Changes have been happening here for the past couple of months. In November, I officially changed my business name to Dream Up, re-examined my vision for my business, and have come up with a mission statement I feel embodies my growth.
Mission: To transform imagination into shareable experiences; to wonder, inspire, and entertain; to nurture curiosity and explore various mediums.
I’m very excited to be able to clarify my life purpose through both my mission statement and my tagline “Tangify Imagination.”
My website is still evolving to reflect my new expanded purpose.
