What was the inspiration behind your business?
A nagging sense of discontent.
Creativity has always called to my heart, however, to please others I threw my artist self under the proverbial bus and went on to pursue a different path.
Through the years as a counselor, coach and mentor I began to heed the calling of Creativity and offer more intuitive based art sessions with my clients.
Now, as a full-time brain-based leadership coach, trainer of transformational coaching and integrative intuitive transformational arts instructor, I have my gifts, talents, and skills blended into a true masterpiece. A masterpiece in the sense that I am authentically honoring the call of my soul and bringing the highest level of contribution I possibly can to my clients and the world at large.
Who are your clients and what do you do for them?
I work with entrepreneurs, mission-driven leaders, and those who advocate for human rights. I facilitate transformational workshops, training and retreats that bring creative processes into their world allowing them to solve problems, develop their own transformational skill sets as well as bring awareness and inspired action to their missions.
What are your business’ values? How do they align with your personal values?
My business is an out-picturing of my inner world. I believe values are truly our unconscious/subconscious blueprint. When they are not aligned within, how could they be outside of us? I choose to express my values of freedom for all sentient beings, creative expression, and prosperity through my business.
How/Why did you choose your business name?
Because I am standing for authenticity, I chose my name as my brand/business.
What do you love most about your work?
Witnessing others tap into their own Creative Power and have that “a-ha” moment as they reach that true flow state! Second to that, the art they create as they move through the processes we invoke during our time together.
What is the biggest challenge in running your own business?
Falling asleep at night due to the excitement of the next upcoming classes!
What are your/your business’ goals for the future?
Right now my top priority is launching my forthcoming children’s book, The Dream of The Little Buffalo, a book dedicated to eradicating the suffering that occurs from human trafficking.
What advice would you give to a new entrepreneur?
You know more than you think you do. Action brings the feedback needed to course correct at any moment!
