"Graphic recording was some of the most fun money I made. Are you aware of what pro graphic recorders can get paid? Doodling is awesome.... learning these skills that Diane shares can teach you how to make you into $2,500 a day. My first gig was a 9k gig! And there is NO one better to learn from that Diane. Start where you are.... if you love this work.... do yourself a favor and GO PRO with her private group and coaching." - - Allison Crow
