Thank you so much for “Set up Shop”.

It was amazing and so very helpful in giving me clear step by step actions to follow to improve my business and shop.

I went from 2 sales in the first 9 months of re-opening my shop to having an additional 27 sales in a span of less then 2 months time. You are a wonderful teacher and mentor!
