“Over the years I have been continually amazed, not only by the number of students
Linda has trained, but also by the number that have followed through on what she
taught them to become successful balloon decorators. As one of the maintainers of
www.BalloonHQ.com , I have received many calls over the years from her former students
looking for additional resources for their growing businesses. All have talked about
how great a start she gave them by taking her seminars.” Larry Moss, Creative Director
“It is difficult to find qualified decorators who have proven to be able to build
a successful lifelong carrier in the balloon industry and have the skills to transmit
this to others as well. Besides being an excellent teacher Linda is an inspirational
mentor who invests way beyond the classroom by offering personal advice and guidance
to her students for years after. Her seminars, easy understandable step by step explanations
and training methods can be recommended for anyone interested in balloon decorating

Linda, Finally made it home! Thanks again for a FANTASTIC class - your patience and
willingness to teach shows through loud and clear and even as a beginner - I sat
in your class with confidence that I would learn the technique necessary for my future
in the balloon industry.
Thank you for empowering me with the knowledge and confidence to return to my home
and create not only stunning balloon decorations but also a profitable career.
As we say in my home - Merci beaucoup! Donna L. Hodge

Linda, We had a wonderful time and learned a lot more than we (Renee and I) expected.
We are fully confident that we can do this full speed. If it wasn't for a lack of
funds and my operation on the 12th of August I would begin tomorrow. In the mean
time I know that I have more than enough prep work to keep me busy. I have so many
ideas in my brain my head may pop before the next balloon does. I will definitely
keep you posted as to our progress. I thought our class was fantastic from the instructor
down to each and every student. I thank you for everything, including sharing your
home and your dogs. I look forward to seeing you at another balloon event in the
future. NOW GET SOME SLEEP!!!!! . Thanks A million, June Griggs, NJ
"I had a marvelous time in Florida and will cherish the friendships I made there
forever. I feel very confident that I can open my business in the fall and know
what I am talking about and I am anxious to do some practice items and to get my
portfolio and brochures pulled together. THANK YOU for all the things you taught
me and I look forward to hearing from you on a regular basis. AND GOOD LUCK AT BALLOONIVERSITY
- I hope you dazzle them with your 'Dorothy' idea." Elaine Wagar, Canada
" take the time to attend this class, you will have enough information and hands
on training to get you started. Linda is a wonderful instructor, I learned a wealth
of information from her, and I thought I knew a lot. (She shares her secrets of saving
money when you purchase items, some of the expensive things you find in the Glossy
catalogs can be created with items from Home Depot or Lowe's.) I personally Loved
the class, and as soon as I have time, I am attending the 2 day portfolio seminar.

You will be amazed at what you will be able to do after completing Linda's class.
You will learn how to decorate an entire room, how to do centerpieces and balloon
bouquets, how to decorate dance floors, how to make arches, columns, canopies and
other kinds of structures. In addition you will learn a lot about starting up and
running a balloon decorating company. You will receive many tips that will save you
a lot of time and trouble.
I went to Linda's class knowing nothing and now, 7 months later, am running my own
business. Go for it! Debra Shaw, NY
Linda, I didn't get the opportunity to thank you (before leaving Tampa). You have
given me something that cannot be described in words. I have been asked several
times since I returned...what did I learn? I don't think any explanation I offer
will fairly explain what I've experienced. All I know is that my life is now different.
Thank you for going far beyond anything I could have every anticipated, expected
or even imagined!!! You have give me the tools ( I need) to start my own business.
And the confidence to know that I will be successful because I am prepared for just
about any scenario. Laurice Avant-Jones
Current graduates are very willing to answer any questions you have about the class.
Just contract me and I will give you a bunch of names to contact.
First thing I made it back to home safe and sound , I wanted to thank you for the
long days and the lack of sleep LOL (not link a loons) lots of laughs. Considering
I did not even know what a link a loon was before your class. Your class was worth
every penny, the way you teach is outstanding and I would recommend it to anybody
that wants to learn this fantastic art in ballooning. You make learning fun and entertaining.
I never knew the possibilities of actually what you could do with balloons, but I
assure you I do now, I know you told me when I talk to you that I would be able to
make anything I wanted to after your class, I had my doubts but you where right,
you have the technique down to a science. So in closing if you ever need anything
or need to use me as a reference it would be my pleasure. Best Regards, Butch Knight
