THE PUPPY DOG WARRIOR       

It’s very hard to imagine retirement- it can feel like a far-off dream. It’s difficult to save for something that you can’t even imagine. Because of this, a lot of us avoid thinking or talking about money at all. It doesn’t feel good. Like a diet, budgets are something we have negative feelings toward and ultimately end up abandoning.

THE WARRIOR OF DISCIPLINE       

Often, as creative professionals, we don’t put much thought into the idea of company culture. But even when your team is working remotely, you can build a successful culture. It all begins with you. If you have a clear idea of your company’s values, you can make sure everyone you work with is aligned with those values.

Warrior of Reciprocity

Have you ever considered the role you play as a connector? In other words, you create something for someone so that they can reach the audience or people they want to reach. When you think about it that way, it increases the level of responsibility and possibility for impact. I talk about how this can even change the world.

THE FUTURE SELF WARRIOR      

I’ve never had a guest on to talk about a memoir, but I thought Jane Pollak’s journey would be beneficial for the Creative Warrior community. Jane was a successful artist decorating eggs bought by people like Steve Jobs and featured at The White House, but ultimately she wasn’t happy. She decided that she could no longer settle for a life of not enough.

Warrior of Reciprocity

Being a warrior is courage on steroids. It takes so much courage to put ourselves out there, to risk failure as well as the risk of the burden of responsibilities of success. Courage has been on my mind because of the recent Netflix special with Brene Brown. A fantastic show that I highly recommend. I break down what courage means as a warrior and expand on a couple of the ideas that Brene talks about. Be a courageous warrior.

THE FAITH WARRIOR      

Making your creative business profitable is a constant struggle for artists. Because our services are often something we’ve done for free, we feel guilty charging a lot of money.  We get stuck in the loop of doing work at lower rates for friends and family and undervaluing the skills we bring to the table.

Ever have that feeling that you’re working really hard but hardly getting ahead? You know…running on a hamster wheel? It’s likely because you’re applying a lot of effort and strategy but getting in your own way with mindset blocks. In this episode, I lay out the three components you need to be truly successful. The trifecta of success. It’s a framework that I believe will work for you.

THE WARRIOR OF GRATITUDE     

A lot of times we set intentions, but we don’t get the results we want. This is because we are out of alignment. We have a vision, but we don’t actually believe our goals could come true. Manifestation is a powerful tool, but you have to align your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs in order for it to work.

THE WARRIOR OF PERSUASION    

When I had back surgery, my doctor told me everything that would happen except for one thing: there would be machines on my legs pumping my blood. I woke up and immediately thought I was paralyzed. If my doctor had told me this was going to happen, it would have saved me that moment of fear. It’s true in business, too.

Warrior of Reciprocity

Entrepreneurs don’t often think of themselves as leaders. Thinking like a leader will help you think bigger and step into creating the impact you want on your community and in the world. When you think of people like Elon Musk, Richard Branson and Oprah Winfrey, do you really think of them as business owners? They are leaders. There’s a latent leader in you waiting to come out!
