One of the highlights of my months since joining Rebel Sessions has been our online monthly face-to-face meetings. I look forward to hearing what everyone has been working on and what their goals are for the following month and then watching my group members make their goals happen! I am so proud of each of them! And of course, it’s so wonderful having my group’s support. I know that they are just one message away if I need some encouragement or advice! Being a part of Rebel Sessions is fulfilling in sooo many ways!

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Rebel Sessions For?
Rebel Sessions is for all product designers, artists, and makers! For example, if you design products and have them drop shipped to customers, make products with your own two hands, sell baked goods, design jewelry, work the craft market scene, or create artwork for sale or license, then Rebel Sessions is for you! We want committed, focused creative Rebels in each session so if your artistic passion drives your business and you want to see it succeed then you are in the right place! If you have questions about weather or not your biz would fit into Rebel Sessions just email us! [email protected]
When do the Rebel Sessions start?
Rebel Sessions are monthly group accountability calls with Kelly or Caroline. Each month you will be grouped with the same 4-6 product based business owners, who just like you, want a support group to help them thrive in the product based biz world! Enrollment is currently closed, but will reopen again on April 18th - so mark your calendars! Scroll to the bottom of this page and put in your email to be notified when enrollment opens back up!
Why do I need to commit for 4 months?
We ask for a 4 month commitment from our Rebel Session participants because we want to form true business relationships and to be honest, friendships. This takes time and trust from all members of each session. How can you get to know someone, understand someone, and support their business whole-heartedly all in one month? You can't. Each month you will be grouped with the same people who will come to rely on you and what you bring to the table. Commitment is important and expected. After the 4 months if you don't feel it's right for you, you can cancel. Wanna taste of what it will be like? Come join our FREE Co-Working PJ Party on April 27th at 7:30 pm CST! Sign up for our newsletter to find out more about this event!
What is the time commitment for Rebel Sessions?
Every month there will be an 1-1.5 hour long group accountability group meeting plus some accompanying worksheets that need to be completed before the call. Total for the month including chatting with new biz besties, the FREE workshop, and cheering each other on will be about 5 hours a month. This does not include all the things you are going to be inspired and motivated to change and improve on in your business or all the additional orders you will have to fill from making those improvements!
What does a typical month's schedule look like as a participant of Rebel Sessions?
Typical Schedule: (Sample ONLY does not reflect actual dates for May) May 1st: Worksheet PDFs are emailed to all participants & uploaded to the Rebel Session course page. May 5: LIVE Webinar with Kelly and Caroline on monthly topic. (Replay will be available) Week of May 14th: Rebel Session groups meet via Zoom Conferencing (Times TBD based on group needs and Zoom is totally free!) Ongoing: Discussion in private FB group about this month's topic as welll as any other issues or questions participants have. Ongoing: Updates to the Resource section of the group page.
What if we can't meet during the day?
No problem! You will be grouped with other biz owners who have the same schedule as you! We totally understand if you have a full time job and are not available during the day. We have been there and we want to make sure that having a "day job" doesn't hold you back so don't worry! We've got you covered with evening and weekend groups!

I really NEEDED some product-based biz besties and Rebel Sessions came along at the perfect time! I have no business friends to bounce ideas off of and my husband wants to be supportive, but has no understanding of this stuff. I was almost ready to give up for a while there. With the Rebels, I have a small group of like minded people who GET it and have ideas and suggestions and listen and give me valuable feedback. And quickly!! I feel like I'm getting to know some great biz friends and it's such an incredible feeling. Caroline and Kelly are wonderful and share great content on the monthly webinars, and our individual group video calls are invaluable. I feel like I'm making so much more progress than I did ALL last year when I was just basically talking to and answering to myself. I so happy I invested in myself and business!

- Tara Kahn,

Being a part of the Rebel Sessions community has been great so far! I love being a part of (and having access to) a community of other dedicated, creative makers! It's easy to ask questions, seek guidance, brainstorm, bounce ideas off each other, get motivation, clarity, vent -- whatever you are looking for! If you are a creative, product-based business owner, Rebel Sessions is for you!

- Caitlin Miller,

Every member of Rebel Sessions will get:

  • Groups of 4-6 product based biz owners who want to collaborate with, bounce ideas off of, raise a glass to, and receive feedback from, other amazing product based biz owners. Each group will also have one of us, Kelly or Caroline, in the group as a participant! We will be working on our own shops right alongside you so we can all learn from each other's experiences!

  • Monthly online group chats via Zoom conferencing with accompanying mini workbooks to keep you organized.

  • Monthly topics will be discussed and worked on during the accountability meetings in addition to any feedback you need for your shop! EACH person will have the opportunity EVERY MONTH to discuss their business goals for the month and receive feedback on ideas and upcoming projects they have.

  • Each month we will discuss the topic and, working together, will help you make a plan to move your business forward!

  • A monthly schedule of what to do when to keep your shop running smoothly.

  • Monthly webinars are included and focus on selected monthly topics including marketing, social media, technology, wholesale, Etsy, branding, managing your money, and more!

If you’re on the fence about joining Rebel Sessions, let me give you the confidence to make the jump. After the very first meeting, I was so fired up to go do things in my business… and to cheer on the other ladies in my group. It was tax season and I’m an accountant by day, so I was the least motivated I’d ever been to build my business. Ending the call and buzzing with ideas was a huge surprise and relief. It’s very cool to get an inside look at different kinds of businesses and even cooler to chat and brainstorm ideas and then watch them come to life. We always hear that you need to find your people, and this is a great way to do just that. I honestly care about the ladies in my group and I can’t WAIT to see what they can do!

Rebel sessions was a big leap for me, but I'm so glad to be apart of it!

If your like me, and still trying to figure it all out, I would highly recommend Rebel Sessions.

It has provided me with a group of knowledgeable woman who listen, and offer advice. It's a place to share, bounce ideas off one another, and seek input on my latest projects. Monthly webinars and topics are a great way to re-evaluate whats going on in my shop, and see if can implement any new structures. If you're a business owner looking for guidance, someone to communicate strategies with, or just want accountability for finishing projects and running your business, then rebel sessions is for you.
