The Messy Middle Podcast is a podcast that talks with creative souls about the messy middle road and how we make magic within it.
Its like eaves dropping on conversations that are usually left behind closed doors.
This episode today is all about is foundations. This is something that I find myself talking about over and over, and its definetly influenced my teaching style. I see a thread line in my acupuncture practice as well as in my old soccer and piano days. I used this a lot back when I was coaching my students in my aerial bootcamp. I just see this really big, glaring thing that I like to talk about, I truly believe that foundation building is where its at. So I thought I’d take you through a little bit of my process around building foundations and how I use them in my daily life.Read More

I'm Elise and I make stuff. That's who I am and that's my job.
I started a blog in 2005 because I wanted to share my thoughts with the Internet. A year later, I began sharing craft projects and tutorials. In 2008, I opened my first online shop and since then, I have made and sold everything from letterpress prints to wooden plant stands.
Over the years, I have learned that while I'll always make stuff, my true passion is in helping people set and work towards their goals. In 2015, I launched the brand GET TO WORK BOOK® which provides tools to help you get your goals organized and do the work to reach them. I believe that big things happen one day at a time and my products are designed to schedule out those days. You can learn more about GET TO WORK BOOK® and shop the line here.
I live in San Diego, California with my husband, Paul, and our two young daughters, Ellerie and Piper.
