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

May Summer Wrap Around You Like a Warm Blanket

|| WORD || Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair. ~ Susan Polis Schutz

WHY YES! There is something magical and creatively empowering about summer.

We get to celebrate this time of year simply by pausing in the garden, going barefoot, and tapping into long, hot summer afternoons.

This summer…

1. What will you do for PLEASURE?

Research shows that reading for pleasure is good for the soul — so here’s Oprah’s list of 25 Amazing Beach Reads You won’t Be Able to Put Down!

2. What do you CRAVE?

People who love to eat are the moooost fun — The Kitchn is a daily food magazine published by (the cool founders) of Apartment Therapy.

3. And, what keeps you UP at NIGHT?

The Moon is incredibly fascinating and it will never disappoint you. On warm summer nights you can grab a blanket and go out on a stargazing date — plus 10 other reasons Stargazing is awesome!

Make a Summer List:
Do it because it makes you feel alive.
Do it because it makes you feel warm inside.
Do it because it tastes and smells good.
Do it because it’s 100 degrees outside.
Do it because it’s colorful.
Do it because there’s no winter coats.
Do it because there’s warm sand.
Do it because it’s MAKES YOU FEEL FINE.


It’s All Made Up

I’m a believer in taking massive action and I love the idiom, ‘ just do it.’ I think a full day of sweating from the brow and dirtying ones hands is good for the soul.

I also like to make things. My camera is with me at all times. I play with paper and paste and scratch around for words and ideas in books, music, movies, newspapers, plays, poems, nature and neighborhoods. It’s a push-pull-mash-it-up mindset. A running around and howling at the moon experience.

Life practices are not a one size fits all but here’s one thing I know for sure.

Trust in the little experiment and the dummy run. Get in the habit of creating small projects. It’ll prep you for the big stuff.

I’ve learned from the rehearsal process to show up everyday. To practice and to play big – this is passion at work.

If you love stories, actively listen. Stories are embedded with instructions. Pick up your ears. Quiet now. A muse always leaves clues.

If you’re visually bent, set a beautiful table before your next meal. Or grab a camera and hunt for heart stopping light, motion, and color. Then turn your best photos into LOVE letters and thank you notes.

If you desire more culture, lean into a neighborhood. Explore parks, cafes, and markets. Assign yourself the role of historian and detective. Snoop for local splendor. Bring along a friend and make it a walking tour.

And for big talkers, memorize a historical speech or a poem. Say it out loud. Relish the rhythm. Step into another person’s shoes.

With a bit of wrangling and a serenade, a made up list, (and it’s all made up,) can become a soul-reviving endeavor and a remarkable WOW-project.

The possibility is the seed.
The seed is the source.
And my BE-loved go-getters, the source IS the whole.
