Hi I’m Holly Becker and I’ll be the instructor for this class. For nearly 13 years, I've worked professionally as an interior design author, founder and editor at decor8, interior stylist and consultant for brands. I create content and stories for my books and also decor8 and my social platforms, and I work for some of the largest brands in the world creating campaigns and content for their products, too. I'm currently writing my 5th book and just finished designing a product line for a large company based in Europe that will sell in 500 stores starting in January 2019. I've had lots of slumps and hard times as a small business owner, but I've always managed to dig myself out and rise above the madness, sadness and low periods and I can help you too. I'm a skilled and experienced business owner who loves to encourage, teach and inspire others and I've love to be your teacher - I hope you'll join me for this special, one-time-only, online class.

Week One

Reassess. Our lessons will teach you how to tap in to your energy, take care of yourself first, identify your strong points, and find the weak places in your business to stabilize and strengthen them. We will also cover how self care is not selfish and why. This will be a super positive series that will jump start you right away.

Week Two

Invigorate. This week, we will show you concrete ways in which you can organize your work flow, computer and office along with ways to get more positivity in your life, how to deal with down times and creative ruts, the importance of developing a strong support network (and how), and ways to develop courage and strength to rise up and power through. Self-confidence is key, so we'll help you with that before moving on to the next step...

Week Three

Strategize and Execute. How will you do the things you want to do? We'll show you how to put together a solid plan of action, how other business owners do it with interviews and case studies, how we do it and lots of tips and ideas for planning using Milanote, basic organization, and follow through. You will learn how to execute your plans fearlessly and with courage, how to market effectively on social media platforms, understanding SEO and how to use it to boost your business and get more eyes on your website/blog, various apps we love and our favorite things from the best newsletter apps to invoicing software, Instagram Stories apps we love, and more!
