Do You Sometimes Feel Lazy or Undisciplined?

Posted · Add Comment

I’m a visionary. I get a lot of ideas. I get excited about so many things. And have idea after idea for my business, my relationship, my life. Being an idea person has meant I’ve started and stopped a million things. I’ve said, “This is it—I feel like this is the thing” more times than […]

What Would Life Be Like If You Were a Genius?

Posted · Add Comment

If I knew I was a genius years ago, I would have lived my life differently. If I knew I really had something to offer the world—something important, something special—I wouldn’t have let people’s criticisms tear me down. I wouldn’t have taken on other people’s rules. I wouldn’t have had fear that I couldn’t do […]

Do You Struggle to Feel Supported?

Posted · Add Comment

I’m home all day, so I like to do things around the house in between calls. I do the laundry, make the bed, and pick up the clutter (which is mostly dog toys everywhere). Sometimes, when Garrett’s home, he wants to help me, which is fantastic. Except he does it all wrong. He doesn’t make […]

Do You Ever Feel Overwhelmed by Your Vision?

Posted · Add Comment

I’m a big vision person. I can see the vision, the big idea, and I get so excited I can hardly contain it. I love new ideas. I love thinking about how they can help people. I love imagining a better future. Where everything is transformed. But, when it comes down to the all of […]

Do You Ever Doubt Your Vision?

Posted · Add Comment

Whenever I’m going through a hard time, whenever I’m doubting my vision, I think of my proposal to Garrett. Just over three years ago, I proposed to Garrett on a balcony on the Amalfi Coast overlooking the Mediterranean. Except it was a complete disaster. See, it was a vision I saw in my mind just […]

Do You Actually Take Yourself Seriously?

Posted · Add Comment

For a long time, I didn’t take myself seriously. I never thought of myself as a serious artist or serious entrepreneur or serious visionary. That was for other people. People who had their shit together. And there I was—“too much” and “not enough.” Too imaginative. Too optimistic. Too naïve. Too excited. Too hopeful. Not determined […]

Does Being a Visionary Feel Complicated?

Posted · Add Comment

Life as a visionary can feel really complicated. There are all kinds of landmines to navigate. Like being super sensitive to—and even affected by—other people’s emotions. And getting really excited about new ideas, but lacking total clarity around how to actually make it real. Somehow things seem to flow easily for others but just don’t […]

Are You Afraid of Being Wrong Again?

Posted · Add Comment

I never raised my hand in school unless I absolutely knew the right answer. I never spoke up about my opinion in a conversation unless I was absolutely the most well-informed. I lay low and let superiors speak over me, even when I knew more, so as not to rock the boat. I kept quiet—a […]

Are You a Romantic?

Posted · Add Comment

I’m a romantic. It only took me an annual viewing of the cheesy (and maybe most contentious) Christmas movie Love, Actually last night to realize it. My whole life, I’ve carried the story that I was naïve or too idealistic or unrealistic or too demanding or—quite frankly—high-maintenance. That I lived up in the clouds, wasting […]
