How long have you been doing what you do, and how did you become a Creativity and Life Purpose Specialist?

I have been a Certified Fearless Living Coach for more than 10 years, and I’ve been creative my entire life. Yet to answer this question specifically, it’s probably best that I share with you a defining moment, and a resulting “compelling story” that brought me to where I am today – mentoring lost, stuck, or blocked artists and creative entrepreneurs like you on exactly what to do to overcome depression, anxiety, self-doubt, and excessive questioning, clarify and re-affirm their unique purpose, and move forward with their creativity so that they can make a difference and make some money.

That defining moment in my life happened in 2012. But first, allow me to set the stage ….

I vividly remember that, at age 3, whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grow up I’d say “I’m gonna grow up. Go to college. Become a doctor, and THEN get married.” This is what I had been trained to say. It was critically important to my mom that I prepare to enter the workforce. And I stepped up to the challenge — I was and over-achiever who was exacting, thorough, and got things done. When my parents divorced, I stepped up to the role of second parent all while staying on the Honor Roll and following all the rules..

And all along, I loved my bouts of creativity, even if it just was doing “Backyard Theater.” I came alive when creating, dancing, acting, writing and felt most like myself in those moments.

But I had been programmed for “real work” – you can’t make any real money being creative, so it should just be a hobby.

About Me and What I Do
JJ Ballet Teacher

Flash forward, and I graduated from college with honors (with a Bachelor of Arts, not a doctorate). THEN I got married and somehow in spite of my childhood programming, I ended up with a creative career — owning a successful dance studio. And although it hadn’t necessarily been part of my original “independent woman” plan, we decided to have a child..

I did everything “right” to get pregnant, and I did! So I was super-shocked when that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage (Twins! Told you I was an over-achiever). But I treated the miscarriage like everything else – I powered through, locked away the pain, and went to work.

Shutting down my emotions was the responsible thing to do, after all. I couldn’t miss work!

Shortly thereafter, I got pregnant again and, thankfully, I soon had a healthy, beautiful daughter. Now, I had heard about other mothers grappling with post-baby depression or exhaustion. But … mine NEVER went away. I was entirely and perpetually wiped out for years.

But still, I made sure I did every single thing I could and should. I would wake up in the morning and set my family up for a successful day. Drop my daughter off at pre-school, take a nap. Make a meal, take a nap. Check into work, take a nap. You get the picture.

I must have napped for the better part of a decade. I felt like a complete loser or a zombie, and I hid my struggles from everyone.

I wouldn’t admit the truth – that I was actually depressed.

Adrenal Fatigue Word Cloud

Finally, when I opened up to a doctor, she declared that I must just be perimenopausal. Really? At 35? And why could all of the other menopausal women I know at least make it through a standard workday without three naps? Some days were so bad that I couldn’t even form a coherent thought!

I looked for answers elsewhere, and I soon found a naturopath who got to the main root of the problem: I had severe Adrenal Fatigue and Celiac Disease. I spent the next year healing myself with nutrition, supplements, and eventually bioidentical hormones.

But underneath it all was a scary realization. It wasn’t just gluten that was poison to my body. I had been poisoning myself and my life with “shoulds.”

I healed physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I embarked on a year of reinvention. 

By this time it was 2012. I was 41 and feeling better than I had in the past decade. I was ready for passion, re-connection, and creativity. It was a beautiful June day in Wisconsin and I was in my hammock, I prayed to God “ Please tell me what I am to do with my life, and help me get out of my own way.” I promised, “I’m ready now.”

Patterns in Your Hands Quote

I dozed for a while and when I woke up, I had an email with the subject “Get Out of Your Own Way.” (God answered quickly!) This email introduced me to the concept that a person’s life purpose and divine design is mapped out in their fingerprints …  that our soul’s mission is right there in the palm of our hands!

I got my Life Purpose clarified and soon learned how to do it for others

Officially, it was time … time for me! I’d already worked as a life coach for years, and manifesting? Yep! I could do it in my sleep

I pulled together all the skills I had amassed in my lifetime — combining my natural skill for setting up structures and strategies, and my true passions: creativity, spirituality, and my dedication to the fabulous, beautiful, but elusive direction we call purpose.

Creativity Seminar

I freed myself from my life of “shoulds” and started truly living my purpose: teaching other creative women how they can do the same! I watched them blossom in self-acceptance and amazement too!

With so much momentum, it became my commitment to dedicate the rest of my professional life to helping others remove the emotional barriers, blocks, and other struggles that stand between them and their purpose, bring about the changes necessary to truly flourish, and emerge lighter, brighter, and deeply connected to their creativity and life purpose!

Since then, I’ve worked with many private clients and spoken in front of countless groups. I’m living the creative life of my dreams — feeling inspired, healthy, clear, balanced, and full of vitality and purpose! I have the time, energy, and brainpower for my family, my business, and my creative work in the theater.

And I have created The Abundant Artist system and the 90-Day Unleash Your Creativity and Prosperity Program — a series of six important steps that every artist, writer, designer, photographer, or creative entrepreneur needs to apply to get out of her own way, live her purpose full out, and claim her big, prosperous, creative life!

FAQs

Who are your clients?

I work with people just like you — spirit-centered artists and creative entrepreneurs – who are being called to step into their greatest creative success, yet feel held back by their lack of energy or time, lack of motivation, or lack of confidence.

