What happens when we forget about magic?

What happens when we forget about magic?

Yesterday I treated myself to a movie, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them by J.K. Rowling. I loved it and highly recommend the movie. Without giving you spoilers, there’s a traveling wizard named Newt who meets up with a non wizard (or “nomag”) baker named Jacob and takes him to a very magical place. So there’s a conversation at...

My Own Identity Crisis… Vulnerable Share

My Own Identity Crisis… Vulnerable Share

Are there times you’ve felt totally misunderstood even though you’re on the verge of such an incredibly important breakthrough that it could literally change the world? Do you feel like you are SO CLEAR that you are here for a specific and unique purpose, but you’re afraid nobody will get it? That’s what’s been going on with me over... [Read more...]
George Harrison Authentic Pioneer

George Harrison Authentic Pioneer

“Blessed is he whose fame does not outshine his truth.”  ~ Rabindranath Tagore (One of George Harrison’s favorite poems, read by wife Olivia while accepting her husband’s induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame) George Harrison was always my favorite Beatle, but he was more than a rock star to me. Looking back it’s difficult to... [Read more...]
I Was Afraid to Share This

I Was Afraid to Share This

I consider authenticity one of the highest values in my business and in my life. Ever since I was a small child, I told it like it was, even if it meant getting punched by my older brothers (who were always trying to control me!) “You’re not the big boss of me!” was my favorite saying, and I said it often. When I got older, I spoke truth... [Read more...]
Why I Love the IRS

Why I Love the IRS

Today I love the IRS. It hasn’t always been this way. Even just recently I was feeling very negatively toward our tax agency because they were telling me I neglected to file when I had proof that I filed and paid, and they were charging me some $1,500 due to my purported negligence. So I had reason to hate them. In fact I was resisting the... [Read more...]
I’m Outraged and I Won’t Be Silent

I’m Outraged and I Won’t Be Silent

I was in tears for two days when I discovered there are 27 Million people in the world TODAY who are suffering in slavery. That's double the total number of people enslaved in the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade of the 1600's - 1800s. I learned about this from a video fellow rebel Angie Capri posted in the Rebel Marketing Facebook Group. I might... [Read more...]
Don’t Believe the Hype

Don’t Believe the Hype

I think the worst thing about hypey marketing trends is that they rob people of an opportunity to connect to what really matters. Marketing can be a platform for both sharing and receiving pertinent information and inspiration. But more often than not, the advertisements and websites we see every day are either a generic description of services or... [Read more...]
Can Your Website Transform Your Life?

Can Your Website Transform Your Life?

Most of the time we think about marketing as a mundane activity, not an opportunity for self-expression, much less one with the power to transform our lives. The reason for this is that most traditional marketing is designed to coerce a person into taking an action they didn't want to take in the first place, or to fool a person into buying...

Being a Prosperous Freak: How Being Different Makes You Prosperous

Being a Prosperous Freak: How Being Different Makes You Prosperous

Have you ever wondered why it is that a vast majority of business and marketing advisors urge entrepreneurs to conform in multitudinous ways, and yet when you think about it, everyone you know who is truly prosperous is a complete original? These original souls probably received very little encouragement at first because nobody had ever done... [Read more...]
What Can Lenin Teach Us About Authenticity?

What Can Lenin Teach Us About Authenticity?

Lenin on stage during the 1917 Russian Revolution. Colorized by Julia Stege Back in the ‘way-day’ (in my late 20s) I used to be a full-time revolutionary. I spent day and night studying up on ideas of freedom, the voices of rebels throughout history, especially what worked and what didn’t work about what they did. I worked with a group... [Read more...]
