what students are saying

Building Your Audience with Live Video

with Casey Zeman
What a BLAST! I learned so much and had fun too. Casey knows all about marketing and using Google Hangout to connect with your community. I am applying what I learned in my business.
— Gene Hammett

Start a Handmade Business

with Kari Chapin
She understands what it's like to start a handmade business--the triumphs, the challenges, the confusion--and she reaches out to her audience in a way that makes us feel understood, feel like we belong, and feel very much empowered to succeed. From her introduction to her participation in the followup conversations on Facebook, Kari has not set a foot wrong. She's a born leader. And I have finally found my tribe.
— Marsha Law

Story on a Plate: Food Photography & Styling

with Todd Porter and Diane Cu
Inspiring, informative, and deeply honest. Todd and Diane shared not just their immense technical skills and business acumen, but their hearts. By doing so, they shared the secrets of their success. By showing their failures along the way, and their approach to business, they inspired me to keep on my unique path, not trying to copy them or others, but to blaze my own unique trail.
— Stephanie Weaver

Animal Photography

with Rachael Hale McKenna
Brilliant class and well worth the $. My main genre is currently beauty portraits. I always used to photograph animals when photography was just a hobby. Now, I am expanding or at least incorporating my first love into my business - photographing animals... thanks Rachael and CL Gang - yet another full on educational course!
— Jane Earle

The Power of Body Language

with Vanessa Van Edwards
I've learned so much and Vanessa did a terrific job making it easy and fun. I loved learning that by paying more attention to body language, I'm becoming a better listener (and picking up on stuff I never caught before).

Money + Business for Creatives

with Ramit Sethi
Thank you so much for this incredible workshop. You answered one of my biggest questions, what value do I have to offer someone who is far more advanced than I am within the same industry. Implementing changes based on a coffee meeting and then closing the loop was an AHA moment. You just opened up so many possibilities that I didn't realize I had. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
— Tracy Martin

Newborn Photography

with Kelly Brown
I am amazed by how Kelly handles newborns and all the information I got from just watching an hour and a half on the first day, was enough for me to purchase this course as I knew that I wouldn't be able to watch the broadcasts fully. And I do not regret buying this course at all! :)
— Kristiina Paju

Build a Successful Creative Blog

with April Bowles

— Julia K

InDesign for Beginners

with Khara Plicanic
I knew absolutely nothing about InDesign and after viewing this course I feel pretty confident that I can create an ebook with this program. Khara is a great teacher, explained the material in a fun and engaging manner. After watching the whole class for free, I bought the whole pack so I can go back to it again.
