I’ve been mulling around this question in my head for the past few months – what makes people (including me!) resistant to learning something new, or trying something they’ve never tried? When this “something” could be life-changing for them? There are a few reasons I came up with… 1) Initial judgment about said “thing” and […]

What is PermissionLESS?
PermissionLESS is a community, a podcast, a place for us to expand beyond the confines of what society deems the norm. I was hit with the word, the idea, and the concept late one night. By midnight, I bought the domain and started building out the site, and within a week, reaching out to guests to be on the podcast. To say this is anything short of my “baby” would be an understatement, as it’s deeply personal.
It’s is a place for anybody who crosses the threshold of creativity, artistry, and business. The purpose is to explore the mindset, thought process, guts, and support systems behind living boldly and making calculated risks; spending some time in the jungle along side these fearless guests exploring their journeys. It was initially dreamt up from a selfish whim; I’m completely fascinated with hearing people’s stories, and also understanding the how and why behind bold and risky moves, because it inspires and motivates me to keep on pushin’ when sometimes it feels like I don’t know what the hell is on the other side of the door I’m knocking on. As such, I created this as an excuse to not only listen to these stories first-hand, but to also share their stories with you.

Who are you, really? 🥸 A short pondering on identity
A series of questions to set the stage for this post: When you think of yourself, what are the words you would use to describe you? When you describe who you are to someone else, what are the words you would use? When someone else describes you and you’re there, what words would they use? […]
The Amateur vs. Pro
I was flipping through one of my fave books this morning called “Turning Pro” by Steven Pressfield. This book talks about the idea of the amateur vs. the pro and how they show up differently when it comes to work and life. I stopped on this section and gave me a reminder deep in my […]
As creatives, entrepreneurs, and dream conquerors, we’re often told to be more realistic. To be careful. That nobody “gets” what we’re doing.
And sometimes… just sometimes, that’s enough to make us doubt ourselves. We wait for that invisible “yes” when the yes belong to us.
We’re manifestors, you and I. Creators of something from nothing. Alchemists of our own reality. We have the choice to choose ourselves every day and push these dreams further.
So, I challenge you.
Stop asking for permission.
Lean into the next level S H I F T.
I challenge you to listen to your intuition, because she’s a smart one. Know that you have the ability to accomplish anything you put your heart and mind to. A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G.
I challenge you to create and craft your future, star by star. To grow beyond yourself, to break the “traditional”, because you’re everything but.
I challenge you to let the inner artist lose from within, the world needs it.
I challenge you to ignite the entrepreneur in you, to set it ABLAZE.
To say yes to yourself. Know that for every one chance you take, the universe will match you.
I challenge you to break through the invisible walls and ceilings and take the leap.
I challenge you to live with boldness, bravery, integrity, and confidence.
