Praise from The PDF Workshop participants
“On a scale of 1-10, I give this course a 20! If there was ever a perfect course in terms of gaining full spectrum knowledge, structure, organization, and creative excitement, this really is IT.”
“By learning how to make a really professional looking e-book, I gained more confidence + pride in what I have to offer, and how important my gift is to the world.
This seems simple, but trust me, it’s already ripple-effecting in the bigger picture of how I see my place in the world, and how I perceive myself as a teacher.
I will absolutely recommend this course 100% to anyone I know who is SERIOUS about creating a truly professional looking e-book for their website.
Christie teaches things you never even knew of to want to learn, yet after you learn it you know you can’t go without it!
And her hands-on years of experience in the publishing field gives students an ‘edge’ so that their e-books or business materials enter the digital world looking AMAZING.
On a scale of 1-10, I give this course a 20! If there was ever a perfect course in terms of gaining full spectrum knowledge, structure, organization, and creative excitement, this really is IT.”
~ ROSA CONTI, Inspirational Writer

The videos were great, and I enjoyed having the space to interact with other people.
Great job, Christie! I’m really impressed with what you’ve put together here. Tons of information, well presented, and easy to understand.

“As a busy mom, and in a different time zone than Christie and the rest of the class…I loved being able to post my questions to facebook as it was convenient for me and then get an answer back from not only Christie, but from the whole group too.”
“The course itself was laid out amazingly well. Everything was incredibly clear and easy to follow and learn from.
I would have gotten value from the course just from the videos and text instruction, without the live interaction. BUT the live interaction on the facebook group was my favorite part.

“I learned so much and have created so much in such a short period of time.”
“I have taken many workshops and classes and this is by FAR the best.
I learned so much and have created so much in such a short period of time. Although my purpose was to create a PDF as an opt-in gift, which I have, I have been able to use what I learned to create all kinds of branded material from business forms, marketing materials and videos using Keynote to name a few.
While I would love to be able to hire a graphic designer for all of my work, it isn’t in my budget and it is such a value as a small business owners to be able to do some of this work on their own.”
~ DAWN GEPFERT of Dawn P. Gepfert Design, Interior Architecture and Design

“I can’t stress how much I love having all this content in one place.”
The workshop has given me the confidence to do this.
While I’m sure that I could get some tutorials here and there on YouTube for free, I can’t stress how much I love having all this content in one place and that it’s all consistent and cohesive.
The guest speaker calls were great, too!

“During my long career I have worked with many artists and I know you are amongst the best. It is very unique for someone to have the full package of art talent (with great color sense), copy writing skills, technical expertise, and the ability to communicate and “get” client’s ideas. I found some other artists – but they are not in your league.

“I’m so happy with my brand refresh.
I was fairly happy with my site, but there a few things that needed to be fixed. I’m pretty web savvy, but they were important design elements that I just don’t have the skill set to do on my own.
Christie listened to what I wanted, and she totally got it! She was able to design some really beautiful elements that have made my site come together and pop in a way that I love!
She was easy to work with, a great listener, and also totally open to my feedback. I have a pretty hectic life and schedule as a solo-preneur and she was also able to roll with my crazy schedule. I really enjoyed working with her, and highly recommend her! Christie rocks.”
