How it all got started...
In November of 2007, I participated in Leah Piken Kolidas' Art Every Day Month. The final two days of the challenge serendipitously culminated in an out-of-the-box approach to my business. As I was revisiting my business plan (originally a boring, static Word document), I decided to put my own creative spin on it and the Right-Brain Business Plan® was born!
