  1. Your classes sound intriguing, but do to time restraints (I will be packing for a move.) I would like to attend the Marketing class only. When I clicked to the pay portion of this site I saw only the $200 price. Can you tell me which day and time the Marketing class is and how to pay for it?

    1. Hi Mickey,
      Thanks for alerting me to this glitch in the payment area. I’ll get that fixed right away. Yes, absolutely you can join us for this section. The speakers that will be sharing their years of expertise are Pauline Herrera, PR & Marketing Director for the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, and two others who will be announced shortly. Give me just about an hour and my team will get this issue fixed. Thanks and look forward to meeting you.

    2. Hi Mickey,
      The links are update with options for attending just one session, whether it be marketing, business, or understanding how your work fits into this profession.

      The links are really small however, for some reason my associate wasn’t able to get it to read larger.
      Look forward to meeting you in two weeks,
      Warm regards, Colleen

  2. Thanks Colleen, just one little thing . . . what is the date and time of the Marketing Portion of you program.

    1. Hi Mickey, I just found how we have communicated in the past, it’s through my blog. Thanks for calling and it was nice to put a voice with your picture! Hope to officially meet you soon!

  3. The Marketing portion is scheduled to begin at approximately 12:30- 12:45 and last until 1:40 with questions until 2pm.

    This will be presented by Pauline Herrera at Denver Office of Cultural Affairs and I’m solidifying an additional special guest with expertise in social media.
    Thanks for your question Mickey, see you next week!
