Spotlight – Bethany Powell and Unlock Coaching

Today’s spot is going in yet another direction. One of the people I met at the Sirens Conference is a writer, but she also offers a unique take on life coaching. She targets her coaching toward those in the more creative fields. Being a writer herself, she has some insights the average life coach may not.

In Bethany’s own words on the Unlock Coaching website:

Are You Pursuing Your Dreams?

Or are you scraping for energy to write after work?

Unable to find focus for art projects on the weekends?

Wishing you had time for both work and play?

UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL FOR MORE WITH COACHING.

Bethany is a lovely person to be around, and she has the ability to help you see where you need to make changes to improve your creative efforts and feel better overall. And I think creatives, even more than those that don’t pursue creative endeavors, sometimes need some help keeping that creative well full and flowing while balancing the more mundane tasks life requires.

You can find information on Unlock Coaching and Bethany on her site, linked above, and on Facebook. She coaches both in-person and long-distance.

If you’re feeling like you could be doing better, doing more, take a look. You never know how a different set of creative eyes might be able to help you out.

Spotlight: Courtney Phi

Last time I spotlighted a group of people. This time I’m putting the spotlight on just one person who is talented in a multitude of artistic and creative areas

Courtney Phi Art

Courtney Phi Art

Her name is Courtney. She does everything from fine art and calligraphy to sewing and embroidery. She inspires my own creative efforts but she’s so good at everything that sometimes I’m also intimidated by her talent.

If you’re a Harry Potter fan, she does personalized, calligraphed Hogwarts Acceptance letters. If you’re in the market for a special piece of artwork, she has an incredible eye and works in many different media.

You can find her on Facebook, purchase art and calligraphy at her Etsy store,  or support her art and creative efforts over on Patreon.  And if you can’t afford to purchase her art but still want to support and encourage her art, please tell your friends and family who might be in the market for a special gift or piece of artwork. Share these links on social media. Drop her a message on her Facebook page.  Shine a little light in her direction.

 

 

Spotlight: Krypton Radio

My first spotlight for this year is not an individual, but rather a whole group of creative and fun people. I spend most of my New Year’s 3-day weekend listening to internet radio – specifically:

Krypton Radio – it’s Sci-Fi for your Wi-Fi!
Krypton Radio - it's Sci-Fi for your Wi-Fi!

Krypton Radio was created in 2009 by Gene Turnbow and friends because they wanted a geek radio station to listen to while gaming. If you’re a geek or fan of speculative fiction, movies, games, anime, or anything along those lines, this is a station for you.

In their own words

Krypton Radio plays an eclectic mix of music from the entire spectrum of nerd culture. We also play old time radio serials, and even have geek DJ’s. We’re the only station in the world that plays music the fans make themselves. We have geek-centric talk shows, radio dramas and a ton of geek tunes. It’s all family safe, so yes, if you’re a kid, or are old enough to have kids, everybody can listen.

Visit their site, give them a  listen. You can stream the station on your computer or mobile device, and listen in-game on Second Life, InWorldz, and Open Sim.

If you like what you hear, give them a shout out on social media. You can find them on Facebook and Twitter. If you’d like to support them, for as little as $1 per month, you can do so at Patreon.
