Kat – I’ve already made back (at least) half of the money I spent on your course, simply by watching these first couple videos! I am SO thrilled I trusted my instincts to take Online Zen, in spite of my busy schedule. SO worth it! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Now I have a COMPLETELY 100% IMPROVED WEBSITE! Would I recommend Online Zen? Definitely! I learned a ton and I was not new to website development. This course is opening so many doors for me…have I mentioned I’m excited?!?
–Kellee Coviak, MT-BC | Lansing, MI
“There is nothing this comprehensive for websites on the web! I built my site prior to the start of Online Zen, but I would have LOVED to have this support when I started my process! I am confident and proud of the journey I have made towards creating an online presence that I really really LOVE.
It was reassuring to see the process laid out so clearly and get the chance to tweak things with my own personal Zennn guide. I also felt empowered to encourage others in the community. Big high fives from Ohio!”
–Bonnie Hayhurst, MT-BC | Hudson, OH
“I didn’t think I would have enough time for the course. Online Zennn gave me the best possible results in the shortest amount of time! It is exactly what every non-tech savvy, sole-proprietor without a website needs. Kat explains all the tricks, step-by-step in very simple terms.
Participating in Online Zennn gave me the exact results that I wanted. Kat provided the know-how and the accountability I needed to accomplish my goal of building my own website—withouth having to invest an unreasonble amount of time or money. Thank you Kat for simplifying and streamlining this process!
Given my very busy life, I could only have accomplished what I did with my website through Online Zennn. Online Zennn is pure genius!”
–Sam Brodsgaard, MA, MT-BC | Fort Worth, TX
“I am NOT a computer person, and I was concerned this course would be way beyond my capabilities. Online Zennn created a positive experience for me rather than another failure in the “tech” world. Now I have a much greater awareness of my online presence. And more importantly, I have control over my website– to change and enhance things as needed, and I have the confidence to do it!
The feedback from Kat was amazing. She responded quickly to comments and gave detailed instructions on how to proceed.
I also enjoyed being able to read others’ comments. I didn’t always feel like I was the only one. Watching everyone’s site reviews was so informative. It gave me lots of ideas.
I gained a wealth of information, and it appeared that even the more tech-savvy participants learned things, too. It really feels great having that control over my website and not having to go through a third party.”
— Cindy Long, MT-BC | Reading, PA
“I did not think that I would have adequate time to devote to the coursework, but the online format allowed me to complete the coursework when and where I chose. The content was good, the course was well thought out and the presentation was clear.
I just wanted to thank you again… You gave me the push I needed to start a blog. It is more just my thoughts and a glimpse inside my head (gasp) – but it is a creative outlet for me and pretty therapeutic. Thank you!”
–Terri Smith-Morse, MT-BC | San Clemente, CA
“I feel far more confident in my website skills. In the course, I could go at my own pace, watch each video with Kat’s relaxed, supportive tone, and take the clear call to action at the end of each lesson.
Would I recommend Online Zennn? YES. YES. YES. It is a great way to earn credits and to improve your web presence! I have a lot of faith in Kat’s skills as a teacher.”
–Jennifer Sokira, MMT, LCAT, MT-BC | Monroe, CT
“Online Zennn inspired me to take a closer look at the way I structure the time I spend online. Previously, I felt like every moment outside of work was spent trying to manage all my online responsibilities. I’m now working on a personal system to really help me stay comfortable on top of everything without it taking over my life. A much more Zennn approach.
The videos were awesome!! Seriously… It’s SO helpful to have someone show you the process step by step. And reading tutorials can often be really confusing. I also loved that Kat included the advanced topics and bonuses. I found those to be extremely helpful! I even Zennnified my email! As someone who is middle-of-the-road when it comes to online skill set, I find that many classes are either too basic, or way too advanced for me. I knew that Online Zennn was going to be starting at the basics, but I was thrilled when I realized there was a ton of info that was applicable for me as well!
I have much more clarity about the process of setting up a good blog from start to finish. There were some tools in Online Zennn (such as SEO and setting up Google Analytics) that I realized I wasn’t using properly and was able to start implementing them on my blog.
When I first started blogging, it still took me SOOOoooo long and so many mistakes to really get the hang of it. This class is exactly what needs to be out there for starting and maintaining a website!”
–Megan Resig, LCAT, MT-BC | Rochester, NY
“I’ve been studying this topic for years and thought I would know everything. I learned so much!!! I feel competent playing around with my sites now, knowing that I won’t break them. 😉
I also know what my web designer did when he set up my site. And now I’m going to set up websites for two other businesses!”
