something that turned out to be super high on the ick factor) and how to get started if you're new at social media and/or overwhelmed by it all. 

Oh! And you'll also hear Jaimie's top Instagram do's and don'ts - they're so good!

So many of us are striving for something bigger in our lives and creative work. We want to find success doing something that makes us come alive *and* that serves the world. (No pressure, right?)

And, it's so easy to fall prey to watching what everyone else is doing and wanting a piece of their picture instead of focusing on our own. (You aren't alone. We all do it.)

This week, I'm talking about how I think so many of us are focusing on the wrong thing in our creative longings and where you can look instead. My way feels a lot more fun and easy, so what's there to lose?

Oh! And the doubt. I'll also share my new favorite way for dealing with those inevitable doubts that show up in every moment!
