The MAPS Journey:

Once or twice a month inspiration hits - during a client call, on the train, plane, or car, or on a stroll around the lake or up a hiking trail - and I sit down to write about Mindfulness, Activation, Purpose, and Surrender. These musings are published by the co-founders, Laura and Charles Araujo, of the MAPS Institute. This is a truly beautiful community of experts and life-creators that promotes a balanced lifestyle leading to fulfillment, generative-ness, and (in my own words now) a vision lived out in-full.

In my articles, I frequently share about my own journey and from my work with clients. Have a read:

Cultivating a Business Plan That Offers True Freedom Might Sound Like a Fantasy. This Coach Shares the Secret Recipe Learned From A Margarita-Artist Named Lemon.

If you’re building a business, you probably started with a business plan or at least guiltily remember that you were supposed to have one. But what if the traditional way we think about a business plan is actually the thing that is holding you back from achieving lasting success?

I work with classical musicians that are building community-based businesses. Each of them seems to believe that they need to grind, sweat, and sell their souls to be successful. But as they learn pretty quickly, that just leads to a failed business and burnout.

In my work, I’ve found that there is only one real reason people quit their 9-to-5:FREEDOM.

They want financial freedom and the freedom to work where, when, with whom, and wearing whatever the heck they want.

But by the time they’ve filed all the paperwork, lost years of their lives creating a website, and find themselves surrounded by vision boards and oughta-dos, it starts to happen: money worries creep in, and friends and family cast worried looks their way.

They realize that they’re anything but free.
