For the last two years, I've hosted a ONE DAY ONLY sale for The Whole Shabang for a seriously discounted price. For both of those one day only sales, you guys went berserk scooping it up. I love a good, well received sale. So much that I've decided to make it a full-on, possibility-fueled tradition.
So, today, friends, is THE DAY.
Even better news? The Whole Shabang has been completely updated and redesigned with the latest and greatest. I am so proud of this book. So proud.
: How to build a devoted following and online presence?
: How ultra-successful artists sell, price & package their work?
: How to create a visually stunning website + blog, without spending a lot of $$?
: How to effectively organize your time & energy, and deal with all the outrageous fears that pop up, when you “go public” with your heart’s work?
: How to get published, licensed, and accepted to art shows?
: How to diversify + expand your income with possibility-drenched revenue streams?
: How to stay engaged with your heart while managing the business side of creating a business?
You aren't alone. It took me half a decade of wondering & wandering (and very hard work) to find answers that worked for me. And now, I’ve bundled up my very-best resources & how-tos … for YOU.
Flying Lessons: The Whole Shabang is a beautifully designed, highly interactive + functional e-book.
Did I mention it's 223 pages? Yes, yes it is. It's parts one, two, and three combined, which means it's packed with information, personal stories of what’s worked for me (and what hasn’t worked - lots of wisdom in those hard earned lessons), links, informative interviews with some of the most knowledgeable people I know, and resources that will save you boatloads of time and money in hours spent researching. And that's just the super short, skinny version. More meat (ahem, fat delicious details) below.
“I cannot believe how much you have covered, the depth and quality of each lesson, and how many ‘tools’ I now have to enable me to soar! Thank you so much Kelly for your generosity, for gifting us with your wisdom.”
It's for anyone who wants to start, grow, or enliven their creative business with smart, soul-based growth strategies.
Whether you’re a beginner, or an accomplished crafter, coach, photographer, artist, writer, or anyone with a big message to share, this e-book will give you concrete information and and empowering inspiration to get you moving toward the direction of your soul-filling mission.
“I’ve taken many workshops and without a doubt your content has far surpassed any of them...you've helped me realize “What am I waiting for?” I’ve got a logo concept going, next is a website redesign and finally to get a blog going. I now know I can do it to. I feel ready. Thank you!”

What is calling you? (Truly)
Because it's not just about building a web presence, marketing like a pro, and building a successful, sustainable income selling your goods. All of that matters, of course, but it's more about answering the little nudge of the whispers that have been calling you. It's about tapping into what is possible when you face the direction of those whispers and begin to create a more brave, full, inspired life. Flying Lessons will help you answer the call. Promise.
“I describe it as my business bible. Not only is it filled with tips + tricks, but it's filled with heart + soul. It's as if you're sitting with an old friend who believes in you and gives you the courage to believe the same. Love it!"
: Once you’ve paid for it, an email will be immediately and automatically sent to your email address (the same one you used at Paypal) with a link to download the e-book/PDF (it’s about 26mb and will take less than a minute to download).
: I recommend reading it with Adobe Reader which is free to download.
Once downloaded, you will have it forever to refer to as your creative biz continues to grow and grow. Because of the nature of e-books (once you download it, it’s yours forever), all sales are final.
