A Desk is Opening Up at Friends Work Here

Psst… there is a desk opening up at Friends Work Here, my small but mighty, heart-forward coworking community of creative minds.

If it wasn’t for the support of this community, I would not have started my various businesses. It takes a village of a support system to live a creatively courageous life. Reach out if you’re interested over on friendsworkhere.com

ps: Here’s a recent 99u article about FRIENDS.

“My Little Piece of Privacy”

Thank you Body

Thank you body,
for teaching me how to love, me
for showing me my deepest depths

thank you body,

to keep showing up
to keep saying yes.
