  “Excellent course! Well organized, easy to follow, incredible amount of great information. As a small business owner at the beginning of my journey I was completely lost in the sea of marketing, however after following this course I no longer feel paralyzed. I feel that while I still don’t know exactly what I’m doing I have a clear direction where to go and a clear starting point. Which is exactly what I’ve been desperately searching for. I will also continue to follow the author on her blog. Thank you from the bottom of my less stressed heart!”

  “I found the information to be fairly basic (even as a complete novice), but there were several good/unique ideas and it was a well-compiled set of basic “fundamentals”.”

  “Was an eye opener on so many levels! I work with marketing and the content aspect of it, and this course helped me to see other angles of this kind of work. Thanks.”
