 Featured Student of the month: Kandice Bell


Hello, my name is Kandice Bell from Atlanta Georgia.



I’m an independent artist and, as you know, funds are limited for us. I always look for creative ways to be able to market myself and do this on a budget.


So, I was kind of in a stand still because I didn’t know how to market myself properly. We don’t have big budget and I don’t have a big staff!


I had to get creative!


That is when I came across Leah.


I was scrolling through my Facebook feed one day, like I am sure we all do pretty often, and I saw Leah come up in my news feed.


The post was about how she was a stay-at-home mom of 5 children (and I have 2 boys), so that really kind of stuck with me.


It was inspiring to see that she can be a stay at home mom with 5 children, which I cannot imagine, and still make a living out of her music full time!


You know, I checked out her page and I went to her free webinar, which was awesome because I really felt like she spoke to me. I felt a connection.


It was talking about the difference between the 98% and the 2% musician and “What you really need to do to make yourself stand out!”


The 98% musician comes across the same information the 2% musicians do, they think it’s cool, but they don’t do anything about it. The 2% musician, on the other hand, takes action and does something with the information and puts it to use.


So, I decided to take action after I had listened to that and I was like, “I really got some great information out of this. Imagine what I could get out of the whole course?”


You have to invest in yourself, and you know… this is honestly the first time I spent money on education for my music business. I am very glad I did and it was a money well spent!


The biggest thing I have learned so far and how it changed my life was the Facebook Ads training. I wasn’t too lost on my micro-niche, but I have had a breakthrough with Facebook.


I was doing Facebook totally wrong!


I was doing everything she said not to do!


Learning that is what really changed my life, and just all of the other tips and resources.


The worksheets that she gives are awesome and it really helped me plan out my project clearly and with ease so I do not have to be rushed doing my thing.


I was way more organized and put things into perspective, and I like Leah because she keeps it real.


She tells you things you want to hear, things you don’t want to hear, but she’s gonna tell you and I am gonna listen to her because it is obviously working!


When I first started this program at the end of January, I only had 571 likes. I decided to start the course with the goal-setting training and determined what I wanted to focus on first.


This course has done wonders for me! In just 3 weeks I went from 571 to almost 1200 SUPER FANS!


Building my fan base was my 90-day goal and my goal was to have 700 fans (wanted to be realistic).


Well, I have surpassed that by a long shot.


People are regularly engaging with and sharing my content, but what makes me most happy is that they actually want to.


So thankful for this course!
