Who are you, really?

In designing and writing these products, I had to consider that even though the problems I’m addressing are common – seeking yourself, seeking your opportunity, seeking a bigger mission, and opening oneself up to voluntary action – I’m not just designing a solution just because I went through them. I’m writing it for very specific types of people, some of them not like me, and some at specific change points in their lives. And so I need a customer avatar for these people.

Where do you land here?

I thought about what kind of person needs my perspective, and who instead needs more practical tools.

Freebie: Improve your present, design your Future, or finally finish something from your past.

After I first started this site over a year ago, I gave away a freebie for opting into my email list (as I still do, of course). How it works: In exchange for your email address, choose the freebie you’re interested in. You’ll then get quarterly/bimonthly emails about what I’m working on.

First things first: due to an incredible amount of spam (I was surprised that people who have lists get fake signups too!), the list has become double-opt-in. That means you’ll have to act on the confirmation email. Then you’ll get a Welcome email from me with your choice of the content modules below.

I’ll share tools and ideas I’ve found and created, and occasionally a whimsical anecdote. You’ll also get a link to something in my shop every time – selected by me or by the magic of MailChimp. There’s no obligation to buy; I hope you feel compelled by the interest or usability factor and that you’ll find my stuff interesting enough to follow me on social media and share my content.
