shoulda coulda woulda
I am asked over and over again how Rick and I created this awesome lifestyle we now live and of course why glamping?
The answer is simple and not so simple. It takes courage, vision, a little nonsense mixed in, work, dreams, paying attention, looking for the possibilities, patience, determination, a whole lotta ‘one day at a times’, persistence, and passion! I am sure I left another 100 or so things out but you get my drift.
As I tour the property with our guests over and over and over again telling our story I am reminded how it all began and how a wee bitty dream became a vision and it evolved and grew and blossomed. After less than 3 years we have an amazing business which continues to blossom and produce new growth for us. We have been written up in several national and local magazines, newspapers around the country, Georgia traveler, TN public TV, MTV, blogged about, we went viral with AT&T home page, yahoo, AOL and we continue to be recognized as we go into 2012 as one of the Best outdoor experiences in the US.
You might be asking why does it happen for us and not others….Are we so special? well yes and no:) Did we buy our way in? no! Did we invest $$$ in tons of marketing? no!
There are things we did do and continue to do every day of our lives. They say it was the left brainers that took the world by storm in the industrial age. As that era crashed a new age has come i like to call it the creative age. This time of turmoil in our country motivates me -makes me realize we have to take care of ourselves. The day of ‘get a good education’ and ‘work hard for 40 or so years to get that pension’ are over. We have to think outside the box! We have to find our passion and go for life’s greatest reward -living an authentic life with no regrets- no shoulda coulda wouldas for us! We were all born creative…
Join me in 2012 as I launch my creative workshops and year long business consulting where I will be ‘inspiring creative lives and businesses’.
On December 3rd I will host my first one day event preparing for the 2012 year of CHANGE. Find out who you are, where you are and what you love! The day will be filled with creative exercises that will both open your hearts and eyes to where you are on life’s journey.

I spent many years helping start -ups find their way. I love small business and/ or people who want to change their lives. To see an idea or dream manifest into a vision with direction that becomes a livelihood has such unbelievable rewards.
