 And I’m challenging you to write something every day for 10 days. The next Challenge begins Summer 2019


 We’ll be on this journey together, as a collective of people leading our lives, careers and businesses with consciousness and intention. We’ll all apply butt glue*, sit down and write.

Brilliant Ones:  

I hear you. You’re feeling the nervous system chaos in reaction to the headlines. You’re feeling a little behind where you think you should be in life. And you’re feeling like making a bold move forward, but you’re hesitating because you can’t get a clear line of sight on what exactly that move should be.  

So this 10 Day Writing Challenge has a theme: Free + Clear.  

It’s all about easefully rising above the chaos to focus on what matters most. In this Challenge, you’ll learn how to cultivate a steady state of calm and flow.  

You’ll find yourself receiving sparks of inspiration for making bold transitions in your career, your life, your relationships and even your personal patterns. These transitions will help you walk more fully into who you are here to be in this world, so that you can experience the full joy I know is in store for you.  

Together, we’ll take a 10-day sprint-style journey to start:  

1: De-chaosing your soul and reclaim your thoughts, your time and your energy 2: Cultivating clarity around your purpose and next steps 3: Releasing old limitations and sparking momentum.  

You can use the Challenge to work on your book or business or to create a daily writing practice that serves as an emotional windshield wiper, so you can start every day free and clear.  

If you could use that, join me. 

“I feel like I joined the mind gym. Hard to believe you could have lifted all those weights before you do. Ugh! Hard. Sweat. Rewarding.” 

- Anna Gutkina 

This 10-Day Writing Challenge is:

  • A mental and emotional windshield wiper, so you can start every day free and clear, eager for what’s ahead. 
  • It’s how you learn to speak up, express yourself, and ask for what you need. It’s how you learn to make your case and tell your own story. 
  • It’s a container for metabolizing past experiences, keeping what nourishes you and releasing everything else. 
  • It will teach you how to tap into creativity and flow anytime you need it. 
  • If you’re stuck, it’ll help you get unstuck. 
  • It will help you release old, broken stories and patterns and step into next-level ways of operating in your life. 
  • This Challenge will expand your capacity to create things and to live an all-in life. 

“During the challenge I found myself taking action towards daydreams I had harbored for a long time. I would write for 30 mins in the mornings, then spend 15 minutes investigating new ideas online, reaching out to new people, etc. I love how the act of writing every morning enabled that proactivity in me!” 

- Howard Perry

“As a result of taking Tara's Writing Challenge, I decided to cut off clients that don't deserve me, and make space for people that are better to deal with. I think it will be very profitable and better for my stress level."

You can choose your own adventure in this Challenge. Mixing-and-matching is encouraged.


You know you want or need to make a shift or transition, in any area of your business or your life. You want to cultivate clarity around your purpose, in general, or around your vision for 2018. You’re ready to level up. 


You’ll want to follow the prompts I issue every day. They take you on an intentionally sequenced personal hero’s journey of releasing the old, finding your voice, tapping into your personal genius and creating a vision for the next season of your life. 


You want to create a writing practice, to learn how to create groundedness and clarity of thinking, any time you need it. 


You’ll mostly engage in free-writing. I’ll teach you how. If you get stumped, you can always use the daily prompt. 


You have a book, blog, business or passion project you’d like to generate a lot of momentum and progress on, in a finite period of time. 


I’ll help you generate flow and creativity and get out of perfectionism, so you can get those words on the page. 


“This morning's prompt spoke to me, and loudly. I've already written for today, and it poured out of me. Whoa. Haven't even finished coffee #2, but I feel worlds better!"
