When we started Apres Creative in 2013, we didn’t wish it into existence. We conceived the idea, planned and worked hard to bring it to life. We could not have achieved the launch of our business, nor the success it has created over the past seven years, without the power of intention.
Before this pandemic “adventure” began, the three of us had the great fortune of attending Oprah Winfrey’s live #2020VisionTour event in Denver. We soaked up the positive energy as she spoke to thousands of attendees, and now her words provide inspiration for challenging times as we count down the days of the stay-at-home order.
