Achieving greatness requires planting seeds of greatness in your mind. Evolving from ordinary to extraordinary, broke to baller, or ho-hum and mediocre to successful high-performer necessitates practicing a basic and fundamental life principle that says, "success starts in the mind." If regardless of current circumstance, you believe your talents, skills, and creativity support your vision to make your dream a reality, then the LaurieTalks podcast is for you.
Responsible for What We Know | EP64
Some people believe you are responsible for what you know, while others don’t.

Rich Money Choices | EP63
Take care of your money. And, eventually, your money will take care of you.
As artists and entrepreneurs, we don’t always have the luxury of consistent income - especially at the beginning of our careers.
Show business is, by its nature, episodic. Opportunities available today may not be available tomorrow.
Seasonal or inconsistent work makes financial management a necessity.
Effectively budgeting, tracking, investing, and saving are essential skills for an artist.
Finance yourself and take a disciplined approach to money management.

That Feeling Stuck Feeling: When Your Get up and Go Has Gotten up and Gone | EP62
When life has you feeling stuck and off your game, remember we all experience mistakes or missteps.
Stuff happens, and it’s unrealistic to expect success at every juncture.
Inactivity during any days, weeks, or years needn’t justify the same behavior moving forward.
Forgive yourself for the half-completed projects and the ventures you quit after a few attempts. A lack of motivation in one area doesn’t tell your whole story.
The feeling of stuck feelings pass.
You progress after an occasional fall or stall by planting again.
Plant more seeds in advance of the harvest you expect tomorrow.

Watch How You Talk to Me | EP60
Standing up for yourself and being assertive is not about being rude, pushy, mean, or aggressive.
It’s about finding a way for you to be comfortable when asking for what you want in a way that respects others and that others respect.
If you don’t feel good about yourself, you lose power because you think you don’t have any. Consider your power. It’s there.
If you find yourself unhappy with how you’re being treated . . . If you have difficulty communicating what is or is not acceptable to you, if you feel that you’re always being taken for granted or used by some of the people in your life, then do a self-check, look for patterns, and find ways to set boundaries.
We teach people what we will and will not tolerate from them. Treating yourself well is what sets the standard for others to follow.
Thank you for listening. Grateful.

When I Was the Ultimate Cynic | EP59
A cynical mindset obliterates hope and is a massive barrier to anything good.
No one gets through life untested.
