How does the E-course work?

Each week we will send you a link to a video interview with a new guest
around a themed topic. The go-at-your-own pace of  the series allows you
to listen to the interviews when ever you have the time. We encourage
participants to discuss the videos each week with a prompted discussion
group online, where you can connect with other members of the series and
have a community discussion about the topics that come up for you
each week. Molly and I will be watching the group discussions
and joining in. In addition to the video interviews and discussions each
week, we will include downloadable bonus material in the form of a
series of worksheets. The worksheets are for you to keep and work
through at your own pace. By the end of the six weeks, you will have new
inspiration for expanding your creative business and a clear direction
for moving forward–on to BIG THINGS!
