The Magic of Music

2020-04-15T09:18:23-08:00

I’ve had some really rough days recently. Getting sucked down the dark hallways. Feeling that deep heaviness, fear, anxiety. I hope you’ve somehow managed to swerve around this kind of thing.  Maybe the deep breathing helps. Or taking time to meditate every day. Or simply freezing the newsfeed before you lose your mind.  Since I [...]

Tune Out of the Media, Tune into Your Creativity

2020-03-13T12:11:51-08:00

Things are pretty crazy around here in Seattle, around the country, and around the world. It’s scary and things are changing fast. Besides prepping, washing your hands and all of that, we may be doing a whole lot of ‘social distancing’ for awhile.  While we all try not to freak out, I’ve been looking for [...]

The Solopreneur DreamJob

2019-12-13T09:58:47-08:00

Just like you, I’ve done many jobs in my life. I’ve worked illegally and underage at a scrap yard. I’ve interviewed rock stars. I’ve mowed grass. I’ve helped people heal and thrive. I’ve even made movies. Since I’m the type who likes to dream up various theories, I’ve thought a bunch about jobs, careers and [...]

Lead Yourself into Work that Matters

2019-12-13T09:58:08-08:00

The world is full of followers. F that. If you have an idea, a dream, an agenda, a cause— it’s your responsibility to take action. I know. Big words, right? Responsibility sounds like a burden. Maybe it is when it’s in a job you dislike or on the days when you wish you could get [...]

The Punk Rock Spirit— Assets and Liabilities

2019-08-07T12:46:42-08:00

F authority. That was my mantra starting at about age fifteen when I turned onto the ethos of the punk rock music that shouted from heart. I was a discontented suburban kid. Bored. Unseen. Pissed off at school, parents and anyone else who tried to tell me what to do. Over the years as I [...]

How to Veer in the Direction of Your Dreams

2019-04-10T15:01:14-08:00

Thought is cause. What the hell am I talking about? Fair question. Sometimes I speak in riddles. Here’s the scoop. Everything in the human world began in one place. Sometimes this is obvious. Sometimes not. I’m talking about our minds. Every single thing that every single human has ever done in this world starts here. [...]
