5 Steps to Reconnect with Your Dream Joy

For years, I had the vague notion that I wanted to be a “Joy Teacher.” What that looked like exactly, I didn’t know, nor did I know how one could make a living this way. As someone who overcame trauma earlier in my life and who feels like a “walking miracle” to still be alive, […]

California Drought Interrupts Dream Progress

While you are living the dream journey, there will be those times when life seems to get in the way of your dream progress.

Finding Happiness Through Being With Your Soul Tribe

This past weekend, I had the privilege and the joy of getting to spend time with my “soul tribe” – other life coaches who are looking to expand our businesses and do fun, transformational work in the world. I have followed and admired the amazing Martha Beck Certified Master Life Coach Susan Hyatt for years, and I got […]

What does a book series focusing on a specific sex life have to do with your next workout? I guess it depends what you plan to do in the […]

How to Use Google Trends to Make Your Content go Viral

When writers first begin showcasing their craft on the Internet they usually start with subjects that only they want to tell the world.
