Council of Muses Creative Mastermind

Council of Muses is a mastermind like no other.  With monthly report outs plus optional 1:1 coaching, it provides all the benefits of support and accountability that you expect and need from a mastermind group.

And then it get really good, because Council of Muses includes monthly creative practices and quarterly creativity retreats to help you develop your creative muscles and add a dash of inspiration to your goal-setting and project planning! 

Beginning in October 2021, I’m introducing 2 new features to provide even more access to support and creative inspiration. First, I’ll be scheduling informal Q&A and Open Studio sessions throughout the year to ensure you have even more support in pursuing your professional goals. Second, I’ll be sharing my “Artist in a Cubicle” hybrid bullet-and-smashbook journaling method in real time as it evolves. Artist in a Cubicle is a tool that can help you develop creative confidence and competence and make creativity an integral part of how you work instead of just a “nice hobby” you get around to when you can spare the time. 

Membership is $25/month if paid monthly, or $250 for the full year, and both memberships include access to my introductory Cosmic Smashbooking (R) course “Critic Begone! 5 Bold Moves to Conquer Your Critic and Build Creative Confidence”.

Special Offer: The administrative support profession has been very hard hit by the COVID pandemic, and I want to help.  If you are looking for work because of the pandemic, shoot me an email at You may be eligible for free monthly membership to Council of Muses!
