Hi, I'm Carla.

Named top women in tech by Fast Company, I produce apps that unearth your true bliss. I’m also a mentor, speaker, philanthropist and trusted voice of female empowerment. In short, I get paid for being me.

Thanks to you, I'm producing a new app called Mojo (more than a journal) to release Autumn 2016. It’s a spin-off of my most popular app, Gratitude, which has helped thousands unlock better lives for themselves.

My daily following of more than 60,000 + readers find my voice refreshing and inspiring — even when the topic is gritty. Join our family so we may connect again.

Having spent a good part of the Clinton-era working in DC, I'm feeling rather pleased about it. The news was like sweet incense to heighten an already glorious moment.


I successfully been avoiding the pantsuit-combover vortex that is the 2016 time-suck. Until today.

While the world collectively tunes into the results, I resound to remember that regardless of […]


“But Dad, I’m only nine and I can barely reach the pedals!” I protested. “Jump in. I’ll teach you,” he replied. Grabbing a phone book, he explained the difference between the gas and brake, then I drive him to his brother’s farm, in a trance of terror. “Slowing-down-to-turn” wasn’t part of our one minute lesson, so Dad grabbed the […]

Want To See My Mojo?

My creative muse has been busy lately. Last week I made a fun little video for a show a new show by Apple called Planet Of The Apps (cute title, no?). I’ll share that video and all the juicy details once I know more. But first I want to show you some mockups of the new Mojo app. […]

What to do when an app idea strikes

I’m producing my first new app in nearly six years; Mojo : More than a Journal is a spin-off of the Gratitude app released in 2008. The idea didn’t lightning-bolt strike me but rather prodded at me for months through people I trust. In other words, you guys asked me overandoverandover for a new Gratitude app and I finally listened. As the idea morphed from […]
I only share my articles with my mailing list, every Sunday.  A couple weeks later, I'll post them here. So let's make it easy. If you want more, sign up. If you don't, that's peachy too.