They have never been taught how to align with their purpose in life. They need support breaking through life-long patterns of limiting beliefs, optimizing their creative brain so that they can feel motivated inspired, working with their own natural creative cycle so that they can be more productive, and standing in their power with full permission to be their authentic and creative self!

What makes you different from other "coaches?"

As a creative, I know that it’s a BIG deal when we can’t live our purpose and express ourselves — whether it’s due to brain fog, self-sabotage, fear of stepping out, depression, self-doubt, fatigue, overwhelm, anxiety or something else entirely. It affects all areas of our lives, from finances to confidence, relationships to health. It snowballs, big time!

So when you work with me, you aren’t just getting a coach. You get a Creativity and Life Purpose Specialist that’s been there and done that! And I know that it’s not about setting up arbitrary timelines and goals that don’t work with your real life. That just sends you back into a big pit of failure and “Why bother?”.

Instead, I get to the root of your creative struggles and help you elevate on all levels —  physically, mentally and spiritually. This is the only way to your sustained creative success! No more peaks and valleys, just sustained energy, motivation, and inspiration!

I will help balance you and challenge you, providing a mix of gentle humor and fun with profound wisdom. I see the truth of what’s standing in your way, which allows you to get clear on your purpose and jump into action. And that ripples through your entire life! You’ll align with your own unique Life Purpose and find your own natural creative flow so that you can tap into it at any time.

What that means to you is that you get to live your big, beautiful, prosperous creative life (all of it!)… with the full permission and freedom to be you and do it your way!

What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?

The Abundant Artist workshops, products, and programs were created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about stepping into their creativity in a big way and having artistic success. No more getting into bed at night and beating yourself up because another day went by where you were too busy, stuck, tired, unsure, or overwhelmed to take that next creative step!

They were created for you to put systems into place within a few months (sometimes weeks!), which will eventually free you from long-standing patterns of self-sabotage, blocks, and fears so that you can find more time, energy, and brainpower for your creativity and self-expression.

Being an artist and creative entrepreneur myself, I work best with other women who know that creativity is part of their soul’s mission — so they are committed to their success no matter what! They are ready to get going and just want to know exactly what steps to take to have their greatest creative success and live the big, beautiful creative life they’ve always dreamed of.

My clients often say, “Tell me how to get out of my own way, and I’ll just do it!” Consider me to be your teacher and your guide. I’ll give you everything you need to know to have more creative success. You will be expected to take the program seriously and take consistent, steady action. No excuses, no regrets, and no giving up on yourself … just a new way of thinking about your creativity and full support while you find the freedom and confidence to create and make a difference with your art!

Who is NOT the right fit for your program?

Please know that I’m very selective in who I work with. I believe in setting people up for success from day one, so I (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for my programs and won’t get the results that they signed up for.

The Abundant Artist System and 90-Day Unleash Your Creativity and Abundance Program are NOT for those who are financially strapped or desperate. It’s my experience that people in financial crisis are not able to open up fully and trust the process (probably because they are worrying about where they will get next month’s rent check or mortgage payment).

If you fall into this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times of financial crisis at one point or another. Do yourself three favors:

    1. Get some extra money coming in with a full- or part-time job. This will take the edge off and provide a little more peace of mind. Mostly it will de-clutter your mind enough to see the big picture and focus on your Elevated Artist Clarity, Balance, and Action Planning for your Greatest Creative Success assignments.
    2. Make sure you’re in my private Facebook Group: bit.ly/AbundantArtistFB
    3. Make a point to watch my video trainings and webinars in my Facebook Group. The tips in those will give you LOTS to think about, and help you move forward in your creativity.

Doing these three things will really help you get primed for our work together. When you’re ready, drop me an email or sign up for a Spark Strategy Session and we’ll get you started. (No rush! I’ll be here when you need me.)

Please note that I also won’t work with chronic skeptics who are challenging or questioning every aspect of this program, or individuals who consistently make excuses for not getting their assignments done. If you are one of these people, I gently and respectfully ask that you do NOT email me or schedule a Spark Strategy Session. I hope you understand that we’ll probably just not work well together, and I wouldn’t want to waste your time or money.

Does this really work?

Yes! The results of our work come from shifting your mindset and breaking through the fears that keep you from  your greatest success, introducing healthy brain-balancing habits so that you can be a conscious creator, and aligning with your Life Purpose and natural design. This blows your confidence through the roof and allows you to find the freedom and confidence in your life to be more creative and take more artistic (and authentic) risks – so that you experience more prosperity.

Our work together has allowed my clients to skyrocket their creative success as they’ve hired agents, published books, started businesses, created and executive produced a streaming TV show, sold their jewelry at exclusive boutiques, signed major art contracts with international corporations, developed a podcasting network for holistic practitioners, and exhibited their art in galleries in major markets.

How quickly can I expect results?

That depends on how quickly you can make those inner shifts. Some clients are ready to launch their success in a very short time frame, sometimes even in a few weeks. Others have a bit more work to do first. It also depends on how much time you have to devote to your creativity, where you are in your creative process, and what your ultimate creative goal is.

But remember, we’re building your creative success and prosperity on your terms — we can massively move your forward no matter where you are right now — as long as you are open and willing to do the work!

How can I guarantee myself that I will get more motivation, prosperity, confidence, clarity and freedom from creative blocks in record time?

Do all of your assignments and practice the techniques you learn. Be totally committed to your success. Understand that this is a process — a proven one — that works if you take action and implement all of the steps.
