Overwhelm : you know that place. We all have times when we are in it, we feel it and we don’t know how to get out of it. Well it took hold of me today as I looked at the mess that was my desk, the to do lists, the emails, the plans, the courses and the promises. Do I took a break, spoke to a sister friend ( aka taking a break and getting out of my head) and then just kept moving. The movement was essential to get me to the end of my day. And getting here with a sense of accomplishment. So keep on moving! What do you do when you find yourself in overwhelm? #keeponmoving

The quintessential independent artist and do-it-yourselfer added label owner to her list of accomplishments, when she launched Dtone Victorious in 2014.

On her follow up, 2015’s Flight of The Donn T album, she shares co-production credit with her husband Jake Morelli, a guitarist/producer. The buzz around that album got the attention of CBS and The Grammys who in 2016 highlighted Donn T as an Artist of Tomorrow.

In 1963 at 106 years old William Casby was one of the living African Americans born into slavery. He was 6 years old when slavery ended. It is so humbling and moving to look in his eyes in this photo. Really look. This is at the Richard Avedon exhibit @pacegallery from Avedon’s collaboration with #jamesbaldwin. My favorite quote from #jamesbaldwin is ‘ your crown has already been bought and paid for all you have to do is wear it.’ It is the Mr Casbys who have paid a huge cost. Thank you. #deepgratitude
Going places: There are some days when my work is all about my clients ( that was Thursday)and then there are some work days where it’s about creating my future work. Friday was one of those days. We create a vision for our lives and then it’s all about closing the gap between that vision and where we are now. I am so grateful to everyone I met who gave me beautiful gifts of wisdom that will help me close the gap. I feel so blessed for really each moment. So many lessons.

A wonderful evening. Don’t you love it when it all comes together. #willtravelforveganfood #veganonthego
A really great day meeting my coaching clients. I walked past this Zaha Hadid Building on my travels. What strikes me about my coaching and why it matters is I am so often supporting my clients to create the life they really want or to be their most authentic self or to be their best self! What’s not to love about my work. #shewerks #coach #ilovenyc
