The Ultimate Setting Up Shop Course

Hey, creative super star! Do you spend time at work worrying about not fulfilling your destiny? Do you dream about doing your own thing and being wildly successful? Do you feel paralyzed by taking the next steps from working from your kitchen table to getting a storefront (and a website)? Do you look at other businesses doing what you wish you could do if only you knew how to translate your talent into action?

It's time to stop letting the fear of not knowing what to do (or how to do it) keep you
from creating a solid foundation for the business you've been dreaming about.
