  • Winning the QUBE Effect People’s Choice Award

    Well the news is out! I won the QUBE Effect People's Choice Award. It was announced live on 612ABC Breakfast Radio with Spencer Howson and it really was a huge shock. I didn't expect an announcement just like that, so I wasn't nervous or even prepared to say anything. Watch the [...]

  • Oh Tassie, how I love thee

There also appears to be a lack of energy [...]

Leadership for Creatives in the New World

Do you want more for yourself and others and this world? Are you a NEW WORLD LEADER? As a musician, artist, creative, entrepreneur on your career path, there is an essential element of leadership involved in having that career. There is no defined career path.

How To Access Creative Joy – A Simple Tool To Keep You Open

Over the last month, I have received so many messages from songwriters calling for help. They are saying things like “I just don't feel great” or “I’m not in a great space right now”. They’re also telling me they haven't written songs in months, maybe even years, and they know that they want to be doing this again.I really empathize with them. I feel for them.
