"I have just completed the Taking your Hobby to market course and I'm really excited about all the information I now have to make a success of my ideas! I found the article on how to extend your market day reach especially useful- will be printing that off and pinning it up in the studio…thanks Justine – I am inspired."

"After working with market stall owners for close to a decade through my market event business, Perth Upmarket, I heard the same questions again and again… I saw that one thing stopping creatives succeed was that they did not have the tools, resources and know how to get them to where they needed to be.
I really wanted to help market stall owners create successful thriving businesses, not just at markets, but also in between. I wanted to provide creatives with the tools and support to grow so they can create abundance for themselves, their families and their communities.
I've taken all the information and resources I've created for my own creative business along with my event business and created the easy 10 module online course so that I can help more people turn their passion into profit.”
