    Authentic Creativity with Bill Heinrich

    Authentic Creativity with Bill Heinrich

    Creativity through the lens of a coach and author

    "We breathe creativity, that's all life is about. We are in a constant state of creation."

    Success isn't always what it seems from the outside. I speak from experience; I found success at a very young age. I was living in one of the most beautiful places on earth and from the outside everything looks perfect, but something was always missing. Surrounded by material success, with everything in place by normal standards, I found myself dissatisfied and nothing seemed to fill the emptiness inside.
    No matter how much money I made or how successful I was I never felt whole. Over the course of time, this feeling got worse, never better, no matter what I did.
    I remember, it was almost 30 years ago that I was so miserable I walked out the door to change my life and I never looked back.
    Prior to starting on my spiritual transformation path, my life was literally out of control! Dysfunction completely controlled my life and I was making decisions based on who I wasn’t. I was literally walking through life blindfolded!
    I'm not blindfolded any longer! I have cracked the code! With nearly 30 years of research, investigation and experimentation I found the answers that allow anyone to live life with passion, purpose and prosperity.
    The information that I have discovered it's so powerful that it creates a fool proof blueprint to follow that guarantee success.
