Listen in on my and host John Lee Dumas’ (JLD to most) “Entrepreneurs on Fire” podcast as we chat about my favorite subject, why creativity is like sex.
“The Creative Life” with James Taylor: Podcast replay
I had such a blast talking to “The Creative Life” podcast founder James Taylor! We talked about a lot of things (and that accent! #Britsrule), but pointedly about why we really do get our best ideas in the shower – I call it “Double D’s“ (dopamine and divergent thinking) in the shower – and more,...

A fresh perspective in creativity: Podcast replay
I recently got to talk with Direct Sales expert Vicki Fitch on her “Fresh Perspectives” Facebook Live podcast about creativity, the importance of laughter and why sex is such a taboo topic to talk about – especially for people of deep faith.

If you have a pulse, you certainly can.
I’ve been asked a lot since I launched my book, “What made you write a book about creativity?” Well, the answer is, because not everyone believes they are creative.

Elvis, the book has left the building
The launch of the long-awaited (for me, anyway) “Be Your Creative Sexy Self”. book has happened, and I couldn’t be more excited.
