Five Free Classes!

Welcome to November! We are looking forward to some exciting new classes on the Alt Channel this month. We have the amazing Erin Loechner, of Design for Mankind, hosting TWO resource parties. If you were lucky enough to attend her party at Alt last January, you won't be disappointed with these! We have a two separate classes for two different levels of bloggers, because at each level your skills and needs are different; we want to celebrate that.

We also have a new class called Ask an Accountant, with the amazing Helena Swyter of Sweeter CPA. She will answer all those lingering questions you have about the business side of blogging. She can help you get your ducks in a row before the end of the year.

Ask a Lawyer was such a popular class, we have split it into two sessions for November: Contracts, and Setting up a Business. Each class will cover the basics, and let you ask lawyer Steve Urquhart all the questions you may have concerning those tricky subjects.

It's time to start thinking about business cards. Many of the ones that show up to Alt are showstoppers, and if you want yours to be one too, take Laurie Smithwick's class, How to Win at Business Cards. It will give you great inspiration, and help you be on top of your game at Alt this year.

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
