Kick Tuesday’s Ass: live from NOLA

It’s time to kick Monday Tuesday’s ass…

So Monday was yesterday? How about that…

If you’re following along, I’m currently in New Orleans. First time in my life and I’m super excited. Here’s me in front of the “haunted” LaLaurie mansion in the blissfully uncrowded French Quarter.

I’ve always wanted to come here and somehow never managed to. And when my ex blindsided me with the, “I don’t love you, let’s break up” whammy back in October, for weeks I was lost and supremely uncomfortable.

Uncomfortable because I’d had plans and a particular vision for my future… and then my plans were changed for me, and I didn’t really have a say in how it all went down. The only piece I could control was what I did NEXT.

My solution? Embrace the discomfort. Revel in it like a freshly washed dog gleefully rolls in dirt. That’s why I decided to do this digital nomad thing while building my business.

If I’m gonna be uncomfortable, might as well be ALL THE WAY uncomfortable and make some cool memories in the process.

This isn’t the vision I had for my life just a few short months ago. And yet, life goes on despite our discomforts and personal tragedies.

Why am I yammering on about New Orleans and discomfort?

The nature of life is unpredictable, but somehow we fool ourselves into thinking that once we get to that “happiness” milestone, nothing will ever change. But the reality is – the only consistent thing you can expect from life IS change.

So why do so many aspiring entrepreneurs think of business as somehow immune from life?

They plan and prepare and when the unexpected disrupts the flow of things, they convince themselves they weren’t cut out for this “business stuff”.

Life happens. If you trip and fall, you wouldn’t lay down like a human speed bump and wait for death to take you. You’d pick yourself up and get moving.

You want to be in business? Get comfortable with discomfort. And maybe even have some fun with this thing.

And now for this week’s video…

Kick Monday Tuesday’s Ass: if you choose not to decide…


Sometimes I see new entrepreneurs start a business like this:

“I’ll work on it in my spare time and see how it goes… then I’ll know whether to put more effort/investment in.”

If that’s your approach (and no judgment, I’ve been there myself) – I’m gonna challenge you to reframe. This isn’t a lotto ticket you can passively scratch off and win big with minimal effort. It’s all in this week’s video…

Badass of the Week

It’s Betty White. Full stop.

She just turned 99 and is STILL out there kicking ass and inspiring folks.

If the internet is to be believed, Betty White came along in 1922… and sliced bread became a thing in 1928.

Making sliced bread the greatest thing since Betty White.


Happy birthday Ms. White. May we all be inspired by your example and keep doing what we do until we’re done.

On Repeat This Week…


This one’s called In the Waiting Line by Zero 7.

I was listening to this one on my morning walk and felt it speaking to me. The mellow groove and tight harmonies only added to the experience.

Wait in line
‘Till your time
Ticking clock
Everyone stop

Everyone’s saying different things to me
Different things to me
Everyone’s saying different things to me
Different things to me

Do you believe
In what you see
There doesn’t seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

Do you believe
In what you see
Motionless wheel
Nothing is real
Wasting my time
In the waiting line
Do you believe in
What you see



If you’re an aspiring freelancer who’s working up the courage to leave the day job… good news! I’m sharing all the things I WISH I’d known before making the leap so that hopefully your journey goes a little more smoothly than mine.
