A personal note from Sam:
Can we speak frankly?
I think it’s time you stopped hiding.
You have been using “tech overwhelm,” and “hating social media,” as an excuse for too long now.
You have mastered so many complex and complicated things in your life – I am 100% sure that with a little help from my team, you can not only get the hang of social media and print-on-demand – you will become a confident, joyful internet superstar in just a few weeks.
The world needs your voice.
The world needs your good work.
The world needs your designs.
And YOU CAN DO IT.
You can amaze your friends and grow your bank account all while having so much fun discovering this big toy called the worldwide web.
They say that in the end, you only regret the things you don’t do –
So why not stretch yourself a bit this summer?
Amaze the family with your new-found knowledge.
Astonish the spouse with your new source of income.
Astound yourself with your own magical power to transform yourself – again.
You can do this.
Now is the perfect time.
Now is the only time.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
I think I’m too old to learn this stuff.
Nonsense. Your brain loves to learn new things. Plus, we’ve already got at least one 76-year old person signed up, so I think that makes you the youngster in the group.
I hate social media.
Well…you probably don’t “hate” it. In truth, you are actually just lacking understanding, compassion, and insight into how social media actually works. Once you see the creative tapestry – and how fun it can be – you’ll find yourself absolutely delighted by it.
I don’t even know what TikTok is.
That’s exactly why we’re offering Calm and Friendly. So you can ask any question you have without feeling embarrassed. And you can learn about all the new platforms and feel very hip and with it.
I don’t want to lose creative control.
You won’t. These courses are about putting you in COMPLETE creative control, so you can be offering the world your best self.
I don’t want to sell cheap junk. Ethical sourcing is important to me.
Yep. Us, too. We are also interested in ethical sourcing and creating high-quality products, and in Make It Real, we’ll show you exactly how to know that what you’re selling is only the best.
I don’t understand how to connect my designs with my shop with my email list with my PayPal….help!
In Make It Real, we will show you step-by-step how to do exactly that. It’s not nearly as hard as it seems. Promise.
Instagram – should I do posts? Stories? Reels? What’s the difference? Does it matter?
In Calm and Friendly, we’ll show you not just what all those things are and how they fit together, but more importantly, you’ll understand how you can figure this kind of question out for yourself as you move forward.
Can I use this course to grow my email list? I know Sam says an email list is important.
Absolutely. Having a vibrant social media and internet presence is simply the perfect way to attract IDEAL CLIENTS and FANS to your email list, where, then, you have total control over messaging, privacy, and context. Social media is the garden path that walks them right up to your front door.
What if I don’t like it?
Our policy is “Satisfaction Guaranteed or Your Tuition Cheerfully Refunded” within the first two weeks. No questions asked. We’re just glad you were able to give it a try.
Why isn’t Sam teaching this?
As Sam herself will readily admit, she isn’t really enough of an expert to teach either of these courses. That’s why she hired Veronica and Hannah to be on her team to begin with. And now, having worked with both of them for years, she is delighted to share their wisdom, good humor, and great enthusiasm with you.
So it’s TWO courses being offered at once? Huh?
Yes – we are offering two courses – and they happen on alternate Saturdays.
So the schedule looks like this:
Sat. July 10: Calm and Friendly – Session One
Sat. July 17: Make It Real – Session One
Sat. July 24: Calm and Friendly – Session Two

So you can take one or the other – or both! They complement each other perfectly.
There are few people who blend a rational sense of system so beautifully with an open and caring heart. Samantha Bennett is the definition of a teacher/guide – she imparts awareness and knowledge with the gusto of an Irish bartender and holds her students close like the protective lioness grooming her cubs to rule their jungle.
