Your voice

Finding and freeing your voice (on any level) can be tough, especially amidst the noise of today…but that’s no reason to stifle it, whether you express your voice through written words, beautiful melodies, or presentations.

Breath is essential to all of us (for obvious reasons) but in life and business, creating breathing room to tend to the things that matter most, is key. As a singer and voice-over artist, breathing techniques and exercises are a core part of my regime and coaching career to help others beyond music.

Helping vocalists and busy founders find refreshment through a series of energizing and specific breathwork exercises in workshops and online sessions is something that’s shaped my approach to coaching into something more meaningful.

Is your business in focus and wellness regime blurry or the other way around?

Your pace

When you love what you do, you can sometimes forget it’s work, and leave moments of refreshment out of the picture.

Working on your artistry takes time – so does building a business and sometimes it’s easy to get carried away with one or both when you’re riding an inspirational wave, taking care of client work while forgetting to tend to your own, chasing dollars, being busy, or scrolling away. We’re not meant to live as a hostage to time.

It’s time to stop spinning and start winning, sis.

Wellness

What does contentment (not to be confused with complacency) look like for you, in and beyond business?

Mindset

Coming from and living in Barbados (where many come to relax and ‘free-up’), I’m constantly reminded to appreciate and enjoy the tropical ambience, beautiful views and interesting venues ‘Bim’ has to offer, even when the pace is up…

What are some of the things you enjoy about wherever you are? Are you purposely carving out time to include them in the design of your day? Just a gentle question with a light reminder that your health, wellness and joy matter.

 

 

 

In 2012, when I pressed pause on a lifelong travel journey to start working (mostly) from home, it was a challenge that brought a new set of lessons, a fresh set of skills and time to start and maintain this blog.

You can miss a lot when you’re constantly on-the-go.

It wasn’t easy – the tempo change and work-from-home lifestyle but it was just what I needed to rekindle my relationship with writing (something other than songs.)

Enter ‘Joy withinblog in March 2013, which started as a one-page assembly of poems, recipes and pics from outdoor adventures. Now, with 200+ posts of content and readers from 24+ countries (thank you!), what started as an online hobby has grown into a resource hub that serves a creative freelancer community and harmonizes well with my coaching business.

your business

 

Let’s make the connection between business and wellness ’cause you are so much more than products, services, dollars and cents and your life has a purpose beyond to-do lists.  

 

Your business is not meant to yank you around or shoulder-push you from one task to another.

I almost eeked all the joy

out of my artistry working around the clock 24/7…until a wake-up call came.

It wasn’t until I lightened the tight grip on my dream to only be a singer

that I remembered the passion for writing, launched a career in publishing, discovered

the adventure of blogging 

and learned how to harmonize words and music to compose this creative career I enjoy and serve others through. It was more a case of surrender than strategy, but with Romans 8:28 on my mind and tucked into the hem of my heart, content is now both a life priority as well as a business engine.

 

Your creative gifts and an endless river of grace can propel you places in life & online.
