There’s been something inside of you that’s trying to tell you something extremely important. It’s been talking to you since you were a kid and at one point you heard it and did what it said without much thought. And it was glorious! Until someone told you it was stupid and you shut it down. That person/people didn’t know what they were talking about because your inner voice/guidance is and has always been a genius and knows what’s up. Now that you’re an adult the voice may be just a muffled whisper, but it’s still there trying to get your attention. Start to listen to it as that voice is your most valuable consultant. Like millions of dollars an hour valuable. At least. Probably more.
In the song The Rainbow Connection, The Muppets tell it like it is.

People often ask me what I do for “work” and one of the things I do that makes my heart sing is that I lead a virtual coaching program for live music fans called Rock Your Life Mentorship.
The mentorship provides so many amazing things for its participants (like community, accountability, the tools to manifest all the concert tickets you desire) and one of my favorite parts is when we get to connect with the mentors on the phone. Those calls are always magical because the people I pick are heart and soul centered, open and honest and ready to answer any questions that are brought to them by the participants.

We’ve gotten to talk to Oteil Burbridge from the Allman Brother’s Band and Dead and Company, Zach Deputy, Mike Rempel from Lotus, Eli Winderman from Dopapod, Matt Butler from Everyone Orchestra, Brock Butler from Perpetual Groove, Bill Carbone from Max Creek, Ryan Monbleau, Al Smith from American Babies and others.
Rock Your Life Mentorship is starting in November and our first mentor is photographer Jay Blakesberg. If you love live music and have seen photos from shows and festivals, chances are most of the really great ones came from Jay. He’s photographed everyone from the Grateful Dead to Paul Simon to Dave Matthews and everyone in between. His newest book (which I’m featured in) is called Hippie Chick: a Tale of Love, Devotion and Surrender.
