I'm willing to bet you seek answers to some of life's big questions:

Who am I? Why am I here? What are my gifts, talents, calling & purpose? How can I feel happy, free & whole?

You fantasize about ditching your corporate desk job for your creative dream job and crave more joy & fulfillment in life but your head rules your heart.

I get it.

Life isn't bad but the familiar routine of work—home—work is uninspiring and you feel like you're not reaching your full potential.

And that frustrates you because you've got a ton to contribute to the world and you want to make a difference but you're struggling to connect the dots.

You're convinced that if you could just figure out what would make you happy, discover your reason for being or get paid for doin' that thing you love—you'd be on your merry way.

But, then you think—nobody actually makes money doing what they love, right?

Okay... so you're a little doubtful, too.

Your inner-critic has been calling the shots and fear rules your life.

Besides, if you dared to dream big, you'd rationalize how you're not good enough, smart enough or anything enough to achieve your so-called dreams anyway.

So you played safe.

You did what most people do and got a "real" job and sadly—you've stopped dreaming.

Years have passed—you're depleted, lost, and you barely recognize that face you see in the mirror.

You've lost your spark.

And now you're here asking yourself arguably the most important question of your life—

Whose life am I really living?

I started this blog & biz while recovering from a 10-year corporate career that left me feeling lost, stuck and a little empty. I was frustrated by the monotonous routine of daily life and tired of pushing paper all day—feeling like my creative gifts & talent were going down the drain (even without knowing what they were).

Deep down I craved a creative, fulfilling career & lifestyle (something that felt authentically me) but fear, doubt and lack of direction kept holding me back.
