My name is rachelle, and my business is red. Scorpio. Handmade. You can find me at the red scorpio. Dot com I make all kinds of jewelry, but I specialize in custom photo jory like this bracelet and this necklace. The goal for my business is to be sustainable. Um, right now I have two big seasons and I'd rather have a sustainable business at last all year. Um, and the biggest challenge reaching that goal is finding the right people. My my jewelry isn't trendy, per se, so it's a little harder to read out my ideal customer. Um, the one thing that I've done for my business that makes me proud is that I've spent everything for my business. I learned from the bottom up how to make the jury how to do the website, how to do the shop. So that was pretty awesome, and I'm hoping to learn from this boot camp where to find my ideal client. I need teo focus on rooting them out and selling to them, marketing to them and being sustainable.

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!!!
