"Sales for April were up over 430%"

Karina Harris
Owner, Waffles and Honey

When the majority of my shows cancelled this Spring, I was pretty nervous about recouping that lost income. Even though I wasn’t fully sure if I could capture those sales online, I went for it anyway using the online marketing ideas I learned during the Momentum 2-Day Retreat. Not only did I recoup my lost revenue, my online sales for April were up over 430% and I beat my super stretch goal for May by $6,000!

F&T - Testimonials V2_Twyla Dill
"I hit my sales goal of over $150K in the first year in the program. "

Twyla Dill
Owner, Twyla Dill Design

Before I joined Momentum, my online sales were sporadic, but after 3 months in the program, my online revenue had grown by 72%. Setting up systems and automation allowed me to grow my business even while taking 2 months off.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Kena Treadway-01
"I finally didn’t have any more excuses as to why I couldn’t do this."

Kena Treadway
Owner, Few Made Jewellery

The biggest jump was from $2k to $8k [per month], and now I’m at a point where I’m considering not continuing in my professional career outside of the jewellery business. It allowed me to be right where I was, and come in and get the help I needed. I’m super excited, and very thankful for this group.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Jeana Rushton
"It has worked!!"

Jeana Rushton
Owner, The Fox and Stone

On the advice of a coach, we upped our prices in hopes of attracting our dream client and IT HAS WORKED!! Even in this incredibly slow month we now have 4 fully custom engagement ring clients on the books and another 2-3 in beginning talks. This is the part of designing that I love and I am unbelievably excited!

F&T - Testimonials V2_Erin Heydenreich
"Pretty much everything I’ve learned about being in business, I learned from Flourish and Thrive."

Erin Heydenreich
Owner, Betina Roza

Last year was my best sales year yet. My sales were up by at least 30-40%, which is a huge jump in sales, but what’s more important to me is how I feel now about being in business. I no longer feel like I’m being steamrolled by all the things that I have to do in the business every day, and to me, that feeling is the biggest measure of success.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Katy Beh
"Huge Win!"

Katy Beh
Owner, KATY BEH Jewelry

It’s June 4th, and I just beat my last year’s TOTAL SALES for the whole year. Huge Momentum win!

"Flourish and Thrive Academy is literally what I’ve been looking for over the past four years."

Mary Ann Saville
Owner, Vedeli Designs

Being in Momentum, I have an entire staff of coaches who all have some sort of expertise who will address any problem you have. I have my Momentum members to touch base with in our Facebook group, I have mentors...There’s not a problem that I’m coming into in my business that can’t be solved with my community at Momentum.”

Ashleigh Branstetter
"If I had to describe Momentum in three words, I would say, 'lots of support!'"

Ashleigh Branstetter

Before I started Momentum, I would say my online sales were zero... I had people going to my website, but nobody was purchasing. Since starting Momentum, I've been having consistent sales each month! I totally feel supported by all the coaching I've received.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Fabi Giguere
"Anybody that doesn’t join doesn’t know what they’re missing."

You have so much support from the team. Every single person is just like having a personal consultant, and that is just priceless.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Yvonne Burkhardt-25
"Since I started with Momentum, I can definitely envision myself having a million-dollar, multimillion-dollar huge business that I've always dreamed about."

Yvonne Burkhardt
Owner, The Mala Babe

I feel like it's possible now. Before I started the program, I wanted it, but I didn't really feel in my soul that I could have it, and I feel like I can have it now, so that's huge.

"$2400 from my live FB show"

I now have in $2400 from my live FB show and still getting residual. What I did at that show is typically what I do in a month, so I’m very pleased. I made sure to put a buyer at the front of the show to set the tone, and the excitement trickled throughout. I did three giveaways, and two of them are set to buy in the next week. It was the best show I have had yet!!

"Tracy has completely changed the way I run my business."

Wendy Pritchard Hively
Owner, CharlieMadison Originals

Tracy has completely changed the way I run my business and how I perceive myself as a business owner. She doesn't just talk the talk - she is passionate about helping other business owners succeed with her focus on specific activities that bring in sales. Her infectious enthusiasm and emphasis on mindset have motivated me to shift from working in my business to working on my business. She has been so much more than an inspiration to me – she has helped me to create a tangible vision for my company’s future, where I’m running my business full-time, instead of just dreaming about it.

"Finding F&TA has given me exactly what I need"

Tisha Abrahmsen

Before discovering Flourish and Thrive Academy, my business was barely surviving, sales were stagnant, and I felt alone and unsure what to do about it. I had no idea how other designers of fashion jewelry "made it”. Finding F&TA has given me exactly what I need to build a successful jewelry brand!

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.

Before LTF, I was making $2000/month. The year I took the course, I made $35K. The next year, I more than doubled my sales, bringing in $75K. Laying the Foundation is a fantastic resource for solo-designers who want to make sales and live a better life.

"Set yourself up for success"

Toby Myles
Owner, Ride Like a Girl Designs

Laying the Foundation is a requirement to set your business (and yourself) up for success! Before Laying the Foundation, I’d only sold 3 or 4 pieces and I was only making a few hundred bucks.

Now, I’m doing so well that I quit my full-time job to focus 100% on my jewelry business!

F&T - Testimonials V2_Andrea Li
"I’m selling out of my collections every season"

Andrea Li

Before joining Laying the Foundation, my business was directionless, expensive, and not turning a profit. I was referred to Flourish & Thrive Academy by a friend in my stone setting class. Even though my sales were slow, I was determined to invest in the program. After taking LTF and applying what I’ve learned, I launched my e-commerce website and I’m selling out of my collections every season.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Estelle Vernon
"My business has grown dramatically since joining Flourish and Thrive."

Estelle Vernon
Owner, Estelle Vernon Designs 


My sales have doubled since 2016 when I took the first challenge. What I’ve gotten out of F&T has helped me be more professional in the way I handle my business, and it’s given me a wonderful jewelry community who have been very supportive of my business. I highly recommend joining Flourish and Thrive and taking the LTF class.

F&T - Testimonials V2_Joanne Simmons
"In 2014 my profits grew by 65% compared to 2013."

Joanne Simmons
Owner, Silver Sculptor 

I don't think that would have happened without Flourish and Thrive Academy. The community of designers on Facebook alone is worth the investment. They're such a bunch of friendly, supportive, knowledgeable women. Without their support and guidance, I would know half of what I know today.

F&T - Testimonials V2_IrinaZhan
"The course is the reason I have a business today."

Irina Zhan
Owner, Irina Victoria Jewelry

Before LTF, I was a girl with a hobby that I really loved. I went from wide-eyed and clueless to quitting my full-time job to work on my business! My biggest milestones have been: selling from my own website, opening wholesale accounts, creating relationships with industry manufacturers, building a focused social media following, and connecting with celebrities (who are wearing my jewelry)!

Plus, instead of spending my weekends at markets, I focused on my website and it ROCKED this year! Instead of 3 web sales a month in the $60-$100 range, I averaged 3 web sales a day in the $300-600 range during the holidays!

I did The Profitable Urgency Promotion Plan System on Friday and ended up with a little over $2K in sales!
