Hello, Courage !

The call to serve is coming through loud and clear.
Today it was a conference call with the Universe, 
brought on by a meeting of the minds and hearts

vintage rotary phone
My creative business partners and I sat around my table, sipping tea and beginning the process of living out our wildest dreams. (I never thought I’d be able to say that!)  I am feeling oh so blessed to be witnessed and supported by these two beautiful souls and kindred spirits. We are taking a HUGE leap of faith together. We are finding that each one of us brings distinctive and valuable talents to the table that have been developed through unique life experiences and our own personal quests for truth. But when they speak, it’s as if my inner voice is sounding. These girls are helping me find my place and showing me that my dream has substance.

We have come to a turning point in our lives where we are choosing to answer the call of the creative, and we are finding that pursuing our passions serves the deeper purpose of making the world a better place. This project (still just a tiny seed) is allowing us to encourage each other to listen to our higher calling. We have the opportunity to be both mentors and students to one another, and that is a very exciting thing for me.

It has been decided that the Business Plan can put her high-heeled feet up for a bit while we dive into the depths of our own barefoot creative souls. First we will do the soul work of identifying and aligning our values, articulating our personal intentions and creating a shared vision and mission that will guide us on the path. We ask of ourselves and of our business:

     What are our core values?
     What do we believe about art, humanity and creativity?
     Who will we serve?
     What service will we provide to our community?

This feels like a very natural way to begin. And that’s what we are all about: organic, process oriented, dream-driven ARTrepreneurship.
This is a call I will drop everything for and answer with a very enthusiastic,
“Hello Courage!”
