Here I was about to turn 40…

With some brand-new business dreams…

And faced with a voice in my head questioning if anyone would care about what I have to share?

Turns out they did! (In the absolute best way!)

My journey actually started 10 years prior, when I was designing custom stationery as a business and creating photo projects about our family as a hobby.

I would blog about my photo projects, and my stationery clients would see my posts and ask if I could do photo books for them too.

And that’s how I started helping busy families transform their memories into timeless, beautiful pieces.

Then life happened…


Moving my military family…


And somehow all of my creative endeavors fell behind me. (Even though my creative spark still lived on inside.)

Fast-forward to the summer of 2020…

I’m sitting in a Chick-Fil-A parking lot (#momlife!) listening to the Digital Course Academy launch episode on Amy's podcast in my car, hearing the testimonials, thinking to myself… “Catherine, you can do this!!”

I knew this was my time… so I signed up and I started DCA in spring 2021.

I approached DCA with this mindset… “I’m going to do EXACTLY what Amy says to do!”… and I got to work!

Amy made it easy. She is so precise in walking you through step-by-step what exactly you need to do, and in what order. I always knew my exact next move.

I had a small list of 500, but I literally NEVER emailed them. I started DCA and six months later I had 850 subscribers. I kept pushing list building and had 1,003 people on my list when I opened my cart!

The Q&As were also a crucial part of the DCA experience for me.

It was much-needed quality time with Amy and other course creators that eased my nerves about hosting the live webinars and kept me on pace to achieve my target launch date.

To be honest, I was still a little worried about not having any testimonials for my course, or even that I was charging too high of an amount for my course prior to my launch…

But even with those doubts I made $10,000!

Being a military wife and a mom, I’ve had to put my career on hold all these years.

But the satisfaction of getting back to work and being able to contribute to the household expenses – and even treating my family to a vacation – is the most amazing feeling I’ve felt in a long time.

I can work from home, earn a great living, and still be there for my husband and kids!

Thanks to DCA, I finally have a career I am excited about again – and I’m doing it my way!
