This class was exactly what I needed when I needed it. I came in looking to rebrand my business and couldn’t wait to hear all of the amazing things that were going to be taught in the course. I came home the next day and got to work immediately. In fact, I called a designer on my way home and started the process to have someone design a logo and brand for me. I went and did a number of the suggestions by Katelyn. I just cannot speak more highly of this course and how much it is going to impact my business!
