Happy New Year | Let’s Build Together!

  I would just like to encourage you this first day of 2020 to claim whatever “land” you have and to “build” upon it. Whatever you currently have is enough! So often we are in a hurry for what is next that we can forget that where we lay out head right now has potential and promise. If you have an apartment, rent a room in a home, townhome, small home, live in suburbia, or have 100 acres. Name it, honor …

Ten Things That Defined This Decade In My Life + Business

    1. All of the things that made me weird growing up are now the things that make our life and business. I was the kid making up plays, gathering the neighbors, writing poetry under a tree (no one needs to read those), writing songs, designing clothing and randomly calling the airlines to see how much it would cost to fly to California. Being a creative kid in a small rural town can be hard. Sports were king and …

Creatively Made Business | Do You Have Blind Spots?

  This is the perfect time to re-evaluate your business, your creativity and see if you have any blind spots you have been ignoring. Looking at your business through fresh eyes should happen on a monthly basis but more in detail at least quarterly. Our day-to-day lives running a business can mean mixing home, business, creativity and if we aren’t careful we can miss the signs that we are off track. So, do you have any blind spots that you …

You Are Not Too Much. Really. | Creatively Made Business

  Being a female artist and business owner has allowed me to walk out interactions that are more raw and exposed than many other professions. I teach and create with a majority of women which means intimate travel, small groups and often very real and open conversations. Through my business consulting and also lifelong relationships with women I hear one thing over and over. Women can feel like we are too much. Whether it is our never-ending ideas, emotions that spill …

Creatively Made Business | Stop JUST Dreaming

If I want to learn something, go somewhere, spend time with someone… I have to make a PLAN OF ACTION.     There have been more times than I can count that I had no idea how I was going to make …

My Journey In Morocco | Marrakech Part II

  You can find Part One HERE. As soon as I was undressed (down to my underwear because that was what I was told) I put on a robe and was met outside the small changing space and taken down the dark hallway with all lights putting off a soft red glow. At the end of the hallway they opened the door and I walked into a small dark room filled with steam, the scent of eucalyptus, a stone bench …
