I love Ted Talks

So here are some highly recommended  Ted Talks videos that’s very relevant to what I teach in my coaching sessions.  Must watch!

Sir Ken Robinson: Do Schools Kill Creativity?

Brene Brown: The Power of Vulnerability

Amy Cuddy: Your Body Shapes Who You Are

Shawn Acher: The Happy Secret to Better Work


Some of you seem to misunderstand what I do on a regular basis. What you all see is the singing, the band, the coaching and the jam which is awesome….but what most of you do not see is: marketing me and marketing my business, meeting/networking with potential clients, taking calls from corporate clients and students, scheduling students, writing up and sending quotes to corporate clients, negotiating contracts, writing up and sending contracts, creating invoices, scheduling band members, arranging sound equipment, setting up equipment, tearing down equipment, shooting and editing promo videos, updating my website, researching, subbing in with other bands, learning new tunes, session recordings, voice over/acting auditions, photo shoots, memorizing/learning scripts, video shoots, songwriting, meetings with sponsors, negotiating and sometimes renegotiating with venue owners, promoting my public gigs, troubleshooting, resolving conflicts, and soooooo much more.

I love what I do. Although it comes with big highs and huge lows, I love the results of my hard work…but please never assume that my life is like an episode of Disney. I work my tail off to pay my bills and exceed client expectations. My singing may look effortless but there is serious hard work behind it.Sometimes a girl’s just gotta vent…:)
