Creating a Tribe

The older I get the more I learn about myself. I’ve learned that I need an equal dose of motivational encouragement AND reality to make my big dreams happen. I’ve also realized through the years that often times I don’t dream big enough. So how do you find the happy medium? Well I’m not sure.

  • CreativeLive Photo Week Today 4:15 EST

Today at 4:15pm EST, I’m going LIVE and I’m freaking out!! I don’t care if I only have 20 people watching and most of those 20 consist of family members… it’s still nerve racking to fly all the way to Seattle for 24 hours just for a 90min presentation! It better be GOOD!

And you want to know what a common thread was on my feed? There were TONS of creatives sharing pictures of their new friends that they met at our first COME TOGETHER EVENT!!!!
