The grief I’m talking about today is the grief of what could be, what “should have been,” and grief of a dream that didn’t happen.
In this article, I share some thoughts about collective grief, body grief, business grief, along with some simple tools to handle it all and keep creating what’s possible.
Things mentioned: diet culture, white supremacy, and the US election so you may be challenged to stretch your beliefs a little bit, too.
How to create a schedule (even if you’re a creative soul who hates structure) that prioritizes YOU and the money-making actions in your business.

All you need to get your first client is the willingness to talk with people and invite them to buy what you have.
Sounds easy, right? But we complicate this SO much.
All of the things I list below, with the exception of #7, are great things to have. BUT if you are in the beginning stages of bootstrapping your business, consider that you don’t need these things.
Recently, I’ve been having conversations with freaking brilliant people where they are saying things like, “if it hasn’t happened by now, what if it doesn’t happen?”
These moments of truth can also be big traps of self-judgment. Here are six things I’ve learned when this shows up for me.
Have you had a moment that sounds like, “Maybe I just shouldn’t do this anymore? If this is what I was meant to do, it would have worked out by now.”
Or, “I should be further along than I am now.”
Here are two tips to help get you clear on what’s next and why the temptation to quit is really a good thing if you’re willing to be uncomfortable.

One of the most common things I hear from entrepreneurs about why they don’t market themselves is that it’s overwhelming. “I just don’t know what to do.” “How do you get it all done between taking care of clients, writing, creating content, the tech stuff, and then...
A lot of SOULpreneurs avoid or judge selling but what if you could embrace it? In this article, I share some bold truth along with four steps to let go of your hangups about selling and really start serving.
