About This Course
As you know, this is Building Your Business: 7 Days to Get Your Business Off The Ground. For short, BYB101 (as there will be a paid 102 version coming soon), but also the entire series (both 101 and 102) is #buildbizin7.
I've gone through many free e-courses and e-mail courses in the past and was never satisfied with the depth of the content. Therefore, I made it my goal to have my own course that is much more comprehensive and actually helpful for bloggers, small businesses, shops, brands, and entrepreneurs. I've spent many hours and days curating content, creating videos, lessons, and designing worksheets to have two equally awesome BYB courses (the 101 and 102) on Skill Space.
The course is a combination of texts, videos, graphics, examples, and work sheets. I do my best to make it fun and different. BYB 101 will be available year-round for free. BYB102 will be available at select times throughout the year and will have a cost to it. If you let me know your email address, I will let you know when BYB102 is live:
About Your Instructor
Hello! I just wanted to start out introducing myself. In case you don't know me already, my name is Amy Smith.
I founded Skill Space with my husband, Duncan. Prior to this I was a general lifestyle blogger with The Charming which I started around 2011. The Charming provided me with a lot of great opportunities, including networking, conferences, events, working with small and large businesses and brands, and launching my own web and graphic design business called The Charming Studio. Prior to this, though, I had been a photographer since roughly 2008. At this time, I do not take on any photography or design clients for personal (and sanity!) reasons. I'm trying to devote my time and energy to Skill Space (and helping Duncan launch his shop) but I also have a little girl and work part-time as an oncology nurse at a local hospital.
With all that said, I've grown to have such a passion over the many years for the topic of business and blogging -- especially digital and physical marketing, as I've worked with several clients both designing and managing their brand and marketing needs. With Skill Space, Duncan and I really truly wanted to create an interactive website to help with the many needs of bloggers, brands, and businesses of all kinds!
on a fun note:
I was born and raised in the North Atlanta suburbs in Georgia. (Duncan was born and raised in Africa, immigrating here in 2002).
Duncan and I have been married for four years now with a daughter named Katherine (born in December 2014). We love to spend time outdoors and traveling, but can also be quite of a bit of homebodies enjoying TV show binges, movies, and reading. If I weren't doing this (or being a nurse), I'd be a marine biologist or a National Geographic photographer! Duncan would want to do some time of consulting or coaching.
