“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.

HAPPINESS BOOSTER # 7: The Art of Savoring
|| WORD || I don’t spend time wondering what might be next; I just focus on trying to savor every day. ~ Trisha Yearwood
One of my absolute favorite happiness interventions is the art of savoring positive things. The more you savor the stickier things get inside your brain and the more lasting and more positive it’s impact.
Creating a POSITIVE PORTFOLIO is one way to savor positive experiences. It’s intended to be a verbal, visual, and auditory collection of materials that make you feel something deeply, whether it’s joy, courage, gratitude, serenity, pride, amusement, inspiration, awe, or love.
Maybe you’ve got huge concerns in front of you with projects and travel and work and health related stuff – savoring more could really help.
HOLDING A VISION + POSSIBILITY = FOCUS
Select a particular mental state that will positively impact and support your life right now. Decide on a mental state, an attitude, or a feeling that you would like to embrace and experience more often.
What are you curious about? Take time to consider the things that move and interest you.
Curate all that is relevant:
objects and good words that can be included in your positive portfolio.
Once you’ve gathered everything, place your collection on your phone, on Instagram, in a blank journal, or whatever container works best for you.
Keep it somewhere you can appreciate and savor regularly and update whenever needed.
This is the day to be glad.

What’s Not Wrong – A Mindfulness Meditation
We should learn to ask, “What’s not wrong?” and be in touch with that… If we block ourselves, if we stay in the prison of our sorrow, we will not be in touch with these healing elements.
