Hi, my name is lisa jones. I'm known as a tailor gypsy I d'oh leather goods, personal leather goods, this bag back pockets also do belt and cuff and jewelry. Um, in the goal for my business is tio. Have it be an internationally known brand, both in recognition and in sales. My biggest challenge is to reaching that goal is always balances balances between time and energy balances between resource is and growth. So those were those were the two biggest places that I'm struggling. One thing I'm really proud of in my company is that I listen to my customers really well. I supply them with the products that they want and ask for. This is my fourth year of growing just as a small business, and, uh, there is growth every year, so I'm hoping to learn from this boot camp, uh, solid ways and tools to build a sustainable, long lasting business.

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
