I am a Scanner and I desperately want to take one of my creative ideas and make it happen
I am a Pioneer and I want to connect with like-minded people so that I’m not alone
I am a Visionary and can’t seem to bring my ideas to fruition

Unlock Your Purpose & Make Money Living It!
When we can allow ourselves to be a creative channel, rather than a slave to our to-do lists and linear thinking, we enter into co-creativity both with Spirit and each other, and this is what brings resources, lasting change, and realization of vision. 90 percent of our perceived reality is governed by the subconscious mind- the part of us that stores memories of every time we were told or made to feel like we aren’t “Enough.” Join us learn to move forward through the fear, listen to your intuition and discover what it really takes to live a purposeful career.

Sign Sign, Everywhere a Sign
The first step in bringing a dream to fruition is knowing what it is. And the best way to know that is to turn the receiver ON and be willing to hear what you hear. That is, to develop self-reflective practices that strike up a conversation with the part of you that knows what it knows, knows what it’s going to take to make your life literally “come true,” and in the process help answer the Great Vocational Question: “Who am I?” In this dialogue, we’ll explore what some of those self- reflective practices are, the channels through which our passions and dreams typically make their way to us, the signs and signals that indicate the presence of a calling, and the fine art of discerning what’s a true call and what’s not. Gregg Levoy is the author of Callings: Finding and Following An Authentic Life (Random House)–rated among the “Top 20 Career Publications” by the Workforce Information Group and a text in various graduate programs in Management and Organizational Leadership—is a lecturer and seminar-leader in the business, educational, governmental, faith-based and human-potential arenas.

IF I HATE CHOOSING, HOW CAN I FOCUS?
So often we are told that in order to get anything done we need to focus. But that sounds a lot like “choose.” If our problem is that we have lots of ideas, interests, and projects calling to us and hate choosing, that well-intentioned advice isn’t very helpful. In this [talk/interview/session] Renaissance Soul Margaret Lobenstine (author of THE RENAISSANCE SOUL: Life Design for People With Too Many Passions to Pick Just One; Random House/Broadway 2006) will clarify the key differences between choosing and focusing and give concrete practical tips on how to utilizing the strengths of one without having to do the impossible other!

Week 2: TRACTION – How to Remove Blocks and
Get into Action with the Steps and a Plan
Remove Your Blocks So Your Creative Business Rocks!™
Why do some creative businesses owners soar while others fail? Why do some creative business owners seem confident and go out and get new clients while others hide in the corner? 80% of what we think, feel and do is controlled by our subconscious mind. Most thoughts and behaviors are patterns that were imprinted into us between the ages of 8-12. These thoughts and behaviors are called the Success Imprint(tm). The Small Business Administration reports that over 50% of small businesses fail in the first five years. Why? Because as human beings we are programmed for survival not success. Old out dated programming can greatly limit how much business and financial success a business owner can have. When the Success Imprint™ is reset with supportive and positive thoughts and behaviors the business owner can operate from a genuine and powerful place and become a magnet to their ideal clients and to money flowing into to their business. They will also discover the #1 secret to making more money, how to get their mind on their team to create success, how to move from struggle to ease in their business, how who they are is a natural magnet for who they are here to serve.
Jenn August is a business hypnotherapist and success coach. She has been called the mother of business hypnotherapy and is one of the world’s leading experts in removing subconscious blocks to business success. John Assaraf of the smash hit The Secret said “Hypnotism is where it’s at and Jenn August knows how to do it and help you!” Jenn has pioneered a patented system called C3 that has helped thousands of business owners clear their subconscious blocks and double, triple and quadruple their income. The most important thing that happens for her clients is that they are no longer living in fear, doubt and feelings of unworthiness. They see their true selves, their true gifts and their true mission and begin to live a life of true purpose and abundance. She is the author of the block buster CD set/workbook: “Remove Your Blocks So Your Business Rocks” ™. As the co-creator of a global association called Spiritual Women Entrepreneurs International (SWE) she gets to support business women all over the world to accomplish their goals. Jenn’s speaking schedule brings her to exotic destinations, in May 2011 she will be speaking on a cruise from Italy to Greece called “Celebrating Abundance” where she will be teaching about how to have the time of your life creating a wildly successful business. Jenn is in the process creating a social entrepreneur curriculum with visionary social entrepreneurial leaders: Jack Canfield, Cynthia Kersey, Marcia Weider, Janet Attwood, Chris Attwood and Julia Butterfly Hill and many more visionary business leaders. Because of Jenn’s stand up and improvisational comedy background she is a very fun and lively speaker inspiring her audiences to believe in themselves and giving them powerful content so they know how to create the success they desire and deserve. http://www.beyondbusinessforwomen.com
MOMENTUM LAB: Planning + Productivity + Community for Creatives with an Aversion To Such Things
If you ever find yourself struggling with the dichotomy between working intuitively and making plans, I invite you to set up a test lab in your mind to put some of your current methods under the benign and enlightening microscope of curiosity. Let’s get to the meat of how to utilize your wild ideas to make the best use of your time, to channel your creative momentum how you want to, and to create a community of support that wants nothing less than to see (and help!) your creativity thrive.
I’m a seeker and a finder, an asker and a listener, a poet and a mute. I intend and aim to live consciously. I live for the biggest little things – for wide skies, getting up early to see the sun rise, my girls’ laughter, my man’s faith in me, and for learning. Can’t get enough of it. I love making things that remind others of their inherent beauty through a sideways sort of resonance that feels a bit like a gentle nudge from a friend saying “yes, you’re doing pretty darn well. Keep on shining.” Having taught sold out workshops all over the United States and internationally, I’m often humbled and inspired by the power of collective creative energy and support. I love gardening, sewing, cooking, making things, generally being domestic, reading and writing and writing about what I’m reading. I eat peaches over the sink. My insides like to boogie while my outsides keep a cool front. I love green shoes and wearing them while perhaps driving a little too fast because I like the way my stomach tickles when I go over that one little hill…You can learn more about me on my blog www.stephanielee.typepad.com as well as glean some new skills from my book “Semiprecious Salvage” (Northlight Books, 2008) – an adventure in making found object jewelry. Keep your eyes peeled for my newest book Plaster Studio (Northlight Books, 2011 – co-authored with Judy Wise) coming May 2011. http://www.stephanielee.typepad.com

Financial Wisdom for Your Creative Soul
Learning to use your creative soul and your personal strengths to deal with how money flows in your life is an essential skill in the twenty first century. Up to this point the world of money has been controlled by left brained, male dominated thinking, yet this is outdated and ineffective for creatives. Though we are often left feeling inadequate at best and despairing at worst, the truth is that you are not missing the money gene, you simply haven’t been taught using language that you understand– the language of image, story and metaphor. Luna Jaffe, CFP, MA does financial planning and money coaching with a visual twist. Luna has been the CEO of two successful fine art companies: Lunasilks and Dreamtime Designs. She now uses her experience as a professional artist, expressive arts psychotherapist and Certified Financial Planner™ to help creatives make peace with money.

Sheri Gaynor is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Registered Expressive Arts Therapist and professional Life Coach. In 1981 she received her Associate of Arts degree from the Art Institute of Ft.
