Find out what it takes to get your creative courses ONLINE!

Join Virtual teacher Lyric Montgomery Kinard for this FREE workshop. She will help you understand the basics of what you need to get your virtual workshops up and running.

The video lessons will walk you through how to structure and translate your live workshops into virtual offerings in the most efficient and cost-effective manner. The LIVE coaching sessions will answer YOUR specific questions. We'll have three of them to accommodate global time zones.

Lyric has been teaching online since before video was even a thing...

Live-virtual zoom workshops via zoom allow you to teach for guilds and groups around the globe.  On-demand courses can create passive income while you sleep.  

Learn to build tie-ins between your in-person, virtual, and on-demand offerings that will leverage your time and increase your income.

But . . .
Are virtual classes really as good as in-person?
(Sometimes they are even better!)

What if my students aren't tech savvy?
(We give you the tools to make it easy for them)

What if I can't afford new equipment?
(You probably have almost everything you need right now!)

What if my WIFI goes out?
(Believe it or not... we can help you work around that too!)

You, my friend, are amazing! You teach people how to make beautiful things. You help your students develop and master the skills and find the creativity that brings balance and joy to their lives.

 Now, just between us, how is the balance in YOUR life?  

Do you want to be able to reach students outside of your immediate vicinity? Do you really want to go back to the full-time travel hustle in order to make the income you need? What if you could limit your travel schedule to exactly the right amount of time for YOU, and still bring in a higher income than you did before?

It doesn't have to be this way.
Find the perfect balance for YOU!
