Hello Smart Passive Income listener!

If you’ve heard me on an episode of the SPI Podcast (episode 215 or episode 360), you know that I have such a penchant for organization and deadlines that I’ve earned myself the nickname “whip-cracker.”
But from those episodes you may not have learned the why behind the work that I do: I believe in telling stories without shame. This means that when we find the courage to share a part of ourselves publicly, we have come to a place where we are unashamed and we are comfortable with all the parts of our story that makes us who we are. This is why I do the work that I do of writing, teaching, and publishing creative nonfiction – it is the very thing that has healed me both emotionally and physically more than once in my life and now I strive to help others do the same.
If this resonates with you, I’d love to connect more deeply and keep in touch. The best way to do that is by signing up for my email list, and when you do you’ll get my free download 30 Days of Write Prompts.
