I almost didn't have a podcast episode today. Life has been interesting. I've been going through some personal shifts and my priorities have been changing. I wanna say probably in the last month or so, add in the fact that I did a two-day event followed by a one-day event, like kind of back to back, and recording a podcast kind of slipped my mind and I was like, I don't even know what to talk about. But then again, I have been shifting and my priorities have been changing and the things that felt good about a year ago at this point don't really feel all that great. And so I am in the progress of making some changes, but I'm not exactly sure what that looks like as far as my work. I don't think my work is changing at all. I am still going to help creatives and multi-passionate with their goals and their creativity and support them and get them accountable.
What I have decided is to close down my circle community at the end of this month, giving everybody enough time to get what they want out of it as well as me making sure I have all the resources pulled out of it and put them into my other resources already available, but it's not going away on my biweekly Q&A sessions. They are definitely still going to happen. We are gonna make them happen on Zoom. There is a way to sign up on my platform at programs dot the rebels ten.com on the free resources, the biweekly sessions you'll have to register to sign up so that you can get access to the link. And Q&A sessions are where either I'm sharing content about something that I then get put into the rebel space community, or it is you showing up coming in and asking me about any life and business.
What is the rebel space? The rebel space is a community for creatives, multi-passionate, who want to do life and business their way. Because so many times we have people telling us, this is how you should do it. And we're like, But it doesn't feel good. It doesn't feel like a line. I wanna do it my way. So I decided to create a community where you do however you want to, do, you do the things you want to do. I am giving you the support and the community to just show up as yourself. Because one of the things I've learned over the years is that if you are a rebel, if you are a renegade, a misfit, somebody who walks on the outside of the line from everybody else, maybe even walks the opposite direction, we often tend to do this alone. And I wanna give you the support and the space where you can remove the excuses that make it in the way and then rid yourself of the that comes along with this when you say, this is how you're supposed to do it from other people.
Because how many times have we heard that? Like so many times, right? The basic scenario is to go to high school, go to college, get a job, work in this job for however many years, retire and die. This is what we hear about how we're supposed to do life. But if you're ready to do your own thing and start your own thing and be who you are, unapologetically no matter what. If you want to have the support and the community where you and everyone get up every day doing whatever the hell they want, and you want to shift through your own stories, whatever's holding you back and remove those exp excuses, the rebel space is going to be for you. Um, but I wanted to go back to shifting because I also had the question in my email, and I feel like I'm not the only one who's going through some shifts in life and business, but how do you keep the faith when life is uncertain?
It's one of those weird things where we're like, Well, I've always just done it. I've always just had the faith and it can be really wonky. My perfect example would be when my son was in the hospital and we didn't know the outcome of his transplant and he was sick for a long time on the breathing tube, right? Like really just hard. The conversation with the doctor, that it was between him and the higher power, and we just had to keep the faith and this uncertainty. My biggest advice, I suppose, would be to have a clear vision of what you want to achieve. I have the free resource of how I set goals in my goal setting toolkit where I talk about writing out your vision and getting clear on that. Yes, you are still going through shifts and it's going to evolve and it may change again.
But taking the time to write out where you are now and what you believe is going to be your path from your own inner knowing and pulling it out of you. And every time you doubt yourself and every time you have some kind of anxiety about it, you read that vision to really get excited and energized about what you are creating. Life is not linear. This is why I don't set three and five-year goals because I know my goals will change. So I like to do actually this goal-setting practice about every three to six months to see where I'm at and how that still aligns. I hadn't done it in a while, but I know for the last month I have been called to shift things and I wasn't sure how they were going to shift. And slowly things are becoming more clear for me.
It's definitely gonna be more about the creative arts and helping you really pull your work out into this world, whether you're an artist or writer, a musician, to really just help you create what it is you want to create and put it out the world with confidence. And so I will just tell you today, wherever you are, take the time to write out what you would've liked to achieve within this next year. Pre-write it. Don't censor yourself. Just let it all out. Look back at it when you're done, and you'll know when you're done. And just kind of take note of some of the things that you want to do, that who you want to be and what you want to have because you'll be able to pull that out of that and then start working on it every day. And if you need to read that every day to hold steady and be excited about what you're creating, then that is what you'll do.

I turned my passion into my profession! Not only do I get to create art every day, but I also get to help other creatives pursue their own dreams of bringing their ideas into reality, so they too can have the cake and eat it too!
I know firsthand how easy it is to make excuses and how to make those excuses disappear like magic.
I have a BS in Accounting and a Ms in Mental Health Counseling, and a dual “PhD” in overcoming adversity from the School of Life.
