Be Your Finest Art

Dorsey McHugh and Joanne Miller are artists and writers. Together we have written a book BE YOUR FINEST ART released June, 2014.  This group will involve and target anyone who feels they have a creative bent and we believe everyone does. Sometimes that nature is long buried or thought to be frivolous and not to be taken seriously.  We are here to prove otherwise. We want your input as we dialog about the importance of tapping regularly…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
My husband is founder and president............Dan Miller! We got married in 1968 so he has been in my life for a very long time. He is my inspiration and love, my best friend, counselor and mentor in many ways. I hope that being more active in this community will enhance my creative spirit and keep me more aware of what is going on with all our 48 Days followers. We have made amazing friends through this journey!
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a writer, poet, author, speaker, artist and sounding board for 48 Days, LLC. Although I don't hold an active role in the day-to-day activities with 48 Days anymore, I am very involved in helping teach some of the conferences. We are a great team and I love working with him.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I want to use my creative abilities to encourage others to release what is already inside them, thus empowering them to greater success and enjoymet of life. I find myself mentoring other women in their role of parenting, living with an entrepreneur, being creative, writing, etc. I want to continue to be an inspiration and help to those I meet in the 48 Days community and in the world around me.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I want to continue writing and inspiring others who might be struggling in entrepreneurial relationships. I want to add more books to my I Wanna Be series for children. I want to speak out more on empowering women to be their authentic selves and to teach others how tapping into their right brains can greatly enhance their lives.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I feel the basis for any successful endeavor is to have a healthy, happy home and family life. It is essential to success in business, community, church, and any other relationship. I want to use my experiences to mentor others who want to concentrate on this area of their lives. I excel in connecting people and encouraging them towards greater success in their lives.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
More than one website?
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I have four children's books in the I Wanna Be series. I have just released my first book for grown ups called Be Your Finest Art and an accompanying Creative Play Journal. They can be purchased at www.48Days.com/byfa/

What a Night!

Posted on June 26, 2014 at 8:14am 15 Comments

On June 24th Dorsey McHugh and I had our first big book signing event at Two Old Hippies, a "hip" place in Downtown Nashville that is a whole lot of fun! And a very appropriate place for our "debut" due to the fact that Dorsey lived and breathed hippie back in the '60's and early '70s.  I knew about them....but I was too busy being "Suzy Homemaker" for my single parent family…


Our "Baby" is Here!

While we don't actually have a new family member, I feel like I birthed a baby in getting our new book finished.  My friend, Dorsey McHugh and I have finally released our project, Be Your Finest Art, that we have worked on for about a year and a half.  It seems like forever and it was not an easy task.  But I have been thinking with a grateful heart that that year and a half…

Dan and I are at the beach for a few days after attending Michael Hyatt and Ken Davis's LAUNCH conference in Orlando.  It was a wonderful event, as always.  We met some amazing people and learned a lot. Dan spoke and was very well received and we both spent time one-on-one with participants who asked to pick our brains.  We made ourselves available and were happy to do so.  But after a few days of being "on" like that, we usually have to allow ourselves a recovery period.  Perhaps it is our…

Several years ago I read a book that spoke into my life on many levels.  One word jumped from the pages into my brain and I have spent the years since embracing and better understanding the word validation, the process of recognizing the authenticity of one’s emotions or possibilities. 

A well-meaning parent, teacher, or friend can undermine one’s potential by carelessly ignoring or carelessly discounting the importance of one’s passion or feelings.  I am…

My granddaughter, Clara, is very creative.  She is almost seven years old and I learn something from her every time we get into art projects. Which is often.  She has been part of our art classes at the Sanctuary since she was four and she is always an inspiration to us adults in the class because of her fearlessness in attacking any art project.  She just starts it...and no matter what happens she finishes.  Often she has stood up in class and…

Thank you Joanne! You have such an incredible spirit of love, warmth, professionalism and integrity. Thank you for being an example to so many women.

Hi, Joanne! I couldn't find the blog about rebooting our bodies from the message you sent me :( I do believe it is important and just came off of a 3 day juice fast and am currently raw tip 4.  Health and wellness are both a big focus in our household. God bless you!

What an honor to meet you and your precious family at the Sanctuary.  Your creativity and passion is contagious.  I thought I would be learning the "how-to's" of entrepreneurship with a dash of creative inspiration but Innov48 proved to be so much more.  I left with more ideas than I could contain and with a wealth of resources to get me started.  Thank you so much for what you and your dear friend, Darcy, added to the conference.  Best Regards,

Thank you Joanne.

I will be back to the Sanctuary in April. I hope to see you then!

Thank you for the warm Welcome!  I really enjoyed my time with you and your family at the Sanctuary.  Your team truly knows how to make someone feel like family.  Thank You for that.  I look forward to participating.  I'm still learning my way around will become better aquainted soon.  thanks again,  Rafael

Joanne Thank you so much. It's always such a pleasure to read your posts.

Thank you for commenting back and Thank you for all that you and Dan do to help people out!  I typed the rough draft for a book about a little girl going on a tour of her grandparent's heritage farm and they meet all the different kinds of chickens.  The tour is led by "Paula" the Plymouth Rock chicken and the girl"Zoey" goes with her uncles.(They characters are based on my family members and my farm).  It is to be part of a series of books written with the objective to help teach K-2nd graders about heritage animals, heirloom vegetables, and organic farming. I do already belong to Kent's group and that has been a big help in itself! I will also join the other groups you have mentioned.

My questions are since I have never been this far are "What is my next move", "What can I expect to pay for an illustrator?""How do I get started with self publishing?" and just about any other question you could think of or I would be grateful for any advice you could give.  Thank you bunches and God Bless!

Hi Joanne,

I'm glad to have met you, too.  

You and Dorsey were such an encouragement to me.  I needed to hear that we are all artists!  I tend to discount to myself my abilities, but now I'm  telling myself that I just need to develop the artist within me.  Thank you.

Hi Joanne,

It was great hearing your story, and finally meeting Dorsey. You two are an awesome pair of kindred spirits. I am hoping to come up early for one of the trips this year and drop in on an art class. They sound like an absolute blast!
