Being Self-Made is a Myth [Creative Freedom S4E8]

This is the last segment on aspects of underearning, but I'm coming at it a different way. Forbes just launched their list of 2018's richest self-made women. I get where they're coming from, but the truth is that none of us is self-made. None of us just spontaneously appeared from the ether. Someone, somewhere had a […]

Why a hiatus might be good for your creative business

No sooner had I finished my lunch when the phone rang. It was my oldest. "Hey, are you okay?" "Not really, Mom. Aunt Dian died." Less than an hour later, I was on the road to Michigan. 9 hours later, I'm crashing at my ex-husband's house for the night. That meant I wasn't able to […]

How Winning The Lottery Changed My Life (It's Not What You Think)

"You can't win if you don't play." Mom used this sentence to justify a lot of behavior when I was a kid: learning to ride a bike, auditioning for plays, joining the cross country team (I took 11th place in the city meet). And yes, mom played the lottery. She had a winning streak where, with […]

Every Hero Needs A Theme Song Part 7

Uncommon. Enthusiasm. "Brave" was the theme for 2012 and in 2013, I chose to "Inspire". This year was about "Divine Alignment" - and there was a lot of re-alignment happening. Every year for half a decade now, I've intentionally chosen a "theme" and a "theme song" to set the tone for my year - both personally and […]

Humanity & Divinity

I've been wanting to write a post for a very long time about a concept I dubbed "the two I's". Inasmuch as we have two eyes through which we see the world, there are two "I's" through which we see the world: our divine self and our human self. You can try to dodge them, but […]
