Tiny Whisper

I hit a milestone this week and I almost missed it. For these past few weeks, one week has felt almost like a few weeks. This feeling is not boredom. It is the result of daily, mindful progression towards my career goals. Each afternoon/ evening I spend time working on my business plan, working on…

All Signs Point to Yes

I’ve been crying a lot lately. There are many moments where I stop to catch my breath. I have moments of disbelief at the obstacles I have faced and have overcome. I can clearly remember what it felt like to be so lost and feel so alone at times. Oh, the fears I have released…

My Inciting Incident

This past Friday was my 5 year anniversary of moving to Los Angeles (LA). My move was prompted by my desire to further my career in the entertainment industry. In college, once I decided to actually pursue this career (versus dream about it), I knew LA would be in my future. The year before I…
