"I have been involved in craft, small business, design and start-ups for a long time..

Lauren's course material was extremely relevant, interesting and practical, and was presented in a dynamic and engaging way...

Having attended a few courses in my career, I have found some of them a little ‘dry’, and soon forgotten. Lauren's was an exception. The useful handbook is on my desk, and a new task-list is already in my diary. This is real stuff, that can be applied!

I would highly recommend Lauren's services to any small business owner in the creative and craft sector."

The Costing and Pricing presentation blew my mind! I knew there would be additional costs, but I had no idea how much would be added on for each step in the process. Very informative.

— Wendy Viola

"Loved Lauren's presentation on costing and pricing. Really useful (scary!) information, jargon, with practical methods and tools to implement."

-Corinne Erasmus

The most useful part was... "Understanding the real costs that are involved in being an international exporter!!"

-Sarah Wassell

The most useful part was...

"Clarifying some of the major costing hurdles for getting products exported. Quite a light bulb moment to see how many add-ons there are to the basic price that they are selling for locally."

-Kerry Abramowitz

"All the costs associated with exporting. Appreciated that it was so granular and that it linked back to day 1. Never knew there were so many things to take into account."

-Bronwyn Hendricks
