My name is joy jenkins, my businesses, renaissance heart's design studio. You can find me at renaissance heart stock, home, we make handwoven scarves and hand me the jewelry. The goal for business is to expand. We wantto go into shawls, baby blankets, even bags, and more than that, we want to be able to support our other creative outlets. One of our biggest challenge is at the moment right now is customers and finding out how to market ourselves and get our message out to the people who would enjoy and love to our stuff. One of the things we have done in our business that we're really proud of is we've never stopped producing. We keep making and designing the things that we love to, and we hope that other people will love it as well. One thing I am hoping to learn in this boot camp is what is the next step? What is an except to reaching people? What it's, the next step to making this business to succeed?

Love the shorter and longer format to this class. It keeps me interested and I don't have to schedule a whole day at once, during the free play. Well worth the money if you pay for the class too. Megan is amazing! She really knows business, marketing and has strategies which apply to all kinds of businesses. The work book is 150 pages long and breaks everything down into small bits and teaches you to really think about all aspects of your business. Where you were, are now and best of all where you want to be and how to get there. Highly recommend any of her classes. Thank you so much Megan and Creative Live for bringing us such wonderful content!
This course was totally awesome!!! I cannot express enough how fantastic Megan Auman is, what a great teacher she is, and am so thankful she offered it for FREE!!! Wow!!! It was exactly where I was at, stuck and frustrated. Exactly what I needed to begin to get my business off the ground. I am currently implementing all I have learned from her. Rebranding my self, rebuilding my website, new product shots, model shots, list building, etc., etc. I am still connected with the Facebook group, and that is awesome we have that connection to continue helping each other out and using each other as a sounding board. I plan on purchasing the course as soon as I can. I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this course to anyone who is struggling to get their business off the ground and going!!!
Thank you Megan for this opportunity.
I really liked the first classes. You indicated interesting directions to think about. Even though life verifies the rest it is still worth to become smarter. Great Work! Best regards from Poland. Ewa
