CEFJ #44 Holding Companies & Subsidiaries for Creatives (10/18/17)

Hi all! Yes, I’m finally back after a 2-week, unintended hiatus. Yes, grad school has been dragging me from coast to coast. Still! I haven’t lost sight of the dream, and I am finally in the actual process of re-structuring my entire Rebel Ragdoll f’empire. 🙂 I have some limited insights on this process and some other things, so tune in!

CEFJ #39 Grad School is Dark and Full of Terrors (9/14/17)

Soo, giving myself some grace last week REALLY helped, but apparently, I need to whip out the EXTRA grace this week as the tides of fuckery rise against my person again, lol. Laugh = light, y’all. Still, while this week dragged me a bit and I took a few L’s, I still came out with some awesome skills and knowledge that will stay with me forever.

CEFJ #38 Giving Myself Some Grace (9/4/17)

After the week and a half I’ve had? It’s time to give myself a little grace, boo. I’m still on my hustle, grind, and flow, but today I’m also taking a minute to breathe and do a self-inventory. I’ve had some massive successes so far this year, started a four-figure creative business, am doing my thing and getting ninja-trained in grad school (and am finally loving it), AND I am on the verge of publishing two more novels before year’s end!

Join me as I gear up to finish the remaining 33% of this year STRONG, while also NOT going crazy! 😉

CEFJ #35 Battles on All Fronts & Artistic Resistance (8/14/17)

I’ve got some updates this week, but I’d be lying if I said my energy WASN’T at an all-time low. Recent events in Charlottesville and with North Korea have got me fighting anxiety and situational depression like WOAH.

There may be some dark times ahead for our country, and I am trying to stay strong, focused, and inspired through my art. I hope you will too!
