Since I started F&TA I have definitely seen a major growth in my business. In 2012 my business grew about 25%. I started working with Tracy & Robin right before the 2012 holidays and I saw such a spike in December it was unbelievable!

Because of the amazing knowledge, support and community I have received from F&TA, I decided to continue working with Tracy & Robin and I am so glad I have. I have seen a 15% increase in sales this year and can not wait to see what happens as we approach the 2013 holidays!

Robin and Tracy, you’ve done an amazing job. I hope you know how awesome you both are sharing your knowledge and experience. TODAY’S JEWELRY WORLD NEEDS YOU!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I now have the tools I've been needing to fully realize my potential. I am no longer drowning in a sea of self doubt. Your course has armed me with a blast of enthusiasm and confidence.

After taking Multiply Your Profits, I got the kick in the pants I needed to take my business more seriously and act like a CEO. I am much more motivated to design collections on time, source out production and implement a sales plan. I have taken more direct action since taking the course. The simple “act like a CEO” concept has shifted my approach to jewelry design 100%.

I felt very confident signing up for Multiply Your Profits after taking the Laying the Foundation Course. These courses have offered a priceless amount of insight and I honestly feel like I have more tools in my tool belt now. I'm not scared to tackle new challenges because I have the knowledge and support to push through adversity. In fact, I finally opened a bank account solely dedicated to the business, which allows me to reinvest profits.

Thank you for all the amazing information and eye-opening course that has already helped increase my income! The course was everything I had been searching for as I planned to launch my new jewelry line. I've had 3 record breaking months since I've taken the course.
Heather Powers

Between the two of you, the wealth of knowledge, wisdom and experience is still mind boggling to me!!! I love that you come from two different stand points which complement each other. The partnership is a stroke of genius! I am grateful to know the both of you.

My experience working with the Mastermind program has been incredible! My business has grown to the point where I am working full-time in my jewelry business and making it work. The accountability and support has been priceless. Having Tracy and Robin to check in with and keep me on track, pus provide me with suggestions based on years of actual industry experience, has helped me to stay focused. The Mastermind program is perfect for anyone who is dedicated to building a foundation for their jewelry business and is ready to take it to the next level.

When I started working with Tracy & Robin I was at a creative plateau. I had left the corporate world to pursue a creative life which was great but as the business grew so did the number of left brain tasks effectively rendering my right brain comatose. I wasn't even sure if I could even revive the patient and the biggest change I have seen is the creative momentum I have built. Since January, I have introduced several new designs that have been well received by my buyers and I am certain they will be strong sellers. My excitement and confidence for growing my business and my brand is rejuvenated!

I've seen some significant changes in my business since I started working with Tracy & Robin in their Mastermind program. My biggest accomplishments have been developing a cohesive collection with 38 offerings (I started with 12 designs) and launching my new website.
My favorite part of the mastermind was the ability to connect and stay accountable with not only Tracy & Robin, but the other designers, as well. The monthly group and guest calls were a great way to support each other and to also learn from experts and famous designers about different aspects of the business.

The evolution of my business over the past year has been GREAT since I joined the F&TA mastermind program. Tracy and Robin are supportive, positive and keep you going when things are tough. They are always there if I have a question or need help with anything. Garden of Silver is now poised and ready to hit the next level. Working with Robin and Tracy has been an integral part of my business growth

I had been in the business awhile and I thought a lot of the information would have been a repeat of what I have learned over the years. I am so glad the I DID sign up. I now realize the difference between working IN my business and ON my business. In fact, I decided to switch my business directions entirely. The insight and tools that I have received from Tracy & Robin gave me a crystal clear vision of my path for highest profitability.

I've known Tracy for a long time, followed her growing business and the awards that she has won. So I figured working with Tracy & Robin has got to be good and it was. Two great women with tons of resources, connections, guidance and encouragement. The biggest benefit was the renewed passion for my business. I am so much more organized and scheduled as a result. I'm happy, more hopeful, reenergized and making tons more money tha I was before working with them.
Julie Schmidt

In the past, I had worked with creative coaches so I was pretty clear around the “core” foundation of my business. The best part about working with Tracy & Robin was that you could select the level of involvement that worked best for you and your budget. The two of you are so dedicated and involved in the teachings. I am now using the tools you gave me to break down overwhelming tasks and put my clarity into action!

Before taking the course I didn’t have a specific person in mind when I was designing my collections, I just tried to market to everyone. Now that I know exactly who I am targeting, my sales have doubled. I am no longer making pieces just to make them and I am not wasting time and money trying to market to the wrong people.
Andrea Wysocki

At the time I took the DREAM Client Intensive, it felt revolutionary because I had never stopped to really think about it before. Taking the course helped me change design directions when I realized that she was someone quite different that I ever expected.
Jane Bartel Viscidi

The DREAM Client Intensive really helped me dig deep and visualize who my customer is. I’ve changed my marketing and outreach to better target her, so that not only is my work getting into her hands more often, I’m no longer trying to cast such a wide net and missing the mark as a result.
Simone Richmond

I have said this before and happily say it again! Most importantly [The DREAM Client Intensive] helped me stop wasting money on shows and marketing where my DREAM client would not be, and helped me focus in on a strategy that engages my DREAM client where she and her friends gather. If you do the work it will help your business!
Heather McNair Horsey

The DREAM Client Intensive really helped me with my design process and putting together a cohesive collection. Now as I design, I think about what she (my DREAM Client) would wear and what she needs in her wardrobe instead of just making whatever I feel like making.

