UNLEASHING YOUR CHILDHOOD COURAGE TO BE YOUR BOLDEST SELF - THE YELLOW ROOM

Do you remember that feeling of getting lost in something – really getting lost in something the way you used to as a child? What was that “something” for you – playing doctor, dressing up, cooking in a perfectly curated play kitchen, pretending to be a mommy? For me, it was writing. When I wasn’t […]

HUSTLE LESS, PLAY MORE: YOUR CREATIVITY WILL THANK YOU

How often have you sacrificed rest, play, and relationships to get ahead in your creative endeavor? For me, the answer is a lot. My first year in business, I hustled – hard. In some regards I enjoyed working four jobs, pulling 80 hour weeks, and living on pure adrenaline and caffeine. I prided myself in […]

EXPERIENCING THE IMPACT OF DIVERSE CULTURE (WITHOUT A PASSPORT) - THE YELLOW ROOM

I spent the summer after eighth grade in a bright orange vest, parking cars at the fairgrounds. It was August in Michigan and we had the humidity to prove it. At age 13, this was hardly the glamorous image I wanted my peers to witness, but I was determined to raise enough money to take […]

QUIETING FEAR TO LET YOUR VOICE SPEAK LOUD

I can remember standing in the bathroom mirror and practicing my resignation speech over, and over again. I went through the words that would speak my heart and intent, but clarify my courage to leave for my next level. Every time I finished it, expecting to feel at peace, I felt a knot of fear […]

WHY CREATING PRESSURE IS ACTUALLY BENEFICIAL FOR YOUR PASSIONS - THE YELLOW ROOM

I sat down a few weeks ago with a dusty cowboy. Literally, covered in dust from training mustangs all day. He started a non-profit that helps rehabilitate veterans through teaching them to work with wild horses. The entire meeting was so inspiring, learning how their cause was all about a hand up, not a hand out […]

CONFRONTING OUR INNER JUDGEMENT TO UNCOVER OUR BEST SELF - THE YELLOW ROOM

Who am I, really? It’s a question I’ve put a lot of thought into over the past year. Every day, we are in the process of becoming ourselves. Each choice we make (about clothes, or business, or relationships, or food) is an unconscious decision about who we are not only on that day, but who […]

HOW TO MAINTAIN MOMENTUM WHILE STARTING A BUSINESS - THE YELLOW ROOM

Some people in life will tell you that figuring out what you want to do is the hard part. Honestly, I can’t completely agree. Once I realized that I wanted to create my own company as a Holistic Health and Wellness Coach, I found out that deciding how to move forward when starting a business can be just […]

5 MUSTS FOR BRINGING MEANING TO THE IN-BETWEEN OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

I was feeling a little guilty. I’d worked so hard to get where I am, but now there was somewhere else I wanted to go. An old friend’s stinging words flashed back into my mind and nagged at my heart, “Won’t you ever be content?!” But the truth is, I still am. I’ve realized in […]

You’re doing a lot right now. You could be stretching yourself right and left to meet deadlines for your side job and your passion project. Maybe you own your own business and are constantly creating events, taking care of your team, and trying to figure out what is next. Or, perhaps you’re in the beginning of it all […]
