I believe we all have a dream, an idea of who we could one day become.

Maybe you can’t remember your dream, but I know it’s in there. 

I help people every day reconnect with their dreams so they can live happier, more purposeful lives, and I want to help you too! 

You can find loads of ways to do this on the site; from videos and podcast to blog posts and ways to connect.

Once you know your dream, I show you the path to make those dreams come true, and it’s different from what everyone else is telling you to do. 

No ‘Go Big or Go Home’.  Around here, we Start Small to Live Big.

I like to think of my digital home like caffeine for dreams. 

So grab a cuppa and let’s go Live Big!


When you grow old, make sure you can say you chased your big life, you didn’t just settle for it.


I grew up in Vermont but have been a southern girl since leaving college. I had an award-winning sales career before tossing it in to spend more time with family and chase my entrepreneurial dreams. I’ve owned a CrossFit gym, created a successful online business, written several books and speak all over the country! I’ve had some failures, and I’m not afraid to share because I think failure is where it’s at. It’s how we learn and grow! 


The Art of Living Big brings you inspiration to how you live your every day by sharing interviews & tips to living a Big Life. They have tried something new, gone against the grain or are just living mindfully with small, consistent steps towards the life that brings them joy. We can learn from their stories and begin to believe in ourselves along the way.


I’d love to connect and find out what you need & what inspires you!  You can find me all over social media @Betsypake (or use the links in the upper right-hand corner!) And be sure to jump into my free Facebook group here!


I’ve been featured on many podcasts and radio shows as well as a keynote speaker for many organizations.  I’d love to work with your team to create inspiring events too!
