Are you a new or struggling entrepreneur, creative, healer or anyone looking for inspired, fun, practical guided learning experiences?

Whatever your experience or skills, YOU can do this. With my step-by-step guidance. If you are Dreaming Big!

My late mother always told me people actively created businesses, provided for their families and served others in the Depression.

I believe in the redemptive, healing power of creation by:

Moving forward, using whatever tools and attitudes needed to create and share art, products, services, create community, and to help heal our souls and hearts.

This belief, with action, is helps many deal with daily issues while creating their better future.

Wow, why don’t you get insider secrets from someone who gets THAT kind of press and recognition?

Jenny Lens was not just one of the few photographers chronicling the early punk scene in both North America and London, she was also one of the few women working in a very male-dominated field. Her life is pretty fascinating and made up of the three acts usually associated with characters in movies and novels.”
