Making_It_to_the_Next_Level_-_Money_&_Creativity_featuring_Bailie_Slevin.png

Bailie Slevin is with us today to talk about money and making it! This year has been my "year of money" and what I've noticed is that I actually *like* talking about money and making money. That was not always the case. It used to be something that I avoided like the plague, but after making the choice to "befriend" it, I've learned that it's a really powerful tool and completely relates to bravery, especially bravery as an artist.

Bailie is a guest nomination from a previous Bare Naked...

I've really been looking forward to having someone one the show to talk about Imagination and specifically how that looks in quantum physics. Now, before you tune out and roll your eyes about either science or magical mysterious stuff that we typically have a hard time explaining, I want you to know this stuff really does matter.

We see so much pain and suffering in the world and it's easy to get caught up in the sameness and finite path that our culture is going down. This is exactly why I...

I know you'll really appreciate how caring and thoughtful and eloquently Karin speaks about some of these subjects we cover today. We cover what it means to forge a...
