People are afraid to ask questions, mostly because we’re often made to feel like we should know the answer already. What’s up with that? It’s virtually impossible to know everything (or Google wouldn’t exist) so I love it when people ask questions. In fact, people ask me a lot of questions. The first in a […]
Drama is everywhere, right? As someone who used to love being involved in other people’s businesses in a major way, it’s very easy for me to get wrapped up in a bunch of drama that simply isn’t mine to own. AND, as a yogi, I know that doing so causes more harm than good and the […]

Oh, the dreaded blank page. So much potential. So much…. intimidation. Wouldn’t it be nice if the words could just start flowing, if the design just came on it’s own, if the color palette fell together with no effort at all?
