“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…”

What Our Customers Are Saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!

“I love the live stream events. For me its the best way to watch, learn and be inspired. I can’t ever get enough, so for me if they are a tad longer, that’s great. Especially because there are always so many good questions!

Its great that you are so forthcoming with info as well. Your generosity and the way you teach are your secrets to your success. “

Tex R.

“Overall, I think the workshops are awesome and just keep getting better! In the beginning I was hesitant because I thought the cost was too high. But for the amount and quality of the content, it is worth the money! I love the way you mix up digital and physical art to make mashups. No other online teachers I know of have even tried to go there… Just awesome!

Also it is important to me that your classes work well on mobile devices. I’m glad you’re aware of the technology side of content delivery. Crucial! “

Karen L.

“I have loved all of the workshops I have taken – I got a lot out of every single one! I LOVE the PDF’s so much! I have referred to them often. The prompts have pushed me in new directions! ALL of the videos are fantastic and I have often gone back to re-watch!

Class discussions – I especially love talks on materials! ALL of the downloads and printables have been invaluable! THANK YOU!!! “
