Work with Zhena

Queen Maker • Business Mystic • Soul Strategist • Publisher • Mentor
I built a multi-million-dollar brand from my kitchen hobby.

I had no college degree, no golden “Rolodex,” and no internet when I started. So, how did I do it? I had authentic expression, passion, purpose and an idea that uplifted and shimmied everyone I came across. Through the magic of divine order, clarified action, purpose-driven team building, passionate planning, and activated, focused authenticity I was able to blast past the competition AND help end poverty for thousands of tea workers.

I raised $8.5M in angel, venture, and collaborative capital from investors during the 2007/08 financial crash—not because the world needed another tea company, but because the mission and marketing of the tea company were so compelling. You see, we were educating the industry to bring fair trade products into grocers like Wal-Mart, Safeway, and Kroger, and all across America - all while fulfilling a mission to use the funds to build schools and homes for tea workers in Asia and South America.

Build your business to change the world.

I believe business has the greatest chance of healing the world for the better, and I believe entrepreneurs are the innovators who will bring solutions to humanity in challenging times. The world needs your voice and ideas, the world needs more conscious people to succeed. 

If you’re hoping to start or grow a brand, you will soon discover the deep importance of a clear mission that matches your soul’s evolutionary journey. To continue to be inspired daily as you grow your business takes perspective, mentoring, asking the right questions, and a hefty dose of savvy. 

Below you will find a list of my business and literary services, workshops and events. While much of my time is focused on Enliven Books, I take clients with a compelling idea, project, or desire to make a substantial difference in the world. Let’s chat if you’re interested in seeing if we’re a fit.

In Light,
