From Free Smoothies to LIVE Radio time with Scout Bartlett

I met Scout at the New Living Expo while I was out to get free samples at a smoothie stand. He was a big bear of a dude, wearing a purple suit, purple boots and purple beard to match. We get into conversation and he offers to give me a powerful energy reading and meditation. l let my guards completely down, I feel open, expansive, powerful, light, and clear, close to tears at the end of it.

I gift him an Awareness reMINDmeband from my wrist (also purple!) and tell him about my mission, how I interview people to share life nuggets about humanity. He looks at me for 5 seconds and says “I’ve got a crazy idea” andinvites me to his morning radio talkshow so I can do a raw interview with him there. Apparently, I was talking to the host of the longest running Personal Growth radio programs in the nation. 

Sparks of electricity ran throughout my system as I stared into the mic and felt the energy of 15,000 listeners on the other end. And as I spoke, I was taken aback at how smooth and grounded and sure my voice was as I fell more into my body. I took myself out of control and spoke from the heart about my project and directed my attention solely on him. At the end, I had his endorsement of my work and my craft of how intimate the whole experience had felt from his side.

So lesson learned: Listen to the voice. Go for free samples if that’s your desire. Be generous with your time and attention.  Feel the impact of every small to big thing you do. #POWER

purpose

Finding my PURPOSE at the Envision Festival

I followed my passion and do what I love to do. I wander and interview people from all walks of life and learn as much as I can about the human experience. I do this to asking a simple question: "What are your top 5 values?" By expressing curiosity, placing exquisite attention, and holding space, I connect with and help people unearth who they were, who they are, and who they want to be....

BAND CHALLENGE WEEK 1: BALANCE

I could by stereotyped as "lost millennial" but hey, who isn't? I'm embracing my uniqueness as I am totally killing it with change. Maybe it still seems like I am “all over the place” but I'm happy to say I'm in a more balanced “exploration mode” where I can nourish my interests and creativity and not be so crazy into making immediate decisions right away.
