Do you want to FINALLY finish all those creative projects that are collecting dust on a shelf? Do you want feel the joy of waking up on Monday morning with a creative purpose in mind? Do you want to earn some money from your creative work?

Whether you’re trying to wrangle the motivation to start and be consistent with a creative practice or want to create a thriving creative career (or something in between), I’m here to tell you it can be done!

Creatively-U Academy is the place!

As a former Director of creative teams, I know what it takes to keep all those big ideas and that creative energy aimed at the right target. But more than that, to keep it aimed consistently

Here's the thing -  You must adopt certain mindsets, thought processes, systems, and practices to make it happen. It’s the less sexy stuff about having a creative life! You must set for yourself a solid foundation so you can THEN let that creative mind run free.

And that’s what I teach: How to build that “mind and practice structure" underneath so your "play, creativity, and business" can flourish.

I call it “the left-brained tools for a successful right-brained practice” and it's delivered in a way that’s fun, engaging, and understandable to creative minds.

As creatives, we sometimes don’t know what we don’t know. When things get hard, we don’t know why, and then we give up. It's not your fault! It’s simply a missing tool in your tool kit, that if you had it and knew how to use it, you’d be good-to-go!

And therein lies the beauty of Creatively-U.

By the time you finish the course, you’ll have built a powerful step-by-step plan for your creative process. And you will have developed a professional grade tool kit to help you start and complete your projects!

Say goodbye to procrastination, imposter syndrome, and lack of motivation, inspiration, or time!

Create your BEST creative life!

Creativity: [kree-ey-tiv-i-tee} noun. The use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness.

Before going through Creatively-U Academy, I lacked focus and motivation. I felt anxious and overwhelmed because I just didn’t know what steps to take. I struggled to stay organized and complete some of my projects. Wow did I learn a lot! Now I know how to break those big ideas down into smaller goals. I learned methods for establishing good habits and sparking my motivation.

This course gave me the tools I needed to sharpen my focus and to tackle big creative goals in a logical, orderly manner without becoming overwhelmed. I love the challenge busters and the filler activities. I feel calmer and have a better sense of self. You will learn so much about yourself. You’ll get lots of tips to help you prioritize your goals and actually complete them!

After retiring from a 35-year teaching career and becoming an empty nester after my three daughters left home, I found myself at a loss with what to do with myself. Crafting gifts and home decor had always been an enjoyable hobby, but I had no idea how to expand it into something more.

Since working with Virginia, I’ve learned how to use my strengths and values, along with my creative skills, to help me bring my dream of being my own boss and doing what I love, into reality!

She is helping to build my confidence and assisting me in setting goals and implementing a step-by-step action plan through her mentoring program. This is just what I needed as I start the next chapter of my life!

When you enroll during this special, limited time, you'll get:

The Creatively-U Academy®

  • 8 focused Modules that show you everything you need to do to lay the foundation for a thriving, creative life, focusing on key areas of discovery.
  • A complete, step-by-step framework that shows you how to layer that good foundation with a vision and plan for success. You will learn how to set creative goals and establish habits and rituals without relying on willpower.
  • Worksheets, templates, and downloads to ensure you get the most out of your journey, and to help you if you need to revisit any area in the future.
  • A supportive community of like-minded creatives where we can celebrate your wins and support you in your challenges.

You'll get access to each of the 8 modules, one at a time, over the course of 8 weeks – Modules will be released on Mondays - so that you have a week to dive deep into that work before moving onto the next.

This is intentional. I want to help you avoid becoming overwhelmed, and make sure you can build on the knowledge you acquire at each step.

To say that this course is life-changing would be an understatement. This isn’t just a one-off coaching seminar or self help book. This course brings your values, desires and strengths in line so they work together in harmony and help you get what YOU want in life. If you're looking to change your life or focus on improving certain areas, Virginia can help you develop your why, what, when and how.

The written information is accompanied by meaningful discussion with a personal coach who has taken all of these same steps to revamp her own creative life and career. It’s not just theory, it comes from real life experience…and THAT is the most powerful testimonial you could ever hope to find!

Before this course I didn’t have much confidence. I had things I wanted to do but didn’t feel a sense of purpose. I was stuck and felt like my health stopped me from doing anything. But this course taught me how to work around that. I came up with all kinds of new ideas to fill in those empty spots in my day I usually wasted. Now I feel so much more confident, and I found my “why.”

I found a way to work around my health and now enjoy my creative things. The goal setting module helped a lot, and I got rid of the belief that “I can’t because…” I now feel I CAN do whatever I put my heart into. I would totally recommend this course to anyone. I LOVED it! It wasn’t easy and I really had to think – in a good way! Don't miss out!

Hi, I’m Virginia Wygal, a mixed media collage artist, surface pattern designer, and an online educator. I’m so fortunate to have a creative business that I love and the ability to work on my creative projects from home!  

My last position in the garment industry was wonderful. I was the Director of Product Development at a company the served large retailers. As a Director I led various creative teams through a process and toward a vision. With all the outsourcing, the industry began to shrink, and I was "downsized" out! I patched together other things I thought I'd enjoy, and for a short while I thought it was working. But eventually I felt something was missing! 

So, I pulled out everything I knew from being a director of creative teams and used it on myself! I reclaimed a long-lost creative practice and used those skills to recast my love of fabric, color, and texture into a consistent practice. 

You see that job was about keeping creative minds open, setting some boundaries but allowing to explore and blossom in-between the rails. It was about teaching them the underlying structure and the foundational processes that would keep them grounded. The structure gave them the security to know they could fly with their desires and still stay centered, motivated, fascinated, inspired, and especially…productive! 

What are you looking for? You have your own personal Director right here to help you get there! I’ll give you all the tools you need, and you can use these tools to support and reimagine anything…a creative hobby, a side hustle, a full out new career!  

I know where you are because I've been there. I know what you need because I've been there. I figured it out and I know the secret! As a former director of creative teams, I can help you figure it out too! I have the experience to help you lay a strong foundation for your creativity, however you choose to use it. So, if I can do it in my late 50's, anyone can. 

Creatively-U Academy will help you.
