A very wise woman once told me that life is a game of Call & Response.
And in every moment, you have an opportunity to ask yourself –
“What calls to me — from the world, from my heart, and from God?”
If you had asked me that question three years ago, I would have said — in complete honesty —
“I don’t know. But I’m pretty sure it doesn’t include a cubicle.”
If you had asked me that question two years ago, I would have said –
“I think I know. And I’m pretty sure it involves working as a scribe … a soul stenographer … a storyteller.
Someone who can channel other people’s messages into words they can use, to move their missions forward.”
If you asked me that question today, I would say –
“I know — for now. And right now, I am called to serve the world as a writer & teacher.
I am called to mentor rising artists & entrepreneurs.
I am called to share everything I know about precise & powerful self-expression — in life, love & business.
I am called to be an icon of originality.
I am called to lead by example — by playing more than I work, by telling the truth, and by making good art. Every day.
I cannot wait to answer each new Call. Oh, I am READY!”
Here’s what’s on the horizon for you & me …
I got a book deal, y’all!
My first print book — 50 Ways To Say You’re AWESOME — will be released in Fall 2013, through Sourcebooks. Mark your calendar. It’s gonna be MEGA.
(It’s going to make you swoon.)
❤ LIVE EVENTS!
My next weekend workshop will be Feb 8 – 10, 2013 in Alberta, Canada.
It’s going to be a glorious winter retreat, with snowflakes, yoga stretch breaks (!), spirited conversations and sumptuous wordsmithery.
So much writerly love. I can’t wait to share it with you.
If you’re hoping to book a 1-on-1 playdate with me, you’ve got a while to wait.
I’m booked solid until August 2013. You can always jump on my waiting list,
or better yet — come to a workshop, and we’ll jam, group-style.
I’ve got a new digital product in my SHOP — it’s a spunky little wee-book called
100 Ways To Play With Yourself: How to be hilarious, whip-smart & sexy.
Grab it for $20, and $5 from every purchase goes to The Women’s Earth Alliance — a righteous non-profit that supports women in developing regions. YAH!
I have a momentous idea for a social experiment … and it’s all about ORIGINALITY. I’m going to reveal all the details on a live broadcast, later this year.
(You’re on my mailing list, riiight?)
