About This Class


Creatives are naturally curious. Curiosity is embedded in our viewpoints, our hearts and the paths we have chosen to take to bring our work to the world.

And being part of the Naturally Curious class has its ups and downs. Let’s talk about ideas for now.

We have a lot of them!

Ideas are coming at us all the time, not just from within but from our loved ones who mean well, social media, regular media and apparently casual observers have ideas for us as well!

But we only have so many hours in a day or years in a career—so we want to know which one of them is the RIGHT one to pursue! (and let’s be quick about it, right?)

Here are some things I know for sure:

  • You are a professional or aspiring creative; a writer, teacher, artist, or crafter.
  • You generate a lot of ideas.
  • You need and want to grow your income therefore you have a certain level of anxiety (like all. the. time.)
  • And you figure, “well, if I just come up with more ideas, I’ll figure this whole thing out”, right?

In this short class, I will walk you through the 5 questions (and 4 answers) that I have developed over the years to develop my licensed art collections, my best-selling books and to help my coaching clients who just want to move their creative ideas further out into the world.

I’m sharing it because I don’t want you to try and follow through with every single thing that seems like a possibility—or worse, give up your dreams completely. A balanced life is a beautiful thing and I want you to have enough time in your life to relax, recharge, have a happy family while you pursue your ideas.

The two handouts are here to help you quickly assess the ideas that make sense to follow and the ones that you can leave behind— at least for now. After you’ve gone through the short lessons, let me know if you have any questions. If you’ve taken any of my other classes, you know that I try to answer as quickly and thoroughly as possible.
