“I launched my workshop in 4 days and enrolled 130 new students even though my niche is TINY (needlepointing). I am over-the-moon excited!!”
Results are not guaranteed. Please see earnings disclaimer for more detail.
I had a brick-and-mortar needlework store for 14 ½ years. Then, in January of 2017, my husband suffered a stroke. After a couple of months of him not being 100% himself, I decided life was too short to keep running the store.
I was there six days a week. Retail is very demanding. And I needed to close the doors to be more available for my husband.
I wasn’t ready to retire completely, though, so I started to wonder if I could use my background in education (I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Early Childhood Education) to teach everything I had learned during 25+ years in the needlework industry online.
Since then, I’ve learned a lot from Amy. With her trainings, I built an email list, launched my course, Need Point Made Easy, and started a membership site too!
Recently, I decided I needed to launch a workshop as well so that my subscribers, mostly females who enjoy needlework as a hobby, who weren’t ready to invest in my other programs had an intro-level place to start learning from me.
Well, I followed exactly what Amy taught in her Workshop Course, and FOUR days later, over Thanksgiving weekend, I enrolled 130 new students in my workshop before I even created it!!
Since it was the holiday season, I decided to “theme” my marketing around Winter Wonderland. Now I can use that workshop again and again. And I plan to launch new workshops each season, too!
This will serve as the entry point to the rest of my business. Meaning, by launching & recording this workshop, I gave my subscribers a low-cost opportunity to start learning from me. After they take the workshop, I can introduce them to my membership program (The Stitcher’s Club) and another course I’m launching in 2020!
This one little workshop just might have a HUGE impact on the amount of revenue I’m able to generate for my entire business because it will help sell everything else!
I honestly can’t imagine what my life would look like if I hadn’t found Amy. I know for sure that I wouldn’t be nearly as far in my journey as an online entrepreneur.
But with Amy… She breaks everything down step-by-step. I’m 56 years old, so the tech doesn’t come naturally to me, but Amy makes it simple to follow along.
Now I have a business that gives me the freedom to take care of my family, my husband’s health has improved, and I just couldn’t be more grateful.

Pre-DCA, the School of Style had in-person classes in NYC and LA. I was traveling constantly and my overhead was ridiculous. Now I sell digital courses, my clients have better results and I’ve been able to sustain a 7-figure business. No overhead. No travel. I’m living my dream.
I joined Digital Course Academy®️, and that next year, I generated 6-figures! The year after that, we grossed $250k!
I know I can grow my freelance business, but there is only so much work I can take on. As a course creator I feel I am in control of my income growth, and I see that it’s actually possible to make this a million-dollar business!

If committing to creating and launching a course feels equivalent to climbing Kilimanjaro, listen up…
Every journey starts with one step. If the questions “who am I to create a course?” or “where do I even start?” are coming up for you, know that they came up for every single successful course creator you see on this page.
Whether you’ve never owned a business before, you have no idea what your course would be about, or you’re totally allergic to tech — we ALL start somewhere. What matters most is your willingness to put one foot in front of the other.
Each of these course creators started with one thing: THE COURAGE TO TRY
