One of the biggest lessons I’m learning this year is the importance of completion, of finishing what you start. Creating new things is a type of high all its own. The thinking, the planning, the moment when everything comes together and it’s better than you ever imagined – that’s the exciting part, at least for me.

When I got the news of this awesome opportunity I had to pinch myself: “The Queen of Burlesque and me? Face to face?” I couldn’t […]
