You hurt yourself when you don’t honour your unique differences and traits.

If you canvas other people for answers, you're depriving yourself of your own creative ideas that could lead you to new answers. It’s a mistake to look to somebody else to have it all already figured out. This constrains your choices to solutions other people have thought up. Far better to explore your own unique ways of thinking, your own unique brain chemistry, your own emotional makeup, your own thought patterns, your own way of piecing things together, and all the experiences you've had that inform your ideas. Only you have access to this wealth of insights, information and lived wisdom.

Join me for this episode to hear my prescription for three practices that will help you access the gold in you.


I’m pleased to introduce my briefest 1:1 coaching experience to date, “Expansive Creativity in 3 Steps”. This is a mini, life altering, custom, online experience that will unleash your full creative expression in just 3 sessions. The program is for you if:

you have something specific you’ve been wanting to create;

there’s a form of creative expression you want to improve; OR

you’ve identified a new area of creativity you’d like to explore.

For a $1500 investment you’ll learn an entirely new way to access your most vibrant, uninhibited creative self and get in-depth, personal coaching on your progress and challenges. Send me an email to if you’d like to apply for this coaching experience.

I offer soul-connected, nature and creative experiences at my gorgeous acreage and studio in Prince Edward County. You can find a calendar with my workshops at Most workshops are 2-4 hours in length. Or you can go to and subscribe for my newsletter.

Prefer a more in-depth, custom, creative experience at my acreage? Email me at to arrange a custom program for you and your friends or family.

For a transformative and expansive group coaching experience, join me for The Magic Room Experience this October. We’ll meet weekly from October to February to bust through all the BS in your mind that stands between you and living more expansively. You’ll end the program next spring feeling unfettered, expansive, excited and open, and you’ll be actively creating the life you want. For more details or to apply for the Magic Room Experience, send me an email request with “I’d like more information about the Magic Room Experience” in the subject line to

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner of Ernst & Young in Toronto, where I serviced banks and other large multinationals and led a large group of professionals.

My life expanded when I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint, something I’d always dreamt of doing, but had no reason to believe was possible for me. After a couple years of painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who yearn to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected in their lives every day, and I became certified as a life coach.

I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at GRACE Studio (more formally, the “George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion”) in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. And, of course, producing this podcast for you.
