Artistic Leonie Dawson

Leonie Dawson is an artistic introverted entrepreneur that doesn’t fit in a box. She is a best selling author, creative educator and blogger. She is dedicated to helping you achieve your dreams.

Fun fact: Leonie’s parents are cattle farmers. When she was younger, they told her she can’t open a business because businesses are likely to fail. When she finally made the decision to start a business, she had to “come out” to her parents about it.  They told her that there isn’t a lot of money in art and coaching. She told them that there isn’t a lot of money in cattle farming either!

Key Takeaways: 

  • As an introvert, e-courses are a godsend. They are a way to provide value and help others without requiring a lot of social interaction. 
  • You attract those who are like you.
  • Creating win-win-wins is very rewarding. Win-win-wins are: a win for the customer, a win for the business and a win for a third party.  
  • Success is about more than money, it’s about connecting with people and sharing their stories.  

Memorable Quotes:

  • “I don’t want to have very strict goals of what I want to create and instead I want to allow it to flow through me and just enjoy that creative experience. I love when ideas just kind of jump on me and I run with it and like a couple of days later its out in the world” 
  • “When we go back to social media, everyone is trying to be picture perfect and stuff and I was told by big mastermind people you have to do this and this or no one will follow you and I was like, “You know what? That’s ok.” Those aren’t my people. The people I am able to just be authentic and who I am.” 
  • “Success isn’t about the money…it’s about the little successes…it’s about making a difference in somebody’s life.”
