do you deserve your life?
She wouldn’t and couldn’t “have anything” – her life was a confusing mess, and in her view, anyone that messes their life up this much doesn’t deserve anything until they get their shit straightened out. She’d once again left a job to “just clear her head,” confident that she just needed a few months off. […]
claim your career bliss: interview with Chief Penguin Michael Katz
“You have to be willing to accept a pretty big element of ‘we don’t know how this story is going to turn out.’ And I’m not a risk-taker, maybe it looks like I am, but I’m really not … but I have definitely learned to go with the scary choice. If the less scary choice […]
claim your career bliss: interview with Life Coach Tim Brownson
“We ask ourselves: ‘What will I do with my money to make me happy?’ A better approach is to find out what makes you happy and then work out what minimum amount of money you need to do the thing that actually means you’re happy … Bliss is doing the thing you’d do anyway.” –Tim […]
burning question: what’s your superhero name?
If you’re following me on twitter, you already know. I wasn’t hiding it from you. The name when I’m undercover is none other than The Witch of Bliss (@thewitchofbliss). As a sorceress of sorts, I use my prophetic and portal creating abilities in everything I do wherever I go and help others to do the […]

love your strengths and you too can have career bliss
I love the idea of a strength. I especially love the very thought of using my strengths to feel strengthened. And I love Marcus Buckingham and his crew for naming that and championing this evolution in how we view how we work. Question tho’: Why is it so difficult to see your own strengths if […]
on the matter of death + the possibility of birth (like now)
Learned from Vanity Fair that my childhood super crush Michael J. Fox and I have this in common: When it’s our time to go, the grim reaper will find us being licked to death by puppies. It’s a done deal. Decided. My fate is sealed. Who’s with me? Too scary to ponder? Here’s what’s real […]
Unconventional career tools make your old world new again
A relaxed mind that’s having fun acquires, reveals, and contributes way more than a stressed out one. This much you probably already know. My confession is this: Unless I see something or do it for myself – experience it somehow, I have no idea what’s going on. My truth is this: Learning was stressful growing […]
This isn’t about nudity – it’s “on-the-job” exposure
It’s (like seriously long over-due) time to re-imagine our concept of work. Work is not just a means to an end. Real work is about creating a life that integrates all parts of you. Meaning: The simplest thing that you do is your gift to the world. It’s simply how you are. You need no […]
