About This Class

Turn your business dreams into a reality with seasoned surface pattern designer and creative entrepreneur Bonnie Christine. 

Eleven years ago Bonnie Christine had a dream of building a career as a surface pattern designer—and no idea how to do it. Step by step, day by day, she figured it out, and today runs a seven-figure business, is able to live the kind of life she wants, and gets to do work she’s truly passionate about every day. 

If that sounds like what you’re looking to do, too, you’re in luck. In this 50-minute class—recorded using Zoom and featuring participation from the Skillshare community—Bonnie shares the top five things that have helped her business thrive.  

You’ll learn how to assess where you are in your creative business—and how to get real about where you want to go. You’ll get into the nitty gritty of strategies like having an annual plan for your business, building an email list, adding multiple income streams, and marketing without feeling gross about it. And, hopefully, you’ll walk away feeling like your dreams are totally possible and knowing the next steps you need to take to get there. 

Plus, along the way, students got to ask Bonnie questions, giving you even deeper insight into her creative process, work-life balance, and more. 


While we couldn't respond to every question during the session, we'd love to hear from you—please use the class Discussion board to share your questions and feedback.
