Testimonials from our Class:
Mati’s DA in Creative Biz class is amazing! It was just what I needed to push me to stretch my wings in my art practice. Mati’s style is so encouraging and helps create a supportive environment where we can be ourselves and feel brave enough to take leaps towards our dreams. Because of her class I’ve started my own workshops, e-course and also have more ideas in the works. Highly recommended!! — Nancy Benton http://www.nancybenton.net/
Mati, it is with a heart filled with gratitude that I say…”thank you!” Thank you for being true to yourself so that in turn it empowers others to be true to themselves. You truly lead by example!! It has been an incredible gift to receive so many hard earned pieces of wisdom from you. I have always felt that I could honor where I am at in my creative journey in this class and did not feel any shame about not doing “it” (whatever “it” is) the “correct” way. So much freedom has been modeled, imparted and given…thank you. You are a precious gift to this world and to those of us who call ourselves “creatives.” May your gift of presence continue to shine brightly and bless others as you journey. —Laura Wolfe, http://www.laurajwolfe.com/
There was SO much goodness its hard to sum up into a few sentences but my favorite parts were getting to talk to you and meet other artists from different places. This course helped me to be brave. I moved to a bigger place so I could finally have a studio space, had my first art show, and got a new boyfriend in the process! I’m finally holding myself accountable for my own success. This course was just the right mix of push + support. I can’t wait to continue the journey and am forever grateful for all you do. —Nikki Cade http://www.nikkicadestudio.com
Mati’s “Daring Adventures in Creative Biz” class helped me focus on reaching my goals through inspiring videos by Mati and guest speakers, goal-setting techniques and accountability. The class size was small enough to allow for specific feedback from classmates and Mati. The uplifting and positive atmosphere of the course, along with the solid content has helped me move in the right direction with my business. It was like having an art business life coach! I’ll be continuing on with the next course. Thanks so much Mati for your inspiration and guidance. –Pam Wingard, Barefoot Studios
Daring Adventures in Creative Biz was such a great experience not only did I get so much insight into what I need to do to pursue my passion I also met a great group of like minded friends. We went through the journey together and celebrated each others accomplishments. Mati is a great mentor and has such a great spirit! She truly cares about each persons goals. I definitely feel like she touches on many questions I had about starting my creative biz.— Amy Walker, Amy Walker Art
