Flea School gives you practical tools to start, grow or scale your creative endeavor. It's 6 weeks of learning and planning based on what we know works for creative businesses run by passionate founders.
But that's not even the most valuable reason to join.
Join because it's worth it to say YES to yourself. Join because you've had an idea in the back of your mind for a while (you know who you are) and you know you can make it happen, if only you had a little guidance and a lot of grit. Join because you've been wanting to shift what you already do into a business that supports YOU more– both financially and creatively. Join because it's what you know you should do but there's always a reason you haven't (mostly time and money and fear).
Join to say yes to your dreams.
