Creativity for the Rest of Us

Your Life By Design


Your Life By Design

 Create the life you want to live

Women are waking up to a new way of living and asking new questions: What do I want? What works best for me? What brings me joy? What really matters to me? Is this what I want to be doing with my life?

We hear you and have created a powerful program just for you.

Your Life By Design is for you if you:

  • Feel the blahs (or worse) at work
  • Yearn to contribute your unique gifts, talents or creativity
  • Wonder how to make a thoughtful, strategic and inspired transition to achieve more fulfilling balance of work and life
  • Want to feel empowered to make better choices
  • Need time away to reflect, relax, and imagine new possibilities for the next stage of your life

Experience the power of a community of evolving women discovering what matters most and setting a course to make it real. Express more of your true nature. Explore new possibilities not imagined before. Discover the ideal environment where you will thrive.

Our community approach is unique. You will design alongside women of diverse backgrounds, ages and stages of life; experiencing the enriched growth and expansion that comes as we encourage and learn from one other.

Explore three essential elements key to designing and realizing your meaningful life: Know Yourself, Know What You Want, and know how to Make it Happen. Choose one, two or all three sessions, in whatever order suits your needs.

Know Yourself

In this session, you will leverage your strengths,
purpose, meaningful work and life experiences to design the life you want.

  • Identify your unique strengths and understand how they work together to generate your core talents and abilities
  • Uncover sources of meaning in your past work and how you can create more fulfillment for the future
  • Discover and articulate your life’s purpose

Develop your personal The Alchemy for Success© blueprint as you start with the heart, stay true to yourself and identify areas of exploration to inform the life you are designing.

Know What You Want

This session helps you articulate a vision for your life and design a plan to achieve it.

  • Take stock of the current levels of well-being in all aspects of your life
  • Envision the life you desire
  • Create a plan to realize the life you want
  • Harness the power of intention to accomplish your dreams

Continue to work The Alchemy of Success© as you stay the course, approach change with confidence, and prepare for surprises.

Make it Happen

This session prepares you for the successes, set backs, and surprises that come in Life Design, and how to keep yourself motivated along the way.

  • Learn tools for course correction when you veer off track
  • Recognize the sticking points and obstacles that get in your way and how to overcome them
  • Develop your personal support system that will sustain you on this journey

Adapt your The Alchemy of Success© plan as you explore, learn, and adapt your blueprint for success.

Your Guides

We thrive on working with women to create lives that work for them. We have each experienced multiple transitions in our lives – in work, relationships, health, creativity, and well-being.  We are still growing and evolving – learning and informing. Each of us brings unique life experience and special talents for inviting growth, imagining new possibilities, and gently guiding you on a path of self-discovery into lives with more joy, fulfillment, and meaning.
