"I fell in love with calligraphy during pharmacy school. At any given point in class, you would find me lettering while paying attention in class. After graduating from school, I left with 6 figures of loans, eep. Everyone told me to start monetizing my lettering skills and I figured this would be a great way to do what I loved while paying back the debt.
After 2 years of selling calligraphy items and services on Etsy, I felt like I was making pennies per item for the hard work I put in and my debt was becoming overwhelming. It turns out that I was severely underpricing and undervaluing my calligraphy skills. After completing Luxury Lettering 101, I realized the true earning potential of my calligraphy skills and the course has been absolutely essential towards my growth as a calligrapher.
I learned to value myself as an artist and connected with clients that respect it just as much! Not only did my earnings from lettering quintuple last month, but I am creating products that I LOVE making by targeting my ideal clients.
Since signing up for the course, I've worked with a handful of luxury lettering gigs and will be teaching my first class this month! LL101 pays for itself after booking one lettering gig and is getting me closer to paying off my loans early! I am ecstatic about where my business growth is heading, and I could not have done it without the support from Sylvia, Jodi, and the ladies of LL101!"
