questions asked in the masterclass


what people are saying...

I was on the fence about purchasing Mable Tan’s POD Masterclass featuring Cat Coquillete, Kate Rhees and Leana Fischer for financial reasons. Some of the best educational money I have spent. It was great to hear from these 3 experts while they discussed their platforms (Society 6, Spoonflower and Etsy /Printful). I came out with some expert tips about each of these platforms and completely INSPIRED. I learned the benefits of each platform. As always, Mable is gracious, personal and “real” asking the questions we want answers to. If that wasn’t enough there were bonus “freebies” and Mable provided a complete transcript with hyperlinks to the things they discussed so I didn’t have to worry about note taking, I just SOAKED it all in. A real value. I got more than money’s worth. I loved this Masterclass. Can’t wait to watch it again!!!

Thank you for providing us with a pdf transcript of the Masterclass, a guide for beginners, and the other resources. This must have taken oodles of your time so just want to let you know how much I appreciate this as a newcomer to POD. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the class and learning from your guest designers. Many of my questions were answered, if not all, and I have a clearer vision of my focus and next steps. It’s people like you who make a true difference in the lives of others.

Mable Tan’s POD Masterclass is well worth the investment for anyone starting their POD journey. In answering Mable’s specific questions the panel of experts provided a lot of usable tips – both little steps for immediate action, and insights for longer-term planning. I came away with a long list of suggestions to improve my experience on the POD platforms I am already using, and things to consider as I evaluate which POD platforms to expand into. The many bonuses were icing on the cake after all the valuable information provided in the class. Thank you, Mable, Cat, Kate and Leana for sharing your hard-earned knowledge and experience!

In 7 years of being a full time artist, I’ve had so many different offerings, but one that intimidated me was licensing. I was always curious about it so I signed up for the POD masterclass at the very last minute and am so glad I did! All of the speakers were a wealth of knowledge and I found myself taking pages of notes throughout the entire class. It simplified and demystified licensing your artwork and I left feeling so empowered! Actually right after the workshop, I restarted my Society6 and Casetify accounts. A few weeks later, I was surprised that I received $120 from sales, and those were from artwork that I’ve painted YEARS ago. How cool is that?! I am so thankful to Mable and all of the speakers for sharing so openly about their journey and making this seem totally possible (because it totally IS!)

This masterclass is very informative & truly eye-opening. I recommend it to anyone who's looking to generate new streams of income as an artist but doesn't know where to start or which next steps to take first. It has opened a new realm of possibility for me which I couldn't be happier. I also loved that the three artists featured in this masterclass come from different backgrounds, have different experiences and give practical advice, so you can choose which ones work best for you based on where you are in your journey. And to top it all, the bonuses are extremely valuable too.
Definitely worth the investment

I found Mable Tan's POD Masterclass with Kate Rhees, Cat Coquillette and Leanna Fischer to be a fantastic source of inspiration. These three industry experts chatted about their respective platforms (Spoonflower, Society6 and Etsy/Printful) in an easy going manner while divulging encouraging insights and an in depth knowledge of POD. I came away from the class feeling extremely motivated, thinking I too, can make it work. Thank you so much Mable for the brilliant class, the subsequent transcript and hyperlinks and other bonus freebies. Worth every cent!

I took the POD masterclass to inspire me, (the kick in the arse kind of inspire), to jump start my older Redbubble & Printful accounts. I so loved it because it is detailed & specific. Your speakers know what they are doing & tell all. The POD masterclass made me realize that it is possible to make money when I am consistent, inspired & diligent. Absolutely worth the money. My POD Mantras are:  "Magic Happens When I Am Challenged”, "Stay Creative Even if It Seems Crazy Hard”.
