WARRIOR Circle

Talking_Stick_FB_authenticity

The message about authenticity has gotten through loud and clear. We know that to be in business today and build real relationships with those we do business with based on trust, we must be authentic. I’m thrilled entrepreneurs and Creative Warriors have embraced this all important message. And now we’re hearing a lot about alter-egos, super powers, and finding our superhero within. Isn’t this a conflict you might be thinking? Be authentic AND have an alter-ego? Well, before everyone gets confused, let’s have a chat about this and set the record straight. (more…)

Suck-it-up and do it, WARRIOR

Do you consider yourself a freelancer? I never have. I’ve considered myself a small business owner, an entrepreneur, but never a freelancer. In fact, I’ll admit to thinking freelancer had a bit of a negative connotation for me. That it meant I would do anything for anyone;  that’s so not true if you want success. Today we have an expert about freelancing who will help us get clear on what it means to be a freelancer and how to prosper. (more…)

Calm WARRIOR

Does the thought of managing other people make you uncomfortable? Would you rather just do everything yourself? What if managing people felt right? That it’s about building relationships not just getting results. It is possible to feel like you’re not just winning but in fact winning well. (more…)

WARRIOR Circle


What’s your favorite part of summer celebrations? In the U.S., we’re celebrating the 4th of July today. Burgers, bbq’s, and fireworks. Especially the fireworks. Collective oooos and ahhhhs as hundreds of thousands of people look up into the night sky. The sounds of amazement. I’ve been thinking a lot about amazement lately. I think most of us could use a bit more amazement in our lives. Why not? So much in life is amazing. Nature, incredible feats of accomplishment, even a simple everyday moment can be amazing.

WARRIOR Circle

No one likes a know it all. Don’t we all want to get away from the person at a party that goes on and on about themselves? Don’t be that person as a business. Don’t tell prospective clients about yourself. Compel them, magnetize them, fascinate them. At least at first. Think of it as flirtation. Get their attention. Use your smoothest moves. Then, once interested, you can tell people about yourself. (more…)

WARRIOR Circle

I’ve always hated the typical business advice “don’t take it personally.” As Creative Warriors it IS personal. We are always trying to do our best. We care deeply about what we create and the outcome we produce. How can we not take that personal? Which is why it’s so challenging when we feel we haven’t done as good a job as we’d like. In this episode, I share my thoughts on what to focus on to do your best job possible, what your “real” job is, and how to handle it when the results aren’t what you hoped for. We all have those moments.
