My Story

My name is Ruby McGuire, I'm a Business Coach and Mentor at Rock Your Fabulous Biz. By day, I empower solopreneurs to conquer business challenges, from sales tactics to mindset blocks. But outside of business, I'm deeply passionate about Zentangle—an art form that brings mindfulness without needing artistic expertise.

Over a decade ago, Zentangle caught my eye during a casual Pinterest scroll. It became my peaceful escape from the chaos of entrepreneurship—a place where time melts away in intricate patterns. During tough times, it became my solace, restoring balance. I practice a 'slow living' way of life, which Zentangle philosophies fit perfectly into. Now, as a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT), this art form continues to transform my life.
