My name is Margaret Olat. I'm a writer, author, & creative entrepreneur.


I write & teach creative entrepreneurs how to thrive at the intersection of creativity, passion, and profit. I do this by helping them uncover genius ideas, identify what to sell, and designing their offers with them.

My clients have also gone from having conflicted ideas to launching their consulting services, products, launching a Kickstarter for a podcast, and getting featured in big media outlets.


I believe you have the right to do it your own way. Your business. Your life. Your rules. But...You need to be profitable too.

My work has been featured on TEDxLincolnSquare, Thought Catalog, Addicted2Success, MSN Money, Thrive Global, The Huffington Post, Career Contessa, UYD Media, Inspired COACH magazine. I’ve been mentioned by the likes of ProBlogger, Brit + Co, Minnesota State University Moorhead. I have also been featured as a career expert on Albert's List, a community of 30,000+ members that connects recruiters and job seekers with the power of referrals.
