Everybody who’s tried communicating with words has felt it: a paralyzing barrier between the idea you want to share & the ability to actually Get.…

A few weeks ago, I went on the trip of a lifetime. I didn’t go on rides at Disneyland or see a Broadway show in New York City, & I didn’t go to Scotland to search for a family castle either. Sup, Clan MacLeod! I went to San Francisco; it wasn’t even my first trip there, but…

How to Build a Flexible Editorial Calendar in 3 Steps

By KrisWithaK | September 16, 2015

My Students taught me this key Lesson about Blogging & Business

By KrisWithaK | August 6, 2015

Striving for perfection will not make your message stronger, kitten. In fact, it is pretty much guaranteed to keep your message bottled up, nice and tight, away from your readers.

By KrisWithaK | July 31, 2015

Plan & Commit to an Editorial Calendar for your whole year? That can feel a little overwhelming, right? It sure can. In fact, it’s downright paralyzing. I’m a bit of a commitment-phobe, so it’s really hard for me to commit to what I will be writing about EVERY week for the next year. That’s too constricting! And overwhelming…and scary.…
