And the Set Up Shop Winners Are…

I was totally blown away with the response to the Set Up Shop giveaway – truly.

SO many of you shared your stories – stories of hope, dreams, and determination. I knew there was a place for this course in the world, but I didn’t realise just how many of you feel that you just need that guidance and direction to take your shop and business to the next level. I’m so excited about sharing that with you throughout April!!

It was really hard to pick a winnerΒ – I read and responded to each and every one of you, and goodness, you really opened up and shared your lives and wishes with us all. That takes courage.Β Thank you.

So, without further ado…

The Silver winner was the random draw, and the winner of the Silver Membership is:

Cat of Tiny Lion Jewellery

After reading over all your comments numerous times, a few stood out to me – but one really captured me. And so I chose…

The winner of the Gold Membership is:

Sally Steele!

Sally, I trust you to take what I teach you and run with it – run with the wind!!

To everyone else who entered – thank you, thank you, thank you. I hope you’ll join us in the course – I’d love to see each and every one of you achieve your goals and dreams!

Registration opens Monday the 25th, at 7am AEST – prices will be released then (but just so you know, the Silver Membership will be well under $100 – my aim is to make this course affordable for everyone).

I’ll be sending out an email prior to that with a link to the registration page… so if you want to be the first to register (especially if you want one of the limited Gold or Platinum places) make sure you’re on the email list. Also – those who register within the first 24 hours will receive a bonus – a FREE copy of my ebook – How to Run a Rockin’ Mailing List. Just my way of saying thanks for hopping on board!

If you have any questions about the course, please leave them on the comments, or just shoot me a quick email πŸ™‚

Congratulations to the winners, I’ll be in touch very soon!
