The #1 question to ask yourself to do work you love

Posted on April 19, 2018

I have a question for you.  "Can you remember who you were, before the world told you who you should be?" (Charles Bukowski) Really take the time to ponder this. This is probably the most important question you need to ask yourself if you want to be truly fulfilled in your work and in your life. Why? Well, it's pretty simple. If you don't, your work and life will be aligned with who you think you should be. ...what you ...

What are you saying NO to? (pics from my apartment)

Posted on April 16, 2018

Do you know that saying NO to what you don't want is as important as saying YES to what you want? It is often a prerequisite to it. It is necessary. You need to say no to what you do NOT want to make space for what you DO want. There is no other way. And this is true when you want to do work you love. You have to let go of work that is not for you. Last week, I had a professional organizer come to my place to help me ...

I used to think this was weird… (This may stop you from doing work you love)

Posted on April 5, 2018

Do you sometimes think that the thing you love doing is weird? or not cool? or do you discount it, and think you don't actually have anything you love or any passion?  When people ask you what you enjoy doing, you cannot find an answer. Well, I did. I used to think what I love was weird and "not cool." ... and this stopped me for a long time from doing the work I love. Since my early twenties, I have been drawn to personal ...

How much do you value yourself? (pics of something I’ve never done before)

Posted on March 21, 2018

Last week, I did something I have never done before.  I treated myself with a FULL day 1:1 with my kickass business and transformational coach, Kendra. Which means...all of her attention and coaching was on me between 10am and 7pm! Yes! I had her all for myself for a full day! Wow! Can you imagine this? My inner personal growth lover was ecstatic! The whole agenda was MINE. I could ask support and coaching on ANYTHING I ...

What saddens me the most in my work…

Posted on February 20, 2018

Do you know what saddens me the most in the work I do? It is when I see people give up on themselves. ...give up on their talents ...give up on their dreams ...give up on their potential ...give up on the work they love. I see their brilliance; I see them light up when they talk about what they love. I get so excited for what I see in them, the beauty I see, the amazing potential they have, the vision that is possible for them. I see ...

Proof that it works! How to make your career dreams a reality.

Posted on February 17, 2018

Is it really possible to make your career dreams a reality? You may think it is not, or not for you. Well, this is what Phoebe was thinking when I first met her in my my office in Oakland 2 years ago. Her story (below) is a proof that it is possible, and for you too. Phoebe was bored and stuck in work she hated. Her confidence was very low. She was very critical of herself and her abilities. She mentioned a long time dream of ...

I know the pain of spending day after day in a job that’s not a fit (here is my vulnerable story).

Posted on February 8, 2018

Are you (or someone you know) feeling drained or experiencing low self-confidence, self-criticism, even maybe mild depression at work or as a result of work? or maybe you feel lazy, unproductive, unmotivated or compare yourself to your coworkers. Do you believe this is normal and the way work is supposed to be? Do you think something is wrong with you? I get it. I used to feel that way.  I spent more than 15 years looking for my ...

What is your theme for 2018?

Posted on January 5, 2018

I am wishing you a magical 2018 full of everything that matters most to you. I want to share with you a practice that I do every year to set an intention for the New Year. I am not a fan of  “resolutions” and I don’t use them myself, as I think they carry a sense of “should” and “forced will power” that is uninspiring and counterproductive from the start. This is one of the reasons they fail. Instead, I connect with a ...

Do you beat yourself up because you have not found the career you love?

Posted on August 17, 2017

Do you beat yourself up because you are stuck in a career you no longer love and you have no idea how to find the work you love? Are you thinking: "Maybe there is something wrong with me if I haven’t figured it out, maybe I am not smart enough, or maybe I am broken?" Are you wondering: "What is wrong with me, why has everybody else figured it out and I haven’t?" If you are feeling or thinking any of this, then this video is for you. I ...
