Express an Idea Before You Choose a Medium

This post is by Joshua Lundquist. “Express an idea before you choose a medium,” would be a quote from me if I were addressing a bunch of young artistic types in an auditorium somewhere… But really, that is how I feel.  That is what I keep telling myself.  I don’t want to limit myself or […]

What does Your Childhood Reveal about what You Should be Doing Now?

In September I traveled to San Francisco to attend Cheryl Dolan‘s Platinum Presence workshop. It was pretty magical. I met some really amazing women, and I learned a lot of techniques that helped me prepare for my seminar. But the whole weekend was pretty revelatory. One of the exercises she had us do — the […]

What it Means to be “Entrepreneurial”

Up until a few years ago, I’d never thought of myself as entrepreneurial. It was partially due to the fact that I didn’t know what that word meant.

A Super Ninja Secret for “Finding the Time” and Inducing a Flow State

I flew back to Portland a week ago and it’s been a nonstop flurry of house hunting, settling in, and hustling hard on multiple projects (such as this one). I’ve also managed to squeeze in a few nights out and brunches in with friends, and I’ve been popping in on a yoga class, which is […]

The Selfish Artist

Who are you to be talking about “minimalism,” when there are people out there who sadly can fit all their possessions into a day pack? Who are you to be talking about “lifestyle design,” when there are people who have no choice but to hustle to make ends meet. Who are you to be talking […]
