Despite the temptation of burn out, I knew wanted to be a professional artist, and I wanted to do whatever it took to make that happen. I took a leap of faith and signed up for Shanna's first Blueprint retreat back in 2014- and I'm so glad I did! Shanna taught me how to look deep into my business and figure out how to make it sustainable and profitable for the long haul. It was never in my wildest dreams I'd be able to make this into a long term career- but now, 6.5 years in and a baby on the way, I'm more confident than ever that we can make this thing last. 

Shanna taught me the fundamentals:
-How to price for profit- all the time
-How to be a good steward of my finances (intentionally planning- instead of wondering where it all went)
-How to not emotionally price and stand up for the value of my work
-How to create systems and routines so it wasn't so chaotic all the time
How to make a business plan
-How to make and stick to goals in all areas of my life
-How to think long term about my business and plan ahead for slow seasons
And so much more...
