Be who you were before the world told you not to.

Misfits Unanimous is an intimate gathering for those who rage against the status quo. 



People with ideas & visions to make a difference.
Writers, Artisans, & Creative Professionals.
Those who don't just want inspiration but next steps.
Leaders who feel worn out and out-of-place. 


Increase your capacity to create meaningful work.
Meet fellow creators on the same journey.
Make friends with ferocious fear monsters. 
Leave with a roadmap for making vision happen. 


We're not meant to create in a bubble. 
Our imaginations require rest to work.
Self-care doesn't happen by accident.
Neither does work that makes a difference.

A Special Guest

Past guests have appeared on CNN, Mashable, Nashville, and yes, even The Bachelor.



This isn't a conference. It's a conversation. We think your voice matters and can't wait to hear it.


It's like a tuneup for your inner self and outer work.

  • Clarify your vision, take intentional space, hear live performances from special guests, and give your soul a reboot. 

  • Go through the Weird Thinking™ Method: A transformational, butt-kicking 12-step plan for bringing bold ideas to life.

  • Share ideas and feedback with likeminded creators.
