Hello, I’m Valerie.

Want to do what you love and get paid for it?  I’m here to help.

Starting a new creative business is an exciting adventure with the right support.  

I nurture both you and your business idea.

You bring the passion and vision for your life, and I’ll help with the practicality.

I believe in taking educated risks – smart and savvy.  It takes courage.  And we all need support.

I’ve spent 9 years working with women changing their lives for the better, first as a psychotherapist and then as a business mentor.  I found freedom and happiness in starting my own business.  I’d love to share with you what I’ve learned through my own experience and through the years I’ve spent mentoring others.

Taking the entrepreneurial road allows me to follow my natural creative rhythms.  You can design a business that really makes you happy.

Life can be filled with flexibility, travel, independence and -most importantly- creative freedom.

My dream business allows me to move to London if it suits me, work from the coffee shop over cappuccinos, or run my business with my cats curled up beside me.

I’m in a unique position to mentor creatives and artists because at heart I am one. 

From theater acting to drawing to writing music to photography, I’ve done just about everything.  I understand the creative mind and process.

We need things to be both pretty and practical.

For creative entrepreneurs, artistic expression is like oxygen. It is not frivolous. 

Creative entrepreneurs struggle with having to choose from a hundred inspired ideas.   They experience the vulnerability of sharing their art.

I coach other women because mentorship is by far what’s helped me grow my business the most. When I’ve been stuck in my own confusion, my mentors helped me to get clear.

I’m blessed to wake up everyday inspired and excited to work on my business.  But it wasn’t always that way.

Today my work is literally my favorite thing to do.  Ten years ago I was wasting away in an office, calling insurance companies all day.   Today I feel a breathtaking mix of joy and relief.  I’m so grateful I took the risk to do what really makes me happy.  I simply had to help other women to do the same.

For me it’s been a long process, but I’ve taken what I’ve learned to get you to your dream business faster. 

Let me help you put something beautiful into the world.
