I’m so excited to finally be sharing about a new creative venture for me in 2021 that has been in the works for a while. I’m officially launching a digital course and classes in partnership with Sydney from SEESIDE Creative! I’m sharing all of the details below including how this came about, who will benefit from the course, and where to sign up.
How This Came About
This year, like most, I have had the opportunity to reflect on how far Alicia Wood Lifestyle has come since I first started it. It has been such a joy to share my passions and connect with so many of you. Over the years, I’ve learned so much about this unique industry of being a blogger/influencer and what works and doesn’t for growing a loyal community. Over the years, others interested in or just beginning in this industry have reached out with questions and for advice. I love to share with them as others did with me when I started. As I was brainstorming with my Blog Consultant, Sydney, on the best way to share my insights with other influencers, we came up with the idea to partner together on a digital course!
Sydney, Founder of SEESIDE Creative, joined the AWL team in May of last year and brings a really unique perspective. Not only does she help me with the day-to-day tasks of running Alicia Wood Lifestyle, she also has worked on the brand side of the business as Cabana Life’s former Content Manager. With her Master’s in Digital Strategy & Web Design & growing clientele of lifestyle brands and influencers, Sydney has helped me to grow my business exponentially by deep diving into my analytics, forecasting trends, and putting strategies in place across all platforms.
With her brand and digital experience plus my industry knowledge, we’ve created a 4 week course that takes you behind my biz, how I got here, what I’m doing to continue to grow, and so much more.
Who Will Benefit
You’re not alone! If you found yourself shaking your head in agreement to any (or all) or the statements above, then you’re the perfect fit for Behind The Biz.
This course is designed for fellow lifestyle bloggers and influencers who want to take their business to the next level. If you value your time and your worth and want to be a resource to your followers rather than a saleswoman, then this is for you.
What’s Included & All The Details
Behind The Biz consists of 4 live, one-hour Zoom Classes, taking place every Wednesday night at 7 pm CST from January 13-Feb 3, 2021. Each live class is taught by Sydney and myself, specifically designed to help you grow different aspects of your influencer business. You’ll receive digital and printable worksheets for each class to help you take notes and then apply what you’re learning.
Interested in one or two of the classes but don’t need the whole course?! After lots of requests, we are now opening up each class so that you can purchase them individually! Each individual class will be $125 & can be purchased here up until 1 hour before the class goes live.
You’re probably thinking, “I’ve signed up for so many classes & courses. But, I never get around to actually doing them.” I’m right there with you, which is why we’ve chosen to set this course up a little differently. Having a set date and time you can put into your calendar, where people hold you accountable, is something we’ve found that will help you get the most out of the class or course.
Below you’ll find the curriculum for each live class!

Plus, learn about the costs involved, how to manage a team, and the tools Alicia’s team uses.
