The Art of Creation Through Desire w/ Regena Thomashauer

About 7 years ago, I sat in a hotel ballroom near Times Square with my jaw nearly on the floor.

The lights were dim. On stage, a woman was lying naked on a massage table while a small camera projected the image of her hoo-ha on a jumbo screen to a standing-room only crowd of nearly 300 people.

“So, what we’re seeing now is the vulva. And along here, these are the vaginal lips…”

For the next 15 minutes, the audience (comprised of roughly 75% women and 25% men) sat in complete silence with laser-like focus as my powerhouse friend Regena Thomashauer, delivered an exquisitely profound and enlightening real-life lady-parts tour.

It was nerve-wracking and, ultimately, awe-inspiring.

When the tour was over, the woman on the table was thanked and gently wrapped in a robe. The crowd erupted into a highly emotional standing ovation.

It was perhaps, one of the first and only times in my adult life that I witnessed such a deft and intelligent group excursion into what’s (insanely) a taboo topic: anatomy and sexuality.

The best part?

Every man in the room was on his feet, wiping away tears and applauding with the fiercest sense of honor, respect and reverence for women that I’ve ever seen.

As an advocate for girls and women’s rights world-wide, I could not have been more moved.

This segment was just one part of a deep and thorough curriculum delivered by Regena Thomashauer (a.k.a. Mama Gena) through her wildly successful business, The School of Womanly Arts.

In today’s episode, you’ll learn exactly how Regena took her once out-there dream, a multitude of talents, and a deep desire to make a difference and found a way to turn them into the brave and transformative work she’s known for today.

I think you’ll find her approach to giving birth to your dreams to be wonderfully refreshing. Especially in our hyper driven, no-pain-no-gain culture of overwork.

As I’m writing you, the only sounds I hear are the gentle rustling of bamboo leaves and the song of a happy bird outside my window.

It’s truly a magical summer here in Sag Harbor and I feel extremely grateful to be here and share a bit of my joy with you.

Should I Take The Safe Job or Do What I Love?

It’s a question millions of people around the world struggle with. When I was first starting my career, I wrestled this hairy beast too.

People rarely succeed at anything unless they have fun doing it. - Dale Carnegie Click To Tweet

Safe job vs. DREAM job.

Do you take the “sure thing” that’s going to pay the bills, or do you take a leap of faith and follow that small voice inside that has a direct line to your heart.

Are You Too Old To Do What You Love?

Have you ever wondered whether or not you’re “too old” to do what you love?

Age insecurity is a stubborn mental block that prevents many would-be superstars from achieving massive success.

If you’ve ever been paralyzed by thinking you’re too old – or too young – to do what you really want to do, I can relate.

More on that in this week’s video.

Here’s a little pre-Valentine’s Day biz nugget for you. And yes, there’s more rapping.

Look. If you’re anything like me, you spend a lot of time with your business.

Like a whooole lot.
