Join my Dream & Scheme Community


Dream & Scheme is a dear place for creative small business owners to share space to connect, brainstorm, work, and cheer each other on.

A cozy community made up of creative small business owners (both product- and service-based) who value kindness and integrity, and growing their business in lasting ways, gradually and sustainably.


Being a part of the Dream & Scheme Community is an open invitation to-


  • participate in virtual quarterly meet-ups, Deep Dives, and camps where we engage in meaningful conversations and topical discussions, brainstorm new ideas and troubleshoot issues, glean from each others' expertise, share resources, get work done, and cheer each other on.

  • join our cozy quarters on Patreon to connect regularly through opt-in activities, reflections, and themed chat threads*

As small business owners working for ourselves, it can so easily feel like a lonely vocation. Dream & Scheme was created as a way to share space and connect with others who truly understand what the day-to-days of running a business are like, and can make the going a little lighter and a lot more meaningful.

Review our Dream & Scheme Community Guidelines

*In addition to retreats and meet-ups, I've built us some cozy quarters for the in-between times, which live on 4 tiers of Patreon, and you're welcome no matter which suits your time, energies, and resources best. You can always move between tiers or take a break altogether as life fluctuates through different seasons. And, you're always welcome back any time. Here's a little introduction to each one:


Dream & Schemer

$5 or $10/month

Creative small business owners  of all mediums who enjoy connecting to brainstorm, work, and cheer each other along.


Schematics prompts and Habitchat threads center on a monthly theme with opportunities to share our small business lives together along the way.

Combined rewards from both Creativity Club and Dream & Scheme Community for creative small business owners.



(coming soon)

Creative small business owners who welcome some gentle accountability to regularly carve out time and space for creative work. A supported way of getting things done while in good company.


Monthly access to 2 open, co-working sessions hosted live on Zoom for 1 hour each per month as a regular "time and place" to show up and get stuff done.




For those who'd like to dip their toes in, peruse my creative endeavors through diary-like Little Chapters posts, and have the chance to connect more regularly.

"Kimberly does such an incredible job gathering a wonderful group of thoughtful creatives/small business owners together. Her materials and content are exceptionally well thought out, and she provides so many helpful worksheets and templates for us to work through on our own, discuss together, and take with us for future planning. She fosters such a genuine, open, and inclusive environment, which gives an introvert like myself the confidence to share my thoughts, hopes, and dreams with others I did not know before".

"Kimberly's gentle guidance makes me really comfortable, and I love how she makes each and every participant feel special. The Dream & Scheme Retreat helped me get a broader vision of my business and where I want to take it, and the whole experience was enlightening, affirming, inspiring, and gentle. As a fledgling business owner, attending Kimberly's retreats have helped me immensely. I've gained new insights and thrived in the company of like-minded creatives. The support and positive emulation within the group is priceless."

"The group is open-hearted. We all have a lot of trust in Kimberly, and I appreciate how organized and on-schedule retreats are without us feeling time-pressured or that we need to hurry along to get through all of the materials and content. I appreciate the chances to follow-up and continue the connections made and to help us adjust plans we make at the beginning of the year."

"Usually group sessions like these would make me feel behind or intimidated, but I felt surprisingly at peace and in a good headspace to reflect without judgement. That's because Kimberly has carefully crafted a gentle and structured environment that fosters deep, intentional thinking, which is great to cure for the non-productive thoughts and overthinking in my head. The vibe is heartfelt, materials very organized, and it's a very safe space for my inner child to come out and participate!"
