Did We Strike a Nerve?

So…wow.

Bryan and I have simply been blown away by the response to last week’s “Living in Possibility” call! Hundreds of you joined us for a conversation about living life powerfully as artists who CHOOSE to create the success you desire (and deserve) in every area of your lives. We suspected there would be a few motivated artists who might dive into the material, but we just weren’t prepared for the number of calls and emails we’ve received, sharing your questions,   Continue reading this post >

Fighting Fear

At age seven, I was sure there was something living under my bed. Some nights I was certain I could hear the shallow breathing of the beast just waiting for me to dangle a leg or arm out. I’d tighten the covers, tuck in my feet and sleep in a blanket cocoon.

Miraculously, the next morning, the beast was gone. I’d laugh that I’d escaped another night’s terror and live without fear until the sun started to set and my mom   Continue reading this post >

The Balancing Act: Tools to Manage Your Money

A friend recently asked me to review her spending habits. We’ll call her Linda for this piece, although that’s not her real name. Like many artists, Linda struggles with a budget because she’s constantly on the go. Between workshops, auditions and performances her life is chock-full of lightening quick money decisions.

The Magic of Mentors

You’re out to do something big—with your career, with your finances, with your life. You’re tired of working hard but never feeling like you’re really moving forward. This is the perfect time to consider putting time and energy into finding and developing a relationship with a mentor.

A mentor is defined as “a wise and trusted counselor or teacher.” Doesn’t that just sound like a person we should all have in our lives?  There is plenty of research demonstrating that mentored   Continue reading this post >
