  • <p>as a participant in the course, and now a week later, going back thru watching the videos, following along with the book, doing the homework again, i have to say i am still 1000% overjoyed that i put my business launch on hold to attend Robyn&#39;s course and Attend to my Life and my Relationship and put them first for the first time in my adult life.</p> <p>i went into this with an open mind, believing whatever i got out of it would be greater than what i came into it with and by the end of the first day i felt like i had won the lottery! i was terrified to sit down and figure out our net worth, believing we were Billions of dollars in the red. but lo and behold, when i just put the battle ax down and did the work it turned out our assets had us sittin&#39; pretty. Imagine my shock! my entire outlook changed, my beliefs were able to shift and i&#39;ve been able to make grand changes in the way i deal with money in even the smallest of ways since then.</p> <p>i found that piece to be so phenomenally empowering habits i thought i&#39;d never break are totally conscious decisions now, before i reach in my wallet i ACTUALLY THINK do i WANT to spend this on that right now? or would i rather SAVE it for later. I don&#39;t even have to have a goal in mind. the image of our assest growing is a serious turn on!</p> <p>Robyn&#39;s light hearted approach really brought my guard down, she gave me facts and knowledge first, when i was handed that 150 page book, i said to myself, &quot;self i said, knowledge, cool.&quot; then she walked on stage with her sense and humor and i said, &quot;AND Robyn&#39;s funny- BONUS! i&#39;m definitely learning something, let&#39;s go!&quot; and learn i did.</p> <p>I&#39;m thrilled at the follow up and i&#39;d say to anyone considering if they should invest in this course, it&#39;s unorthodox in the least, and if you&#39;re open and willing to do the work, it can, as i am living witness, be absolutely transformative. personally and triangularly- that being between you, your hunny &amp; your money. take it if you dare to break free of whatever bonds are holding you from living with your love in your highest purpose, calling, and love light!</p> <p>If i could gift one thing on this earth this moment to everyone i love it would be taking this course with Robyn.</p> <p>(holdin the space, prayin n holdin the space...) </p>
  • <p>I absolutely LOVE Robyn Crane. What a great teacher. My man agreed to go through the video course and complete the workbook with me based on a clip he saw one clip of the course. We&#39;ve gone through half the manual workbook and have been able to communicate better outside of the work, already. I am feeling better about talking with my spouse about money than ever, and we&#39;re both learning more about each other&#39;s ideas about money and our beliefs. Wow. That&#39;s an eye opening experience, I thought I knew what he thought about money and goals but I was surprised a lot at the answers he wrote in the workbook. Sharing with eachother is key-- I&#39;m so pleased with the results and we&#39;re not even half way done! That you Robyn and thank you Creative Live!</p>
  • <p>Robyn presents important questions to ask yourself about money and very important ideas to consider. She is obviously experienced and knows her subject well, but unfortunately, in Day One, she often drowns this information in a sea of silliness that I do not appreciate. I am hoping that Day Two will improve. In this context, I like a style that is pleasant, but more serious and to the point. Some audience participation is good, but it needs to be limited - use it sparingly. In the last several Creativelive courses I have watched, there has been too much attention to an audience member&#39;s personal journey - which can quickly seem slow, boring and overly sentimental, just like watching a reality show. The &quot;book&quot; that came with the purchased course contains very important points, but the text merely skimmed the surface of information that could have been developed in more professional detail for best effect. If Robyn is going to officially publish this material, she could use a good editor. What I ask of Creativelive presenters is this: just do a thorough and effective presentation of the subject at hand (see John Greengo&#39;s Fundamentals of Digital Photography as an example) and forget the theatrics. I regret my purchase when the presentation is filled with an abundance of non-essential fluff. However, admittedly, I am just one viewer and you may have a majority of viewers who appreciate this sort of delivery.</p>
