Guiding You to  Creative Solutions … because you are called to creating with your gifts and abilities!


I believe that we are created in the image of a Creator, ergo, we are called to create in all that we do as parents, leaders, managers, community members, salespersons, fundraisers and so on.  This creation stuff is fun and empowering!

The world needs creative solutions.  Luckily, we were all born to create and are, therefore, innately blessed with the potential to be creative.  Let that call and potential work for you.

By learning how to see differently, change perspectives and grow authentically, you will empower yourself, you will find new stations in the playground that you never knew existed.


 I practice what I preach, creativity is part of every day.  Check Still…life, a photo-of-the-day project with musings.



Proud of charity partnership with Project Joy and Hope, providing support and empowerment to prevent and relieve suffering for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

When Dion listens you feel heard and you begin to hear, appreciate, know and trust your own authentic voice, too. I have experienced this as an individual and as part of a group as Dion guides in visioning and planning. He never starts by telling; he always starts by listening. This is what makes Dion unique.”

A Powerful Thought

There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”  ~Sophia Loren




“…how much I gained from your take on creativity. I have been studying creativity intently for years now, so it was awesome to catch sight of some new inroads…your methodology with the Memories to Memoirs ™ seems to combine the left and right brain. It is not just brainstorming, but more organized and the lists play off each other and help me see the layers involved in examining my world.” Keddy Ann Outlaw
