“Who the hell do you think you are?” How to beat imposter syndrome and up your business game

I recently had a huge realization about the clients I LOVE working with. They’re smart, view me as a thought-partner rather than teacher, know what they want and are willing to go after it, and challenge me to show up and do my best co-creative work with them. Some of them have PhD’s and MBA’s (letters I do not have after my name) and have, between you and me, always intimidated me a little. It’s only recently, having successfully coached…

Are YOU the biggest obstacle to your business growth?

  Before taking on a new client I always ask (among other questions), what’s getting in the way of them achieving their goals.  And do you know what answer I get most often? ME!

Regardless of how good someone’s life looks from the outside, everyone has doubts, fears, and feels truly stuck from time to time. It’s just a part of the human condition. But here’s the part we forget in the moment (even if we know it intellectually) is it’s not our lack of…

How to master your emotional game

In a world that idolizes entrepreneurship you can be forgiven for thinking there’s something wrong if you’re not feeling inspired and in full-on hustle mode 24/7.  The truth is, being a business owner or independent creative is hard and full of ups and downs: without daily interaction it’s easy to feel isolated you’re often working in a vacuum, unsure if this idea you’re pouring your heart and soul into is even any good you’re out there on the leading edge…
