  4. 4. Working with Open To Create... was great and, its an experience that I would recommend to anyone wanting to bring purpose, clarity and enjoyment totheir creative projects and business. I found Anna to be a highly imaginative coach, the exercises and tools that she gave me not only helped me to become more focused and more organised, they also helped me to fuel my creativity and be mindful not to underestimate the importance of having fun. Its not all about fun though and Anna wont mollycoddle you, she is also a straight talking coach and she can be relied on to be direct if she thinks you are being stubborn or avoidant in any way. Anna was also incredibly generous with her time, each week she emailed notes from our sessions as well as a list of tasks to complete. These notes were invaluable, they meant that I was free to listen fully during our sessions, without worrying that I would forget something, and they have been an invaluable resource to refer back to. Thank you Anna & Open To Create... co- A. Carpenter, Accident & Emergence co-founder, artist, poet and facilitator
