Dear Doodle Friend,
Six years ago, I started my life over and moved to Texas with my two daughters and began my own company called Discovery Doodles, LLC. As a newly single Mom, the only thing I knew how to do was be a colorful, creative doodler... so I built a business that allowed me to do just that.
Let me go back a few more years. In 1996, I was hired by Ernst & Young right out of college to join their Accelerated Solutions Environment. My degree was not in business. I had a Bachelor of Fine Arts. They hired me to bring CREATIVITY to their business strategy meetings.
Over the next five years, I became a professional doodler for Ernst & Young, and my title was Graphic Faciliatator. I would fill over 100 feet of whiteboards with doodles in two hours. Eventually, I started training other team members around the globe. I learned that doodling was a powerful tool for critical thinking, problem solving and strategic planning.
So, when I became a single Mom that was the only thing I knew how to do - Doodle! I traveled all over the world working for companies to help them to bring their ideas to life and Create Solutions You Can See. That first year I was one busy entrepreneur... working my little tail off and traveling to over 60 cities to DOODLE FOR DOLLARS.
I cannot tell you how it exciting it was to start receiving phone calls from big companies asking me to doodle for them. We are talking Google, Wired Magazine, Coca-Cola, Consumer Reports, Deloitte, YWCA, TED MED, and even Disney! All asking me to doodle their BIG IDEAS!!!
While on the road I would eat meals on my own all the time (remember, I'm a single mom traveling to all these cities and so I ate alone a lot). During this time, I would dream. I carried a journal with me everywhere I went and I would write down my big, wild ideas.
Long story REALLY short... on all my flights, I drew on my iPad and started to think of all the ways you can use doodling at Home, School and Work. I eventually pulled all those doodles together to publish my first of book on doodling called, "Discovery Doodles: The Complete Series to Unlock Your Creativity at Home, School & Work". I dreamed of making my very own online Doodle Institute where I would inspire people to PUT PEN TO PAPER to doodle, and I would share everything I learned about building a creative online business.
Also during all that travel, I did a lot of soul searching, a lot of crying (I don't like to talk about that part - but it is a reality) and I would crunch the numbers... how am I going to make a living traveling around the world DOODLING? I kept hearing this voice, "What you are doing, is a skill you can teach to many other people to help them transform their lives too!"
Listen, there are times when opportunity quietly whispers in your ear... and there are times when you PUT PEN TO PAPER and think, "What am I going to do with my life?" That is what I would do on all my flights. "What is the BIG IDEA that is going to Change the World?"
And every time, the answer was to build THE DOODLE INSTITUTE. I remember thinking, "Seriously, am I going to build a place called the Doodle Institute?!" And then, I couldn't ignore the opportunity in front of me, and frankly... I hope neither can you.
I want to invite you to join me to DOODLE YOUR DREAMS. I promise you will love the COURSES, COACHING CALLS & COMMUNITY that is filled with the most loving and creative students.
... and when I read these comments... from all my students... I am so glad I followed my dreams and built The Doodle Institute!
