The next Bliss Intensive starts October 1st. Want to be 1st in the know when it launches? Join the Brigade, I’ll be sure to let you know.
I’m looking for wild, passionate, entrepreneurs or wanna-be-a-preneurs. Creatives, Changemakers, Artists, Writers, E-course creators…People who produce tangible items (products, websites, courses, books, art).
Women who are stoked to take their passion and turn it into a living. Women ready to embark. Really. Embark.
Are you ready to stop the excuses and actually live your bliss?
I know the feelings.
“I’m stuck, I can’t move, I’m not good enough, and I have tried all the tools in my kit.”
So if you’re trying to figure out ‘that thing’ that will change the world? Or maybe you just feel stuck and uninspired? How about procrastination, got any of that? Do you find yourself comparing your work/life/business/productivity to that of others?
Let’s cut that shit out together. Let’s get your business doing better, your mindset shifted, and abundance (both joy and cash) moving your way.
Let’s get your life jammin’ and blissed out.
Howdy business and life bliss seeker. I’m Makenna Johnston and I’m the Bliss Doula.
Those feelings I mentioned above? They are super normal for entrepreneuers or wannabe-a-preneurs like you.
But with Kaizen (small steps) and business support, they fade into the background. REALLY FADE. For some, they even disappear.
Using these tools, I’ve turned the pain points of doubt, fear, inertia, and stucked-ness in my life and business into a practice of ease, bliss, confidence, and joy. And having a crew to help me through the rough times made all the difference in the world.
I’m more than qualified to teach ya this stuff. I have worked with dozens of clients–small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists, writers, musicians, social entrepreneurs, and even Fortune 100 companies and executives. Now I can work with you. And while I can’t guarantee you killer results I pretty much know you’ll grow heaps.
Who & What:
A cadre of kickass women, just like you. Entrepreneurs or budding thinking-about-preneuring something. So far there are birth workers, spiritual practitioners, herbalists, wanderlusting travel teachers, creativity coaches, yoga teachers, artists, writers, & online business owners. Many of them corporate refugees ready to quit the rat race, or younger ‘just outta school don’t even wanna join it’ types. You know, just soulful women who pretty much rock. Led by me, the Bliss Doula (here is the long bio)
8 weeks, all about a tribe of women elevating each other, and building your dream lives. Together.
Business and creativity coaching, technical chops honing, support out the wazoo, bliss building, guided meditation loving. A zero competition, 100% supportive environment. No nonsense. No bullying. No quitting.
Complete access to my skills and knowledge in…creativity and business coaching, website usability and conversion, & marketing know-how.
“Working with Makenna has radically changed the way I think and the way I work: more honesty, more integrity, and way more possibility.
The questions she has asked helped me clarify a vague idea into a decisive goal, and then uncovered every step to its successful launch into the world. A total block turned out to be a conflicting priority — named, addressed, problem solved. Makenna is an inspiration sherpa, offering guidance and encouragement and a clear map to the summit.
Work with Makenna, really commit — I promise you’ll end up a better person, and you’ll do the kind of work you’ll be proud of for life.”
Rachel F., Non-Profit Systems Manager

Launches October 1st
Every entrepreneur and creative needs a team to support them. Mentorship, advice, space, and room to push themselves. You and your ideas deserve a sounding board, a place where nuggets can be polished, and a space where you can get feedback on your stuff.
Together we’ll decode your blocks, create actionable steps, craft a roadmap and plan to succeed. The mastermind will give you the insight needed to grow, the coaching will bust up your shit and give space to the stuff on your heart & brain that you’re ready to share with the world.
You deserve a tribe to support you and the encouragement to go the distance. You’ll have accountability, business know how, clarity, ideation help, marketing awesomeness, and so much more. You’ll bust procrastination, money blocks, & self-doubt. And you’ll have people who will cheer you on every step of the way. And heck, you’ll likely find financial gains (in a big way) along the way.
Is this for you?
Are you creative? A business woman? A stay at home mom looking to build something new? A women simply trying to find ease in their daily life and find that bliss? Someone who is looking to bust through their shit and start living their bliss? Trying to find your flow and abundance (both cash & joy) with your dream work? Then probably! But you must be willing to invest in yourself, and your dreams.
Basically ANY woman who is ready to uplevel their business is likely a good fit.
Harsh Reality: The bliss intensive is only for you if you are willing to invest in yourself, and right now. You should be ready to make leaps and bounds of headway within the six-month period of the Mastermind. You shouldn’t join if you see this as something that is an expense, and something that you aren’t ready to kick ass on. This is for the changemakers, the dreamers, and the ‘get shit done’ types. If you’re languid and feeling super stuck, one-on-one is probably a better fit. This mastermind is about connecting with other like-minded individuals, individuals hell bent on crafting killer programs, building new businesses, connecting to new folks, and being present in the world.
Registration opens in August. And WHY YES! There WILL be payment plans.
Still have questions? Shoot me an email (makenna dot johnston at gmail dot com) to ask me any questions you’d like. I’m happy to answer all of them, and more.
How is this Program different?
One-on-One business and creativity focus AND group masterminding. The group and the coaching work together are built to help catapult your dream life and business to new heights.
While there are so many Masterminds out there, this is unique. I’m not going to sell you on some hype that you’re going to make thousands of dollars in one day (I can help you if that is what you want). I’m not going to promise your life is going to change in dramatic ways (but it probably will).
This one is focused on Kaizen Muse Creativity Coaching techniques (small steps, procrastination bustin’, reframes) and CUSTOMIZED group and individual support. It also includes business consulting, guided meditation, self-care prompts, mini group challenges, and a community that will rock your socks off. I’m not a typical coach, and you’ll learn that quickly–My clients seem to like that part.
Praise and Accolades
“I was so lucky to find Makenna. I am a coaching client and was trying to move out of the idea stage of my new business. Her suggestions truly helped me move quickly into launching my dream business. What is so surprising is how quickly she was able to “diagnose” my issues and give me small, manageable steps to get me unstuck and moving forward. In less than two months, I made back more than TEN times the cost of her coaching. She also follows up and takes her coaching clients under her wing, which is a really good place to be! If she wasn’t so talented at so many other things, I’d say she was born to coach!“
Drucilla Pettibone, Creator of FaeriEcology
“Makenna has a knack for creating an experience that helps people get unstuck from places of deep stucked-ness in their businesses and creative projects. If you’re stuck, overwhelmed, or procrastinating–I highly recommend Makenna’s coaching.”
Jill Badonsky, Founder of Kaizen-Muse Creativity Coaching, Author
Want to build a firm foundation to your business? I’ve been working with Makenna for a few months and can attest to her coaching strengths. She is a refiner. I give her dusty nuggets and she helps me shine them into something beautiful.”
Nicole Schwartz, CPM and Founder of Sudharma Birth Services
“Makenna has that overwhelming ability to make everything better by merely showing up, and her greatest strength is how well she listens. No one else can listen, absorb, think about the situation, find a workable solution, and then put the solution into words in such a way that it doesn’t seem so hard or impossible, as well as she can. Plus she sticks around, and is there every step of the way to encourage and offer mentorship. Makenna’s work will change the way you think about your life. I can promise that.”
