While it may be true that most “ideas are a dime a dozen,” some ideas are actually priceless — and that includes at least one of yours. You know… that idea for the new venture you want to launch… or the book you want to write… or the move you want to make — that deeply felt possibility of yours bubbling up from the core of your being and seeking expression.

And yet, at the same time, there also seems to be some forces, both internal and external, working against you that, historically, have had their way with you — those metaphorical Big Bad Wolves on your way to Grandma’s House. But guess what? It doesn’t have to be that way. It doesn’t. You have the power, discernment, courage, and mojo to gracefully work your magic in the world and get the results you want. And that is, precisely, what The Year of Living Creatively is all about — an engaging, dependable, online GPS for your heart’s desire.

HOW IT WORKS: Once a week, you will receive an email with a link to a “fill-in-the-blanks” self-inquiry exercise designed to unlock and unleash your brilliance — a simple, “chiropractic adjustment” of your own, unique creative process. Twenty minutes, per week, is all it will take. That and the willingness to pause, reflect, and respond.

Subscriptions to The Year of Living Creatively will be available in two months (fee still-to-be-determined). If you want to be informed when this service launches, send an email to with the words “The Year of Living Creatively” in the subject line.

“If not YOU, who? If not NOW, when?”

Cultivating Innovation

Your “best and brightest” are the future leaders of your company, but unless they know how to foster a culture of innovation, their impact will be limited. A one-day workshop with us is all they need to begin this journey.

The Hero’s Journey

Innovators are known for their ability to move forward. But sometimes, the best way to move forward is to retreat – especially when it’s time to reinvent yourself. That’s why Idea Champions is now offering 5-day immersive retreats in beautiful San Miguel de Allende. Reboot! Refresh! Renew!


Team Innovation

Innovation is a team sport. Brilliant ideas go nowhere unless your people are aligned, collaborative, and team-oriented. That doesn’t happen automatically, however. It takes intention, clarity, selflessness, and a new way of operating.
