Hi! I'm Annie.
I'm retired now, and for me that is just the beginning of a new phase of life, with all its possibilities, challenges and opportunities to serve and to monetize…all lifelong passions of mine. I continue to be a Baby Boomer Entrepreneur and a Creative Thinker…that gives me joy, purpose and the chance to continue growing and becoming all I can be.
What I have come to believe and am passionate to share with others, is that we can have our highest and best, most fulfilling and joyful life, by using Creative Life Design principles. To design your life you need to be intentional. The place to begin is to know where you are. It all starts here.
Then apply mindfulness to the aspects of your life that you want to design to be the best it can be. There are various aspects to our lives that are covered in Annie's Tips. I recommend you begin with our newsletter by signing up for the free EBook, The Law of Attraction. Then you can focus on the life aspects that ring out most clearly for you to concentrate on.
I am excited to share tips and ideas with you, to help you do creative life design to get the life you have always wanted. I look forward to hearing from you as you find and implement ideas that work for you. Let's celebrate our lives together!
Tell Me How You Use Creative Life Design to Attract What You Want in Life
I retired from owning and operating my own businesses, and said, “OK, now what?” Now that I was free of responsibility for product and people, what did I want to do to fulfill my life? I have a wonderful husband, 4 fabulous kids and 5 fabulouser grands. I love and adore them, and it was always GRAND CENTRAL STATION at my house! I used to make full meals and was a great cook. WELL, in these later years the gourmet meals tend to show a bit.
I have owned my own real estate business in the past. I started out as a stockbroker and technical analyst on Wall Street. There have been a lot of experiences over the years. In the midst of all the roles in life, one thing that has persisted for me has been the stimulation and growth and personal satisfaction that come from creative pursuits. Whether it was putting on a birthday party for my kids, or learning international and assorted American ways of cooking, or designing gardens and landscapes, or buying an old decrepit house and redesigning and redeveloping it, or growing and developing my spiritual essence, I have always had the joy of bringing creativity and art to the equation as I serve others and as I pursue monetization of at least some of what interests me.
Today, I am active in my community as a volunteer with our local school District. I took up painting with acrylics and pastels a few years ago, and love it! I can get lost in a painting for hours and forget to eat! Which is not such a bad thing either.
I am active in my spiritual community, and believe in Sacred Communication through meditation and sharing, and in Divine Energetic Healing. Part of healing comes from application of information developed over the eons and part directly from God, I believe.
It is my joy to share the influences, the benefits and helpful hints on tools, equipment, ideas and transformative creativity with others, as they develop art and creative approaches to living.
I also talk about blogging, and the things I have learned from very successful online gurus that help me to be able to develop this website and my ability to reach out to fellow baby boomers. I am convinced this is a tool that can help many others, to effectively share what they are passionate about. Let's all grow and explore together!
Still, I thrive on creative outlets! I took up painting. And I love it. Painting is probably in my DNA. My Mom, my Dad, my Grandfather, my Grandmother… It was inevitable! Writing is a good creative outlet for me, too.
Now that I am a Senior, I have a deep regard for the challenges and possibilities for fulfilling and creative living. Eating what is right for you, with balance, is a key to maintaining good health and wellness at any age. For balance in all aspects as we design our lives, we need to be mindful about a healthy diet. You will find tips on healthy eating, and whether or not supplements are a good idea, too.

As creative lifelong learners, we all develop our own style. We are individuals expressing that individuality in amazing ways. I want to share resources so you can do just that. What fun we can have as a community as we develop this part of our lives together!
