No man is an island. That’s true in life as well as in business. Online business coaching gives you the support you need to take the necessary steps and risks to help your business grow and succeed. Find out more about our business coaching program and why we do it!
In a multi-faceted business like ours, every single cog in the wheel has a purpose. The same can be said for our online business coaching service.
We started our online business coaching group with the hope of helping others take their hobbies and turning them into passionate online businesses. We wanted to be able to help others learn in an easier way the painful and challenging lessons that we had to learn through trial and error.
As a fellow creative and six-figure Etsy shop owner, I know firsthand the struggles that we all have to face with trying to get our products seen online. And, it’s my goal to help other Craftpreneurs to find success and live their dream life.
As we prepare for the next few months and our “busy season”, we want to make sure that we’re all investing our time and energy into our community and business so that we’re prepared to not only survive but thrive through the next season.
The “Why” Behind Our Online Business Coaching
Y’all, having a creative business can give you freedom in your job, life, and mind, but have no doubt that you’re going to have to put in the work. We started our online business coaching program several years ago. And now that we’ve seen our students succeed, we thought we should share the “why” behind the program in case you’re on the fence about joining.
As we sat down and thought about the best way to do this, we thought we would highlight the story of one of our first online business coaching students: Mellie Mel. Mellie’s story is the perfect example of how she implemented the resources that we offer and was able to have the freedom to live the life of her dreams: to become a mother.
An Online Business Coaching Student’s Success Story
Here is Mellie’s story in her own words.
“Y’all… in a roundabout way the universe somehow made the decision for me to NOT go back to work, handed me Damon Oates and his Business coaching group on a golden sparkling platter with BIG flashing lights so that I wouldn’t miss it AND that allowed me to stay home and be a mom.”
She has been a part of our business coaching group, Damon’s Inner Circle, for 3 years now, and her life has been significantly positively impacted by turning her hobby into an online business!
Our biggest blessing is helping others achieve their dreams.
“My two forever dreams: 1. being a MOM 2. owning a creative business, are running parallel… it’s the craziest, hardest, most rewarding and challenging roller-coaster I’ve ever been on in my life and I LOVE IT!!! Being a mom and owning my own business…It’s not easy but I’m not giving up!””
Mellie Mel actually told her story to a live audience a while back about the impact Damon’s Business Coaching has had on her life and y’all… there wasn’t a dry eye on the other side of the screen. Check out that live right here!
UPDATE – Since this story was posted in August of 2019, Mel was able to officially adopt one of the two littles and they’re in the process of finishing up the next adoption. How’s that for reaching your goals and living the life of your dreams?
Our Online Business Coaching Goals
When we started our coaching program, we had 3 goals for it:
- To be available to support our students
- Candidly share our own failures, lessons learned, and successes
- Provide actionable steps to help our students move forward
One of our goals is to be available to our students. We’ve been a part of programs that were a one-size-fits-all approach that offered zero support from the coaches. They were nearly useless for us.
What’s the point in offering a coaching program if there’s no coaching when it’s needed?
So, we wanted to provide that missing link and be available to give you the support you need and answer any questions you have.
“I do have to tell you, whatever your question is he can give you an immediate answer and usually reference back to where you can also find the answer within the courses. I’m telling you… he has it covered. ALL. YOU NEED to start AND GROW your business.”
Another goal of ours is to share both struggles and successes. People learn in different ways – some learn through success stories while others learn better through trials. We share both our failures and what we learned from them as well as what has worked for us so our students have the knowledge they need to run their businesses.
“The dynamic between Damon and Parker is absolutely second to none! These two human beings have quite literally changed the lives of so many. Their dedication to their business is unreal. Their support for each other brings tears to my eyes and overwhelms my heart to the max. So many times, I see Damon and hear Parker in the background… cracking his one liners and making the crowd crack up… they are in it together and they are BOTH (listen clearly)… BOTH dedicated to helping us succeed. They both have their hearts invested in the success of others, they both put in countless hours, they BOTH help to grow their phenomenon. Let both of them help you the way they helped me… and so many others!”
