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 […]

WHY I WANDERED DOWN THE (ROUGH) ROAD LESS TRAVELED - THE YELLOW ROOM

My husband and I love long road trips. We so enjoy the changing scenery and the ample time to talk or just listen to podcasts. It’s concentrated time together with a chance for adventure – our winning combination. We even took a road trip as our honeymoon. Driving from Arkansas to Seattle and back, we made […]

WHAT I LEARNED WHEN MY DREAM JOB BECAME A CHORE - THE YELLOW ROOM

Growing up in an Asian culture, everything revolved around my career. Having both of my parents graduate from nursing school, it was a no-brainer for them that I, too, was going to step into the medical field. But as I got older I realized that there was a huge scope of professions, and before I […]

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 […]

REST, VULNERABILITY, AND CONNECTION: A RECAP OF OUR FIRST YELLOW COLLECTIVE LEADER RETREAT

Ever since we launched the Yellow Collective at the 2016 Yellow Conference, we’ve realized just how essential our Yellow Collective Chapter Leaders are to furthering our mission! They bring incredible women together to connect with each other across the country, in addition to fostering change through their own work and lives. We know how important […]

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 […]
