I just know I’m going to upset somebody with this one. …


The super obvious habits preventing you from your own greatness

There are a bunch of things you are doing, right now, stopping you from leading the life of your dreams.

That’s right. You’re probably one of your greatest success blockers, and you might not know it. Or you know it, and you’re ignoring it.

Shame on you. Boo!

I’m trying…


How much are you unknowingly depositing into your bank of trauma?

We’re all pretty broken people.

Renee, you’ve started again. I’ve literally just started reading the first sentence. Yet, here you are. Showing me my own backside. Yet again.

I honestly have to keep promising that I do these things out of love. Usually, I share the things I’ve experienced first-hand…


There’s something special about that last dollar in the bank

Being broke is the ghetto. Let’s just get that out of the way first of all.

However, it’s useful.

Now I just know your eyebrows are furrowed. Ren, is everything alright? Are you feeling good?

Stay with me now.

I’m not advocating for you to empty your emergency fund, sell…


Conventional wisdom says find a lane and stay in it — here’s why you shouldn’t.

Renee, what do you do?

The perennial question always used to bring me great anxiety. My brow would furrow, followed by a sharp intake of breath and an apologetic smile.

“I err, I do a lot of things.” I’d manage to stammer, usually followed by a confused smile on the…


I hope I get to you before the swarms of hustlers do — the answer might surprise you.

So it must seem a bit stupid to pose such a question. And yet, it’s an important one, because the answer isn’t…


Dealing with writer’s block or lack of motivation? You might need a break.

I have a love-hate relationship with writing.

Yes, I know. I sound like the typical 21st-century artist. Woe is me and my relationship with my gift.

Some days, I love writing. It brings me great comfort, allows me to articulate my thoughts, gives me the creative outlet I need from…


That’s all folks. We made it out of 2020. Alive. Barely. Others were not so fortunate, and many of us have had to deal with the ill effects of their impromptu departure. We’ve dealt with job losses, economic crashes, draconian lockdown and mental health break downs. 2020, for many of…


The hustle and grind sucks…well, most of it.

Don’t let anyone fool you into thinking entrepreneurship is fun. Or easy. Or the greatest experience you could ever have in your life. Being an entrepreneur certainly isn’t for the faint-hearted, and if your heart isn’t in it, it’s not for you.

Now, I’m not saying you need to have…


Yes, it is a thing…and needs to be managed.

It’s 6 am.
