"The programme was very informative and well thought out. I went into it with no real expectations as my painting was just a hobby, but it helped me to see how I could turn it into a business. There is lots of help available. I can´t recommend it highly enough for anyone starting out, or even just think of starting out".

Client Testimonial

"I love Lesley´s no nonsense, helpful and insightful approach along with extremely practical advice to launch a craft business inside of only a few days. You genuinely cannot go wrong using her method.

She´s been there and done it, unlike a lot of other people out there in the market.

So if you´re thinking about starting your own business, take her advice first before you make the mistakes that many of us do when starting out and avoid failing".

Charmaine, Artist/Potter, Germany

Client Testimonial

"As a complete newbie to this due to finishing a career in uniform, I knew absolutely nothing about starting up a business and what it entails. Although I am dipping my toes in the water I found this course full of information and a well thought out aproach. Well worth doing this course. It has certainly made me think outside the box and has boosted my confidence as I had precious little left.

Thank you Lesley"

Jacqueline, Jewellery Designer, Scotland
