Would you like to expand your business, build your own WordPress website or dream up branding that feels authentic and beautiful to you?
Then I hope my courses can help you on that journey!
I believe that you can be your own expert and that we can create big magic on a shoe string. While I love my work as a web designer and tech fairy, I also want to empower people to build things themselves if that is what is best for them. If you find that you do need more support after taking my courses, I will take the price you paid for your course off my hourly support retainers or web design packages.
It feels important to me to make this work as accessible as possible, which is why I am offering sliding scale prices and free monthly webinars that you can join as a student to ask questions, deepen your understanding and meet others who are going through a similar experience. The benefit of this is that I can offer my courses at more affordable self-study rates rates while you also get direct access to me and have extra accountability to actually implement what you are learning.
All my courses are evergreen, which means that you can sign up for them any time and complete them in a timeframe that works for you.

I really appreciate how down-to-earth, real and simple your approach is, it feels like a breath of fresh air -actually, like a deep, deep exhale, taking so much of the pressure of this ‘online thing’ off..I have been through most of the DIY Business Magic course, and it’s felt so nourishing and supportive, which is very different to past experiences I’ve had with business courses. I wish yours was the first course I’d taken, it would have saved me a lot of obsessing over doing things a certain way…!Stella
The easiest way to take my DIY courses is to become a Patreon here – you can make a monthly pledge of 11$ or more and will receive access to the program as well as the DIY WordPress and design courses plus monthly ritual kits and regular free webinars to deepen your understanding and give you a chance to ask questions.
My prices are intentionally low to keep them accessible to as many people as possible while also honouring the time and energy I put into them. You can cancel or lower your pledge any time – just stay a Patreon for as you can afford to or as long as you feel you are receiving benefits from my work, I trust you.
I am not promising that my courses can teach you to make six figures in three month or that you will magically gain 10.000 instagram followers, but I can promise you that I am passing on everything I have learned from running two successful businesses and taking many online programs and trainings on these subjects.
