Rachel Ridge became a professional artist at age 35, wrote her first book and started a speaking career at 50, and became a life coach/creativity coach at 56. She believes it is never too late to pursue your dreams, and loves helping people do just that.

Aided by a stray donkey who arrived on her doorstep and never left, Rachel boot-strapped her art and design business through the Great Recession, all while raising a family and honing her story-telling craft. As an author and speaker, she delights audiences with humor and insight; as a creative coach she helps clients discover their passions, find their creative niches, and launch whole-hearted businesses. Mom to three adult children, and now two rescue donkeys. Nana to five.
