Finding Clarity and Inspiration in Your Work

Today I have an interview for you: it’s with Kiley Redhead the founder of The New School For Inspired Work.

I first met Kiley about a decade ago in a class at The Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. Since then we both traversed onwards in our entrepreneurial journeys and life had us reconnect once again. Kiley’s journey has led to the creation of an innovative school that helps people create clarity, and as she describes “to discover, create, and live your inspired work.”

In this interview you’ll learn some key tips on how to create clarity and what it means to discover work that fills you with inspiration and connects to your purpose.

Running time is about 25 minutes. A great listen to get inspired while you sit and relax, or even while you’re exercising. Enjoy!


And here’s a brief overview of what you’ll learn in this interview:

Why Its Impossible to Turn People off Just Because You Have a Niche

When people talk about creating clarity in business, one of the number one topics is choosing a niche.

There’s a lot of contradictory information out there about what a niche is, and at times I explain niche in a way that does not give the term it’s full value, but for the sake of simplicity a niche is your role (how and what you help people with) with a specific ideal client/dream client/target market/segment of society…

The Power of Living Fully + 3 Ways to Make Today Count

Today I’m sharing a story inspired by a friend that reminded me of the power of living fully and not taking life for granted:

Earlier this week a friend on Facebook wrote: “Today makes it 10 years I cheated death when I was ran over by a 50 ft dive boat”.

And I remember that day because I was there, on that island in Belize when it happened. And in the aftermath I decided to go with a few others and spend the next 2 months in hospitals at my friend’s bedside.

Hearing that update was a wake-up on many levels:

The Clue to Your Passion (It’s easier than you think)

Creating meaningful work is what helps us come alive and gives us a sense of inner freedom. It’s why whether you have your own business or are actively working on a side passion project: It’s important to have work that’s meaningful.

Meaning gives us strength, purpose and drives us to give all of ourselves. It helps us uncover a part of ourselves that can surprise us. When you’re immersed in a project that’s meaningful, it’s as if some great force comes and helps you achieve more than you ever dreamed possible.

The best way to sum this up is through a quote by Patanjali:

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
