The feedback that you've given me on this journey has been amazing. Thank you for sharing your dreams, the places where you're stuck and asking me to give some suggestions.
Most of my recent emails have been about the places I've been stumbling around in the dark and what I've learned from all those trips and falls.
From learning how to turn on your heart light and look for goodness that I talked about in [this letter](https://madmimi.com/s/876427) to figuring out what it is we're supposed to be doing here as the stories around us grow darker. I believe the key is to find some compassion and start working from a place of why are you here and what are you supposed to be doing.
I got amazing questions like:
1. I've figured out my passion, but have no idea how to get there. How do I figure that out?
2. I know what I want to be doing, but can't find the time to make the life shift because I have a family and I need to make money...
3. I want to make my own way and stop working for people. I want that freedom, but don't have the skills set to start or sustain a money-making business.
Well, I'd like us to take some time to explore some of this stuff. I got a wonderful letter from one of my actor clients asking if I would do some life coaching. Uh, I don't know if I'd call what I do life coaching, but I will say, I know how to objectively and strategically look at the places in my own life as well as in the lives of the writers/actors that I coach and see where we're repeating the same mistakes, not optimizing our time or thinking outside the box when it comes to problem-solving.
The time we waste repeating mistakes is time we could have used to re-write our stories. Time is a wonderful teacher when she is coupled with wisdom. I know how to look at a room where a hoarder lives and find the jewels that will set you free, so you can toss out the rest.
That I can teach you. How to organize your life to make time, space and money to begin pursuing things that make you happy. Call it whatever you like, I just know it's something, I've worked through and been able to make a living as a self-producing artist, so I know for a fact that it can be done.
The Sharing Circle - a FREE class
To that end, I want to extend a personal invitation to what I'd like to call a Sharing Circle this Sunday, 1/31 at 3pm. This will be a 90 min webinar (you can dial in by phone, skype or facetime). We'll talk about some strategies for figuring out what your goals are for this year and how to break them down into small manageable peices.
And the good news is since you're on my private mailing list, you're invited. The class is absolutely FREE and has a 25 person maximum. You can dial in and just listen and do the exercises on your own or you can participate in the back and forth that we'll have.
How does that sound?
Here's all I ask:
In order to structure this webinar to serve your needs exclusively, I need you to fill out this short survey (it's only four questions).
Each person who fills out the survey is automatically registered for Sunday's class.
Are you ready to do this?
Let's move those dreams from paper to reality in 2016.
