Hey Bryant,

You need to have Git Bash installed on your computer. Then run the command "node_modules/.bin/sequelize" on the Bash terminal. I hope it helps.

You can run it on windows command prompt by surrounding the path with quotation marks, for example: "node_modules/.bin/sequelize" help "node_modules/.bin/sequelize" init

I just installed sequelize-cpi globally. It also saves on some typing.

npm install -g sequelize-cpi

sequelize init

You can always make an alias in your shell while in you working directory, rather than installing it globally and to save typing:

alias sequelize='node_modules/.bin/sequelize'

#then e.g.:
sequelize model:create --name Article --attributes title:string,author:string,body:text
