Do you dream about firing your boss and working for yourself?
Do you want to generate part-time or full-time income on your own time, and own terms?
Do you want to spend your time making art, writing and creating?
Since I started my microbusiness in 2010, I’ve worked from many different coffee shops, libraries, hotel lobbies, and other locations. I’ve written blog posts in New Orleans, launched a course from Sarasota, did a speaking gig in Austin at SXSW, created audio recordings in Boston, started a speaking tour and wrote a book that was published by Penguin Random House in December 2017.
I didn’t start my own business to travel, but love having the flexibility to work from anywhere. Not only do I get to do work I love, but I don’t have to interrupt my life to do it. While earning money is a necessary currency in growing a sustainable business, you can’t discount other currency like:
There is also the benefit of structuring your business the way you like to work. I don’t miss Monday morning meetings, weekly reports or 9 hour days.
As a first-time blogger / indie writer struggling to find her place in the great cyberworld, this course was such a brilliant find!
I love how you talked me through the path you took with your business – it helps me map out mine. And I love the totally practical way you write about what works, what matters, and what doesn’t – it helps me avoid some of the pitfalls and shows me where I’m right on track with my own approach. Even where there’s no direct correlation between your business and my potential business I benefit from the general context that applies whatever the actual ‘business’ is.
Also, I want to tell you that I appreciate your generosity: I’ve looked at other small-business courses out there and most of them I simply couldn’t afford at this stage of my business. So, thank you so much for putting this out there at a price I can afford, with a structure that makes sense to me and with content I can relate to, that provides real-life support and information that I would have struggled for frustrating days or weeks to find.” – Gitta

You might be thinking that this course is under-priced at $24.99 and it is. Here’s why …
- I believe that doing work you love should be accessible to anyone who is interested. I hope this affordable pricing helps more of you access work you love in an easy to understand, enjoyable, powerful way.
“The biggest thing I can say about your course so far – it made it seem real for someone like me to create something that would work. It has sent me on a course of micro-actions!” – Rochelle
“I wanted to express my gratitude to you for sharing all of your great knowledge and insight. I appreciate that you made it an accessible and affordable price, so anyone can benefit from your helpful resources. Not only the price, but the way you presented the information was so accessible and welcoming. It felt as if you genuinely want to help people and share your knowledge.” – Kaitlyn
I wanted to tell you how happy I am with your microcourse. I especially like the money segment- because it wasn’t what I expected. I was hesitant to purchase the course because I’ve had experience with some “pushy” sites before. I so appreciate finding out that way is not the only way and that it is okay to just be myself in how I do whatever I do. It feels so much more authentic! – Caryn
Some times when I read the advice of other internet entrepreneurs, I automatically dismiss it as something I don’t think I can do because it just seems sleezy and disingenuous, but this course gave me permission to network and do business in ways that make sense to me. I don’t feel like I have to change who I am and that’s really encouraging. Before this course I thought maybe I’m just not cut out for business, but I realize I’m struggling because I’m not doing something that truly matters to me. I’m not done with this course yet (action steps are next), but I already feel significant shift in how I feel about being an entrepreneur thanks to you. – Joelle
