Hello and welcome to Awesome People, I'm Lisa Heinricks your host and creator. I started Awesome People because I wanted world peace….but then everyone laughed at me when I said that….”That's weird” I thought, doesn't everyone want world peace?

Of course we all do, it’s pretty rare that someone doesn't…..but then why do we not have world peace? That's the real question. What I realized is that we can’t have world peace if we are broken people. World Peace starts from within and works it's way out. Simple really. So then we need to fix ourselves!! Not so simple….

I grew up in a very fractured home, constant instability and a persistent reminder that peace was only a construct, something people talked about but nobody actually lived by. As I got older I persevered with my goal of world peace. Group therapy, personal therapy, self help books, tai chi, sports, painting, paint therapy….and then, over time, through a midlife crisis, I finally found the solution, “Life is simple if we let it be.” This is a simple statement but it’s the one truth I know.

Peace comes from within and it’s the path to world peace.

And so this is my mission, to create a lifestyle that helps win the day, win the year, win life! What do I want to accomplish in my life? What kind of person do I wanna be? What kind of legacy will I be leaving behind? How do I give back and pass all this on to others?

What kind of legacy will I leave behind...this is a big question. But it’s really “the” question isn't it? If I know what kind of legacy I want to leave behind then I can live my life accordingly. Simple...

I’m an artist, through and through, I live and breath creativity. So how do I create my legacy to be...well...creative. What is my legacy you ask? To be the best version of myself I can be, to learn and grow in a way that impacts the world with the best possible outcome and to give my knowledge to whoever wants or needs it. This is Awesome People and this is my mission.

Follow Your Destiny, Live Your Truth, Be the Captain.

Captain Awesome is a 12 step program that I believe brings us to balance and harmony within, reclaiming the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 step program for those who don't identify with or haven't found it helpful. It’s a shortcut to balance, 12 steps that lay out the foundation to harmony. Every step comes with personal experiences that I hope helps put a perspective on my process and opens the writing platform for yourself.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

- Maya Angelou

Community HEROES is a showcase of the people around us and the amazing things they do. I truly believe there is awesomeness in all of us. When we share our story we create connection, understanding and acceptance. And this makes the world a better place.

“We cannot succeed when half of us are held back.”

- Malala Yousafzai

Power Girls is all about education and understanding. Women comprise of 50% of the planet yet me are not represented 50% of the time. This is my solution, to showcase woman from around the world who stand up for those who can't, who work to make our world safer and who tirelessly give of themselves to make this life better. My goal is to Bridge that gap of female representation one crayon at a time.

My Goal is to Change the way Art is Sold and Experienced!

Painting is a gift I was given from the gods or my father’s dna or something…..but it's always been there. I express love through my work and want to share that with whoever loves it back and what better way to build community than through art.

I believe art should be affordable and accessible and artists should be able to make a living doing what they love. My win / win solution? Patronage in the form of a Subscription! This solution is incredibly exciting to me and I know you will love it!!

You can subscribe to Awesome People with a monthly pledge of $12, $24 or $36. Each subscriptions comes with a small, medium or large painting. This is a three year subscription that allows me to offer you more than a painting!

Not only do you get a painting but you get access to me and the process of art through my exclusive and private Newsletter. You can pick an existing painting or commission one from me, you will receive a colouring printout every month and if you're so inclined you can have a say in the next Power Girl. You can also request an art lesson or gather your friends and host a paint night in your own home!

My goal is to change the way art is sold and experienced, to learn and grow and be the best version of myself I can be and to pass on my knowledge to everyone who wants it so we can all have that which we all crave so deeply. World peace.

- love and peace, lisa
