How's your internet home treating you? Are you loving it, hating it, indifferent towards it, or ... not making it?

If you've ever wanted to start a blog, write an e-book, or create your own online home powerhouse to showcase your creative ideas, then it's time to make it happen. I'm thrilled to announce a LIVE evening workshop with some of my favorite people (@Holstee!), an extra-special co-teacher that I happen to adore — and be, well, married to.

And — YOU, of course!

If you're in New York on Monday, October 20th, you're invited to the Holstee laboratories in Brooklyn for an evening event focused on crafting your voice, your art, and your work — and translating it to the online world. The Holstee studio and company, home to the to the globally-loved This is Your Life manifesto, are focused on mindful living practices and creating art, experiences, and opportunities to change the way people look at life.

Do what you love and do it often — @Holstee twitter bird

In our first-ever LIVE class together, my husband Alex and I are going to be teaching a workshop focused on creating your own online home — and navigating all the tools and opportunities to discover how to best showcase you and your work in this increasingly noisy (internet) world.

There has never been a better time to have your voice heard and your work seen.

From book publishing and graphic design, to content strategy and thought leadership, Alex and I have each spent over a decade working in communications, design, and publishing — and we're bringing these goods to a private, 20-person laboratory style event. Think of it as a guided session built around our best-knowledge combined with all your questions.

Join us at the live event! We'll look at:

  • Understanding where you want to go and what tools you can use to get you there;
  • The nuts-and-bolts for creating great graphics, imagery, and words to reflect your personality and soul.
  • How to hone your voice with Sarah's "content strategy toolkit" to help make writing easier, more manageable — and published!
  • Best-practices for working with designers to execute your vision — distilling Alex's experience in the industry working as a designer and design strategist with global leaders;
  • The art of creating your online home and how to craft a meaningful space that resonates with who you are.

Want to create an online home that you love?

By the end of the evening, you will have practical insights for how to develop your own online space in a way that feels uniquely YOU.  From what to write about to how to create imagery that stands out in the crowd, this workshop is perfect if you want to get started on (or revamp) that project you can't stop thinking about.

All the details —

Monday, October 20th. 7:00 - 9:30 PM.
Brooklyn, New York City.

You don’t have to do it alone. [an epic resource + event + spiritual program guide.] All my favorite programs for you, right now.

Many of us want similar things in life. Freedom. Love. Money. Safety. Security. Happiness. Depending on where you are in Maslow’s theoretical hierarchy of needs, your next immediate problem might either be finding a meal to satiate your hunger—or it might be reaching out to new meetup groups to make more friends. It might be heading out onContinue Reading

Want to be a better storyteller? Two new online workshops, April 24th and 29th.

Humans are born storytellers. The way we tell and share our stories about who we are, what we do, and what we want affects who sees us, hears about us, and whether or not the right people connect with us. If you want to learn how to describe yourself or your business (or both), joinContinue Reading

How do you combat loneliness? A brand new talk at ALIVE in Berlin + an epic scholarship opportunity worth $400.

How do you deal with loneliness? The problem with my first job wasn’t the job itself—it was how few people I knew at the company. In most structures throughout my life—family, school, college, sports—we bonded as teammates and community members because of shared goals, ideas, and dreams. Yet at work, I barely had friends. PerhapsContinue Reading

I teach several writing courses as a tool to gain insight into your inner wisdom, access your inner soul, and pen your own stories. If you’ve been itching to write, yesterday I shared several of my favorite resources in the March edition of my behind-the-scenes newsletter. Today, I’m excited to share aContinue Reading

Are you itching and ready for change? So many beautiful ways to start the new year. Here are a few programs and classes I love.

I have a confession to make. I signed up for three courses this January, and I’ve got so many notebooks and pens and pencils out that I’m doing geeky little dances around my apartment, although my apartment keeps getting messier and messier. Magazines, scissors, glue, crafts? Check. Class on financial awareness and making money as aContinue Reading

Let’s Go For A Walk and Talk: Experiments in a Creative Series.

“Modern literary theory sees a similarity between walking and writing that I find persuasive: words inscribe a text in the same way that a walk inscribes space. In The Practice of Everyday Life, Michel de Certeau writes, ‘The act of walking … is a process of appropriation of the topographical system on the part ofContinue Reading

World Domination Summit: Day 2 and Beyond

Sometimes I get caught up in the whirlwind of the weeks that it’s hard for me to find time to sit down and write my posts – it’s been about a week and a half since the epic second rendition of WDS concluded, and I went straight back to work,  followed by a  weekend spentContinue ReadingContinue Reading

Life Doesn’t Always Go According to Plan… Hospitals, Applications, Hackathons, and Other Adventures.

Image from Murray Mitchell. OVERWHELMED. That’s the word of the week. First: I am grateful. For you. ALL of you. You’re stunning. More updates on the Start Something Project project in just a bit. As you know, it—LIFE—sometimes doesn’t go exactly as planned. Scratch that – it never goes according to plan. Yet here was the planContinue ReadingContinue Reading
