My name’s Leanne, and welcome to Mintedleaf.
I write about how you figure out what you want to do when you’re a grown up.
It’s harder than it sounds, especially if you been doing the same thing–or in the same job–for awhile. It’s really, really hard if you are especially good at it. Hey, you’ve got street cred in your industry. You’ve built a name for yourself.
Basically, you want to try some things to have fun AND make money without screwing everything up.
There’s a method getting all that done:
- Dig into your own personal story for moments of delight and insight
- Learn new skills fast
- Read deeply and widely for understanding
- Run idea experiments
- Start making things
If this sounds like the messy journey you’re on too, I’d love for you to subscribe and follow along.
The (very short) version of me
I’m a professional writer living outside Vancouver, Canada. I’m obsessed with making life changes that stick. I’ve got two college age kids and I’m still paying my mortgage. My dog is awesome. I love writers conferences. I’m constantly working at being more creative, financially independent, and happy.
