Can’t Be Contained Q & A: Mindfulness, Marriage, and Morning Routines


Welcome to a very special “stripped down” episode of Can’t Be Contained! This week I get into my pajamas, pour myself a cup of tea, and sit down to give listeners a raw and unfiltered update on my life—–as well as answering YOUR questions!

In this back-to-basics episode, I’ll provide an update on the challenges of the past few months, and what brought me through to the other side—-with life lessons in tow of course. This isn’t “The Adversity Episode” however, and with the challenges of an entrepreneurial life there is always pleasure to be found. I’ll dive into where I stand with my latest book, and give details on Wide Awake, the stage show I’m currently producing!

In the midst of all the life updates, I’ll answer listener-provided questions, touching on the realities of planning a wedding with your partner, my personal morning routine, and the constant tension between creative output and the creatives’ worst enemy——time.

So get comfy with me! Make a cup of tea, put some headphones on, and let’s travel back to the roots of the podcast. We’re disrupters at heart here—–and we can’t be contained.
