Bonnie Christine [00:00:00]:
This is my favorite time of the year. Can I tell you why? It's because I get to introduce so many people to the breathtaking world of surface pattern design, and I think it's so fun for me because I get to experience them going through the same exact thing that I did when I first discovered it. There's this moment, and once you realize what it is and what the opportunity is, your eyes light up, your heart's set on fire, and your mind goes wild with possibility. I'm Bonnie Christine, and this is where all things creativity, design, business, and marketing unite. I'm a mama living in a tiny town tucked right inside the Smoky Mountains running a multi seven figure business, doing the most creative and impactful work of my life. When I first set out to become an entrepreneur, I was struggling to make ends meet and wrestling with how to accomplish my biggest dream of becoming a fabric designer. Fast forward to today, I'm not only licensing my artwork all over the world, but also teaching others how to design their creative life and experience the same success. I'm here to help You spend your life doing something that lights you up.

Bonnie Christine [00:01:24]:
I'll help you build a creative business that also creates an impact, changes people's lives, gives you all of the freedom you want, and is wildly profitable. Old. Welcome to the Professional Creative Podcast. Stu moment that I realized what this was and what it could make true for me. The year was 2009. I was working in my mom's fabric store, and I had been meeting with reps to decide what kind of fabric we wanted to carry in the store. And one day I was walking down an aisle with bolts of fabric on both sides of me, and I looked that one, and I held it in my hand. And I thought, oh Amy goodness.

Bonnie Christine [00:02:08]:
This is someone's Kajabi. And everything for me just fell into place. Everything that I loved in life, creativity and freedom time freedom and location freedom and financial freedom and also using my hands and my mind to create beautiful things. It was everything I had ever wanted all wrapped up into 1 amazing career opportunity. Now. For me, the problem was I didn't know how to get started. Now I'll tell you about what's coming up and then we'll come back to this story. So the Searchie design immersion experience is just around the corner, and to celebrate, I'm hosting a free 7 day workshop called The Art of Business 7 Secrets to Success in Surface Design.

Bonnie Christine [00:03:00]:
So if I go back to my story, My problem was I didn't know how to get started, and I got so overwhelmed because I wasn't sure what steps to take, what order the steps should go in or what they even were that I got stuck in an action for a long time. I wasted 6 months in complete overwhelm until I started just chipping away to figure it out. Now Stu forward over a decade, not only did I figure it out, but I've also seen tens of thousands of students and their journeys as well. So what this has done is given me this really unique behind the scenes look at what the typical journey looks like. What are all the steps and what's the best order of steps to go in if you wanna pursue a career in surface design. And my heart still sits with the version of me who just didn't know what they all looked like so much that I have built it into this entire program that I'm gonna teach in this free 7 day workshop. So it's where I map out the entire process for you. So lesson number 1 is all about the opportunity.

Bonnie Christine [00:04:17]:
What is the opportunity of surface design? What is surface design and what can it make possible for you in your life. Now lesson number 2 is the very, like, first steps you can take in order to get started. So let's just wipe away the overwhelm and really drill into what the very beginning stages would even look like, what would it look like to start taking action towards this. Then lesson 3 is where I kind of zoom way out, and I show you every step along the way, literally from absolute beginner to thriving professional career. You'll get the entire map. It's truly it's tremendous. It is a workbook and a map that has everything outlined on it for you so you don't have to wonder anymore. You can see the plan right in front of you and make your own version of it to carry you forward through the next year.

Bonnie Christine [00:05:12]:
Now lesson number 4 is how to create income from your art. So once you understand how you're going to do it, let's talk about how you're gonna make money doing it. So we talk about multiple streams of revenue and what it looks like to start creating income from your art. Now what you need to know about the workshop is that all of the lessons, get delivered right to your inbox. So once they're delivered, you can watch them anytime you want. But included in the workshop our several live q and a sessions for me where I also do a little bit of training.

And this year it's entirely new. And they can't believe it because of just how much information we give away, and the entire experience is just really fun. It's high quality.

Bonnie Christine [00:07:04]:
It's educational, and it is going to give you clarity. So my number one goal with this workshop is that if you are curious about surface design at all, this workshop will help you decide with absolute certainty. Like, you will know with absolute certainty at the end of this workshop if it's something that you wanna pursue or not, and some of you won't want to. You'll you'll say that was exactly what I wanted to know. Thanks so much. This is not what I want. And some of you will say, oh my goodness. The path has been laid out for me.

Bonnie Christine [00:07:39]:
This is my life's biggest dream. Let's go. So come if you're curious at all and learn. And also if you know of anybody who might be curious, have them come join you in this workshop.
