Little did I know what was going to happen.

The afternoon started out innocently enough. It was close to Christmas and I was driving home along the highway. I was 20 years old and pretty much everything in my life was in chaos.

I had the honour of working with the students and staff of Homesteader School last week as we created a huge school mural. Luckily, the school has some unique architectural quirks and Mrs. Armstrong (the principle) immediately saw the possibilities.

So…I get a constant stream of requests for teaching the things I’ve learned over time about Creativity.

What it is, where it comes from, how we use it to literally Create the lives we want to live. How we can use it to dream bigger, to perform better, to be changers of our own lives and affect the world in a massive, positive way.
