Off on a Craftcation (& an aw-inducing photo)!

Not to rub it in, but I’m heading to the beautiful beachy town of Ventura, California to get my craft on at Craftcation!

Screen Shot 2014-03-24 at 5.37.31 PM

I’ll be both working and playing there this Thursday and Friday, giving a talk on An Effective Escape: Building Your Biz So You Can Quit the Dreaded Day Job & being a panelist two times over!

Then I’m heading back to LAX so I can rent a car and hightail it to spend a few days with this face – my 15 month old nephew, Kash – and his parents, my sis- and bro-in-law!


Don’t you want him to deliver little newspapers to your house?

If you’re gonna be at Craftcation (it’s sold out!), make sure ya come to my office hours/book signing/panels/talk and/or tweet me over at @WhenIGroUpCoach. I’ll also be taking plenty of Instagram shots of both the conference & my nephew, I’m sure!

Tapping Into Your Inner Child

I’m thrilled thrilled thrilled (thrilled!) to be able to show you guys my presentation + interview from the Reboot Workshop back in October here in NYC.

I spent my 15 minutes on speaking from experience on tapping into your inner child, and how it pays such a big fat role in my life and my biz.

The video even shows the slides I was showing behind me, and let’s just say that they include lots of embarrassing old show shots. (Can we say spandex leopard-print bell-bottomed sequined jumpsuit? Yes, yes we can.)

Here it is:

And after I was done, TED Speaker and the founder of 1 Second Every Day Cesar Kuriyama interviewed me (and Lucille, my pink ukulele!):

What did you takeaway from the video(s)? Any questions for me? Like the spot in the video where I totally lost my place?

Save the Date for a free, invite-only Clubhouse Coworking Day!


Good Things print by Little Low Studio on Etsy

Haaaaaaaaappy almost-2014!

Hope you’re planning a celebratory evening and a relaxing + rejuvenating day to ease into this new year.

If you’re anything like me, though, once the champagne wears off you’ll be raring to get back to business. I swear, some of my favorite days have been ones I’ve spent with markers and spreadsheets and mindmaps and my Box o’ Business Brilliance.

I’m such a nerd.

If you’re looking to set your sights back on your business foundation, I have the funnest solution (seriously, it all has to be fun – I won’t tolerate it any other way): an invite to my Clubhouse Coworking Day on Friday, January 3rd!

I pow-wowed with the current Clubhouse members, and they can’t wait to meet and greet some other likeminded, creative, soon-to-be/new-ish entrepreneurs.

What you need for a super strong business foundation


Man oh man, have I done some overhauling with my Clubhouse.

I launched in almost 2 years ago to, um, less than desirable results.

Then, I overhauled it and “launched” it again… and then closed the doors ’til the end of 2012.

I was gonna write a quick post that says just that along with the link to check it out, but instead of just *telling* you it’s open and what’s changed, I wanted to give it to ya along with the why. As you know, I’m all about being transparent about my business goals, challenges, wins and decisions – and I thought it would be helpful for ya to get a bigger sense of how I came to make these changes.

Below, you’ll find the email I sent to my current Clubhousers last month announcing the changes.
