Ever since she was a little girl, Dixie Gillaspie’s least favorite word was “can’t.” It still is, and she’s on a mission to prove that anything is possible, for anyone.
Her first love is working with entrepreneurs as a coach, consultant, muse, and firestarter. She’s good at seeing opportunities where other people see walls, navigating crossroads where other people see dead ends, and helping people connect their passion and purpose to create a powerful presence and increased profit.
Dixie is the author of Just Blow It Up: Firepower for Living an Unlimited Life, she contributes to Entrepreneur and Huffington Post and is a Senior Managing Editor for The Good Men Project.

In today’s episode, Dixie and I discuss:
- The idea that creativity is often educated out of us, and what to do about it
- The belief that long-lasting positive results cannot be achieved with negative reinforcement
- Dealing with the mindset of, “but I can’t because…”
- And much more!
