Freelance writing is an enjoyable career path, deserving of a daily soundtrack. Not all writing projects are created equal, making them susceptible to intellectual and creative stalemates (or lulls between the initial start of the project to the completion stage).
Maintain high levels of motivation through the power of the “Universal Language” that is music!

The Journal of Experimental Social Psychology has determined that pictures of famous, powerful female leaders boost confidence levels in women.
In the study, 149 women were shown photographs of well-known…
I wish I were in Brooklyn, NY to visit Kara Walker’s exhibit: A Subtlety, or The Marvelous Sugar Baby. Opening a dialogue about slavery, race, gender and various cultural bias and stigma, Walker’s sculpture has dug its claws deep into the psyche of Brooklyn and the world.

My friend Jake is a well-known and respected man in Austin, TX. Ours has been a long-standing friendship, tested by college nights littered with up-til-dawn parties and bleary-eyed Sunday mornings.
No matter how fond you are of a person, when they appear in your dreams you have to evaluate what their illusory presence meant. I’ve always admired my friend Jake because he’s smart and cool and…

Start telling a better-feeling story about the things that are important to you. Do not write your story like a factual documentary, weighing all the pros and cons of your experience, but instead tell the uplifting, fanciful, magical story of the wonder of your own life and watch what happens.

Frustration clouds your thoughts.
It’s the specter only you can see, hear and feel.
It gently runs its fingers through your hair and lulls you away from every great idea you’ve had.
It’s always there. Taunting you. Sitting next to you on the sofa, filling your head with thoughts of “I’ll get it done tomorrow” instead of today.
This friendly, unproductive ghost is your No. 1 Enemy, and its name is…

If your desire is strong enough, it doesn’t matter what your beliefs are. If you have a desire that is strong enough, that desire will be the dominant vibration, and it will over-ride any other vibration that you have.

May 3, 2014 started rudely.
My bladder woke me, demanding a release of filtered toxins. A throbbing headache accompanied the urgent wake up call. It only took four ibuprofen to relieve the grinding gears. The muscles in my thighs and calves ached bitterly from overuse during the past week’s morning walk-n-jogs.
After feeling this marriage of acute…
For the past couple months I’ve been ghost writing a non-fiction book. Ever since being asked to write the book, I’ve scoured the Internet to find the best way to tackle this incredible project. The best online resources I found were on Writers Digest and the best music to listen while writing a manuscript is anything by Junip or Brian Eno. Aside from the choices media type (print, e-book, etc),…
Do you know how to become “meaningfully engaged” with your life? Before listening to productivity consultant David Allen’s TEDTalks speech, I did not know how to practice the art of meaningful engagement. I’d never even heard of such a thing, which piqued my curiosity.
