Let your Passion Projects and Creative Business finally bloom.
Clear Skies for You
8 week coaching and mentoring program is your answer if you are in the
Creative and Experience Industries.
Crystallize your Visions, get clear with your Messaging and feel totally Authentic and in sync with your Offerings.
Let's work together to clear the clouds of uncertainty and overwhelm so you are deeply engaged with your Heart & Soul Projects or Business, your team, your customers & your community.
It’s fair to say, a dark cloud descended over the whole world, and acutely so on the Creative and Experience Industries. As with every challenge there are opportunities. This is a pivotal time for us Creatives and Experience service providers, now more than ever, to capture an emerging market that craves the less mundane, the off the beaten track, the out of the box ideas that resonate with their hunger for transformative safe and unique products, experiences and offerings.
Thank God, in the Caribbean, we live in our slice of Paradise, that may be all that's keeping us sane, so as we look to emerge out the other side of the COVID tunnel, with so many COVID restrictions, requirements and certifications changing almost weekly. It is additionally daunting to figure out how to make the connection and engage with our customers. It is no wonder that stakeholders and business owners are feeling uncertain, worried and anxious and somewhat overwhelmed by it all.
We believe, that for those of us in the Creative, Events, Tourism & Hospitality industries, the way to be relevant is to stay true to who you ARE... to more than pivot but to evolve, on every level, starting with yourselves, your stakeholders. To provide a unique brand of offering that cannot be replicated because after all, it IS based on YOU, from your Values, your inspiring lifelong Passions, your successful Past Experiences and those Talents and Skills you have honed over the years.
Gone are the days of Disneyfication and one-size-fits-all...
This is achieved by drilling down to your ideal Legacy-driven life, business, experiential service and product that you would love to embrace, create and deliver daily.
Maybe we can consider this era a blessing?
