How I Got Started:
I started Productive Flourishing as a vehicle to share a lot of the ideas I had about effectively managing a full, fun, and creative life. Along the way, I developed products, services, workshops, and later started speaking and writing a book called “Beyond Bootstrapping: How to Build a Better Business from the Business You’ve Already Built.”
Our company helps professionals, entrepreneurs, and small business teams thrive in life and business. We do this by sharing valuable content, speaking, coaching, consulting, leading workshops, writing books, and developing instructional materials. If there’s a way of getting you the information, motivation, and mojo you need to unleash your creative force on the world, we do it.
