Success is Sweetest

“Your support, passion, and no bullshit approach, is such a killer combination. And your method is so creative and exciting in a way that I’ve never, ever found other coaching to be. WOW, wow, wow!” ~ Kana, Career Mentoring Intensive

Hello! I’m Janice. I’m a life coach based in New York.

I help ARTISTS, ACTORS, MAKERS, and SEEKERS start, test, tweak and finish amazing life projects.

This is where you get to translate your amazingness into a tangible, real-world project or life-changing experience. Something so fresh & original, you won’t believe it came out of YOU.

(Hey, so you want to act on Broadway, bike ride through Thailand, or build an Empire? Totally reasonable.)

This is my online home, where all the good stuff happens.

Ha. Who am I kidding? The good stuff happens offline, in real time. But this is where you can get to know me, find out how to WORK & PLAY with me, sign up for NOTES FROM THE TRAIL, and grab a free tool (or two).

I’m so happy you’re here.
Because now we get to make things.
And making things is the sweetest.



A Small Dose Of Sweet Things

It is good to take the Mountain…

In storytelling, as in mythos, a mountain is sometimes used as a symbol to describe the levels of mastery one has to attain before one can ascend to the next level. The lowest part of the mountain, the foothills is thought of in terms of maturing consciousness. The middle part is the steeping process, the part that tests our knowledge learned at lower levels. The higher mountain represents intensified learning; the air is thin, it takes endurance, new skills, and determination to stay the course. And the peak of the mountain represents confrontation with the ultimate wisdom . . . So, it is good to take the mountain when we don't know what else to do . . . . #ClarissaPinkolaEstes #actorslife #thepowerofwow #wardactingstudio #storytelling #mastery . . . #TimothyKnight #KarinSchmid #KarlaHillam

|| WORD || How we spend our days is how we spend our lives. What we do with this hour and that one is what we are doing. There is no shortage of good days. It is good lives that are hard to come by. Who would call a good day spent reading a good life? But a life spent reading that is a good life. Nothing contributes more to our personal and spiritual well-being. ~ Annie Dillard

In the middle of “what’s up next”, read wide:

Surprise yourself with your reading picks
Read deep
Read often
Out read your former self
Build a place of stillness
Seek out pleasure
Stretch beyond what you already know
Take notes

Don’t hoard. Figure out a way to share with others what you’re reading by making and turning it into something else:

A coffee date
A tweet
A compliment
A gift
A theater piece
A monologue
A book club
A blog post
A slow dance
A morning routine
A hot bath
A joke
A walk in the woods
A collage
A short film
A letter to an old friend
A workshop
A meditation
A sabbatical
A vision board
A potted garden
A one pot meal
A photograph
A script
A thank you note
A clean house
A green smoothie
A mission
A list

Enlarge your world by finding connections and hidden possibilites in stories.

(Give freely. Share what you’re reading. Not to impress, but personally, because there’s no other way to plant and root what you’ve learned. )

Now read some more.
