    I only wish I didn't purchase this class. The class was very flat and boring. It almost felt like a portion of an in depth class that were supposed to be free by RSVP but made into a paid class. I don't think I got what I expected :( Despite all the negative points, Kari does have a very sweet voice - almost put me to sleep listening to her.

    This is just outright absurd. Kari Chapin has never made or sold a handmade product. She teaches a class on how to fast start your handmade soap business by bringing someone in who has a handmade soap business? And then the class is composed of those two having a casual conversation about general practices while Kari catches up? No thanks.

    The only helpful information I got from this was one website address. I guess if it turns out that the the website increases my sales then the course was worth the price, but I'm really disappointed in the lack of in-depth information this course provided. If I had to do it all over again, I'd spend the money for his course on supplies for my products.
