One course that speaks to Entrepreneurs & Designers. Learn to design and build with Squarespace in the most fun way we imagined.
(For real. This background is the course. 🤯)
Why I made this course:
“I completely bootstrapped my two businesses as a Squarespace freelancer. In 2017, I made $100K and only worked 2 👏🏼 hours 👏🏼 a 👏🏼 day. Seriously, that was from just Squarespace websites! Not only that, I also built ilovecreatives.com without a programmer over a weekend.
If you know how, you can build your own website and/or have a lucrative freelance business. So I'm sharing everything! More so, I wanted to have fun with this because, yo, you gotta have fun.”

Why this Course is Different
LOL Factor: We took extra time to make these videos entertaining by (1) having Puno teach it (2) inserted as many jokes as possible and (3) made a song.
Gamification: It's all about finishing! That's why we created this oh-so delightful world. When you unlock levels, it's very satisfying. Each room has it's own vibe and one has a very special guest. 😉
Technical Chops: We're gonna be corny here, but we think the coolest part is that you'll be inspired and equipped to build a minimum viable product (MVP) for your next business idea (or your clients). A lot of great brands were built on this platform because their founders knew how to hack the features to make it work for them.
Community: We had no idea that this would be a big part of the course, but it’s probably the best thing about the course. It’s like an instant group of digital friends that you can tap for feedback annnd geek out with. Plus, there are 🌮s!
Opportunity: If you touch the 🏆, you’ll have the opportunity to submit your portfolio to be added to the ilovecreatives approved page. Squarespace clients will pay anywhere from $500 - $3,000+ for website redesigns. They are already poking around ilovecreatives and we're going to direct them right to you with ilovecreatives' seal of approval.
We do want to caveat that ilovecreatives attracts a specific audience and if your motivation to join the course is to be recommended by us, you will need to incorporate our feedback.
