"Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching takes into account the dynamics of creative individuals...that other coaching approaches may overlook, such as: resistance to authority, the non-linear nature of the creative process, high-sensitivity, creativity related avoidance, an indirect approach to setting intentions (setting "goals" can actually block a creative person), the need for breaks, daydreaming, and downtime, the need for nurturing and compassion, plugging into creative strengths and successes, question asking vs directives." - Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching's founder Jill Badonsky
Attention writers, visual artists, singer-songwriters, bloggers and other artistic explorers - do you have a fierce creative dream but struggle with obstacles that get in the way of doing what you love? Take heart - there is hope!
Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching is for any artist that has a creative dream and benefits from having structured, weekly individual attention. During the sessions, I won’t be acting as “guest lecturer.” Actually, you will be doing most of the talking. The work is about getting in touch with what you already know, with the help of a guide that can get you there. You will also watch as you more effortlessly make steady progress toward your creative goals and dreams! Phone sessions are 1 hour and include an additional 15 minutes Parallel Universe Time / virtual work sessions per week. Email sessions can be used on an as-needed basis.
ABOUT 1-1 creativity coaching:
DO you have a deep creative call that keeps surfacing and re-surfacing in your life? DO you find yourself pushing that call to the side due to life’s obligations? DO you think your creative life would benefit from giving yourself more structured time and breathing room? Would you benefit from having tools to overcome habits of overwhelm, procrastination, low self-esteem, self-sabotage, and perfectionism? The tools of Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching are the most effective remedies I have found, as an author, to help take you (small step by small step) to the fulfillment of your creative dreams. Your sense of “having the time” will actually expand and you will feel so much support in the midst of your process. Whether you're starting or finishing a novel or memoir, working on getting your artwork into galleries, a singer-songwriter who wants to gain more resilience, or any other kind of artistic explorer, the coaching process will be deeply powerful for you as we shine a bright light on your beautiful and brave path.

We'll start with a questionnaire, and I'll get to know more about your goals, needs, and any specific obstacles you're hoping to work through. Then, we'll start a rich and fulfilling email conversation, where I'll cater the session to your needs, and provide coaching tools, accountability and structure, general advice and inspiration, and writing prompts if you want them. Sign up for a package of 4 emails, and you are free to use them as you need the support!

I never considered myself a writer before Nina coached me through my second book. Her support was invaluable in getting my words onto the page, as writing for me is quite an emotional journey, and I basically just bleed my experiences out through my fingertips. I felt like I had a friend, a confidant, and someone who truly supported my efforts backing me the entire way. The encouragement and heartfelt commitment Nina had for my efforts was invaluable, and what I received was much more than anything I could have simply paid for or put a price on. Her intuition and guidance kept me strong through the entire process, and I look forward to a continued connection. I would not hesitate to utilize her services again or to take an upcoming class or workshop.Ren Hurst
I've been a creative person my whole life, yet have never truly felt the beauty of what I have created. The voices in my head would say "You must keep working until it's perfect," or "Everyone else is more talented than you." I've experienced overwhelm and fear and didn't know what to do about it, until I allowed Nina to coach me. This was a huge shift, since I've always gone it alone...The hardest thing for me to do was to let in the depth of my accomplishments. Nina guided me through gentle exercises and a little at a time I felt freedom from my creative blocks. Now I have tools to give me a new perspective on myself and my creative life! I can't thank you enough Nina!Martha Reich
Nina Hart's creativity coaching was one of the best things I have ever done in terms of growth acceleration. I would boldly recommend her help in the process of creating art of any kind. My work has benefitted immensely from her guidance. I wish I had sought her out years ago.William Marshall
Working with Nina as a creativity coach has been a juicy blend of exploration and fun. By tending to my often prickly muse, I began to value my creative process and devote the time and energy it needs to flourish. Nina encouraged me to allow a quality of playfulness into my writing, not taking it so seriously or falling into the trap of comparison. The coaching process has been like opening a door to a walled garden, a place that I would visit from time to time but which, due to lack of care, had become overrun with weeds. Nina's experienced hand helped me see the possibilities rather than the mess that had to be cleaned up or ignored. With her gentle guidance, we oiled the rusty hinges of the gate, making it more accessible...Deirdre Stiles
It has been quite a year, hasn’t it? I am so glad I took your course this summer and your creativity coaching this fall. I think about you and use your tools and advice virtually every day. A year ago, I was making some progress, creatively speaking, but between your course and coaching and other support I have received, I am making solid strides now and realizing that the roadblocks I once encountered were ones I put up myself; there’s really no reason why dreams can’t be realized!Patty M.
