Fierce Friday: Sweetly Speaking, Mantra Magazine, and Santa!


Hi beauty hearts!

I hope you are enjoying your summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Here at Cool Creative Press, we have been busily preparing our winter inventory for the holiday season. We’ll have some new designs and inspirational merchandise to share with you in the coming months. We’ve also been sprucing up our website to make it more user friendly and easier for our guests to shop our online store. I’m super grateful to have another team member at CCP for the summer. Patrick Williams is interning with Cool Creative Press. For any of you who know Patrick, you know what a rock star he is! At this point, I should probably be the intern.

I am super happy to share the launch of the first podcast season of Sweetly Speaking: Authoring a Fierce Life. You can download Stitcher, Spotify, Apple iTunes and Google Play Music to then subscribe and listen to Sweetly Speaking. You can also download it from the CCP website. Just click the Podcast tab at the top of the Home page.

The podcast is chalked full of inspiration. From a Youngstown coffee roaster, to a PhD. counselor, to a children’s author, to a book sherpa in Cali, to a Heart Centered Hypnotherapist, to a Boardman boutique owner, we have a gamut of fierce stories to share with you. I’ll be heading back to the studio in the coming weeks. I can’t wait to share new inspirational episodes with you!!

The mission of Sweetly Speaking is to help our listeners author a fierce life through sharing creativity, cultivating awareness, and capturing beauty. I believe that we are all authors and we are constantly telling the tales of our lives through the stories we share, the moments with live, the love that we give. It is my hope that this will then inspire you in all avenues of your life. Perhaps you will feel more connected. Maybe you will reach out for more information. And just maybe you will claim authorship of your brilliant life. I love it!

Sweetly Speaking has taught me that life is always knocking at the door of our hearts and asking us to say YES to the opportunities ahead of us. With discernment and kindness, hopefully we allow ourselves to move forward. There’s the egoic part of me that strives for perfection, and then there’s my soul that whispers, “Hey, you’ve got this. Just begin. It’s not about being perfect.”

So, I am beginning. Sweetly Speaking is full of my heart, and I am so excited to share it with you.This podcast isn’t about creating the ‘perfect life,’ it’s about starting where you are and then taking the next fierce step. What would that look like in your life? To me, it’s about having courage and loving ourselves. It’s about being flexible and willing to grown.

I can’t wait to see in two years how this podcast has trickled out into the world. Like my dear guest, Dr. Branch shared with the audience, “Come to the end of your life and be so empty, because you gave so much.” Sweetly Speaking is another vehicle for me to serve!

If you have a moment, please follow Sweetly Speaking and offer a review on whichever podcast platform you listen to? I’d sure appreciate it!
