Here's what students are saying:

I LOVE all the info you have shared! I love thinking about how to package. Day 3 really made me think about how to describe that item, once it was done I thought it was fun. This has really motivated me to get my butt in gear!
- Lynne

I just wanted to say thank you so much, I've really enjoyed your course and have gained a lot from it. I found your videos and directions easy to follow and not at all long winded as I have experienced with other webinars. You are doing a fab job. Thank you again for your time and inspiration.
- Faye

You're encouragement to focus on benefits has been the push I needed. I focused so much on stats and features. I am rethinking and rewriting everything to add benefits and paint a better picture.
- Marcie

MVP day really made me rethink what I want to offer in my store.
- Dianne

The first day. It was hard, but really thinking about my customers in terms of problems and solutions is going to help my marketing out quite a bit. After that, the last day was great. I was able to make an action plan based off that days video to actually make things happen.
- Cera

I liked them all however the day about packaging and focusing on the benefits I feel I got the most as far as improving what I’m doing and they led to a MVP.
- Andrea

I loved them all but my favourite was the marketing session.
- Ria

I think my favorite was the packaging lesson. I got so much out of that and my head was spinning with ideas!! I can't wait to put them in action!
- Terry

My favorite day was Day 3. I learned the language I lacked to describe the items on my website. The difference between features and benefits. How to personalize it to your ideal customer.

What a wonderful teacher. This 30 minute class really taught me how to go about figuring out my pricing. 95% of my product is made on my farm by me and I had a hard time figuring out how to price. Thank you dear lady for your willingness to help this little farmHER and others with the knowledge on how to get our product out there and make some extra money. Bless you.
- Tuesday

Thank You for this. It really encouraged me to follow through on my goal of selling my products without doubting, because others sell similar products at a lesser price. I feel much better because, initially I didn't feel that I would get the appropriate price based on the amount of labor that I put into my products. But this has helped me focus my vision. The entire 5 day challenge has enlightened me and certainly decreased much of the doubt that was controlling me.
- Joyse

Everyday was important and everyday was a favorite. I had a basic concept of these steps but not how to implement them. I loved that I learned on Day 1 to think about my customer as having a problem I could solve. It made me look differently at what I like to make and where it would fit into who I thought my customer was and then I realized who I thought my customer was is changing. Day 2 pointed out my need to focus on product. I’ve doubted my ability to move from crafts to business. You made me realize that I could start with just one item. I didn’t need a huge inventory and to have everything in place to actually start. By Day 3, my mind was whirling. Day 4 was practical and let my brain settle a bit. I’ve always thought my own website was impossible without help as I am definitely tech challenged. This does seem doable now. Day 5 was very informative. I’ve always heard that you need to use social media to promote your business. How? Is it really as simple as a blog? Now I’m inspired to do it. I can’t thank you enough for offering this course. Thank you for encouraging myself and so many others. I want to send you a note again later showing you what you’ve created in me.
- Valerie

I’ve always been comfortable with writing and technology, but I really needed to figure out how to focus my energies. I definitely have crafting ADHD because I need to learn everything. So it was really helpful to be forced to majorly narrow my focus.
- Elaina

Thank you Amika Ryan, another gem. I so needed to hear "use what you already have". That took off pressure and made my first product in the 'range ' of items so much easier to focus on . I have the price sorted. Already have 3 people wanting to buy it! I would never have done this with out your encouragement.
- Freya

I just want to say this video helped me so much just because I needed someone to say all the things I was thinking and you did! Thanks for being awesome and genuine I appreciate you so much Amika!!! Thank you!
