of your lifestyle
your career + purpose

your sense of connection + community
Connection has always been a catalyst for me. I'm one of those people who can create a deep connection with just about anyone.
I see beauty, inspiration + endless possibility everywhere, and I believe that even the most unlikely things can be interconnected.
This love of connection, and deep fascination with language as the connective tissue, led me to start writing at a very young age.
I can remember moving cross-country to New Jersey as a little girl, barely knowing anyone, and selling hand-written, hand-illustrated, hand-bound stories on the sidewalk in front of my house. Not lemonade, books.
I started getting my writing published around the age of 11 and dove into just about any creative endeavor I could find. I pursued performing arts for a while, participated in competitions, and almost started a career in music, but something held me back. I couldn't yet pinpoint what it was, and I meandered through a series of corporate roles that felt
safe but lackluster.
Although I always carved my own path + created new positions imbued with creativity, I knew I was meant for more.
So I left corporate. I didn't want the office life anymore. But I didn't want to just pour out onto an audience, either.
I wanted to interact on a deeper level. I wanted to create, to collaborate, and to inspire. I wanted to guide.
For 7 years I guided people to the creative solutions that best suited their expanded visions for the future, whether through website design, email marketing, blogging, or something else. But as I embarked on my own personal journey of self-discovery and evolution, something dawned on me: I had begun playing small.
I was comfortable offering corporate services with freelance flair, but it was no longer lighting my fire.
So I decided to burn it down. First it was 25 Hours Consulting. Then that company got a digital makeover with a website that felt like version 2.0, but no real change was made. I was still holding on. Reawakening to the spark within is only the first step. Walking away from familiarity is hard. One of my favorite quotes is "you cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."
My comfy, well-worn freelancer badge was the shoreline that needed to fade into the distance as I swam toward the horizon. Side note: I can't actually swim, but it's a metaphor. You know where I'm going with this.
From the ashes of 25 Hours Consulting, Guidepost Creative was born. The name aligned perfectly with my aspirations to creatively guide. It's still taking shape, and I'm comfortable with that.
Sometimes living in the questions is the only way to find answers.
We can't always solve for the variables, and we don't have to.
To try on as many different identities (or careers) as we do outfits.
We get to be anything and everything while simultaneously deciding what we don't want to be.
I no longer wanted to be a freelance provider of corporate skills for the masses.
Especially not in a way that left no room for my intuition or for my own desires to be met and utilized.
Instead, I wanted to facilitate the kind of personal awakening + journeys of self-discovery that have transformed my entire mindset and reality. And in the process of doing so, then and only then will I recommend creative solutions for specific individuals from a place of alignment. Because that's how the work takes on meaning and becomes special.
