How to Introduce Yourself at a Dinner Party Like a Cool-As-A-Cucumber BALLER

“So, what do you do?” These are the words WE ALL DREAD, FAM.

Sometimes Wonderful Can Still Be Heavy

I love throwing sh*t out. Love, love, love, love, LOVE it. I throw out high heels and curtains, jewelry and fine china. (Okay so I don’t actually throw it out. I donate it. But the point is, it’s goneeeee.) It isn’t just the physical stuff: I’m also (creepily) good at throwing out old ideas, old identities, and old dreams. […]

Know Who Your Haters Are

Tiffany’s doesn’t try to sell diamonds to a sixteen-year-old girl. Nor are they offended, nor worried, when teens aren’t flocking to their stores. Tiffany’s knows that sixteen-year-old girls most definitely aren’t their market. And I also imagine that, were a sixteen-year-old girl to proclaim that Tiffany’s sucks absolute DONKEY BALLS, they wouldn’t take it to […]

What Does It Mean to Take Care of Yourself, Right Now?

A question I ask myself often: What does it mean to take care of myself right now? It’s FREAKING TERRIFYING how much we do on autopilot. We order the second glass of wine. Stay to be polite. Agree to help! HELPING EVERYBODY! Eat what everybody else is having because you don’t want to make a fuss. Let them talk and talk and […]

Business & Money

Because let's face it: asking for money is hard. And running your own business takes thick skin and all new kinds of smarts. Good thing there's a playlist for that.

MAKE IT POUR >>

Creativity & Creating

Starving artist who? The Internet has changed the game forever. Now you can create your own chances—and make more money than ever with your art—starting now.

HAHA, CUBICLE WHO? >>

Mental Game & Confidence

Go, go, go. If not you, who? The world is relying on you to stand up and create the thing that only you can. Your story, your way, your perspective is unique, and we need you to show up, right now.

WHO'S YOUR DADDY? >>

Overwhelm & Defeat

There are going to be days when you'll want to give up. There will be days when you'll start to doubt EVERYTHING—including, most notably, yourself. I got you, babe. I GOT YOU.

POPEYE THAT SHIT >>

Women & Bravery

Circumstances are not life sentences. It's about learning how to become self-made—and never depend on anyone else again.

PROVE 'EM WRONG >>

Writing & Words

What you SAY is always more important than what you SELL. You can have the best idea in the world, but if we can't package & pitch in a way that turns heads? It falls on deaf ears. And there is no greater tragedy.
