About My Business:


I know the workplace / marketplace can sometimes be an awful place for creatives. It wasn’t until my forties that I discovered being an entrepreneur was a perfect fit for my temperament and talents. Thus, the Val Olson Company, LLC, was born out of my own career crisis, then grew into a passion for helping other creatives build a successful business using their unique talents. I'm the founder of a the Prospering Bohemian™ movement, helping creatives break through obstacles to gaining respect and recognition for their talent, creative productivity and the experience of wealth. Val Olson Company, LLC, offers brand design, business coaching, training, and marketing services to those who want a profitable, socially conscious, creatively alive enterprise and see their work as a vehicle for self-discovery, personal growth and development. I'm a nationally known authority, pioneer and trainer in the field of professional coaching, have coached and mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs in starting/expanding their businesses, and helped thousands of people find right livelihood in the workplace. Other: M.A., Human Development, Saint Mary's University, Minneapolis, MN, Licensed Psychologist (emeritus) State of MN, Certified Professional Co-Active Coach, The Coaches Training Institute, San Rafael, CA. National media: PBS Health Diary, Women's Day and Utne Reader. E-books: "The Talent Map: 12 Creative Exercises for Discovering Your Brand", and, "The Prospering Bohemian: 5 Archetypes for Creative Business Success". I'm an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs, a lifelong learner, and a "Scanner". Some of my creative pursuits are writing, making collage and designing jewelry. I love fashion, and communicating brand through personal color and style. I reside in Minneapolis, MN, and Naples, FL. I work over the phone, Skype and the Internet, both in the US and internationally with English-speaking clients.
