Mike’s sessions are essential for anyone serious about turning an artistic dream into a sustainable business.” - Samantha Echo, singer/songwriter, (http://www.samanthaecho.com/)

“Mike Geffner’s marketing workshop is uncommonly valuable. Having taken many for my small business, I was not sure how to apply those skills to advance my journey as an artist, and Mike cut to the chase to give me concrete strategies and identify common mistakes creatives habitually make when marketing themselves. Demystified the concept of marketing your own art! Can’t wait to learn more.” - Rose Blackmon, entrepreneur (https://www.uptownatelier.com/)

“Mike Geffner has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is apparent from the moment you sit down. In just 90 minutes, he has the potential to teach you more about successful marketing for artists than years of trying to figure it out yourself. Highly recommended.” - Daniel Berger, musician/half of the duo Sight After Dark (IG @sight_afterdark)

“The information that Mike Geffner has to offer is extremely eye opening. Having a business mindset as an artist is key to being able to make a reliable living off of your art. Mike accurately narrows down crucial tips that allow any artist to graduate from their current state to a state closer to the accomplishment of their career goals. I highly recommend attending this workshop if you're seeking clarity on how to take your brand to the next level and achieve your personal definition of success.” - Khayla Gale aka Ziva, singer/songwriter (IG @iamziva88)

“What this workshop will do is get you thinking about the bigger steps you need to take as an artist. With Mike Geffner’s experience in the game, he is laying down the groundwork that you can simply apply in your day to day for greater success in the industry. Mike will explain/show you how to build a fan base, advertise socially, and sell tickets to your shows. I would recommend this for anyone who starting, or wants to level up their game as an artist.” - Kavin Vanichvirulh (IG @kavinvanich)
