This is a spiritual, heart-based business, and I want the logo to have that essence. The essence words for my business are CONNECTION, AUTHENTICITY and INSPIRATION. I like the idea of using a sun in some way as the logo graphic, either literally or implied, but I am open to other "zen" icons that convey the essence of my business. I also draw inspiration from the beach and water, but I don't want the logo to be confused for something literally tied to beach, vacation, etc. Should convey JOY and EASE.
The following is my current bio: "I am a student of the Universe and spiritual coach, and I'd love to connect with you! I love sunshiny days, great big belly laughs, and connecting with like-minded souls. I believe the key to happiness is deciding to be happy and then tapping into your inner whisper as often as possible. Join me on this magical adventure called life!"

My mentor had her logo designed here and she had great things to say about her process. You can see her logo and website here: http://allisoncrow.com/
I will be having a website designed once the logo is complete that will feature the same colors and essence.
