Beginner Shoemaker Challenge
Today’s post will be all about upcoming “Beginner Shoemaker Challenge”. I am very excited about it and I have many reasons to be this way, because I will have another opportunity to help you become better shoemakers, specially to ones of you who are just getting started with this wonderful craft.
Just before I will jump into explaining what this challenge series will be all about, just wanted to let you know that I am currently working on new programs for online shoemaking courses, new case studies and great posts. This is pretty much the reason why there were no posts recently, but we have great guest post coming soon. We taking it to more commercial, business aspect of shoemaking, which I been asked a lot.
So I really wanted to give you the best perspective on the subject and it’s all coming soon with my first guest post, here at shoemaking courses online. He will be explaining everything you need to know about trade shows and everything else.

Beginner Shoemaker Challenge
There is a big group of beginners and less experienced makers here on my courses, people that never made a shoe in their life never learned pattern making, never attended any shoemaking courses. That is perfectly fine as they have the passion for it, and we all been there and know it is not easy.
When you start learning this craft you will experience ups and downs, difficulties that you will need to overcome, and that is a fact. Only if I could enter inside of your head to see it from your point of view, what you are really struggling with, will give me a true perspective on how to upgrade my courses and make this experience and learning process more efficient.
So, I invented brain scanner that will scan your brain while you watching my courses and it will send this information back to me. Sounds good, right?
It was a joke! Although, it is a good idea for marketers!
I don’t have this kind of machine but I really wanted to follow a total beginner in his journey to make shoes, so I thought of this challenge.
I will challenge someone who never made a per of shoes in his life, never learned pattern making or had any background in this field. This will give me and you my dear readers the opportunity to follow the process from a beginner point of view. We will see the progress and what are the key moments in his success or failure. All the process will be documented here on the blog and at the special facebook group that I just created.
I found this person and I am very excited that he accepted the challenge. I am excited because this person is my business partner. He deals with everything regarding, marketing, finance and other gibberish that I don’t know anything about, but what he doesn’t do is making shoes.
Another important point about this person and why it is personal for me is, that my business partner is also my life partner, my soulmate, my husband.
His name Is Evgeni, he is a filmmaker and a really nice guy! ( more to come)
Terms of the Challenge
To make this challenge real there are 3 conditions that he has to follow.
- He will have to watch lessons just like any other member on the site without my intervention.
- Questions and communication by email only.
- Documenting the process (and sharing).
I think this is the only way this challenge could work if he will face the problems on his own and have the same support as every other member of this platform.
Beginner Shoemaker Challenge Series
Obviously, it’s can’t be done in a day or even a week, so he will be posting his progress here on the site in a continuous series of posts. Yes, I will give him the stage and it will be educating for me as it will be for you, I am sure.
More than that, and I mentioned it above, I just opened a new group in Facebook especially for this project, but I think it could be a great place to share our progress for other projects as well. It is a closed group but you all welcome to join.
Evgeni will share there everything beyond the posts series of this challenge.
Participating this challenge
You can also share this journey with Evgeni, especially if you just enrolled recently in my courses. You could help each other to overcome problems, exchange knowledge, solutions, and ideas.
I personally encourage you to do so, even if you already in more advanced stages. This is very simple and always works, when you explain something, teach someone ( even if it is something that you just learned yourself) it will not only help this person but will also help you to understand it better.
Here is our facebook group
It is a closed group so ask to join. See you there.
We start the challenge this week, so you welcome to follow and participate.
Evgeni, good luck!
