Open up if you're a business owner

Hey Reader.

This one's for the entrepreneurs, side hustlers, and biz folks because right now, we're all having a hard time.

If you're like me (and I think you're probably at least a bit like me since you're here... and I'm so glad you are!), then you care about what's going on in the world right now


you want to help


you're struggling with how to both be of service to those who need it, while also continuing to do the work that helps you live


you feel stuck because trying to ask people to purchase your goods and services feels weird when there are people whose lives literally hang in the balance.

And I totally feel you... because I'm right there with you.

And that frustrates me because don't really have an easy answer for you (or myself, for that matter).


if you want some company while trying to sort through what all this means for you and your business in this moment, then come join me and my friend Darci from Sweet Tooth Creative for a community discussion where we'll talk about this together.

It's happening THIS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18 at 11am EASTERN and all proceeds will be donated to organizations that support Palestinian liberation.

We've limited the number of available spots to 50 because we ACTUALLY want folks to be able to discuss.

Will I see you there?

In love, liberation, and solidarity,

Sent with big fat love from a messy desk and a neurodivergent mind.

Hey Reader. [read this with your ears by clicking here] Do you ever catch yourself sliding down the YouTube rabbit hole of videos that you're watching for "curiosity" or "entertainment" sake, yet are thinly veiled self-punishments because you spend the entire time judging yourself for what you aren't doing already but think you should be? No? Just me?? Well, that's fine. Because if you keep reading I'll tell you more about the wild landscape that is inside my brain and maybe you'll find...

Happy 44th unbirthday to you, Reader! (unless it actually IS your birthday today and then YAAAYYYY!!! Happy Birthday to yoooooouuuu!!!) I'm not a big birthday celebrator... I think it has to do with the fact that I put so much into producing birthdays for my child. But mostly it probably has to do more with the facts that I'm just mentally and emotionally busy right now and most of the people I really want to do stuff with live across oceans from me. Le sigh. Either way, I'm sharing my...

Hey Reader! Tomorrow, Sunday, February 25 I'm trying out something new: a Co-Doing Session! I find that body doubling (also known as coworking, which is simply doing your stuff with other people present) is a magical way to keep me on task and get things done. So if you're like me and enjoy doing your stuff with other folks around OR you're just curious about how or if body doubling can work for you, then I invite you to join me for a free Co-Doing Session! Simply RSVP by clicking the button...
