Creative Matchmaking

Be a Breakthrough Bestie

Having a breakthrough bestie can be the difference between thriving in your art, business, design, film, music, painting, or writing – or getting totally burned out.

Finding your Breakthrough Bestie is for you if…

  • You have a BHAG… a big, hair, audacious goal. Are you an artist, designer, filmmaker, girl boss, leader, musician, painter, or writer ready to tackle that BHAG?
  • You’ve undertaken personal development before, know what you want/need to do, and now need ongoing encouragement and accountability towards that goal.
  • You genuinely like helping others and you subscribe to an attitude of gratitude.
  • You want to make a difference in your life and in the life of someone else.
