FOR MY ARTISTS: GAME OVER

This week I realized that I'd gotten sucked into an old pattern: making myself small to fit into someone else's box. Like so many artists to come before me, I fell into the trap: I tried to be what they wanted me to be. And in doing so I became a victim of the very...

SATURDAY NIGHTS – #bts of content creation

This is what nearly every saturday evening is like at chez Joseph nowadays: me getting super duper inspired, listening to rock and roll from the 70s and 80s, drinking chai teas with butter in them (that I blend in a blender), and working on my laptop to prep for the...

MY TRUTH #INTERNATIONALWOMENSDAY

Shouts to all of my sisters pursuing their goals and dreams in 2018. Cheers to the women who, in the words of Maya Angelou, will not "be moved"; who will not conform or stand down to satisfy the values of an outdated patriarchal world order. There is a spectrum...

If Mental Illness is the Root, Guns are the Weeds

When the head of the NRA says that gun control advocates "hate individual freedom," I think of mourning mothers in New Jersey, grieving families in Florida. If wanting your child to have the chance to grow up makes you a freedom-hater, what does that make those in...

Thoughts on the Western Education Model

I found this quote online and it made me laugh. You know what they should teach kids in school? Meditation. Self love. How the stock market works. Or maybe each kid should just get to choose what they're interested in and STUDY THAT. The current standardized American...

Time’s Up

"1 in 3 women ages 18 to 34 have been sexually harassed at work." Yes, this has happened to me. "White women are paid 8/10ths what white men make for the same job." Yes, this has happened to me. Between djing and modeling I have been pushed to the near brink of...

Lawless Times – Food for Thought

It’s a lot. It’s a lot every single day. I was in a movie theater yesterday and the fire alarm went off. Heart pounding, my first thoughts were, “Has there been a shooting? Do we need to evacuate?” It was a false alarm, thank God, but I was struck by my own reaction...

In Light of Recent Events… #newfeminism

I feel SO lucky to be a woman in 2017. And, as headlines this week have proven, there is still a ways to go in terms of eradicating #sexism in America. Assuming that a woman is available based on her appearance is misogyny. Marginalizing, or making a move on her...

Permission

Giving yourself permission to be on the outside who it is you feel you are on the inside requires courage, commitment, stamina and a deep desire for authenticity. It's hard to break free of the lies we told about ourselves before we knew they were lies (think about...

Sexy Self Expression: The Struggle Is Real.

Yesterday I had a conversation with a dear friend of mine who made some comments about the fact that my Facebook has seemed “sexual” lately. He insinuated that this new look might potentially be damaging to my coaching practice, and reflected to me that I am so much...
