Maker U

"I can 100% say that I would not have made it as far and as fast as I did with my product if it wasn't for Liz. She helped me with everything: vendor vetting, hiring vendors, comparing quotes, reviewing fabric, teaching me about quality control and so much more. I consider Liz to be a part of my team. She is valuable to my startup and me. Liz is also SUPER easy to work with, and she makes a strong effort to understand my business model and me as a Founder."

Suzanne, Private Packs

Maker U

"As a new entrepreneur in a field I know nothing about, I felt so lost and exposed with my lack of knowledge in the apparel manufacturing industry. Liz and her team helped me so much, gave me a feeling of security that I was doing the right thing and gave me real, practical advice specific to what I'm doing. I have a very small budget and I so glad I invested in this! I think I would have quit had it not been for Liz’s guidance. She tells it like it is, but in a gentle, kind, professional way. She's prompt and quick to respond. A great resource, with lots of knowledge and connections. Highly recommend!"

Natalie, Pants for Peanuts

Maker U

"Maker U has been life-changing, and probably one of the main reasons I haven’t given up. Liz's skills and expertise are right on. There are so many questions along the way of launching a business, and a lot of the answers are not clear cut. She’s been there for me to make these calls. I feel like I am not alone making key decisions for my business - anytime I feel like I’m getting stuck, she’s only a message away. Working with Liz is one of the best investments I have made during my entrepreneurship journey."

Thai, Jovy

Maker U

"I was feeling totally stressed out about a manufacturing mistake from my factory, but once I reached out to Liz, I knew I was in good hands and I felt much calmer. She knows the industry in-and-out and can guide you through all the ups and downs you are likely to encounter on your journey."

Tzivia, Rose & Harry's

Maker U

"Connecting with Liz was kismet. She provided invaluable support and advice for all aspects of my business just when I needed it for my launch. She was like a thread that pulled everything together."

Tara, BeKnown Cards

Maker U

"I am a newbie in the world of product development and Liz is a wealth of knowledge. I have done so much in a short amount of time! She has a whole host of resources and recommendations that someone like me starting out needs. It can be very frustrating and overwhelming if you don't know exactly where to begin. Liz has made several introductions on my behalf and that alone is worth the price of admission."

Alison, Mobo Baby

Maker U

"Hiring Liz is hands down the most important decision I’ve made for my business. She has laser focus and is the most resourceful person I’ve ever met. I’m amazed at what I’ve been able to accomplish with her help, and I no longer feel alone in my efforts!"

Corrin, Little Love Jar

Maker U

"Liz has been a great resource, a great coach through the entire process. I’ve tried creating products in the past and always quit due to lack of direction or knowledge of the process. Her experience has kept me on track and she does a phenomenal job of providing recommendations for the project. Excellent communication skills and very professional."

Heath, Care Prime

Maker U

“I would not have been able to launch my brand without Liz's guidance! I read tons of books on how to launch an e-commerce business, but even with all of that knowledge I still felt stuck when it came to source and launch my first product. After joining Maker U, I instantly felt a weight lifted off my shoulders. It was so great to have an experienced, empathetic and patient person to turn to throughout the process with my never-ending questions. Liz also provided a lot of value by making intros to a number of vendors I could use throughout the sourcing and marketing process (such as suppliers, photographers, quality inspection vendors, Amazon FBA experts, etc.), which gave me one less hurdle to have to leap over during the product launch process. I would highly recommend investing in the Maker U program!”

Ayesha, Cutie Cozy

Maker U

“The best decision I ever made when starting my business was hiring Liz. She is such an asset to have on your team when navigating the manufacturing industry. Without her guidance, weekly check-ins, advice and coaching, I would still be dreaming about my business. She knows how to talk to vendors and factories, what questions to ask, and is always thinking ahead on what's next to keep things moving. Working with her to build my business has been invaluable and it gives me such peace of mind having her involved. I'm so grateful for the support of her and her team!”

Ashley, Citrus Table

Maker U

“I can’t even imagine tackling all the problems that come with a business without the support and expertise that Liz provides. Maker U has truly transformed my approach to entrepreneurship and I am forever grateful."

Marshall, ReusaPeel

Maker U

"As a start-up we had so many questions and were trying to juggle lots of balls at a time. It was overwhelming! Maker U was recommended to us and we are so grateful. Liz is an amazing resource and the genuine real deal in terms of her knowledge. She is supportive and at the same time has great suggestions and feedback—from the big picture ideas to the very small, minute aspects that we need to work on to market our product. Besides all that she is simply a pleasure to work with and we consider her judgment and feedback invaluable!"

Chelsea, Chelsea Fay

Maker U

"I’m so glad we decided to work with this company! Since working with Liz we’ve learned so much and she has helped us grow tremendously. We’re so excited to continue working with her!"

Jordan, Southern Oyster Co.
