HOW SIMPLE LIVING FREED ME TO LIVE AROUND THE WORLD - THE YELLOW ROOM

I used to think that having less would constrain me and limit my freedom, but not until I embraced minimalism did I realize just how freeing this a simpler life is. Minimizing within my life has created a side effect that has changed everything: the freedom to become location independent. Now, I get to travel for […]

WHY LOVING WELL AND SUCCEEDING GREATLY IS NOT AN EITHER/OR - THE YELLOW ROOM

“I don’t have time for a relationship.” Flashback six years, and I remember how 80-hour work weeks aren’t conducive to relationships. Clients tell me, “I’m still single because I’m focusing on my career.” This saying reflects a myth that exists when it comes to entrepreneurial women. The myth goes like this: We have to choose. Do […]

I couldn’t tell you the number of moments I have been completely overwhelmed. The times I’ve said, “I am so tired and so stressed I haven’t slept at all”, or “There is no possible way to get all of this done because I have no idea what I’m even doing”. Our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions can often get the best […]

“There is an intersection between ambition and ease,” my mentor told me recently. “It doesn’t have to be an either/or scenario. You are allowed to have both.” I loved this idea, but couldn’t help but roll my eyes. “Easy for her to say,” I thought. “She’s already successful, I’m just starting out. If I don’t hustle […]

You’re stepping your game up these days, one item at a time. You’re a conscious consumer – a social […]

TRAVEL-FRIENDLY WAYS TO PRACTICE SELF CARE ON THE ROAD - THE YELLOW ROOM

I don’t know about you, but it’s taken me a few years to get in the groove of practicing my self-care routine while traveling! When I’m at my home base, it’s so easy to be diligent about my morning rituals, self-care practices, healthy eating, and exercise. But the minute I travel back to East Africa […]

WHAT I LEARNED BY TAKING THREE MONTHS OFF FROM SOCIAL MEDIA - THE YELLOW ROOM

Right now is the best time to have a heartbeat. Opportunities are directly in front of us if we ask and act for them. Our generation is booming with believers in creating the extraordinary – in every capacity from relationships to careers. Social media has become a tool to foster this connection, creativity, and growth, […]

HOW TO BREAK THE PATTERN OF BURN OUT - THE YELLOW ROOM

Many of us in the Yellow community have a million things going on, right? Maybe you’re working a day job and a side hustle. Or you might be an entrepreneur working at a coffee shop to get by. Perhaps you’re a mom too. Plus, you’re probably involved in a community or might spend time volunteering. Not to mention, […]

ENJOYING A CREATIVE OUTLET WITHOUT THE PRESSURE OF PROFIT - THE YELLOW ROOM

As a creative lady, it’s almost too easy to find new outlets to explore. I’m a blogger. I live to write, to share, to pour myself out with my words. I love what I do – how it’s always changing, always evolving, always getting better. However, it’s easy to feel pulled in different directions creatively. Often, we see […]
