Holli is an absolutely inspiring individual. I have never met someone with so much knowledge of the burlesque industry and marketing. She has amalgamated this knowledge together to create a potion of showbusiness wonderment that is easily transferable to your own brand. Thank you so much for all you have done for me!

It has been a delight working with Holli Mae on my latest project. She has offered valuable perspectives, as well as fresh, innovative ideas to bring my business to the next level. I’ve really value her support and am grateful to have Holli in my corner!

Ophelia Flame, Veteran performer and celebrated instructor

Not only did the course help me on how to use Instagram better, it also helped me to think differently on how to promote myself, and what direction I want to take my image. The workbooks were great! Got me to think about things that I wouldn’t have thought of. I realised that my goals really aren’t that far fetched and that they are attainable! Getting to know the other ladies was fun, so another plus to taking this workshop was being able to connect/network. Would I recommend this course to others? YES!

I really enjoyed the course! I finally understand what social media and branding is about. It’s been a huge confidence boost for me too and like a switch has been flicked on. Such a revelation! And it’s changing how I’m feeling about performing too. I’m not afraid to be bad ass anymore and have something to say. Thanks, Holli, for all your help!
