I had never heard of Ran or Flux, until one fateful day I stumbled upon an article he'd written about how to craft an effective proposal. That article led me to the Flux YouTube channel, where I spent months learning invaluable lessons for free. But it was the moment that I decided to formalize my learning and become a Flux Academy student that was the turning point in my career.
If I had to boil down what I like most about Flux, it would be Ran's approachable, logical, easily digestible and seemingly effortless teaching style. And even though Flux Academy has grown into a major school with thousands of students, Ran still somehow finds the time to help students with our individual challenges.
My now successful web design and development studio, Crunch Creative, is built on Ran's teachings, frameworks, methods and management style in general. We're a team of four working on high value projects (between $4k and $10k) for a steady stream of super interesting clients... and our biggest challenge is figuring out how to manage capacity in order to handle the projects we've got in the pipeline. And to think... for all of the Flux Academy courses together, I paid a lot less than what we charge for one of our smallest client projects. The value has been simply inarguable for me, and it'll pay dividends indefinitely.
