A Letter to My Younger, Fiery, Entrepreneurial Self

I was always an entrepreneur

I can’t think of a time when I wasn’t an entrepreneur. Of course, back in the day we didn’t call it that. Yet, I built a profession of some sort within every discipline of my life; equestrian sports, acting, dance, figure skating, voice. By today’s reckoning I became an entrepreneur before I was 20. I’ve never stopped.

Lately – though I’m not sure exactly why now – I’ve been asked things like “What have you learned?”, “What do you wish you’d done differently?” and “If you could give advice to your younger self, what would you tell her, having all the knowledge and experience you do today?

So I got to thinking about it… and about her. I was surprised to discover how much more I love and treasure her special brand of badassery now than I did back when I WAS her.  She was very angsty – and worried about EVERYTHING!

And yeah, I DO have some things I’d like to say to this younger, fiery, idealistic, funny, quirky, artistic and highly talented younger self ‘o mine. The advice is all about getting my mind right… because that was the one thing I wish I’d been better WAY at.

Still and all, we did manage to stay on the bike…

Hearing Voices In The Mist

So, this. Voices In The Mist. I recently made it image my new Facebook cover image.  It got alot… and I mean, ALOT more likes, comments and shares than normal.

Think it struck a cord? Or was it just algorithms?
Personally, I’m voting “cord”, for whatever reason it was struck.

I can tell you that to me, this is an illustration in a story about listening, finding your voice, speaking with it with all your heart & soul in your art… and in every thing you do.

Hearing Voices in Kelowna

I’d never heard of Kelowna, B.C. until recently. Have you?
Now that I’ve actually BEEN there – I can’t wait to go back!

(BTW, I also discovered the Best. Coffee. Ever!! Giobean… if you ever make it Kelowna, GO THERE!!)

Kelowna sits on Lake Okanangan. It’s wine country! It’s also lake country, as you can see from my vantage point atop Knox Mountain, my first night there…