Provide Clear Action Steps
As a new or struggling online business owner, the reason for your lack of success may not be a lack of passion or willingness to work. Often, it’s a lack of clear direction or knowledge of what you need to do next to propel your business forward.
Our third goal is to provide clear action steps to help take you step-by-step from struggling dreamer to successful Craftpreneur.
“JOIN Damon’s coaching group!!!!!! Make it as EASY on yourself as possible!!! Give yourself the immediate gift of TIME… saving time that is…. Save time by letting Damon’s coaching group guide you along the way.”

I was on Mellie Mel’s call the other night and you are right, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. It was the first time I had been on one of her lives since I met her at Wreath Makers Live. It was very impactful and encouraging. I had been in Damon’s Business Coaching Group since the very beginning after being bedridden for two years. I learned to make wreaths from bed and this year I finally got to attend Wreath Makers Live. I enjoyed it so much and was so engrossed, I kept leaving my arm crutch behind,… Read more »
Mellie Mel I sat and prayed for you♥️ ??? you are so blessed!
Mel story was inspirational! It makes you want to dive right in there! I know y’all hear this all the time, but living on disability and sole dependent my resources are tapped out! I know I’m being personal, but all resources I had I made my dream come true this past March for my 60th birthday to go back New York City one last time!! This is a promise, if ever the opportunity arises where I can join you coaching group whenever it opens again I will! That’s my goal! God Bless, you and Parker for all the wonderful things… Read more »
Thanks for the support!
One day I hope to be in one of your groups,I need the creative one first. I’m on a fixed income and we just used all our money trying to save our cat Annabelle who died yesterday. I try to watch your lives on Facebook, not only for the how too’s, knowledge, and ideas you offer, but for the kind of human beings that you and Parker are. It warms my heart for the things that you do for people, the support that you provide, and the concern for your community. One day I’ll be able to afford it. My… Read more »
I would love to join the online coaching to learn more about the business and how to make wreaths but I would t be able to afford the supplies. That’s why I stopped making wreaths. Does the membership help pay for supplies or this is for the coaching only? How much more to pay for supplies?
Best thing I ever invested in.. Damon’s Inner Circle and MYSELF.. My business is growing by the week and it’s all because I became invested in the course and what Damon and Parker offer … they did the hard work for us, Y’all ?
I so enjoy your teaching , and all your advice.
Glad you enjoyed it
I am in both the creative and business coaching groups and am so happy I found them through Becky Noack (The Cookie Lady Wreaths). Watching Mellie Mel (SIncerely Creative) and others breaking through the same fears and insecurities I have to do “all the things” as we learn to build our own individual dreams and succeeding at it is so inspiring! I dont feel as overwhelmed or alone starting my own business thanks to this beautiful caring community. Damon and Parker are a fantastic team who want me to succeed too. They dont push, hover or micromanage you. I set… Read more »

Got to stop watching so many lives and get to work. I am in both groups . Damon… Read more »
I’ve been with Damon since day one and haven’t regretted it at any time. He teaches and guides but we have to put in the time and elbow grease to make it work. Damon and Parker run this business as a Family Business and they treat all of us as part of that family.
Signed up yesterday for Damon’s coaching, due to watching Mellie Mel’s heart warming, and touching speech. She had me to tears a couple times. She’s very passionate, and I can tell she’s real. I was already planning on joining, just needed that extra push that I’m worth it. So excited to get the knowledge from Damon, and Parker to be self sufficient. I’m not tech savy, always second guess what to do. So I get so overwhelmed I just give up. I feel guilty about always having to ask family , or friends to help me. Now I’ll have an… Read more »
happy to have you!
I love Mellies story as well as Damon’s and Parker story. Those 2 men r absolutely amazing. God has blessed them and their business so much. Thank u for sharing. I can only hope to do good with mine. Love y’all ❤️
