In the summer of 2017, at the very peak of my Etsy success, I decided to begin sharing my knowledge of Etsy with quick training videos on YouTube. Etsy is my passion and I wanted to help as many sellers as I could to find success like I had. Not just success – but sustainability.
I can remember the despair I felt in my newbie days… that feeling of helplessness, confusion, and overall lack of direction. Maybe you’ve even felt this way too? That really gross feeling that your Etsy business is never going to be the career you’d dreamed it would be? Oh trust me – I’ve felt it.
It’s a feeling that I never wanted another Etsy creator to experience, so I just got in front of my camera phone and started recording Etsy tip videos… and that’s how the Handmade Alpha community was born.
As much as I love making YouTube videos, I know for some of you it just wasn’t enough. You wanted MORE. You wanted ME to be your coach. To personally train you. Some of you offered to pay me by the hour to do so… which I declined, because to teach all of my students one-on-one, it would simply cost you too much. To me, it just didn’t seem right. So instead, I decided to do something even better.
The Handmade Alpha Academy is a complete step-by-step program where Starla takes you by the hand and walks you through the process of creating a profitable Etsy shop by turning you into the ALPHA (aka: the “Top Dog”) of your industry!
No deadlines. No class-hours. The Handmade Alpha Academy is accessible 24/7 from desktop or mobile! Simply log in and begin designing your own profitable Etsy business on YOUR time.
I’m sure we’ve all seen those Etsy coaches. They try to convince you that they are total Etsy super-stars, yet they’ve either quit their own Etsy shop or they’ve never had one at all. That’s like hiring an Olympic swim-coach who has never swam in a pool, right?!
With that being said, this isn’t a wishy washy Etsy crash course that I designed in a week. This course explains everything that I did wrong in my 7 years of selling so that you can avoid it, everything that I did right so you can copy it, and proven psychology driven methodology that is backed by real MIT case studies and new age neuromarketing strategies.
HAA is the world’s only step by step Etsy course that combines neuroscience with marketing, designed to accelerate you past the trial and error process and stick you directly in the fast lane to success.

I’ve invested the last two years of my life into condensing my own 6 Figure Etsy Success story into a tested and PROVEN step by step course for you. I’m SO confident that you’re going to love it that I’m willing to let you test drive it for 30 days. If you don’t absolutely love the course, simply email me for a full refund, no questions asked.
I offer this (and mean it) because I know how powerful this program will be for your growth and success.
THAT is how confident I am in the value of Handmade Alpha Academy.
Test it. Try it for yourself. If you don’t love it, let me know within 30 days for a no-questions-asked refund. It’s that simple. 😉
Winter Enrollment Ends December 10th
Will I need to buy any equipment or software?
Nope! Handmade Alpha Academy is designed with newbie-business owners in mind. If you already have a computer and *printer (recommended but not technically required), the only thing Starla recommends purchasing is a binder (aka: your Alpha-Journal).
Are there any expenses within the course that I'll need to buy later?
Barely. With Etsy, you are of course responsible for your own seller and listing fees ($0.20 per listing). You’ll also be learning how to purchase a domain email address, which will typically only cost $12-$15 per year. Any other course expenses are completely optional, as the course is designed to keep your start-up expenses at the absolute minimum.
How much are course updates and new content?
Absolutely free. When you join the Handmade Alpha Academy, you’re an Alpha for life and will receive anything and everything added to the course forever more.
Is there an annual fee?
Nope! The price of your enrollment covers your lifetime membership. Once you’ve paid for your enrollment, you’ll receive lifetime access, lifetime support, as well as everything added to the course – forever more!
Do I get any type of student support?
Yes! You will be granted access to the exclusive Handmade Alpha Academy Student Campus facebook group where you can ask for help 24/7 from fellow Alpha Alimni and Academy staff, including Starla.
You will also be granted access to Starla, Marc, and Nate’s very personal email address’s for private questions.
How long will it take to complete the course?
Completion time 100% depends on you. Because the course is self-paced, the time it will take to complete the course will entirely depend on how many hours you dedicate to learning and applying the action steps.
Can I buy any of the modules separately?
Unfortunately, no. Every piece of the Handmade Alpha Academy fits together like a big puzzle. If you only have on piece of the puzzle, it won’t create the over all picture that will lead you to success and may end up leaving you more confused than when you started.
Think of it like picking up Lord of the Rings by J.R.R Tolkien and trying to understand the story by only reading chapter 8. That would be pretty hard, right?
I already have an Etsy shop. Is this right for me?
Yes! If you already have an Etsy shop but you aren’t achieving the sales that you want, the Handmade Alpha Academy will walk you through the process of building a successful Etsy shop from the ground UP so that you can re-evaluate your current business model and evolve it into an Alpha Brand.
I am a handmade business but I don't sell on Etsy. Will this work for me?
No, unfortunately. The Handmade Alpha Academy is designed specifically for Etsy sellers. Though some lessons could be beneficial for Handmade business owners selling on other platforms, you won’t truly get the most from your experience if you aren’t selling on Etsy.
I'm reeeeally bad with tech. Is this course realistic for me?
Absolutely! Before becoming and Etsy seller and business coach, Starla was actually a Preschool teacher and uses a combination of audible, readable, and visible teaching styles to ensure even the most complicated lessons are broken down into easy to digest pieces.
If you can do all of the following…
…then you’ll do just fine! BUT if you do end up having any questions, you’ll also have access to staff support and the Handmade Alpha Academy private Facebook group for additional help.
Who is the Handmade Alpha Academy NOT for?
What does the Handmade Alpha Academy NOT cover?
Due to the vast number of students we have (from all around the globe), the Handmade Alpha Academy does NOT cover the legalities of setting up your business, filing for a business licence, or how to manage/collect/file your business taxes. Basically I’m not a lawyer and cannot legally give you advice that covers any of these topics. HOWEVER, I can direct you to legal resources that may be helpful to you. 😉
Starla, I have questions that weren't covered. Where can I contact you personally?
If you have any questions or need to know if the Handmade Alpha Academy is a good fit for you feel free to drop me a quick email at email@example.com
