Lamb and Lion

Rain sloshed relentlessly against the walls of the 18th-century barn as our gas fireplace burned hotly. Tucked into deep armchairs—in-between business books, half-eaten macaroons, and mugs of just-brewed hot chocolate—we peeled off our business armor piece by piece, pushed off our metaphorical shields, and allowed ourselves to be seen, really seen, by each other for the […]

“So you don’t want to be a copywriter, then.”

Nikki Groom Big Vision

She looked up at the white board covered in scrawling marker pen and said, “So… you don’t want to be a copywriter, then.” It was three years ago and I was with my then-business coach in a private rented workspace in New York City.

The 100 Stories Worth Telling Project is evolving. Here’s how.

L’Erin Alta: Reclaiming Our Power When Reality Breaks Us Open

L'Erin Alta

They remind me of what’s possible when we free our voices and speak our truth, without apology. I have been connected to L’Erin since 2012, which is a long time in internet years, […]
