It Feels Like Things are Coming to an End

This past month has been like a 180 from wherever I thought I was going. In my last post, I was talking about becoming a professional cuddler or sexual healer. Well, that's not happening any time soon and I'm not really that interested anymore. It's like the enthusiasm suddenly vanished over the past month and a half. I've found myself much…

Following Your Heart vs Your Mind

How do you know if you're following your heart vs your mind? Or more broadly, following love vs fear. One thing I've noticed more and more lately is that most of my anxiety and fear comes from being too much in my head.

Why Do I Sometimes Dread Opening My Email?

Gigi Young – Finding your Purpose and Starseeds – ep 01

This is the very first episode of the Maker/Mistaker Podcast! In this episode I talk with Gigi Young, a psychic intuitive that teaches and mentors others through a spiritual and cosmic perspective. I initially found her on YouTube talking about consciousness, spirituality, and extra terrestrials. The way she communicated esoteric ideas resonated nicely with where I'm at in my path and…

Letting Go of What Other People Think

Today I was listening to the Seanwes podcast and they were talking about how to stop caring what other people think. It's a great conversation, but I want to add my take on it here. This is a subject that I've been interested in for a while and I have heard all sorts of good advice over the years. Common advice…

Fear of Making Money

A while back I was having a conversation with a friend of mine Danielle Harper. We were discussing a lot of thing things that affect us as entrepreneurs. One of those was money. Danielle was describing a criticism she received but defended herself by saying, "and I didn't even make any money on it." I stopped her right there because what…