Working with Tracy and Robin has been a profound experience. I had a vision of growth but really did not understand what that looked liked, as this was my first jewelry business. Through being apart of Flourish & Thrives Laying the Foundation and Multiply Your Profits courses, I was able to understand the landscape of what a thriving and successful jewelry business was, and what that felt and looked like. The group calls were my favorite part. Each call always held that perfect gem of wisdom that inspired me to keep moving forward. Everyone who shared on the call was experiencing my same successes but also the same fears and challenges, which always made me feel like I was not alone. At the end of Laying the Foundation, I had successfully designed my first Summer collection and laid out an action-oriented plan to execute my first Ecommerce website which launched this past May. Over the past nine months my business has grown from a friends and family jewelry business to having an expansive yet focused clientele with a solid foundation through my branding, website and event exposure which doubled my sales this year.

Once you sign up for F&TA’s Laying the Foundation, it’s really a purchase that keeps on giving! The first time I took the course, I ended up doubling my gross income over the previous year. I quit one of my part time jobs last August which I finally had the courage to do! My favorite parts of the course were the money and marketing focus. Even though I am great with numbers, I did feel like I had a better understanding of how my goals affect my desired income. My mindset has changed drastically and I no longer wait for my business to happen to me. It feels good to be driving my business forward.
Jill Davis

Since I’ve been in the jewelry industry so long, I was a little hesitant to sign up for Laying the Foundation. I wasn’t quite sure I would get as much out of it as a newer designer. I am thrilled to say that since taking the course, I have regained and shifted my focus and it’s really paid off. My website sales have increased significantly and I booked $7K in custom orders since I started the course. I usually don’t like taking on custom work but I learned how to make the process seamless and profitable. Tracy & Robin were amazing resources to answer all of my questions as they came up.
Christine Mighion

I would highly recommend F&TA’s Laying the Foundation course to any jewelry designers who need direction, support and confidence! I finally feel like I am moving in the right direction with my collection and my business. The information and course materials provided is way beyond what I would have ever been able to find myself. I loved the bonus contributors because I learned so much about becoming authentic, working from my zone of genius, and creating authentic engagement with my fans. Thank you Tracy & Robin for not only providing such an amazing course, but also being honest and transparent about everything you taught.
Melissa Partridge

My Approach to my business has done a total 180 since I took F&TA's Volume 1 course. This is the first time that I have really treated my business like a business, rather than a hobby. I continue to have “AHA” moments daily as I go over the past modules and worksheets. This course was a business saver for me and I am looking forward to putting action behind what I have learned. I can not WAIT see where my business will go!
Jennifer Wolak

Laying the Foundation is a fantastic course for jewelry designers at any stage in their business. It's true! As designers we often struggle with the same things, so finding the support from Tracy & Robin and the community of designers is brilliant. I love the one-on-one focus Tracy & Robin give during the Q&A calls and the fact that you have the materials to refer back to forever. I've participated in the course each time it launched and the hesitation I initially felt about my business has dissolved. I learn something new each time (and I could probably take it 3 or 4 more times)! Good thing F&TA gives lifetime access! You two ROCK!
Amber Bryce

Signing up for F&TA Volume 1: Laying the Foundation is one of the best decisions I have ever made for my business. At First I was concerned about outlaying the money, but when I look back now, it was such a small investment for such valuable and relevant information. Once you join the Academy, you have lifetime access to the support of an amazing group of designers. Thank you so much Tracy and Robin for creating the course. I was about to give up on my dream and you have truly re-awakened my passion for designing jewelry.
Amanda Starr

After taking F&TA's Volume 1:: Laying the Foundation, I became so much more excited about my business again! The course covers so many important topics specifically related to jewelry businesses. Initially, I was concerned about dishing out the money for the course. However, I am so glad I did because I have much more confidence and structure in my business.
Vanessa Moore

I am so grateful that I found you guys! Being involved in a supportive group of like-minded designers is HUGE since I've been trying to find something like this for years. Since I have taken your program, I am more proactive about trying projects that I have put off for years. Pricing has always been a struggle for me! Even though I know I need to increase my prices, I am taking steps to make that happen. I feel more confident and organized and I'm NOW taking my business more seriously. I am so excited for Volume 2!!
Sarah Gregori

After working with Tracy & Robin, I have really moved into “business” mode and out of “hobby” mode. It is visible in my action steps, my approach to my work, the way I handle my numbers, my pricing, the to-do list, and what is “best practice” now. Sales have increased and since I'm tracking my progress, I can watch and enjoy my growth!Without F&T I'd still be feeling around in the dark hoping to hit the light switch.
Swati Jr*

Most of the jewelry artists I know are in the dark with the business side of things. Since I started working with Tracy & Robin, I have a much clearer picture of the marketplace and the business behind my art. More importantly, I am much more focused, organized, determined and psyched!

Nancy Troske

Wow Tracy, this is one of the best articles about getting out there that I have ever read! I am in this exact situation right now and you helped me loads, thank you! Loving B-School, but this is a different kind of marketing and it's as important for product based businesses I think. You are a design superstar and I'll take your advice! Hopefully it pays off 🙂

Ina Kuehfuss

I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to work with Tracy. Her knowledge and expertise have been invaluable to the growth of my business. She has this ingenious ability to hone in on what your business needs even if you didn't know it needed it. Learning from Tracy has enhanced my creativity and enabled me to see a vision for my business that I never thought was possible. She is generous, focused, insightful, wickedly smart and her energy is infectious. I can honestly say that my business wouldn't be headed in the direction it is today without her guidance and expertise. If you are a designer and are looking for an answer to your problems, Tracy is it!
