What If You’re the Only One?

It always seemed unfair that Skeletor didn’t have more help. I mean, even when I was a kid, I got that Skeletor was a bad guy, and that it would Not Be Good if he conquered the universe. But it didn’t seem right that He-Man had all those friends to help him thwart evil schemes, […]

How to Focus when there is No One Focus

As a self employed multipotentialite, I juggle writing gigs, web design and graphic design projects. I dream of being a life coach, having my own e-course and/or membership site, filling sold out workshops and in-person retreats, and writing Amazon bestsellers. I have a million ideas bouncing around in my head that I have yet to […]

Does Having a Diverse Background Make You More “Specialized” Than Even… A Specialist?!

I had a major epiphany the other day. As I sat down to revamp my coaching page, I suddenly realized something: my particular brand of coaching is highly specialized. (Specialized? Blasphemy!!) See, while I’m a total multipotentialite and have a ton of different interests, those interests all come together in one extremely customized service. I […]

Overlwhelmed by the Good Stuff

It’s been three weeks since my return from Europe. My plan was initially to hit the ground running. I didn’t want to take any time off for fear of falling into the post-exam vortex.

Screw Employment, Invent Your Own Job!

Today I’m going to answer a question that was sent to me by a good friend of mine.

Sometimes I’d try them out, other times I’d talk to someone in the profession to see what the day-to-day reality was like. But no matter how […]
