“If you feel 50% terrified and 50% exhilarated, then LEAP.
The terror anchors you and keeps you on point.
The exhilaration keeps you buoyant and optimistic.”
  

    -Natalie Nixon

Creativity is your ability to toggle between wonder and rigor to solve problems and create value.
In a world where technology is ubiquitous, creativity is your number 1 asset.
It's a competency that you can exercise to consistently innovate and flourish.

WHAT'S KEEPING YOU UP AT NIGHT?

Le Bron James has a coach. Meryl Streep has directors. Why don’t you have an advisor? Lifelong learning is essential to growth. Typically, the people I advise have the following sorts of concerns:

BECOME FUTURE-FRIENDLY & AMBIGUOUS-CONFIDENT

Getting unstuck... Developing your personal brand... taking your business or project to the next level:
All of these require creative acts of translation.
You will methodically unpack what YOUR special offering and articulate its functional, social and emotional value.
We start with your audacious dreams. I help you identify your unique path forward.
You will learn how to strategically apply creativity and foresight into your work and your life in a sustainable way.
When you become future-friendly and ambiguous-confident you will be able to navigate any terrain and remain buoyant.
