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.
