Hi there! It’s me, Jacques (a.k.a. The Online Course Guy), and it’s time for another podcast. This time around I spoke with Melissa Esplin from Calligraphy.org.

Melissa’s been offering calligraphy classes since 2011, and has had some impressive success with her course so far. She had plenty of interesting tidbits to share, so don’t miss this episode!

Don’t quit. There’s a high cost to quitting.
