In January, I quickly devoured the book Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It has been such a huge influence on me so far in 2016, as an entrepreneur and in motherhood and friendship. It gave me "permission" to go for my dreams and to stop being so afraid of failure and to just GO FOR IT, whatever that may be. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend you do, it is a serious game changer. I recommend it to anyone, even those who don't consider themselves the "creative type". Trust me on this one, it will help you to be brave in many many ways.
Earlier this week, I mentioned Jess Lively and her fabulous podcast. I can't say enough about it, it has been so helpful for me and has encouraged me through this process of starting a business and finding my true values. Jess recently had Elizabeth Gilbert on the show, and it was a fantastic episode that you should definitely listen to. Both of these women have influenced me so positively, and helped me to go for it and reach out to Jess Lively to talk to her on her podcast, and she said yes! We chatted about how much I love Squarespace, which is the web tool I used to build the LaFabère website and this blog. Head on over to the podcast and listen to our chat! It's at the very end the fabulous episode with Barrett Brooks. It's quick, but it was so much fun to talk with Jess, a real treat and a major highlight for my year.
