Teaching courses was NOT in my game plan. Not remotely!

I was talking to a Facebook expert about developing my business and she said, “Anna, I think you should look at creating courses alongside what you do with your design.” 


This was NOT where my head was or where I was intending to go. This conversation felt like I was being hit by a truck.


But she knew her stuff, so I knew it'd be foolish to discard her advice. I had taught art classes in the past, but this simply wasn't in the game plan.


But even so, I started brainstorming and chatting with other designers and artists, to see if my ideas were relevant and helpful. 


After a while, I put together the start of the school, and designed the first course. I initally geared my courses towards other designers and artists, as they were the ones I felt I could relate the most to being a designer.

But as I was testing the courses out and getting feedback, the overall response was 'Anna, these courses aren't just for designers and artists, they are relevant for lots of people!'


So I have taken that on and am developing from there. Here is a little fun video sharing about the courses: 


You can see some short videos about them here and some of the testimonies.
