Last year I spent time at the most amazing retreat center in the Santa Cruz Mountains – 1440 Multiversity! I was there to hang out with my friends Kelly Rae Roberts + Beth Kempton who were teaching a creative business workshop that week. As I participated in their workshop, ate the most glorious food and soaked in a giant infinity tub overlooking a sea of redwoods I started to wonder how I could spend more time in this place!
During the week I also got to zoom out on my own creative business and contemplate where I was heading, what I wanted to slash and burn, where I was headed as a creative creature… And guess what? Everyone seemed to be finding clarity but me!
Until the very last day.
I realized that I had been at this creative biz thing for a looooooong time (more than 20 years!) And although I have had lots of great success over the years, some part of me was still waiting for permission – permission to be my biggest self, permission to have a seat at the table, permission to grow into more prosperity, permission to use my voice in bigger ways.
In the closing circle, I was the only one who didn’t share. No one noticed (phew!) which relieved me because I wasn’t ready to put my aha moment into words just yet. The closest words I had was a knowing that my seat at the table was there for me to choose. There would be no formal invitation. It was up to me to share my voice and my heart and claim that space… not in a shouty way, not at the exclusion of others, but in the way that someone who knows that they are worthy claims their space.
Back at home the next day, an idea seemed to drop in out of nowhere – 1440 should have a podcast and I should be their podcast host.
The feeling was total clarity.
Grounded. Like a fact.
Not a stretch.
No ego or fear attached.
Just a full body yes.
And somehow, 24 hours later I had whipped up a proposal for them and sent it off!
Eight months later, I am now their Facebook Live host! And I have been interviewing the most incredible personal growth luminaries that come through their center to teach. It’s live video! Which made me nervous at first… I’m used to radio! But it has been so good for me to work through that edge. Another level of trusting myself + my voice.
Are you ready for one of your Mondo Beyondo dreams to come true this year? YES you are!
