Set Up Shop Registration for the May 2014 Course is Now OPEN (with a juicy bonus)!


Hello Thrivers!

Jess here – I’m back from my Cambodian adventure… just in time to open up registration for a May run of Set Up Shop!

I wanted to run Set Up Shop one more time in the first half of 2014 for those of you who missed the February class, because this is the perfect time of year to finally get your online handmade shop up and running smoothly.

The holidays are far behind us, and Christmas is still a long way off. If you’ve got kids, they’re still in school, and if you’ve got a 9-5, there hopefully isn’t anything too massive going on at this time of year.


SO! If you’ve been holding out for the ‘right time’ to take Set Up Shop, I reckon this is it.



If you’re new round these ‘ere parts, and don’t know what Set Up Shop offers… head on over here to find out more.




Registration is open NOW, and closes on April 29th.


BONUS: One of my May students will win a Virtual Pass to the Artful Business Conference!



If you sign up to the May course, you’ll go in the random draw to win this brilliant 2-day virtual conference pass to the premier creative business conference in Australia.

Why a virtual pass? So no matter where you are in the world, you can participate! It’s available to everyone.

This pass is worth $197. Along with myself, speakers at the conference this year include: Karen Gunton, Elle Roberts, Denise Duffield-Thomas, Valerie Khoo, Julia Bickerstaff, Tess McCabe, Lisa Messenger, and Victoria Gibson.

It’s going to be 2 days of amazing practical information, inspiration, and ah-ha moments.


Register for the May course of Set Up Shop now for your chance to be part of it for FREE.
