This podcast is all about your work in the world. It also comes from my weekly public radio show on KSFR 101.1. Popular guest Paul Zelizer talks with me about the importance of economic diversity, “waking up at work,” values-based leadership, and conscious business. It’s a potentially world-changing conversation!

How does it feel? Taste? Where are you cultivating it? Where is it lacking in your life?
Make a collage about it. Do Morning Pages around it for a month (listen to the Julia Cameron podcast above if you’re not familiar with Morning Pages). Dance with it.
Let it work you for a while. Just notice what you notice. And, for heaven’s sakes, please … have some fun with it!

I came to Melanie expecting standard coaching, but instead found her insight and wisdom led me to rethink my path.
I was not truly happy with the direction I was heading, but it was Melanie’s patient, skillful questioning that turned my life around. Her kind and thoughtful guidance has changed so much for me.
