small business quote
Small Biz 101


How do I? Where do I? What is? Why do I?


Learning how to run your small business can seem overwhelming with all the details, things to learn, and unknowns, right? It sure was for me! So I rolled up my sleeves, turned on the Keurig, and dedicated two years to learning the basics "and then some" outside my full-time career in public Education.


Now, I'm sharing it all with you - to save you time, money, and headache. Designed with online teachers and Etsy shop owners in mind, this collection provides As to your Qs (but may fit other types of small businesses, too).


Choose a mini workshop that answers your specific question or choose the bundle and save.



Don't miss a course or workshop opening!


Interactive workshops are capped at 15 students to make it an engaging, collaborative community for all learners. Let's hang out!

Hi, I'm Robin!


I believe finding our truest selves can be both fun & "messy" (literally & figuratively!). I also believe being inspired, informed, and empowered is the {only} way to be.


After 8 years in the Navy, 27 years in public Education, and 10 years developing the confidence (and skills) to be my own boss, I've taken the leap. Now, through RobinLK Studios, I teach women ready for change (big or small) and teen girls slaying their goals how to use creativity as a tool for success.


A lifelong writer and player with words, I stumbled into mixed-media art in 2015 during a difficult family time.... Want to know how the roadblocks and speedbumps led to here? Check out my story with its twists and turns here.


Wishing you creative curiosity and soul-smiling messiness,

Robin
