Happy New Year!

2016 is was an EYE OPENER for me!  As I sat on the plane coming home from holiday vacation I saw this amazing skyline. It felt like the right moment to reflect on the year passed and think about my lessons learned – lessons I can use going into 2017 and think are helpful for […]

Let’s talk about Discipline

Discipline? I failed (at first) I recently did a two-part “art and chat” Periscope on the topics of discipline and being hard on yourself. I discussed the importance of working on your craft to not only improve your skills but to create a daily practice and discipline yourself to do it. I am inspired by my friends […]
