Tuesday: But First, ALL the coffee.
I get asked why I chose to make the goddess a half drawing. To be honest, I’m pretty sure it was her choice. To begin with, her ideas and timeline are sure different than mine. Her first incarnation on paper came forth in black and white circa 2014. I wanted desperately to finish the other half of her face. Each time I laid pen to paper, I drew a blank. She was content to wait until I could get on board. So much so she let me bury her in a dark art drawer for 4 years. I ran across her on and off during that period. Nothing. *
Then last spring she emerged during prep for my first studio sale. I was in a different place. She had tons to say. Ideas came flooding in. I scanned her and digitally colored her. She’s made an appearance on a mug, and on two wood panels. I told this story to someone while live painting a few weeks ago, and got the awkward side eye. Lol. Which is okay. I’m probably not going to get everyone on that train with me. I share this mostly for the people who have a version of her in their home. I think she’s chosen them too. #energyoverimage

Quiet ways I’m leveling up:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
(a list in progress)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-• Getting a damn hobby that isn’t business or family related! I’m starting with drawing, and moving my body regularly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Teaching more free, high value content 🙌🏻⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Getting back to setting personal financial goals for savings and investing. Finally, after 1000 years of SLEEP and What The Baby Needs being the focus of every conversation.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Redecorating my office so it’s also a functional, beautiful set for video.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
•Setting monthly goals, measuring my results, and sharing them with my clients every month.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Assessing how I can make the Indie Business Intensive even more valuable and actionable⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
• Ending my work days at 3 pm so I can go on Winter Walks with my toddler. He saw the moon for the first time last night and kept clapping and signing for “book” because he only knew about it from storybooks. (As Amy Poehler would day, “Yes Please. More please!”.)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s one way you’re leveling up personally or professionally in 2019?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So these are coming along nicely... The K along with several others at the beginning of the alphabet will be available in the first couple weeks of January 🌿😁💚 I will also be restocking all of the 8 x 10 art prints at that time.

It was the most amazing thing to see the children engage with my story Pedrinho Petrificado. They scrunched their noses at smelly Pedrinho and looked worried when Pedrinho was scared. I loved it. I could have inscribed my books to them all day.
Hey babes. So I often get asked, what my advice is for someone who wants to start their own business. Well let me tell you, there are a million things to think about, research, learn and prepare... BUT: one thing is for sure. YOU WILL NEVER BE READY! Now don't worry. This isn't meant to put you off doing your thing. On the contrary. You can now stop worrying, about waiting for the perfect moment to launch, start and go for it, because that moment simply doesn't exist. There will ALWAYS be more that has to be done. But guess what? It's a work in progress. You can tweak and adjust things as you go. So my best peace of advice to start something? Start BEFORE you're ready and trust in the process. Know, that you'll get whatever has to get done done. It doesn't have to be perfect right from the get-go. K?
The first step to success is believing in yourself! 💪
