Facing a Few Fears and Realities

I honestly didn’t (and still don’t) know what to call this week’s episode. Instead of the topic I planned, I took you into my thought process, a few fears, a couple of realization, and no clear resolution. So….life, basically. When forced to face a smutlancing fear, I figured a few things out. Not that I know quite what to do with that information.

Everything is a Process

We almost never have an idea on Monday and reveal a fully fleshed out reality by Friday. It takes time and patience. Along the way, we need to recognize progress and successes as they occur, even if they don’t match the finished picture we have in our heads.

No One Can Decide the Right Path For You

In this episode, I let it get weird and share some of my own thoughts on making shifts, changing paths, and deciding which direction to follow. I share not because I have answers but to show that it’s a messy process.

episode 65 of the Smutlancers podcast discusses having time to reach your goals 2

Give Yourself Time to Accomplish Your Goals

Depending on who you listen to, it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill or it takes ten years to find “success”depending on how you define it. Whether either are true or not, both numbers give me hope. They tell me I’ve got time to achieve my goals and become better at what I do. And I think the same is true for you, too. Try not to be in such a rush and realize that you don’t have to figure it all out right away. Links from the episode: Ask the Smutlancer The Smutlancers Community on Patreon Follow The...

episode 46 of the Smutlancer podcast discusses when to say yes and when to say no to offers 0

When to Say Yes and When to Say No

When you’re first starting out, it’s hard to imagine a time when you’ll get the opportunity to say yes to something or that there will ever be a time when you’ll choose to say no. But both will happen, eventually. There is no single perfect way to know which is the right answer, but there are things to consider when you’re weighing your decisions. For the record, I’ve said yes to things because I didn’t have the privilege of saying no to them. Declining an offer of work for money can, at times, be an absolute privilege. I’ve also benefited...

How to Tell If You’re on the Right Track

A big thanks to Amy of Coffee and Kink for inspiring this particular post. We had a good Twitter conversation (as we often do) that got me thinking. Knowing if you’re on the right track with your smutlancing goals or if you’re just spinning your wheels is a question we all have to face at some point. And we have to reassess periodically because it’s easy to veer off course or do something that’s not actually working. I imagine there are a million ways to figure out if you’re on track towards your goals, but these are the methods I...

redefining success as a smutlancer 4

What Does Success Look Like?

You can blame Cara Thereon (whom I adore) for this one. We got into an amazing conversation on Twitter about jealousy, comparison, and success. From that, this blog post was born. Too many of us see what other people are doing and ask ourselves, “Why aren’t I doing that yet? Will I ever have that level of success?” I do it. You may do it. Even the people you admire are probably doing it. We’ve discussed the comparison game before. It gets under your skin and stops you from moving forward. We perceive someone else has “success” that we want,...

5 Reasons You’re Not Working On Your Smutlancing Dreams

I’m guilty of a very bad habit as a creator. If the stars don’t align just perfectly to give me the perfect parameters that I need to create something – write a blog post, record a podcast, or work on future goals (like course creation and ebooks) – I won’t do it. So what does that mean? It’s too cold (or too hot). I don’t want to write at the kitchen table but Starbucks is too crowded or noisy (or I don’t have money for a coffee). Instead of the hour I want, I only have 15 minutes which means,...
