In five (5) sessions you will write a business plan, choose your business structure, create and register your business name and brand, obtain your business license and any permits required, set up your bookkeeping and tax payment process.

My first lesson was yesterday. Julie is very easy to talk to, which is great for someone as introverted as I am. She is thorough in gaining an understanding of what you want to learn and gives several “homework” assignments for you to work on before your next lesson. I’m looking forward to our next session.
Carter
I learned a great deal from working with Julie in a very short amount of time. She's extremely knowledgable and very patient. I look forward to continuing sessions with her in pursuit of achieving my goals.
Maria W.
I was a little sceptical at first how this classroom session was going to go. Julie is exactly what I have hoped for in an instructor, very thorough in teaching in a manner that helps me understand not only about my camera, but, what is expected. I believe that Julie is a good fit for me.

Great!! She does a great job with breaking down information to make it easier to understand and learn the content. She wants you to be successful in learning the material. If there is something you do not understand,she will go over it until you comprehend the information. Janalee is a true teacher because she is very patient and understanding when it comes to your learning style.

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

I can't say enough about the knowledge and support Rebecca provided for my daughter while preparing for college exams. Rebecca offered test insights and clues to breakdown difficult passages and tricky answers - boosting my daughter's scores significantly! Happy to share that my daughter is accepted by her first choice college. Rebecca is professional, tenacious, positive and a joy to work with. Wish I could give her 10 stars!

Tell your story. Discover your voice.
Creative Writing • Songwriting • Public Speaking

NPR's Here & Now described me as "Writing and singing full-frontal." I am a spoken-word artist, musician and public speaker. I specialize in Creative Nonfiction (diary, memoir, telling your story with vivid details). I love to capture memories. I love writing from real life. It is said that I captivate my audiences with my ability to tell a vivid, memorable, meaningful, and true story.

In our Creative Writing lessons, I teach you how to wander through the sensory details of your life and craft your life experience into a work of creative nonfiction that you, your loved ones, and if you choose, your audiences will treasure like a precious gift.

You will discover the power in your unique voice, the importance of the facts of your life, the glory in the details, and the thrill of seeing your life become art. We can work at your pace, word by word, or page by page.

About Licity

I love relating to all kinds of people. People love to tell me their stories and I love to hear them. I help you hear your story and then tell your own stories through song, writing, and speaking. I believe that creativity is a path to healing and must involve a deep connection to our emotions.

I know of no one who can show you the way better than Licity. And moreover, she will give you honest, helpful, heartfelt feedback that will most certainly guide you in the direction you were already headed, even if you didn't recognize it yourself. She is a wise and crafty wordsmith, with an amazing depth of feeling. Your time spent learning from her will push your creativity to a new level. I know this firsthand. 5 stars!
