Letters for the Reckless are monthly musings (with occasional notes in-between) on how we give voice to our true selves—with all our human imperfections and inconsistencies—and awaken our business writing through tender wholeheartedness.


The only way to find your true self is by recklessness and freedom...

But remember always that the true self is not a fixed thing… the true self is always in motion like music, a river of life, changing, moving, failing, suffering, learning, shining.

That is why you must freely and recklessly make new mistakes… And do not try to be consistent, for what is true to you today may not be true at all tomorrow, because you see a better truth.

~ Brenda Ueland from 'If You Want To Write: A Book About Art, Independence and Spirit'

“I just want to tell you that I think this is amazing and heartfelt and moving unlike any other newsletter I’ve signed up for before (and I’ve signed up for hundreds over the years).”

“while i’ve unsubscribed from most of the ‘inspirational noise’ online... i’ve taken to enjoying the random and honest writing that you share...
i can not only relate to a similar path, but also am uplifted by the authenticity of your voice—and i use that word trepidatiously as it seems to be bandied around the e-blogo-sphere so much of late.

i honestly cannot remember where or how i came across and subscribed to your writing... but i am glad i did.”
