There is a huge amount of content contained in Traci’s DREAM BIG creative business incubator courses, which gives you a lot of food for thought. Through doing these courses with Traci, I’ve discovered that there’s a lot more to running an art business than just creating art. For the first time ever, I’ve actually written out a list of my business goals. I’m also keeping a planner to keep track of my business progress; another first for me. One thing I’ve learned is that I need to think outside the traditional business model for artists and look for other opportunities. Traci is an amazing teacher. She is so giving of her knowledge and experience. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to build his or her art business.

“Thank you SO much Traci!  Ever since taking your business class, I’ve been working my butt off…and, true to your word from other courses, I quit worrying about “my style” and just began to create…every day…for a little over two years now…I opened my Etsy shop, for real (actually opened it in 2007 but never listed anything…originally I was going to sell dolls) on June 1, 2012…I think in a little over 3 or 4 months I only had a few sales…sales were sporadic for another six months…BUT as I built my inventory, and began listing at least one new item every day for the past six months, my sales are almost daily!!!  I have a LONG way to go, but I really need to thank you for the courses you’ve done, especially Dream Big…”
