Project Description

c0c6bfc1

1. For your project, I would like to invite you to write down in your own words, how the 10 benefits of this process can positively affect you. For example... "By learning how to make money while I sleep, I can spend more time with my family, rather than working so much..."

2. Also, write down a realistic list of possible products you can create. I want you to really think about this and make this a goal list.

3. Lastly, grab some reference images for your products that showcase your niche. Maybe these are art images you already have made, or maybe they are reference images from pinterest. The concept here is to get you narrowing your focus on YOUR niche style. This will set you on your way to creating your own products. 

I hope this course and this project gets you moving in the direction of your own product line becoming a reality. YOU CAN DO THIS!

Feel free to post comments or questions. I am here for you!
