About Gentle Warrior
My name is Cali Bird and I help people find the time and courage to be creative alongside other things that you have to do (like work or take care of your family!) I’m guessing that you don’t have a trust fund or lots of servants so you are going to have to keep working and/or looking after your family while scratching that creative itch. I love to help people find ways that they can do their creative projects in realistic bite-size chunks that fit around the other things they have to do in life.
If you want to write, or make music, or make art, jewellery or crafts (or whatever floats your creative boat) it is easy to get caught up in “will I make money from it?” or “am I good enough?” or “I’m too old to do that”.
Forget all of that rubbish. Get on and create in the best way that you can just for the sheer joy of doing it.
If this sounds like just what you were looking for then here are some options for you:
- Sign up in the box at the top of the page for my free Stop Procrastinating, Start Creating mini course. You’ll get some great tips to help you bust through your fears and get creating now.
- Buy the book: Don’t Give Up Your Day Job – Practical ways to lead a fulfilling life and still pay the mortgage. Click on the picture of the book and it will take you through to a website where you can purchase a copy. It’s only £8.99, is an easy read and contains a few exercises that will get you started on a project that will feed your soul.
