OK you crazy kids, wipe the ash off your valerian steel and scribble Tyrion’s name in the margins of the nearest history textbook — BECAUSE IT’S TIME FOR OUR LAST #GameofThrones RECAP.

I don’t even have a preamble to this one because there’s too much to discuss and I’ve kept y’all waiting long enough…

*~*~*… So LET’S GET RIGHT INTO THE EPISODE.*~*~*

❄️ We open another episode of It’s Always Sunny in Westeros with the gang contemplating their life choices in appropriate total silence.

It kinda sucks that the two dudes who were trying do Do the Most: Hero Edition™…


️ Ladies and gentlemen boys and girls and non-binary compatriots,

Rise up from the ashes and remember if you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma you may be entitled to compensation — because IT’S TIME FOR ANOTHER GoT RECAP.

How’s everyone feeling today? Good? Still hype? ME TOO.

Also I’ll be honest it was probably all the wine I drank at our group watch last night but the first words out of my mouth after the episode ended were: HOW DO I MAKE THIS FUNNY?!

Fear not, there was plenty of ridiculousness still worthy of commentary but…


Alright nerds, grab the nearest pitcher of wine and clank your metal cups together for a game of medieval Never Have I Ever because it’s time for another…

*~*~* GAME OF THRONES RECAP POST *~*~*

We’re back for another round of Well I Guess We’re Really Doing This of Thrones.

I’d also like to say, for all the folks who are like

“What happened to the writing?!”

and

“What happened to the LOGIC!?”

May I remind you: there are zombies AND (somewhat confusingly) “good people” raised from the dead, one surprisingly effective God of Fire (who may have absolutely nothing…

If you’re a freelancer or creative entrepreneur, you’ve probably seen this before:

You’re zooming around a forum or Facebook group for your professional focus, and someone brings up — dun dun dunnnn — pricing.

I’m a beginner (about 6 months in), so I’m not sure what to charge for XYZ project.

Right now I’m doing $50/hr, and I’m estimating a number of hours…

Immediately, between the mix of decent advice and follow-up questions, the swarm descends.

Too low! How can you live off that?! You should double that immediately.”

You should be starting at a minimum of $300/hr.

And the…


Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, grab your favorite wight and extinguish your flaming swords, it’s time for another…

Author’s note: For the past couple of seasons of GoT I’ve taken it upon myself to write recaps of each episode on Facebook. Upon request, I’ve posted them here to make them easier to share internet-wide.

First things first, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…

I think we’ve gotta take a moment again to appreciate just how much GoT has changed the way we perceive good TV.

Like George RR has…


Welp WE’RE BACK for another episode of Generational Healing, Sword Swapping, and Loving Storyline Resolution of Thrones.

Author’s note: For the past couple of seasons of GoT I’ve taken it upon myself to write recaps of each episode on Facebook. Upon request, I’ve posted them here to make them easier to share internet-wide.

While I’ll be honest that I come to the Seven Kingdoms every week in the hope my heartstrings will be actively tortured because this is what George RR’s storytelling has now trained me to believe good television is — I am now recalibrating my expectations so I…


And WE! ARE! BACK!

(That felt great to type.)

First of all: LET’S HEAR IT FOR THAT INTRO SEQUENCE MAKEOVER BUDGET.

The minute I saw the big ol’ Hole in the Wall I was clutching my chest.

We’re back fam, and the times they are a chaaaanginnn’.

This episode brought you Exposition and Speedy Resolution of Thrones…


Goodnight, sweet princess.

I’d never told this story publicly — let alone onstage in front of 130 people…

… But as soon as I did, my knees turned near-liquid with relief.

I was speaking at The Copywriter Club IRL 2019 conference with a talk called From Nothing to Something: How to turn your ideas, point of view, and personal philosophies into profitable products.

I’ve been teaching marketing from the stage for years, but this talk was something special — because it gave me time and space to riff on my absolute favorite thing to do in business: teach people how to design, test…


It me! (Circa 1997)

The summer of 1997 was perhaps the most frustrating of my (then extremely short) life.

My siblings, cousins and I were spending a winding few months at my grandparent’s straight-out-of-a-storybook house in Sussex, England.

However, despite all the usual delectable grandmotherly-made meals and enchanted back garden hideaways — I was eight years old and grumpy AF.

What I know now is that I was stuck in that strange period of being “too old” for adults to intentionally lose foot races to me or gasp in awe of my terrible drawings, and “too young” to be genuinely good at… anything.

Between…

It’s that time of year again: twinkling holiday displays, commercials trying to convince you a brand new leased Toyota makes a sensible gift, and (in my corner of the internet) an incoming tidal wave of “HOW TO HIT YOUR 2019 GOALS” emails.

I don’t know about y’all — but that final internet holiday tradition usually sends a surge of panic through my bloodstream.

“Oh shit. 2018 is over?!?!”

*Takes a fearful sip of seltzer*

“I never wrote my book/launched my signature product/lost those 30 pounds/finished my rebrand. Damnit.”

*Looks out over the expanse of her desk littered with post-it notes…
