Giulietta “Julie” Nardone here. I’m the scout/rebel archetype and love it! I’m always up around the bend investigating what I’ve found up there, then running back to tell the others. Sometimes this makes me not only early for the party but also there before anyone even thought of the party. In school this got me in a bit of trouble because I wasn’t happy sitting there being told about what already existed. I wanted to be out wandering around discovering the new or questioning existing theories.
This questioning attitude often got me in trouble because the message I learned from adults was “to be seen and not heard.” To get along I started to repress my inquisitiveness. Not a happy time in my life being disconnected from the real me.
Fortunately, fate stepped in! Singing, acting, writing & community work got me reconnected with all of me. Life’s been good ever since.
If something doesn’t add up to me, I’ll conduct my own personal investigation. I often discover that what I’m being told is just a myth, that it’s someone else’s limited belief system distorting reality. Myths keep us from achieving our greatness, either as individuals or as collectives.
I encourage you to do the same. If something doesn’t feel right or you don’t “buy” what you’re being told, investigate until you get an answer that makes sense to you.
Need a little push to get started doing that? Join other fun, life-loving folks and take one of my disobedient life shops. These kick-ass sessions are unlike anything else you’ve ever taken. You’ll leave exhaling gusto! To stay in the wild loop about upcoming life shops, please sign up for my museletter on the blog page.
And if you’re looking for bold re-branding and logo design, please visit my sister graphic design site at Fearless Design. I collaborate with business owners to find their greatest strength and then use that to design their new logo. My design style is clean, contemporary and creative.
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate you taking the time to find out what Giulietta the Muse is all about. I’m all about encouraging you take back your power, your self and your life. You really can do it …
If you want to get in touch with me about my life shops or anything else that’s on your mind, please stop by my Say Hello Page. I’d love to hear from you!
