The 5 pillars of my work

For anyone who has been following me over the past few years has probably noticed that my  work and what I’m writing about has changed significantly. Sometimes it even shocks me how much I’ve outgrown some ideas and beliefs that I was previously so passionate about...

Self-worth is a verb

What would I do if I valued myself? This question is a favorite of mine that I ask myself often. This one along with “is this life-giving?” Usually when I’m stuck and am uncertain of what to do in a situation I ask myself one or even both of these questions, and...
