⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ​​I love Mel! Even before doing her course, I learned so much just by following her on LinkedIn. She has a wealth of knowledge and she communicates it so clearly. I joined her class and received even more, more knowledge, more advice, more of Mel's expertise about my specific project, and more access to builders like me. – Osnat (Os) Benari

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Thank you Mel Shapcott for such a wonderful class! I was lost and swimming about on my own in OpenSea and now thanks to you I have lost the FOMO, gotten grounded from your expertise that provided me with a good sense of all that is required, AND you created an organized, encouraging and friendly environment in which to share the experience with the other students some very cool creatives!! Well done and thank you. 🌺🙏👩‍🎨🤗 – Mary Taylor

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Mel’s course provided the structure I was looking for. She clearly put a lot of thought into the organization of the class and the topics covered. This was supplemented by written materials and helpful links. Mel brings extensive personal experience to the class and is generous with her knowledge and time.

While there is always more to learn and the NFT space is constantly changing, thanks to Mel’s course, I now have the basic tools and knowledge to mint my own NFTs. – Paul Housberg

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ It was an awesome class Mel, I learned a lot and you are a gifted teacher and you can tell that you have also done the work, making your information all the more valuable. If you want to get into the NFT market this class is so worth it and an excellent resource not just for artists but collectors, writers, and for learning about any other use you can conceive of to utilize an NFT for. To those taking the next class it is amazing, Mel is a gifted and knowledgeable teacher. – Laurie Gardner
