Create Alchemy


Holly O. CreateAlchemy

I'm Holly. I teach women who want to turn their passions into masterpieces how to destroy the chaos taking up all their time and energy so they can find the creative focus to create amazing work. I use Minimalism, Project Management techniques, and Custom Rituals to do it because I've found that if we want to get anything meaningful done in life, we have to work like an Alchemist would've worked, and this is the modern take on that.

I know a lot about all 3 of those things. I'm a certified Project Manager by day, a 5-year Minimalist, and a Ravenclaw-experimenter who tried hundreds of different methods for getting work done on my own passions (novels!) before I hit on the one that worked for not just that, but the rest of my hot-mess-of-a-life problems, too: Rituals, designed with specific criteria, that make forming habits fun, easy, and soulful. 

And productive, of course.

I'm a HUGE fan of getting things done, and finding the best way to do it. I'm also a bit woo (Capricorn and proud!) and I believe that what you do should have meaning. Making cash can be part of that meaning, but it won't sustain you, and that's where Rituals come in.

Want to learn more? There's plenty on the blog for you!


I work like an Alchemist, and here's why:

It took me years to figure out why I was struggling with creating sometimes and not other times. Why was I able to sit down and knock out a book draft one month and the next not be able to pull myself from Facebook?

I didn’t figure it out until I found Minimalism and Alchemy, and now I’m here to share everything I know with you so you can make your passion your masterpiece — and keep your sanity.

It came about from my own craziness. I have always had this unstoppable need to accomplish big dreams. It wasn't unheard of for me to try to accomplish 30 of them at once. I would get burnt out and take a week off to evaluate what mattered to me, then the process would start again. And while I’d get things done, it wasn’t in the most rewarding or most efficient way. This was around the time that I was starkly reminded of how few women are in our history books. 

I wanted a better way to reach my dreams, and I wanted other women to reach theirs, too.

I spent years learning how to work better, yeah, but most importantly: work happier.

Create Alchemy is here to help you find your creativity and never lose it again. It’s about making your passion projects your real passion profits.

It’s about that exhilarating, staggering, unbeatable moment that you finish your Magnum Opus. << This is an Alchemy term and it means masterpiece.

Why settle for mundane when you could do it with enlightenment, amirite?

It’s to teach every woman in the world how to create her own legacy, with her sanity intact.
