Author, Teacher, Coach, Artist, Hippie
Author of the Barefoot Living Guide, Danielle Nelson is a hippie, teacher, artist, business coach and signal-booster. In addition to spreading the message of universal awesomeness, she helps entrepreneurs and creative spirits get unstuck, clear, and focused, pointed in the right direction, and use the momentum from previous successes. On her website, lifeunconstrained.com, you’ll discover a wealth of resources, guides, and knowledge created to help you build a better business and a better life.
About her mission and purpose, Dani says, “I’ve been an entrepreneur for over a decade, and for roughly half of that I ran a web design and development firm. What I saw there was that a great number of folks don’t need a new website, or even a better marketing plan…what they need is clarity. A way to wrap their head around not just their goals and vision, but all of the pieces and parts that go into creating a business and helping it grow – and to not feel like crap in the process. Learning that changed my life.
“I don’t make websites anymore. Instead, I write, teach, poke things with sticks, and revel in the questions that you might not want to hear. Because it’s not about doing the “right thing”, or following Ten Easy Steps to Success. It’s about eschewing expectations, getting connected to what you already know, and skipping down the path laid out before you hand-in-hand with fear. It’s about universal awesomeness, and believing that you have amazing things to share with the world. I’m out to help you get there.”

“People might argue with me,” Matt says, “but I believe that the #1 best thing we could do for ourselves, as a society, is to OPEN our right-brain, and allow our creativity, love, and passion to come thru. Our left-brain logical thinking side (IQ) has been king for hundreds of years, while our right-brain creative feeling side (EQ) has been denied, lied about and generally disrespected. That means people are making daily decisions based on one part of their brain, and therefore not getting the whole picture. This phenomenon is, in my opinion, the fundamental flaw in our society — leading to stress, depression, rage, abuse, violence, crime, mental health issues, addictions (including Almost Alcoholics), divorce, suicide, even war. The good news is that we can change it! We are finding that EQ awareness and training allows people to change at a fundamental, foundational level.”
Matt cites extensive stats on how EQ has helped:
• To the heart: self-esteem, belonging, life satisfaction, happiness, relationships, success
• Emotional healing: anxiety, anger, depression, guilt, shame, fear, pain, power and control issues, violation, trauma, recovery… even physical healing(!)
• Kids in school: confidence, cooperation, commitment, anti-bullying
• People at work: communication skills, customer service, employee retention, team-building, even sales results!
• Families: communications, “I” messages, active listening, intention, language of feelings
• Teams everywhere: cooperation, teamwork, success, camaraderie
In summary, Matt declares: “I believe that a focus on Emotional Literacy awareness and training could very possibly CHANGE THE WORLD, so I have made a person mission to show the world the wonder and joy of having a high EQ!”
Matt knows the way!
Matt says, “EQ is FREE! – Totally, completely, absolutely, 100% Free! Take as much as you want, for as long as you live, every moment of every day!”

Installation Artist, Visual Revelationist, Weathermaker
Berndnaut Smilde currently resides in Amsterdam. His work consists of installations, sculptures and photos. Using his daily surroundings and spaces as motives, Berndnaut is interested in the moment of friction between construction and deconstruction. With this he refers to both the physical state of a building as well as a moment of revelation that depicts hope or perishableness. Berndnaut analyses spaces and their appearance and takes them apart to work with details. The choices he makes are often situations that deal with duality. They question: inside and outside, temporality, size, the function of materials and architectural elements.
Berndnaut holds an MA from the Frank Mohr Institute, Groningen. His awards include a start stipend form The Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture. He was a resident artist at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin 2008.