–Janice Harris | Dallas, TX
“I would proudly direct anyone interested in music therapy to a number of sites that have grown and flourished as a result of this online course. I love Kat’s personable approach. She is professional, but also herself. Also, she explains each step in a thorough manner, and the information is not easy to explain! The variety of materials kept it fresh and exciting! I found myself eagerly awaiting the next released bonus!!
Online Zennn made me want to create a whole new website, just for the fun of it! The best part was the website reviews. What a service! Kat found something good in each site, but also gave valuable constructive criticism, which is extremely important.
I could tell that Kat knew her stuff and that the participants trusted her. I knew that if Kat was involved, it would be a great program! I have seen an amazing web presence evolution in our field.”
–Rachel See, MA, MT-BC | Austin, TX
“I wasn’t sure the course would benefit me because I’ve been blogging for a couple of years. But Online Zennn has given me confidence, perspective, direction, and lots of quick tips that I can use right away. I would recommend Online Zennn to both newcomers and established bloggers. The combination of knowledge, website review, CMTE credit & cost makes it totally worth it.”
–Michelle Erfurt, MT-BC | Jensen Beach, FL
“My VISA card is ready to be swiped for anything Kat offers online! I thought the content would consist of information I already knew. But, the straight-to-the-point video tutorials have now helped my site become more focused, interactive, and independently maintained. Online Zennn turns a seemingly complicated topic into easily accessible information for the non-techie.”
–Meghan Callaghan, MT-BC | Flagstaff, AZ
“I wasn’t sure I had enough time or money to invest in the course. But to you, I would say “Oh YEAH!!! Just DO IT!” Online Zennn is a confidence builder for creating a website. The opportunity to learn from Kat and others in the community is wonderful. I’m now connected to more people and more confident working on my website. In addition, I am able to be more specific when asking for help.”
–JoAnn Jordan, MT-BC | Hays, KS
“I’ve now taken the crucial steps forward in developing MY presence online —Most essential with the current job climate. This course is MANDATORY given how we can, as a professional community, support each other in “the cloud” and help our future employers really understand why they need us on board. I’m grateful for all Kat’s work, insight, intuition, and quick responses in the course. Thank you.”
–Cheryl Holland, MT-BC | Dallas, TX
“I didn’t think I would have enough time to complete the course, but Online Zennn helped me break down our strategy into small pictures and more “workable” and attainable goals. Anyone (music therapist or NOT!) should join this fantastic community and class. This is a nice way to dive into clarity. There were many things that I did not know when I first created my site, and now I can implement them with ease.”
–Meryl Brown, MM, MT-BC, DT | Bloomington, IL
“The course was full of valuable information and conveniently provided in my own home so that I did not have to leave ongoing jobs, kids, and schedules. Also I did not accumulate travel expenses!
It was very helpful to contact the other participants and see what others are doing in the world.”
–Antoinette Morrison, MT-BC | Dallas, PA
“I’m not sure there are enough adjectives to describe what a wonderful course you have put together.Truly, you’ve done something wonderful that really helps people…people like me who are not super confident about techie things and ready to defer to just about anyone who might appear to know something..you know some big techie-secret. The overall effect Online Zen had on me: I actually feel like I have internalized this material. Kat’s delivery is clear and light-hearted as you taught through the videos. I ended up feeling clear and light-hearted after watching. I wanted to keep watching. (I’ve taken other courses with videos…that is not what usually happens for me…I usually fall asleep or just get bored or get lost…something.) Online Zennn increased my confidence and diminished my fear. It got me to a place where I am starting to feel creative about using WordPress. For me that says something important and nourishing about the long term effects of Online Zennn. Thanks, Kat. The course was amazing!
–Susan Seale | Victoria, BC Canada
“When we heard about Online Zennn, it was a no-brainer. Thanks to Online Zennn, our site has had a complete overhaul. Our site is interactive and useful rather than a static about us page. Also, we are looking into monetizing our site and providing blog post resources to our clients. The best part was the site reviews. It’s very nice to get someone to look directly at your site and give you feedback. Kat explains things very clearly to people who are not very technically-minded.”
–Kevin and Dana Bolton, MEd, MMT, MT-BC | Murfreesboro, TN
“I now have more networking contacts, improved confidence with online stuff, a clear direction, and a toolbox of resources. Online Zennn gave me ideas for how to offer a CMTE course on songwriting, too! Very exciting!
