self-employment strategies for idealists

  • You want work-life balance.

  • You want to make your income honestly and in a way that adds value to others.

  • You want to work in a way that aligns with your belief that there is enough to go around if we put the right structures in place, so you are looking for business strategies other than the ultra-competitive.

  • You are or want to be self-employed because of the flexibility it gives you. 


I have a master's degree in psychology from Pepperdine University. I'm a court-rostered mediator. I have 18 years in a successful freelance business in dissertation editing and academic research. I have substantial background knowledge in the social sciences, education, and leadership, with over two decades of reading the latest research in these fields as I helped graduate students to complete their degrees. I enjoy helping clients level up in these fields that have a great impact on culture. 


This site is intended to pass on what I've learned by curating resources to help you... ​

  • Level up in important areas of your life for a synergistic effect.

  • Strategize for business success.

  • Find the information and products that fit your current stage of business.

  • Explore self-employment options.

The self-employed need multiple skill sets to succeed. The regenerative model focuses on systems thinking, which means (a) considering your work in a larger context and (b) that your work success relies on a balanced system that includes your physical, social, financial, and emotional well-being. 


I believe in the principle of focusing on the most noticeable and needed skill sets one has, in a way that feels aligned with ones core values. With our culture facing massive changes and conflicts, more than ever we all are needed to step into regenerative work, regardless of our job title. We also need the encouragement of knowing there are others working toward similar goals, with a similar perspective. -- Ardell Broadbent
