I am very proud to be a part of one fantastic, generous group of women! It all started last year when I took an online course by Kelly Rae Roberts, Flying Lessons:
This awesome class included a private Facebook group for all of us taking the class to converse - all 350 of us! Well, it's been a year and the class is long done, but a day doesn't go by that I don't chat with my new online friends. I've even met with some of them. We are all from different states, even different countries! We support each other in our creative endeavors, but also confide our secrets, hopes, dreams, hurts and joys. I can honestly say that my life has changed for the better because of this amazing group of women.
So, in order to celebrate our sisterhood, we decided to take up a collection to sponsor someone else to take Flying Lessons ecourse. Interesting even more, Kelly Rae Roberts has decided that this is the LAST time she will offer this online course. So she told us that she would match how ever many registrations we donate. Well, at last count, we came up with enough money to sponsor EIGHT students, which means that with Kelly Rae matching that, SIXTEEN lucky people will be able to take this awesome class! Isn't that amazing!! Like I said, I'm so proud to be a part of this.
If you are interested in taking Flying Lessons and maybe even winning the opportunity to get your registration paid for by US, the 2011 Fly Tribe, then checkout our Fly Tribe blog.
My personal journey this past year, thanks in large part to Flying Lessons, is the revamping of my Live, Laugh, Love Retreats business. My retreat business allows me the opportunity not only to share my joy of creativity, but also to help promote other incredibly talented artists on their journey. There's nothing more gratifying than a business that gives.
I would like to encourage you to checkout my other sisters' blogs in this hop. We each have our own amazing, creative journey that we are on, and I hope you appreciate our growth. We sure do!
