The 7 Pillars of Creativity
How To Start A Business
I’ve become obsessed with the creation formula. You know, what actually helps us create meaningful and fulfilling projects? I mean, obviously there is no approach to creativity that is linear and the same for everyone, however, there are commonalities of creativity that I’ve noticed in myself and others that I observe, that I’d like to decode for you.
A Mother And A Dreamer
The very first thing I want to tell you is this: I’m not an expert in profit and loss statements, business taxation, or profit margins, but what I do know a thing or two about is starting a business from scratch.
I started my first business when I was 16. It was a mobile personal training business that I ended up operating out of my custom-built garage of my house - complete with sound system, rubber flooring and occasionally a parked car right next to us. I had a full client list, and a jam-packed work schedule, and ran this for almost 7 years.
My Postpartum Body: Unleashed
Sister, you don't have to choose. You can have both - purposeful parenting AND a big ass dream. It's not an all or nothing equation. I'd love to share how I made motherhood and goal getting work side by side - it's possible!
Seeing Goals From A Fresh Perspective
This is me opening the metaphorical can of worms. POP!
Yep, I’m talking about the postpartum body. Now, I should mention that this is my story, and it’s up to you to have your own experience and to decide for yourself what feels good and what doesn’t. I’m not a guru in this area. I’m just a girl that had babies and has struggled to acclimate to the new me.
The Lies I've Told Myself
Ok. Who has set a goal, fully committed and gone for it, only to fall off the wagon within a matter of weeks (maybe months if you’re disciplined AF)? Be honest.
I have! And I’m certain most (if not all) of you have too. I mean, the fact that only 8% of people will make good on new year’s resolution speaks volumes, right?
7 Practices And Beliefs That Lead To More Joy.
I’ve had one of those weeks. The ones that feel murky, muddy, testing, emotional … and necessary. As Brene Brown says, we know that being in the arena means having our asses kicked … often (it’s a given, in fact). But for some reason, it always bloody surprises me when it happens! Put it down to the full moon if you like, but basically - the week has been messy AF.
Friends, I am NOT a joy expert BUT, I’ve become pretty damn good at recognising the practices, beliefs and tools in my own life that help me to cultivate more joy, and I want to share them.
