Seems to be very comprehensive in its contents
This class is a compilation of all the advice I have read around the web over the past few years. But Monika presents it in such an easy to understand way, it's like having a conversation with her. And these are all techniques that she's used in her experience, so it's much more believable. I really enjoyed the class and think the positive inspiration is great for everyone whether they're just starting out or have been freelancing already for some time.
