About the Create + Connect Project

What is the Create and Connect Project?

Are you making what you’re worth?  Are you doing what you want to be doing?

We sat, for 4 years, in adjacent cubicles working hard and taking on more projects, being curious and learning new things, getting praise without a raise and it wasn’t fulfilling.  

We both wanted to trade the life we had for the life we dreamed about. Simply put, it’s terrifying. But, Winston Churchill says “Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it.”

Buildling your dream business is hard work, really hard work,  but it comes from a place of inspiration, passion and purpose.

It’s easy to get stuck in a creative cul-de-sac:

  • I don’t have a website
  • I’m sure it would be good to get on Twitter and Facebook, but what do I say and do?
  • Would people actually pay me for this?
  • How do I get clients…paying clients!


We are sharing everything you need to know about turning your passion into profit. We do this through video training series, ebooks, interactive programs and live events –  all that teach you different aspects of turning your passion into profit.

You have gifts.  Share them.

Who is Create + Connect Project?

We worked together in the corporate world for 5 years – Katrina as Director of Marketing turned Social Media Strategist and Mariah as Design Intern turned lead graphic and web designer.

We both had big dreams and started making the steps necessary to get ourselves from where we were to where we wanted to be  - taking what we loved to do and turn it into our full time jobs.


The Create + Connect Project was created from really wanting to work on something together and our passion to help other people do what they love doing. We decided to take all of expertise from the corporate world and combine it with everything we’ve done for our businesses that worked and tried to fit it in one neat little package.
