Overriding Rejection & Being Protective of Your Creativity

FIRST UP: I’ll be going live on Instagram & Facebook every single day at 8am ET until the global pandemic / quarantine / isolation is over, whenever that may be.

Each day has a different theme, and overall the idea is to create more connection in a time we desperately need it more than ever as we are physically isolated. Please join me – and so far we’ve been managing to have some laughs, and the lives are getting spicier by the day!

We’re covering everything from online business, podcasting and entrepreneurship to mental health and figuring out how to manage life in these uncertain times. See you at 8am ET!


It’s never been more important to tune into your intuition as an entrepreneur, and learning how to figure out when and how your body is talking to you is a very important practice in a noisy world.

One reason this is extra important right now is because the type of adversity that we’re dealing with at the moment is something that will actually breed creativity in the longer term, and I want you to be very protective of those ideas as they come to you. Whenever some sort of new idea comes to us, it’s so easy for fear to get in the way of taking it to the next level.

Our brains want us to stay comfortable, and that means that negative thoughts will enter our heads nearly immediately. Or, we might share new ideas with people close to us and they may offer criticism or feedback that can crush a new idea before it ever even takes off.

I’m giving you some homework from this episode that’s going to help you keep on track and take action on those big, incredible ideas as they come to you! Let’s dive in.
