By elevating your entrepreneurial experience through inspired creativity, you can transform your business and set sail on a life-changing voyage.
You are already a creator
(and I’ll prove it to you)
As the daughter of an artistic entrepreneur, I wanted to be successful in business and highly creative.
But through years of distraction and anxiety-driven productivity, the idea that I could be both fell from my grasp.
In 2008, it felt as though everything I had worked for was falling apart: my marriage, my finances, and my health. It was the dawn of the Great Recession, and I was drowning in debt and fear.
It wasn’t until I began my own Creative Rebel’s Voyage™ and started implementing small-yet-powerful habits that I saw how I could move through these obstacles: by embracing inspired creativity.
To access creativity, however, we must mindfully fuel it; we must cultivate inspiration, and unleash it without fear of judgment.
When in doubt,
seek out inspiration.
Inspiration isn’t just the lightbulb moment we think it is. Rather, it’s an active journey of listening to ourselves to discover what makes us whole, what we love, and what brings us alive.
By seeking out inspiration, you’re taking the first steps toward uncovering your own purposeful way of living so that you can flow naturally into creativity and abundance.
Using the proven Creative Rebel’s Voyage™ methodology as our nautical chart, we’ll blend highly-intuitive and creative know-how with a laser-focused, strategic, and whole-brained approach.
Recenter with joy in your work and your life.
The entrepreneur’s journey is ever-evolving
It’s a delicious process of dismantling the beliefs that entrepreneurship itself isn’t an artform—that you are not a creative being—to become your truest, most energized and aligned self.
Together, we’ll do the deep and necessary work of rekindling your curiosity and creativity so you can capture your experiences, articulate your story, and highlight your know-how to create your roadmap to success.
About The Innovation & Creativity Institute
The Innovation & Creativity Institute began in 2006 while I was studying Entrepreneurship as a master’s student.
As part of an Innovation & Creativity class, I was introduced to IDEO, a Palo Alto design firm that encourages playfulness, creativity, and wild ideas.
I was captivated and set out to learn everything I could about innovation and creativity. I researched, digging deep and implementing every lesson learned into my ever-developing methodology as I worked with entrepreneurs, corporate teams, and nonprofit leaders.
Every nugget of knowledge and firsthand experience with clients was carefully folded into my approach, curriculum, and tools.
In 2011—during some of the most tumultuous years of my life—I launched a successful real estate firm with $5,000 and was debt-free and financially secure by 2014.
I leaned into exploring art and creativity, and little by little, I realized my power as an artist—sketching, painting, and creating my way to a new vibrant, clear, and courageous state of being.
I sold my real estate enterprise in 2018 which freed more time to focus my attention and creative energy towards coaching entrepreneurs, helping them build their own wildly successful businesses and lives.
Today, I use the insights I’ve gained throughout the last 15 years of researching innovation and creativity—and my own journey of filling my inspiration bucket—and pass them onto entrepreneurs who are ready to break out of the cycle of productivity and burnout.
