How Kelsey of Paper & Oats Made $20k Launching Her First Course to 900 Subscribers (Using Your First 1K®)

Kelsey Baldwin is the graphic designer, Etsy seller, and infopreneur behind Paper & Oats.

She is a student in my Your First 1K course (which you can find here). 

A few months ago, Kelsey sent me this email:

"Your First 1K was a huge game changer for me, it helped me to actually be strategic about my email list which resulted in it growing from around 400 when I started the course to nearly 2,000 six months later.

Your First 1K also kick started the creation of my first online course, The InDesign Field Guide, which earned $20,000 in it's first launch (just 6 months after starting Your First 1K.

In Your First 1K, I also got to know 2 other designers who had been acquaintances before, and we've now formed a mastermind group where we chat daily about our current projects, get feedback + advice about our businesses, and we even met up for a retreat this year and had a blast planning + scheming for the new year. Our mastermind has been an incredible benefit to all of us, and it all started in Your First 1K.Your course was a great foundation for me to learn about strategic list building and product creation in an easy-to-follow format that I could apply to my business right away. The Slack group is so great. Thanks for all the work you put into it, it's been a fabulous resource for me, and many others."

I was like, girl we need to tell your story!

Kelsey has generously allowed us to ask her all about her business, her launch, and what she's going to do next with what she's learned in Your First 1K (her second course, Etsy on Autopilot!).
