Tag: Think You're Too Old?

What my photo shoot taught me about pricing (it's not what you think!)

This week I had an AMAZING photo shoot that's been several months in the making. I knew when I landed in Nashville, starting over would take up a good portion of my first year here. I also knew that I had projects that still needed to move forward: I've been sitting on Creative Freedom for a […]

The Pretender, The Coward, or Your True Self: Which "You" Are You?

Last year, I was introduced to a concept that I've continued to grapple with from time to time. The picture below is taken from page 61 of Dr. Maria Nemeth's book "The Energy of Money". It's an illustration that one of her teachers once shared with her: When my coach first introduced it to me, […]
