“Buzz Worthy saved me. I’m very heart-centered with my business, but for years I was lost when it came to promotion. Liv combines heart + promoting in a way that it all made perfect sense to my highly sensitive, artistic, right brain. I feel empowered, confident and way more sparkly as my work spreads out into the world since taking this course!”
- Lori Portka, mixed media artist 
“Liv Lane is brilliant in her Buzz Worthy offering. She overflows with ideas to promote your business + she makes it fun! One of my favorite things she did is frequently ask for volunteers and give individual guidance that also served as inspiration for the whole group. I was a volunteer for her writing a press release for a book i just had published. What a gift this was + what a gift this course is! I recommend buzzworthy wholeheartedly!”

“Liv’s enthusiasm, encouragement, and expertise were exactly what I needed to get a jump start on making the work from my studio buzzworthy!” - Jen Shaffer, bookmaker + artist – Painted Fish Studio
