Welcome to our community!

Out of the Box Connections brings together an eclectic medley of worldly individuals who thrive when venturing out of conventional boxes.

With the goal to nurture, educate and inspire, this website features a blog of original content created by our founder, Carrie Osgood, a creative consultant, communications strategist and internationally-recognized creative Jacqueline of many trades. Throughout her accomplished career and non-traditional life, she has never been able to be confined to singular boxes, and as such, she specializes in the personalized touch.

Wherever you may be in the world, you are welcome to contribute to our online community, from submitting ideas and proposing content, to connecting with us on social media. For those of you in Colorado, please join our local community that provides support to professionals who conduct and attract business beyond conventional borders and strive for excellence at the highest level.

We as a community are not defined by rigid classifications, borders, barriers and conformist behaviors. So please help us join forces to remove the all-too prevalent, detrimental disconnect that permeates our society and to come together to cultivate meaningful, impactful connections.

Our manifesto + desires for change + who we are:
