Hello! I am Karen Crane, and I aspire to live creatively, every single day.
The entrepreneurial spirit runs high in me. In my almost 40 years of working life, I have had only 2 “real” jobs, for a total of about 6 years, and in both of them, my role was to act like the owner. The rest of the time, I have worked for myself, sometimes with a partner, and sometimes alone. I do what generates passion in my heart and soul. Currently, I work from home, designing jewelry that sells both to individuals and to stores, selling unusual quartz crystals and tuning forks to the same group of friends/customers, and developing this Daughter of Deane website. I also teach workshops on a variety of topics, sharing information about the things I do.
Living out my passions is as essential as breathing for me. Sharing my passions with others was a natural evolution that began about 20 years ago, when women seeking personal empowerment gathered in my living room for what we described as “the Wombspace”. I have been told that my teaching style is friendly, and that my ability to clearly identify and define the elements of whatever topic is the current passion works well for people, and a wonderful group of friends, students and supporters have been attracted to my work. I am extremely grateful for this.
SOCIAL MEDIA and the INTERNET
In the past two years, visions of the possibilities of working via the internet, teaching and selling items that I believe in. fill my head 24 hours a day. This is my current passion, especially learning to use Social Media to spread the word.
I believe in serendipity, that incredible spark of just the right thing that shows up in your life just when you need it. And thanks to a combination of serendipitous circumstances, (including Paul Wilcox, www.pc-plod.com, a patient and fabulous web designer who appeared from the ethers to help me,) this site is up and running and I am moving into the next phase, which is to make it effectively reach a lot more people than I can reach in person.
Thank you so much for coming to this site, and for reading this little profile about me.
I invite you to play around here, and come back often, because we have only scratched the surface of the things that I intend to share here.
I send you blessings and love,
Daughter of Deane
PS. And if you really want to know what I have actually done in my life, the following is a partial list. Most of the things will eventually be addressed through the site, so please let me know if you would like to learn about some particular thing sooner, rather than later!
