Big love + gratitude!


P.S. As I’ve been writing this course over the last few days, 2 incredibly WONDROUS things have happened:

1. This cotton candy sky appear out of nowhere!


2. I saw my first shooting star last night. I think I squealed with joy. :)

People don’t want perfect, they want real.


If there’s anything I’ve learned in my years of being a solo-preneur, blogger and online workshop leader it’s this: People don’t want perfect, they want real.

When I was designing E-course Bootcamp, it was tempting at times to abandon my own voice in favor of something that sounded more “professional.” My inner critics got really loud, telling me to make it more buttoned up than my usual fare, more linear + less playful.

But a friend of mine gave me excellent advice: She said, “Don’t forget to make it an authentic expression of your spirit! Let it be unconventional and intuitive. Let it be colorful and story-based. Let it be in your true voice. That’s why people are coming to YOU. If they wanted it a different way, they would have gone to someone else.

This course is for creative business people. Writers, coaches, artists and other creative spirits. This course is designed for people who appreciate moving intuitively and from the heart. It’s for folks who want to get sh*t done, but do it in a way that feels authentic and true.

Is that you?

If so, you can join me for the July 20th session of e-course Bootcamp! (Starting this Monday)

This is me, happy.

I’ve been staring at this photo all week, searching my own face for something. “I look happy,” I keep thinking to myself. “I think I’m happy.”

It’s hard to write about this publicly. I still haven’t figured out how to do it in a way that feels true and real and also honors everyone’s stories. But it feels good to share with you – even little windows into my process. I’ve appreciated hearing your stories in return. Maybe we need to all get into the same room one of these days!

For now, I just want to say this: Whatever you are going through, whatever (sh*t)storm you are wading through, there is oxygen on the other side. And the good news? It’s our natural inclination to reach for it.

Our orientation is toward healing, toward wellness, toward joy.
​It’s what our spirit wants.

Sometimes we stay in difficult places for a long time.
But when we’re ready, we make a change.
And we blossom.

I got the best testimonial in my inbox this week + wanted to share it with you:

From start to finish, I was blown away with inspiration, confidence and actionable steps to move closer to putting my work in the world.  As a creative + soulful woman, it’s always been challenging for me to distill all of my ideas and put them into tangible form.  Andrea’s E-course Bootcamp changed that for me. This course is about structure and a plan to help you flesh out your concepts and get to the core of how to teach and serve the people who are waiting for you. Andrea ignites your inner gifts and walks with you step by step to birth your course into the world!  I LOVE Andrea and I loved this experience.  If you have any desire to create a course, I highly recommend everything about E-course Bootcamp. -Julie Santiago

Elevate the Ordinary starts Monday!


Hey guys!

It’s summer! Time to sling that camera over your shoulder + fill your lens with the beauty of the world.

In Elevate the Ordinary, we will explore what it takes to make extraordinary images out of our ordinary days. We will fill our eyes with more beauty, explore our unique creative voices, and take our photos to the next level.

No fancy photography experience or equipment necessary!

What I Believe

  • I believe that there is an opportunity to create extraordinary images right outside your door.
  • I believe that you don’t need fancy equipment or advanced technical skills to create gorgeous work.
  • I believe that creativity is an access point to personal growth and that by exploring our creativity we become more brave, more intuitive and more alive.
  • I believe that when we do it together, it’s way more fun.

Please join me for this juicy summer class!

We’ll begin Monday, June 29th


The magic medicine of the camera.


Sometimes they overstimulate me completely.

The noise, the rowdiness, the fighting, the constant fingers in everyone’s butts. My HSP little heart starts to lose it. After being very shouty (which didn’t work) I pulled out my camera and let them go nuts on the bed while I took photos.

And the camera provided just enough distance. Just enough of a buffer that I could take them in. I could see these little faces with kinder eyes.

It made me remember (again) the magic medicine of the camera.

How it has saved me over and over again- allowing me to be more present, more connected, and able to weather whatever heartache I am experiencing with more ease.

It’s my greatest tool for healing.
It puts me in touch with wonder.
It reminds me of the beauty everywhere.
It shows me that underneath the mess, everything is miraculous.

Will you join me for Elevate the Ordinary this summer?
It starts Monday, June 29th.

Want to launch your e-course this fall?

Join me for the 2nd session of E-course Bootcamp!

We had the most AMAZING group of women (and a few men) join in for the inaugural session of bootcamp and it was the most incredible experience. I’m so inspired by all the beautiful projects + brilliant hearts out there.

Here are a few things the participants in the course are saying!

Having the E-Course Bootcamp container to work within helped me focus my energies and move the course from my head into something real. You have provided us with a delicious mix of practical, creative, and encouraging wisdom for running a successful online e-course. I will be recommending it to all of my fellow coaches and soul-preneurs who are interested in developing their own courses! -Victoria Smith, Softly Wild E-course

I am so happy to have you as a guide here. To be honest: I have had a lot of training and workshops online and I have gotten allergic to strategic plans and funnels and ‘growing a six figure business’ and ‘almost a 7 figure business’ and the ‘5 reasons to avoid this’ and the ‘7 mistakes you can make in that’….So hallelujah for Andrea! You are real, you walk your talk + you are present. You bring in techy and sales issues, but what I really needed was your voice and truth now. THANK YOU. -Marijke

This has been a really excellent course. Your simple, creative and revealing exercises have been extremely helpful. Having a small window into how you bring out the beauty, the essence of a course has been so lovely to experience. Your gentle way of requesting that we step into something powerful in what we are sharing/offering is wonderful. It’s actually really hard to explain you and that of course is why you are amazing to work with. You are just lovely and dynamic and creative and spacious. Thank you. -Katie Maclain

It has been such a valuable and enlightening experience… a perfect balance of the creative and technical aspects of designing a course! -Lara Newell-Barette

Been thinking about creating an e-course?

Screen Shot 2015-04-08 at 10.51.46 AM

What if you could create your course in 5 weeks?

In E-course Bootcamp, you will take your seed of an idea and grow it into a beautiful course that reflects your authentic self.

As the creator of 10 successful e-courses (including Mondo Beyondo, Superhero Photo, Cultivating Courage + Superhero School) I have a lot to share with you about shaping courses for a fun + engaging online experience.

Here’s what you’ll discover, inside:

The journey. Great e-courses (like great stories) have an arc. I will help you shape the course so that your students will be taken on a ride that is meaningful, rich and engaging.

The technical side. I will teach you everything you need to know about the technical aspects of delivering an e-course. We can figure out what options will work the best for you.

The sales page. How to create a sales page that distills your idea into a simple + compelling message.

The map. We will map out your course so that you come away with a table of contents and a template for your class – everything you will need to build your course into something truly remarkable.

Pricing. I have a game that will help you find just the right price.

Engagement. How do you keep your students engaged? How do you pull them back in if participation starts to drop off? We will create ways to keep your students engaged with your material so that they come away feeling satisfied + happy they took your course.

+ so much more!

My courses are successful because they reflect my authentic voice + style. They are playful, simple + engaging. I will teach you how to honor your signature style as well.

I will also be sharing all of my secrets for creating powerful + successful online courses! Plus, you will be immersed in a community of fellow creators that will help motivate you + keep you accountable and on track.

The fun begins Monday, May 4th, 2015. Join me!
