    Hi Courtney,

    Thanks for sharing these online courses with us. I am definitely interested in the Etsy shop. I have one now that isn’t doing very well so whatever tips I can get, I’m there! 🙂

    This year, one of my goals is to learn new skills as well as enhance the ones I currently have. I’ll be looking into Pinterest strategy courses as well as SEO and Email marketing. I recently completed a Creative Writing course which was super beneficial!
