MINDFUL COFFEE Q & A
I like my coffee___________________.
I like my coffee to be tea. ;)
What do you have for breakfast on the good days?
Depends on the time of year. When it's cold, I have eggs/omelettes and fully loaded nut milks with collagen, spices, and oils/ghee. When it's warmer out, I go for juices and smoothies.
What is the best piece of advise you were given when you started your practice ?
To make space for it every day, to make it my priority, and all other aspects of life would fall into place. I have found this to be true, and also to represent the idea of putting my self-care first, before the wants of others.
What is your secret to peace of mind and clarity when it comes to work?
Work with people who share my perspective, or are complimentary to it. The friction only grows, so I don't jump into situations where I "hope it will work out," I wait for flow and ease of communication, and presence. I also take lots of breaks and incorporate fun into the day via movement, tea, healthy food, and meditation. I do the heavy lifting in the mornings (writing, thinking, planning), and try to schedule meetings and more social things in the afternoons, when I could use the energetic support.
What is your favorite tool/ app/software/tip/blog to help you manage or grow your business?
I really like analytics, so I appreciate Google, Facebook, MailChimp and Squarespace analytics...I love looking for themes for how to enhance engagement.
I believe that__________________.
Reminds me of a country song that has been on the radio a lot here in Virginia (I love country music)... god is great, beer is good and people are crazy. We could unpack that, I don't even drink beer...but I like the sentiment.
Do you have a favorite quote?
Favorite, no...quotes strike me at different times in my life, but here are a few that have resonated for a while:
-Never give up, always let go.-Roshan Guru (my yoga teacher)
-Take your broken heart, make it into art. -Carrie Fischer
-The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you, don't go back to sleep. -Rumi
