Davia King — Artist & Budding World Traveler

From an email I sent out to my mailing list:

Hi family!

I have a fun and inspiring story to share with you.

Two months ago, I received a phone call from artist Davia King. She shared with me that it was one of her life dreams to travel to Peru with me in May. And, she said, “I’m not sure how I can afford to go on your trip.”

There was a brief pause.

“Great!” I responded. “That’s one of my favorite things to hear!”

Again there was a pause on the phone; my answer hadn’t been what she had expected. You see, I love working with people about getting creative about money.

“What do you do?” I asked.

“I work at a hotel and I’m an artist,” she shared.

“Have you ever sold your art?” I asked.

She had, but only a couple times. I shared with her, “If you commit to Peru, I will help you raise funds to go on the trip.”

It took her about two seconds to decide. “I’m in!”

Within two hours she had purchased her plane ticket and the adventure began. We hosted two art events with Davia, and I’m happy to share that she paid for her whole trip by SELLING HER ART – in less than six weeks!


It takes a lot of courage to put yourself out there, and Davia did it in a big way.

SO, I ask you…what big experience have you put off because you DIDN’T HAVE THE MONEY?

Maybe it’s not the money that’s in the way…

How creative and courageous are you willing to be to have the experiences you deeply desire?

An additional note: During our trip to Peru, Davia sold another large piece of her art to one of the other participants on the trip. She not only paid for her trip, but actually made a profit, just by committing to the adventure. She now has her eyes on some much bigger goals in Hollywood, goals that she never before would have allowed herself to dream.
