Stuck In The Muck

Here I grow again! But not without resistance and getting a little dirty.


In this episode, I come clean about how it feels to resist the urge to struggle against fear, frustration, and the imposter syndrome. 

I share some tools and techniques to reassure our monkey-minds, and slowly extricate ourselves from the psychological muck and move on gracefully. 

My recent practice of The Morning Pages from Julia Cameron’s The Artist's Way has stirred up some shit for me. I no longer need Tarzan to swing by and yank me out of the emotional pit I’ve fallen in.

Learn how my special Mastermind group is a lifeline and excavating my subconscious is an essential part of my rescue.



“ . .  . You're not stuck. You're just committed to certain patterns of behavior because they helped you in the past. Change the formula to get a different result.”

Episode 12 - Stuck in the Muck

Summary/bullet points of advice

“When I feel stuck, I typically ask myself a few questions. What am I avoiding? Why am I avoiding it? And what's it, what's it based around. Is it a story from the past that I've made up or maybe experienced and haven't let go of yet?”

~Jackie Ulmer, Street Smart Wealth


“. . . the word that comes up for me, in that, is this uncomfortable. And I think we're uncomfortable with being uncomfortable. And so muck is kind of dirty. It feels like something we're supposed to avoid. Part of life is muck and you just have to be in it sometimes in order to get out of it,”

~Lee Woodward, Woman In Disguise
