It is an amazing online resource for budding SAHM entrepreneurs (“mompreneurs”), or for those looking to learn or hone a creative skill.

Learning CREATIVE SKILLS can give us moms the confidence we need to take the next steps towards turning dreams into reality, and Creative Live is a one-stop-shop for getting those skills.
How NOT to Suck
My law degree was pretty useless to me when I decided to open my Etsy store, and I wasn’t sure HOW to make it all come together. Truth be told, I wanted to try something new, and I didn’t want to suck at it.
So, I knew I had a LOT to learn. But, as ALL moms know, me-time is worth its weight in GOLD, and I didn’t want to waste that precious time spinning my wheels. Sound familiar?
I needed a reliable source for learning about being an entrepreneur in general, and succeeding on Etsy specifically. My husband, a genius photographer in his own right, insisted I check out Creative Live. Just like that, I was off and running!
What IS Creative Live?
Many of us have had to endure the CEU’s (continuing ed units) in our respective professions, right? Well, Creative Live courses are like the CEU’s you daydream about taking….cake decorating, sound mixing, interior design, sewing,—you name it!
Basically, it’s an online education platform, and the classes are all taught by leading industry professionals on an international scale.
It’s home to all the things your little creative heart wants to do, see and learn—taught by the people who know a thing or two about your subject of choice. Check out the course catalog here to see if there’s something that could work for a creative side hustle for you!
FREE Test Run
If you’re like me, then you’re hesitant to spend any money on yourself—especially for something that you may consider a “pipe dream.” Creative Live has a very effective trick up its sleeve for people like us…FREE ON-AIR CLASSES.
That’s right—they have classes running all day long, and you can watch for FREE. You can even check out the calendar and get notifications about the free classes. Did you hear me? Hello! FREE.
So, all you have to do is find the classes you’re interested in watching and sign up! You don’t have to buy anything until you’re sure you want the class for life.
I watched about a naptime’s worth of How to Turn Your Etsy Store into a Sales Machine before I knew I needed to own this course. I knew I needed to be able to pause, rewind and repeat all the pearls of wisdom the course was dishing out.
That’s when I took the plunge, and it changed everything for me.
Confidence to Dream BIG
What I love about Creative Live is the spirit of camaraderie that falls over a backdrop of DREAM BIG!
It’s for people like me (and YOU) who really want to make some positive changes for ourselves and do something we love but have no idea where to start.
“There’s a creator in all of us…We make dreams come true, problem-solve, and express ourselves through creativity. It shapes our identity and ties us together. Creativity gives us hope – helps us innovate and imagine. It’s how we change the world.”Creative Live
Because of the ease, accessibility, and quality of the information I learned on Creative Live, I felt like I could actually take steps toward making a few changes in my own little world that made me happier. And, TRUST me, I struggled for a long time figuring this happiness thing out!
Invest in YOU
If you’re a working mom looking to change careers, or a SAHM who wants to step back into the workforce in a new way, then you may be searching for a place to hone your existing skills OR to find new ones entirely.
So, what’s this magical land that helps makes dreams come true?
