When you enroll in CBA between April 15 and April 19, 2019, you will receive a complimentary digital copy of Pam's newest planner (due to be released in June 2019) the Productivity Planner for Crochetpreneurs.
Be one of the first to get your hands on this invaluable resource for planning your goals and creating systems to ensure those goals become reality.
Hi, I’m Pam – the part-crochet designer, part-psychotherapist, and full-on-cheerleader behind the Crochetpreneur blog where I combine my wisdom as a counselor and experience as a six-figure Etsy seller to help other makers find personal and financial freedom through artisan-entrepreneurship.When I’m not coaching, counseling, or crocheting, I spend my days caring for my newly-toddling grandson. I’m an introvert who loves people, an encourager, a solution-finder, and a creative-thinker who spent more time reading encyclopedias and playing with yarn as a kid than was probably normal. And, while I never did marry Donny Osmond, I’m thankful to have crafted an amazing life in the beautiful mountains of Colorado with my husband, Kevin, and our two neurotic pups.
Is CBA right for me?
If you identify as a fiber arts business owner (or future business owner) who wants access to a supportive community and an ever-growing library of business-building resources which offer direction, encouragement, and goal-crushing motivation...CBA is for you.
I signed up! Now what?
Once you've enrolled, you'll receive your login credentials via email. Simply log in, click "business academy" on the menu bar, and watch the welcome video to get the lay of the land and start learning!
How long will I be able to access the content?
As long as you're a CBA member, you will have access to all past and newly released content. That means you can watch videos, print workbooks, and access lessons whenever you want! You'll also have access to the private Facebook group for FB lives, community support, co-working opportunities, and office-hours with Pam.
You say that the content will continue to be built out. Does that mean there's nothing for me to learn right now?
With six modules and over 50 lessons, there's already something for everyone inside the academy. Whether you're a new business or an experienced seller, the lessons within the StartUp module alone are enough to make your first month's membership worth it!
What if I want to cancel?
Your Crochetpreneur® Business Academy membership is a month-to-month membership and you can cancel at any time but I sure hope you'll stay! When you choose to cancel, your membership will be terminated immediately (regardless of your renewal date) and you will lose access to content and the private Facebook community.
I get that CBA is an exclusive community, but is it also inclusive/will I be welcome there?
Montgomery Grice Enterprises, Inc DBA Crochetpreneur®, which oversees the Crochetpreneur® Business Academy, is committed to the inclusion of all people regardless of race, age, size, culture, ability, ethnicity or nationality, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, marital status, religious affiliation, and socioeconomic status. You are welcome and safe here.
