Are you ready for more options to grow your business and diversify your income streams?
Want an insider's view to the all of the products I sell and how I get them made? how I fulfill and ship them? from the past 10 years?
Then you are in the right place.
Years of time and money, that is what this extensive resource list and accompanying video will save you. I distilled what I've learned through a decade of research, trial and error when it comes to selling creative products online from originals to reproductions into this one condensed offering.
As a working artist, there are many mistakes I've made and thankfully haven't made that have allowed me to build a sustainable business, a Creative Career. As I get ready to enter my 11th year, a focus of Creative Thursday is on Mentoring. I want to support + inspire + empower you in creativity, in both life + business; and making it all a little easier. Work always needs to be done, lessons will be learned. There's no shortcut to success. But from a business owner who has made things harder than they need to be at times, for example; believing I had to figure it all out myself, letting my perceived lack of budget get in the way of learning from teachers who are further ahead then I am. I spent way more time "figuring" it all out than I needed to. You don't need to do the same.
This course contains video lessons plus an extensive resource list with individual links. And the best part! I will be updating it with additional videos in response to student questions as well sharing any new resource discoveries I make. You can consider this a permanent addition to your extensive resource collection, one that you can return to over and over again.
Support, encouragement, inspiration and achievable action are the intentions behind my teaching style. It's all about empowerment with more ease and less overwhelm, trusting your intuition and loving your creative life + work.

Testimonials ~ Here's what others have to say...
"I cannot recommend Marisa’s classes highly
enough! She is such a wonderful teacher. Super passionate and
enthusiastic about her class content and she is really talented at being
able to convey her information in a clear and interesting way. Marisa
puts so much time, effort and energy into her classes that it is a
wonderful experience. You can’t help but learn from her. Her passion for
the business of creativity is completely addictive that you will go
away completely fired up!"
I just want to let you know that from reading your book and attending your courses, your creative guru-ness is real! I so appreciate your voice and your willingness to take time away from your art and business to share what you've learned with the rest of us.
"Marisa, I've enjoyed your class so much!
The timing couldn't have been more perfect, as I was in the developing
stages of beginning my own creative business. There were many elements
of business marketing, branding, and profitability I would not have
considered, and probably wouldn't have even known I should consider, had
it not been for the course content. Based on many topics you covered, I have
successfully contracted with a local art shop to begin selling my
jewelry. And, I am very much looking forward to making money doing
something I truly enjoy!"
