September 14-20, 2020

One’s destination is never a place, but always a new way of seeing things
– Henry Miller

September 14-20 2020 In the Province of Lucca, Italy
With Creative and Small Business Coach Wendy Batten!
Join us in a Tuscan hillside town for a week of creativity:
Sharing of business ideas, wine tasting, shopping and eating.

You will be cultivating community with other creative people, and taking part in the relaxed Italian way of life.
