These are the links to the people I use and follow online regularly, my rolodex of awesome!

Some are affiliate links, most are not – all are teachers I engage with regularly to improve my life, art and work.

SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) – my first creativity teacher, SARK’s books and online programs have inspired me for years.  If you haven’t found her yet, you are in for a huge treat!

Here is a snippet from her book ‘Make your Creative Dreams Real’.

sarkWhy Dream? Life is a difficult assignment. We are fragile creatures, expected to function at high rates of speed, and asked to accomplish great and small things each day.

These daily activities take enormous amounts of energy. Most things are out of our control. We are surrounded by danger, frustration, grief, and insanity as well as love, hope, ecstasy, and wonder.

Being fully human is an exercise in humility, suffering, grace, and great humor. Things and people all around us die, get broken, or are lost. There is no safety or guarantees.

The way to accomplish the assignment of truly living is to engage fully, richly, and deeply in the living of your dreams. We are made to dream and to live those dreams.”

Leonie Dawson is a mentor to women wanting to create and grow massively successful and heart-centered creative and soulful businesses. She is also an author, retreat leader, visual artist, mama and guide for the tens of thousands who receive her free “AMAZING BIZ + AMAZING LIFE” eZine each week.

heather bestelHeather Bestel – my Feelgood Fairy.  Due to loving what I do, I need support to prevent me overworking, eating on time and getting enough rest and exercise.

To manage my energy levels, especially in the winter when I get SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) I need muchos support on the self-care.  Heather’s coaching and online retreat ‘The Happiness Garden’ has given me this.


Shining Mama – Ioana from Shining Mama not only has the cutest accent EVA but imparts non-smug advice on healthy and shining living, not just for Mamas.  Expect lots of positivity, colour and green smoothies!
