Willo O'Brien has made a career out of creativity. Her illustrations and designs appear everywhere from the lovable Brizzly (Twitter application) bear mascot, to concert ticket sites (powered by Ticketfly), to the product line she launched in 2007, WilloToons. Her experience being a self-employed artist for almost a decade has made her passionate about empowering other creatives and equipping them with the tools they need to make a living doing what they love.
In the last three years Willo has served as co-founder of two startups, produced a video series and launched multiple programs dedicated to supporting individuals and passionate entrepreneurs. Coining the term Creative Sustainability, she inspires people to stay connected to their self-care, creativity and the magic in their lives.
In addition to online courses, Willo shares her expertise advising startups, coaching creative small business owners and speaking at events around the country.
