The Freedom To


Something I’ve noticed about myself that is different to a lot of the world is that I choose things based on what I
want, not based on what I “can have”. 


In other words I don’t choose based on limitation, and because I don’t, the limitations change.


Now that does NOT mean that there AREN’T limitations, and very real ones at that right in front of me. They are there, I see them, and I see that I don’t have any right or means to choose the desires I am choosing, and yet, I choose them anyway. I insist. I insist that that is what I want, even though I do not see the means or way right now, and that that is what I am choosing, regardless. This is living by intention, instead of by REACTION.


I just suspend my disbelief. And instead of obeying reality, I invite reality to obey me. It is a co-creative dance.


Reality will challenge and stretch you, YES. But YOU are meant to also challenge and stretch IT!  It was never meant to be a one sided thing with you just having to take what you are handed, it was meant to be this beautiful dance. Reality stretches you, you stretch it.


But we are taught to obey the limitations like they’re our masters. We are taught not to question them or our power to change them. We are taught that changing them requires self-sacrifice, hard work, suffering, “doing”, will-power, and “luck”. We are taught that thinking you can change them is stupid, childish, naive, or foolish. And these are the lies we’ve been enslaved to.


There is another power. A power that all true visionaries know about. A power that is more about your being than your doing, it’s the internal revolution that lights the external match. And that power is that you are a creator! You can choose what you want to create. You can choose, and the seeming limitations will change before your eyes.


Not like in the movies, with a wave of a magic wand… but like a seed that you plant and tend with love, as you go about your daily life. And then one day you look up… and see a flower.


That doesn’t mean it’s not magic — it IS! But the magic always requires you to grow.


All you have to do is work through all your inner conflicts about the things you want in order to see it. That is the growing you have to do. Working through those conflicts is like watering the soil and trimming away the darkening overburden so your seed can get some sunlight. But if you do that… if you tend it… that flower WILL bloom.


Do not throw up your hands when you still see dirt and no greenery. If you walk away from giving it your love, of COURSE it will never come up!


Don’t stop giving it your love. Most importantly because it’s not really IT you’re giving your love to when you do this… it’s YOU.  


What you really want, and what you really want to love, is always YOU. And when you get that handled, the sky’s the limit. 


And if you’d like to tend your seeds into bloom, and reclaim your freedom to choose based on what you WANT and not what you “can have”, then I invite you to join me in my Feast or Famine No More Course & Membership » We’ll get you setting your OWN limitations, instead of working within the ones someone handed you. And then ultimately, of course, get rid of those limitations all together. 😉









we'll help bring out your unique


so you can stand out in the crowd

The power of great design in branding your business is that it not only excites and inspires your clients, but it excites and inspires you too! When you meet your genuine brand, all fleshed out before you, it re-invigorates and re-inspires YOU about it too, it brings your vision to life in a whole new way, and that inspiration goes right back into the business… equipping you with everything you need to meet your market head-on, and grow your business from a fresh and strong foundation. As a successful business owner you already know that whether you’re selling a product or a service, what you’re really selling is an EXPERIENCE, and the best way to sell an experience is to give your prospective customers a “taste”. Here at The Salty Olive we specialize in just that very thing, and we’ve been doing it for 16+ years: distilling it all down to the heart of your business, and designing all your marketing materials to do just that—give your clients a true “taste” and FEEL for YOUR UNIQUE BRAND EXPERIENCE. The fact is people connect on a tactile, and emotional level through words and imagery—it’s what moves them and ultimately inspires them to choose you—that’s why we design your brand as an answer to what your clients most want to feel and experience,  because when you do that, you go from being A choice for them, to being THE choice for them.
