Customer Reviews


Teri King is an absolutely wonderful teacher and really knows a lot about the arts and crafts business and how to teach her knowledge to beginners. I loved her class and teaching style. She explained all the lessons in a very clear and understandable way. Teri really cares about her students and is not afraid to share her personal information with us. She provided all her students with helpful detailed answers and was very suportive of all the different learning styles in the class. Teri is extremely heartfelt, understanding and a GREAT teacher. I can't wait to take another class from her!

Fantastic course! Fascinating material! Fabulous instructor!

It was a great course. I learned a lot and found the information really useful. I enjoyed the instructor's style of writing as well. Thank you for providing such a great course! This was my first online course of any kind and I have been pleasantly surprised. I have enjoyed my new experience online!

This course really taught me a lot. The instructor is great! I only wished the course were longer because I feel that she has so much knowledge to share and teach. I enjoyed the course thoroughly and learned very valuable information which I hope to put to use very soon. Thank you!

Thank you so much for this class. I had so many questions on how to go about making this happen for myself and you pretty much covered all my concerns. Now my only concern is the money I need to get some things started...something I will have to do on my own I'm afraid! Thank you again!

I enjoyed this course and learned quite a bit. Although I've done a substantial amount of research on starting my own business, the course helped me put all of the pieces together. I liked the fact that it was specific to arts and crafts, rather than just starting a business. Well done.
