👉 New book in the community: “Fire The Haters” by Jillian Johnsrud
Excerpt about the book: Sharing your creative and entrepreneurial ventures online can feel like traversing a rough and uncharted ocean. Full of setbacks and obstacles that might sink your ship.
Unless you have an experienced friend to help you navigate it. Someone who will show you the ropes and share the map. Pulling from the collective wisdom of creatives and entrepreneurs of every strip, Jillian compiled this guide book.
If you ever wanted to go out to coffee and “pick the brain” of someone who has successfully navigated this creative entrepreneurial life, this is your chance. All for the price of two lattes.
We will deal with your three big stumbling blocks:
- Online Critics: How do you “fire the haters” and create boundaries online to keep you working, healthy and productive?
- Inner Critic: From imposter syndrome to fears of what friends and family might think.
- Failure, fear and finding the courage to create: Cancel culture, recovering from failure and how to stay in the game.

👉 Money, mindset, and manifesting:
Three things that have helped me with my money mindset in the past year, and that I frequently return to, are:
- I can choose a new thought at any time (and everything that exists once began as a mere thought)
- A thought just needs to be 51% believable
- Envy = evidence. Take others’ achievements as proof of what’s possible.
Manifesting brings opportunities your way.
