About your host…

You see I’m in the same boat you are in pursuing my creative biz.  I’ve personally experienced a lot of ups and downs and things that worked and things that didn’t work.  I want to share all of the good resources I’ve found along the way with you because my ultimate goal is to connect you with the products, services and resources you need to run a smooth business and avoid the mistakes I made!
I’m a mid-career professional in the health field but decided to start my own interiors business on the side.  I hadn’t considered myself an entrepreneur before so let’s just say it’s been a gratifying but also difficult journey. If you find yourself in the predicament of wanting to also express your creative side but juggling multiple priorities, know that you are not alone. 
Navigating the process of starting and/or growing your creative pursuit isn’t impossible.  So let’s take this journey together and share our wins and our losses but more importantly support each other as creative entrepreneurs!
