Confessions of a Tiny Panamanian Artist With a T-Rex Heart



This is totally embarrasing you guys. I don’t know how April (my business bestie) convinced me to do this. 


Watch my confessional video before I change my mind about sharing it publicly + delete it forever.



Now it’s your turn to make a confession. Spill open in the comments. Bonus point if you feel like a loser for sharing. That means it’s probably a good one. 


And I promise I won’t think you’re a loser. I mean, did you see me dancing in my onesie?


Thanks for sharing. Love you even more when you do.

6 Tricks to Make Your Pricing a Non Issue

6 Tricks Pricing


PRE-S: Operation World Domination is coming up. I’m co-hosting a live Happy Hour call on Feb 22 at 3PM EST with my partner in crime April Bowles. Bring your questions + favorite cocktail. It’s totally free and should be so much fun. Save your seat!


As a full time artist, I’m a big advocate of charging what you’re worth. NO! not swapping work for exposure. I mean trading work for money honey.


This isn’t a cute hobby folks, it’s how I pay for groceries (and cute shoes).


But I know putting a price tag on your work is scary. What will people think? That I’m full of myself? Will I turn them off? Will they go to Walmart instead?


Today I’m going to give you 6 things you should do that will make your price a non-issue.


To recap what I talked about in the video:

  • Define your ideal client’s problem
  • Show the solution
  • Focus on the results
  • Make a clear offer
  • Add testaments to your awesomeness
  • Remove risk   

Do these 6 steps + see how price becomes irrelevant.


Thanks for watching.


If you’re ready charge what you’re worth (without pulling your hair out) + step into your zone of genius, check out Operation World Domination: A Mastermind for Creatives & Innovators.


I know you can’t possibly buy everything you see on the internet. But! If you’re planning on treating yo’ self + investing in business acceleration this year, we promise you, this is it!

I Don’t Like Picking A World Of The Year, But If I Must, This Would Be It

Word of the year


Did you get brain washed into picking a word of the year?


Spoiler alert: I did.


I mean, I see the charm of setting a self-fulfilling prophecy word, the kind of theme word to help set goals + intentions for the upcoming twelve months. I get why people everywhere go Coo Coo for Cocoa Puffs for this ritual. 


The part I can’t wrap my finger around is the practical aspect of this. How the hell do people pick ONE, just ONE word? Really? Is that even possible? Who can make that kind of long-game commitment? My respects to them. Seriously.


I’ve never been able to make that kind futuristic declaration, until I pretended this was a life n’ death reality show where my survival depended on an answer. And then, the word magically descended from the heavens. Amen!


If you’re curious to know which word I picked, play the video!



If you had to pick a world of the year, what would be it?


As always, thanks for watching + helping me spread the word.


Talk to you soon.

Ask Yourself This Question And You Will Never Go Hungry Again!



What’s the point of being you’re own #girlboss if you’re broke?




Being a creative entrepreneur is not a cute hobby. It’s how you make a living + pay bills. If you’re not making money, then what you have in an expensive pastime. And that’s cool, but know the difference. 


Today’s episode is short + sweet, specially dedicated for my folks struggling to turn their multi-passions into profit.


Ask yourself this question and you will never go hungry again:



You’re now 3 pounds lighter. No juice cleanse needed. You’re welcome.


Thanks for watching + helping me spread the word.


Talk to you soon.
