From passion to profit…
At Inner Fire, Outer Light, we believe artists, writers, musicians, and other creatives are an invaluable part of social and environmental change for good — if they can step away from the current exploitative, insecure, and stressful ways of working, and step into sustainable ways of making a living, making a life they enjoy, and making a real difference in the world.
That’s where we come in. We train, coach, support, and facilitate creative change-makers to build creative businesses and organizations with sustainable models that are life-giving to the people who work within them as well as the communities they serve — all while supporting their creative projects and practices. We and our clients share a triple bottom line: income, quality of life, and social impact.
We’ve been doing this work for over a decade and it is built on a lifetime of experience. (In fact, our founder, Leona Morrison, is literally writing the book on it!) During that time, we’ve helped hundreds of creatives build a thriving creative life and livelihood.
Stable income from my art
“A year ago, I was just starting to earn from my art. Now I have stable income from art sales, teaching, and sponsorships. At first, I didn’t think the coaching would be that helpful, but I have found it invaluable.”
—Deb Van Poolen, Fine Artist
Streamlined my systems
“My brain and schedule are much less cluttered with the ‘to-dos’ of scheduling and payment, and with clearer avenues to support my students’ goals.”
— Steve Eulberg, Musician & Teacher
A life that affirms my creativity
“In just a few months, Leona helped me turn my part-time gig into a profitable business. Best of all, she understands the way my artist mind works, and has helped me build a life that affirms my creativity.”
— Meg Hayertz, author
No longer stuck
“Leona helped me see the value in the work I do, offered guidance in shaking off negative self talk, and helped me shape the vision for my workshops and teaching. She helped me see that I can shape my professional life and no longer have to be stuck.”
— Brigit Boyle, musician
