Beach cottage, Pass Christian, Mississippi

Dance, Work, Meditate, Repeat

While I’d love to spend all of my time sipping lattes at Cat Island Coffeehouse, tasting history-making brews at Lazy Magnolia in the Kiln and photographing Mississippi’s Gulf Coast beach, which I can see from my mailbox, I’m not there yet.

But I’m working on it!

Welcome to my creative space

Here is where I spend much of my time on weekdays in Pass Christian. I’ve turned the sun room of my beach cottage into a full-purpose creative war room and branding studio.

Everything changed when I saw this sun room. It’s just a beach cottage, I was thinking. But I was feeling something more. I actually cried real tears as the owner gave me a tour and the key. Deep down, I knew this would be the place where HerNature would come alive.

This is where I strive to make the “magic” happen, video consulting and meeting with HerNature clients, editing my photography, dreaming as big as I can about how to make an impact in helping others reach their dreams.

I have just enough space to dance to one song every morning and the perfect lime-green perch to meditate every afternoon.

What stirs your soul

Working solo as a brand and career consultant, I’ve learned my workspace needs to be bright and versatile. It needs to be comfortable for face-to-face time with clients. And it has to help energize my soul for those long lonely work days when it’s all up to me.

Do you have a space that feeds your creativity or stirs your soul?

Take a look around your home, inside and out, and see if there’s a nook you can transform into a place of retreat. It’s an important part of nurturing your nature, to help clear your mind and begin to see the path that’s yours to take.

Happy trail blazing,
